That's a large piece you've made there. Is that from a home printer or are you doing that at work? Watz ya got? I wanna see!

haha, its 3 pieces actually. The side are separate and i have a channel in it to fit the double din piece. Im planning on making it a modular design with replaceable panels.

I have a home printer thats a Tevo Nereus with a print size of 12.5x12.5.15

Been working to get the 73 drivable.

Test drove last weekend and had coolant blow out all over the engine bay with little to no sign of where from other then is being more concentrated on the pass side.

Well today I took it for another test drive with a new radiator cap. I also had to replace the O-Ring on the kick down linkage

1. I apparently tightened the kickdown/o-ring area too much. As the shifter is a struggle to put into gear.

2. SAME issue. After warming up it blows coolant all over and no real idea where from. It appears to be around the passenger side but it doesnt look like it's from the main hose. I'm getting to wonder if the radiator has a hole some where and considering trying some stop leak

3. Also when it gets warm it also starts having the oil light come on when idle so blah. This could also be due to the coolant possibly maybe getting on the sensor

You can't just observe with the engine running and see where the coolant is "blowing out" from? I am guessing you have a serious leak between the intake and the head on the passenger side. Don't just dump in something to cause clogging in the coolant system. Clean things up and then fire it up and find the leak.

Nope...I've tried...I see no leak but the concentration is on the radiator itself on the front passenger side and on the other radiator fine in front of it. The main tube doesnt look to be leaking and I verified the hose clamps are tight

Well now you are describing something very different that would seem to be a leaking radiator. Drain it, pull it and take it to be pressure tested. Not a fan of those "sealers". Do it the right way and you can be assured it was fixed properly and not leave you on the side of the road somewhere.

wells its all over the engine bay but i also have the hood scoops without the block off plates so alot of air is flowing under the hood so im sure that add to the confusion of where its coming from

Well I didnt go rent a pressure tester instead I just blew air into the radiator through the overflow. Instantly coolant started shooting out the passenger side of the radiator. It's by the hose but its not coming from the hose. Its sprays like a mist right out of the top row. Time to order a new radiator
