Installed the radiator today with a fabricated upper brace. Went to the parts store and got a handful of hoses that might work. All I had to do was bend up some 1 3/4" aluminized exhaust tubing to run from the water pump and under the engine to the radiator.
















This bed side will need to be louvered are punched. There are two electric fans yet to be installed along with the a/c condenser.

Installed two transmission coolers. One is a heatsink and the other is fan cooled. I plan to tow with it and the transbrake also creates a lot of heat when you launch with it.







Also got a lot done on the exhaust system.

Progress is looking good! love the build sofar. Are you going to install a side airscoop to allow direct airflow to the radiator?

Something like the Espace F1 station?

Thanks! I am trying to source some used factory vw bus engine vents. The engine compartment will also have a suction fan to draw the heat out.

The fans will blow air through the Radiators, or will the suck air through them?

They will suck air through. There is also a fan for the engine compartment itself, which will pull hot air out

Finished relocating the seat mounting points to maximize cabin leg room




Also making good progress on the dash mounted shifter.




I am utilizing the radio opening in the dash to mount the shifter and avoid any cutting, as the dash is the only really nice piece of sheet metal on the truck!
