Unfortunately my grandma passed away just as I was getting started, and the garage became a holding pen for all of her stuff. So many weeks later finally got it cleaned out and back to a usable two car garage!

Back to the rad and trans cooler!

Came up with these bad boys to space out the rad from the core support and secure it all nicely

Next up was the trans cooler, which I ended up whipping up this cute little piece of 1/8 in bar stock that the cooler itself bolted to. Then I drilled and tapped some threaded holes into the frame to attach the bar stock to. Came out nice IMO

And then the dreaded one step forward and two steps back reared its ugly head -.-

And wouldn't u know it, just two weeks prior I sold my last round port mani -.-

So fuck it was in order and it's getting a square port mani till I can slap a diff head on it
