Monting the ac condenser to the radiator



All was going good tell this happened. I was drilling the bracket and by backing piece of aluminum slipped and i puched a hole through 2 of the cores. Sucks.
So i cut off the bad portion and welded up the core. So with the extra room there i will make a oil catch can in that space.
I had to cut up the rad support to make toom but it all fits tight now

Heres the cut up rad support

DIY work like this is what separates the men from the boys. In my experience if you can do stuff like this you can work on almost anything house/motorcycles/boats etc.

What are you using to weld the aluminum?

When I installed a T8D in a Geo Metro I just ran the whole engine harness/cluster/Ignition from the Kia and kept all the Geo stuff.

I didn't have to splice anything, but I'm sure you want something that works with factory gauges.
