76 Pinto over winter VI

Spring is close now and a few warm days got me really motivated, so I made the pieces for an overflow tank and Mike welded them up for me.

Needed a better cooling system so I added a larger (thicker) radiator, went to aluminum instead of copper/brass. I have to cut out the top cross radiator brace to fit the new radiator in and keep it away from the water pump, hence the fabbed brace. I found a gilmer drive for the 302 so I figured I would give it a try, can't hardly see it. It doesn't whine, or if it does the timing gear drive is much louder so I don't notice it.

Had to add some tunes, so like the 80's the speakers went across the back window. I did break era correct on the sub woofer and amp, but it sounds so much better with it.
