Last weekend I finally got around to building my steering setup:


1.5"x.25 wall DOM tubing, 3/4" rod ends with 5/8-grade 8 hardware

Now on to this weekends project:
New radiator, radiator cap, water pump, heater core, thermostat, and all new hoses.

Old Radiator, I sure was the cause of my cooling issue while crawling around. This was the fan side of the radiator, the other side is completely clean.
