Re: Zig's 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 - PICTURE HEAVY

Haven't updated this in quite some time.

I was able to fabricate a shroud out of a piece of sheet metal using a bench vice, c clamps, a few boards and a jig saw. The hardest part was coming up with a way to cut the circle, ended up just bolting the piece to my bench and bolting the jig on the bench at the correct radius and just spinning it around.

I'm pretty happy with it, only cost $20 or so for the metal and bolts. I've had the radiator on for a few months now and it was the best choice I've made, on the highway when it's 95* outside it just bounces from 190* to 180* with a 180* thermostat.

Pictures below.
