This is awesome.

Also, want that rear bumper. Looks immense and completely compliments the car


Yeah, for me Toms rear is the way to go. Spats can look cool but they risk separating, cracking etc. Toms rear just lowers it enough and stil looks factory

Thanks for the photos Spidey.

Maybe if the two of you ordered the Toms rear bumper at the same time, you might get cheaper shipping. Worth a try.

I am going to try relocate the rad for colling - but this stage of the project is just the hood.

The Border Racing radiator relocation kit will be hard to find - if i don't get one, i will try make up something myself.

I look forward to you doing that because I was thinking about making a relocation kit myself.

Don't hold your breath - I've not been the fastest on doing some of my planned mods !

Having said that, i should be getting the car back tomorrow and will get onto research it. I think Scott Barton on IMOC had the kit and sold it on - so, might see if he had any actual pics, rather then the pics of the diagrams

Just dug this up from IMOC - seems that the Border kit is "just a Bodge kit with a posh name" ! And thats coming from someone who actually had the kit

It would be nice to get but after the thread above from IMOC, it seems like that you can do it with a few spacers and some hose. I'm going to investigate the DIY option first. Andf if its messy, i will raid the kids piggy banks

I hear you Spidey, we are not all as flush with cash as Quandry. €158 to him must be chicken feed.

I think I will make some aluminum brackets and get some silicone hose off Ebay, but it won't be done for a while.

Ask the guy who quoted you what is in the kit and/or photos of it installed, you might be able to get some help to do it yourself.

Is the efficiency of the rad changed once you tilt it?

It'll just mean that more cold air will be forced through it and so, better cooling.

I reckon i will have a go myself
