Received the replacement radiator from Gery Bergbower which fits perfectly. Somehow Fed Ex managed to put a slight dent in the top tank which pulled the tank from the top casting that holds the rod, but the rivets held ok and looks like a little JB Weld should fill it fine.
Have yet to start it with the radiator installed. Once I do some running-in tests to make sure the bands are working ok (had some fitting issues with the bands) I'll install the body.
This last weekend I hot riveted the running board brackets. Lots of fun. I'm so close to getting this on the road I can taste it.
Take a video and share it here.
I had to look again to see the body on the lawn!
Anxious for the long term report!
