I bought two steel flat bars (3/16" X 1 1/2" X 36") and measured the front of the radiator core (from where the lip rises on both sides) and cut the flat bars down to 29 1/4".


I centered the cooler on top of the 2 bars and used the holes on the aluminum supports on the cooler to insert 4 #10 machine screws (3" long with lock washers), carefully pushing around the fins of the cooler. The holes were 3 1/2" apart on both sides so I aligned the bars to the holes and drilled them out.


I assembled the bars and used them as a template to drill the holes on the core support.


After I fit up the pieces, I took it all apart and painted the bars with POR-15.

There's never enough money to build it right, but there's always enough to build it twice!
