Van’s radiator baffle construction
I started out by drilling the mounting holes I needed in the radiator baffles I constructed.
I had to do some minor adjustments to make it all fit as it should then I found some spray paint I had on hand and put a coat of paint on the baffles.
Installing the painted baffles
Baffles all mounted up
Wrong fuel line size
I worked on that pretty much all day with a bit of chair hopping thrown in too. I think I pretty much have this part of the project done so I moved on to seeing how I’m going to hook up the fuel lines and discovered I got one of the sizes of the fuel lines wrong. That means I need to order some large fuel line before I can hook up the gas lines.
Electric fan hook up, figuring out
I also spent some time figuring out how I’m going to hook up the radiators two electric fans but didn’t get to hooking them up yet.
Tomorrow will be a shop day as I still need a few things to get all the stuff hooked up and I need some more paint as I’m almost out and have been just using the colors I have left on hand.
So far it’s all coming together although a bit slow but that’s ok as long as I get it done.
