Thanks

Next up is fitting the radiator, I made up a new top plate for the rad to look more like the originals.
Once it's painted black it should look nice.

look how low the holes are for the heat shield over the brakes, mine on my CSX are an inch higher and the heat shield hits the pipes... This confirms the person who installed mine was drunk... add to the list of assembly issues with the CSX

Next up, fitting wiring components to the firewall etc.
Voltage regulator on passenger foot box, (think I will paint that blue cover black)
fresh air valve to the foot box installed, wiper motor mounted.
Time to make up and fit the dash then roll out some wire!

Craig,


Looks nice. Yes, they are heavy. I recall struggling with mine during the install, a lot of weight and a tight space to fit it in.

I haven't finished hooking the steering up yet or gone over any bumps so not aware of the bump steer yet.

Seriously but, if you have any setup suggestions, settings or measurements etc I am all ears.

Thanks for any help.
Cheers.

Cheers,
Glen
