At least the coolant leak then suppressed the possible impending fire from the torch.

Hi John, when it's time to bleed the coolant system -after it's fixed phone me. I will tell you the way that worked best for me when I did the install. The 3800 traps a lot of air.

Thanks Blair, better yet I'll have a latte with you, it won't be for a while for coolant bleed, the rad is empty and will be relocated back a bit and at an angle too.

OMG, what have you guys done!

Looks like you're preparing RBS for the scrap-metal guy.

I'm getting worried.

Relocated rad, it's mounted back and lower angle







Hood is sitting lower at a nice slope as you can see front frame to be cut to match hood.

Here is the RX7 nose, it was to wide and I cut it to fit, that was a long time ago (maybe 3-4 years).
Clynt and I took the nose down from the garage rafters, it was full of dust and place it in front and it wasn't going to
work out at all. It was way to wrong and too round. I'm going to use Tim's old stock nose that Dave gave me and I'll play
with that.



Way to round for me, the stock nose is easier to make changes to and it will fit
