Pressure of the van going to the paint shop was enough to kick me to try and make the inlet side air tight so I don’t end up with an engine full of filler dust!
After a bit of head scratching, looking through various databooks, measuring, cutting, grinding, drilling,powder coating I think I’ve come up with a decent looking and robust charge cooler radiator for the T3. It fits with round headlamps and I think it’s going to fit with squares too, only 4 small holes to drill too, best bit about that is that they are hidden.
After the earlier post about the do-nuts I received a few questions about them, so I’ve taken a few more pictures to illustrate the procedure for welding them up.
These do-nuts can give you nice, tight radius bends that you can’t achieve with mandrel bent tubes.
oh, and yeas yes, my TIG welding isn’t the tidiest, I know, I’m a learner!
