looks like you figured out a good option for that upper radiator hose, too. everything fits nicely and looks so fresh!

youll want a turbo blanket once eventually the housing starts getting surface rusty...
Already planning on buying a turbo blanket from Mishimoto. It's actually in the cart already :P But going to wait... things to fix first. And someone else mentioned how the rad those takes it away from the heat / exhaust, which is cool.

Thanks folks! Finishing the bay actually made me want to fix other parts of the car that are ...... "showing it's age". example: those dam rust spots on the pillars of the back side windows/doors.

Discovered this yesterday......... haha. The shroud in the light came off on one side. So glue came unstuck... (I don't even remember how i secured these in there). Shitty part is the light will have to come out and be taken apart to fix this. And to take the light out the bumper has to come off. And that means the intercooler taken apart...... haha. Oh my.... I can see her just staying apart for the whole winter now.




Bonus Pic :P

Very nicely done. On the bay and pumpkins. What did you use for your lower radiator hose? I am thinking of converting that to steel braided. But then I might have to get a new radiator that has the 16an on it. Or go get it welded on.

Ya Grumpy. These 16AN fittings and hose are the real deal. Welded a 16AN bung on to the lower and upper rad (cut the old ones off), and on to the thermostat and block fitting. Only way to do it is to have a shop weld the ends on to these items. Real hose with real ends... measure 3 times and cut once. As you see with the upper hose, that was try #5 i think. A lot of money on a useless mod, but looks is what i was after. PS - don't try the braided hose that pulls over your current hose, they suck.

Is that the Gatling gun shroud? I keep going back and forth on if I want to open mine back up and black house the reflectors or not. Looks good.
I don’t think I’ll convert the upper hose, but I do like the lower hose and I would do it the real deal like you did. I just hate opening up the coolant system. It’s always a mess and I hate the smell of coolant, almost as much as I hate the smell of power steering fluid.

It is the gatling gun mini's. I tried the 2" ones and they are simply too large, too much cutting involved to make them fit. And if you are going to do the lower hose you may as well do the upper :P But if you do, go with the black ends like most modern folk are doing

Haha, same. I've dealt with radiators enough times it's gotten to the point where I dread that smell more than just about any other in the world.
