Beetwenty's B10 2 door

Quick update.
I have made a water pump block off plate as i am considering using a Davies craig electric water pump and controller.
I traced a water pump gasket onto some 6mm aluminum plate.

Cut and filed to shape.

Then i used washers to mask my bolt surfaces and sanded the exposed edges to a radiused transition.

Completed shape.

I then ran a needle scaler over the front plate in an effort to fake a cast aluminum texture.

While it is not 100% accurate for its fake casting texture
I am happy with the final part.

Ash on his legendary projects again, 
I like that you can use a temp control on the leccy pumps...
Yeah, a friend has one in his 1200.
They are the go.
Strangely I am not after it for the temp control.
Im chasing millimeters.
Wanting to try and see if i can squeeze a thermo fan between radiator and engine.

I ran a fan between rad and engine with std pump
A15 and thick rad... close though
I bought a wp blank plate off a guy on 1200.com
Heavy stainless... should last forever
I am jealous of you Neil.
I think my A12 must be further foward than your A15 or the supercheap auto fan that I tried was thicker than your Fan.
I wanted to use a single 10 inch and didnt have the space.
(But it was a super cheap auto fan, so probably not the thinnest fan ever made)
I also wanted to buy a water cut plate from ebay or somewhere similar, but came up empty handed.
So had no option other than to sort out my own plate.
A stainless one will definatley last for ever.

Post man delivered a new apron panel today.
Was listed as an unknown part.
Sent it off for blasting and etch priming already.
...chasing this panel came about as im looking to make a removable apron panel to gain access to the front side of my radiator panel.
My car must have had a front end crash at some point in its life as both guards are welded to the apron panel on my car and it looks as if it has been mig welded to the radiator support where there should be spot welds instead.
Im not sure how easily my current panel will come off.
If it comes off easy ill have a spare, yay for me.
But im thinking the reality is its going to fall into the not so easy category... so spare panel it is.
Please dont hate me if my current one doesn't survive.

I cut the nose off a 2 dr sedan yrs ago for someone... who never came thru.... still wrapped up in the shed I think
Good spare to have.
I just paid $150 plus $25 post for mine.
Not sure what blasting/primer will owe.
But could likley be a $300 panel that still needs painting.
