Default A bit of progress

I finally finished mounting my radiator and making my fan shroud. Which allowed me to set the engine and trans back 1 1/8" to where it should be. I've been having to look at my mock up engine set too far forward for weeks and it was driving me nuts. I should have a 1 1/4" gap between a short water pump and the fan.

I'm also changing my trans crossmember. I'm running oval exhaust tubing under the body and it'll pass through the crossmember. I'll finish welding it up tomorrow.

Looks good! Did you ever check out those bulb seals from McMaster-Carr?

Those I got had 3/8" bulbs I believe. Look around in that link. There are different sizes that may fit what you need more.
