Here are some progress pics of my work to have something of value to take to Carlisle.  (1-2) my spoiler standoffs which had to be raised 3".  (3) my wheels widened 2.5" for the rear.  (4-5) my feeble attempt to recreate a GTR engine cover.  (6) the way that she looks today 5/20/14.  Jim

Eddie:  No offense taken.  The choice of the performance of cooling fans is up to the builder.  With a proper cooling system, most fans do not run during highway speeds.  Fans will run at slower traffic speeds/city driving when the cooling ability/heat transfer of the radiators has been reached at system limits.  The CFM of your cooling fans must be increased in a ratio to the thermo efficiency of your radiators, thus the need for higher volume fans.  Since I have just recently got my system operable, I will have to monitor the temps and possibly purchase the Spal fans as you have suggested should the need arise.  Thanks for for the valid point. ::thumbup  Jim

Rodrieguz:  Not a full GTR look but 85%.  I want it street legal.  No rear bumper, Straight wing, GTR console, plain interior, modified front grille area w/park lights, fuel ports, air jacks, and hood pins.

Adrian:  I intend to box in the upper quarter vent inlet to the LH radiator including the AT cooler.  Air will flow thru and around the cooler in route to the radiator.  I don't plan on any long trips but will monitor the temps.  Jim

Jim,
I hate that I had to miss out on the show, but I WILL be ready next year.

I noticed that you have your cooler upstream from the rad, if you dont mind me making an observation.  I would suggest moving it closer to the rad, otherwise you run the risk of it being rendered useless unless you seal the air box to it, then it becomes a great source of restriction in your airstream.

Great job there Jim,

Quick ? What seat model/manufacturer are those GTR style seats? 

Are you going for the full GTR look?

ps:  The aluminum spoiler must be primed with "self etching" primer prior to painting.  This helps the paint adhesion.  Total weight of the wing completed was around 12#  Jim

The radiators mounted sideways fit the rear openings better and give it the OEM look.  Thanks, Jim

and NO, I never want to make another wing unless.......!  Sadly, I wasted $72 worth of vinyl wrap thinking that I could put it on myself.  You will never know what you can or can't do until you at least try.

Now, regarding the 72" rear GTR spoiler...........This was my first fab of a rear spoiler and MY LAST!!! 

Wow great job on the wing, can you make me one???? ::tongue

Is there a special reason you mounted your radiators sideways?

Wow! Very impressive! You are truly an artist. Great job!
If I don't have time to do it right, when will I have time to do it over?

OK, the snow melted and I decided to get back on the build if I was going to make the Carlisle Show in May.   AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAggggggggggggggg!!!!!!  It is so amazing how fast time flies when you are in a hurry.  Let's see what is on my "to do" list. 
1) Install heater hoses and radiator hoses. 
2) Install power steering lines. 
3) Install trans cooler. 
4) Tidy up all wiring. 
5) Remove surface rust and paint. 
6) Install drivers seat. 
7) Install purge tank. 
8) Install upper front shock mount strut bar. 
9) Bleed brakes. 
10) Fab rear spoiler mount. 
11) Fab rear spoiler and cover with carbon fiber vinyl. 
12) Fab GTR console switch panel.   
There were other things also but these were priority items to make the chassis look good and needless to say, I was extremely low on energy by the 2nd week of May.
