Had a few days off over the last month but still been plugging away slowly. Was having a nightmare on deciding on how the cooking would work. On these the fan is on the back of the dynamo in a housing. Due to the body drop the housing was hitting the body. I spent ages looking at running it open, different oil coolers, running squirrel fans etc. In the end I just cut it out, shaped the grill and stick it back in. It means I can run the engine with stock bits and the fan housing site in line with the back window so Is aesthetically pleasing.

Theyíre smaller ones which are normally used in drag racing. No idea why called a squirrel fan? They squirrel the air away maybe?

Starting to get the bulkhead finished. I made up a piece with a ridge so it could be spotted in to the existing bit. Then messed up cutting the existing bit so now itís just welded where it can be. Doh.

Itís amazing how rigid the car is now, considering you used to be able to push it and it wobbled like a jelly

Is the body still bolted to the floor pan or welded now?

Itís bolted so the plan is to split it next month and get all the welding on the body done. Itíll be easier without the floor pan etc in the way.

Then I can also work on the pan without a body in the way too. Might be fairly together by the end of the year maybe
