    Nothing earth shattering here. Finally cut the extra ears off my Contour fans and mocked up with the 24" radiator. [​IMG] Next is a Home Depot/Lowes run for 1/2"X 1/2" aluminum angle and hardware to mount the fan to the radiator, trim the radiator opening and mount the controller.

    I have about 500 more parts to install, including the engine to get this thing back on the road.

    I finally got around to mocking up my CVF Racing serpentine conversion. My whole build is a 20 plus year endeavor, between trying to remember where I left off, to adding the Classic Auto Air system.

    Anyway, this mockup was going great, until I got to the alternator mount. My original plan was to use a GM 10SI that I modified 20 years ago. CVF sell an adaptor kit that addresses this so with all parts in hand I installed everything. Well, the spacer/adapter was 1/2" short. One phone call to CVF to verify the part and the correct one is on it's way to my, no charge. I can't ask for anything more. They will get my recommendation and business for a quality product and even better customer service and support. Thank you CVF Racing.

    I will post more pics once I have it all installed and mocked up.

    Looks great. The beer came in the kit too?

    That would have been perfect, especially how hot it's been lately.

    Update. I called and sorted out the issue on Wednesday 8/30 at 10:00am PST, I had tracking info that afternoon and the part showed up Friday, 9/1 all the way from Minnesota.

    I got home from work this morning and finished mocking it up. Pretty sweet setup! I like it a lot and look forward to buttoning this up and getting it on the road.

    Thank you, again CVF Racing!

    IMG_0370.JPG IMG_0109.JPG So I thought I would add another pic or two for those that are considering Speedhut gauges. I took advantage of the Labor Day sale and bought the four 2-1/16" gauges for my bezel. My main reason for doing them now was so I didn't need to redo any wiring later. I still have the AAW harness going in and this way I can get th dash done the first time, hopefully.

    I have attached the pic with the VDO gauges and Speedhut 4" dual speedo/tach and a pic with all Speedhut gauges. I really like how they look and can't wait to get this thing running!
