Aluminium Radiator on a Bugeye

Morning, just wanted to give a little tip with regards to the above fitment. The core is generally bigger on this type of radiator - (lesson learnt from mine). When fitting its a great idea to consider the top radiator hose length, in that it may need trimming back to offset the bigger core - otherwise it will interfere with the front left fan (as facing the car) and make a grating noise. So best to consider before all fitted and coolant replenished. Hope this makes sense?!

Thanks all, Ben.

PS had the Rad, rear shocks fitted, full wheel lazer allignment done @ Carnetix - what more can be said - Superb as always.
