Best chrissy present I could want!-yup the ol' gals about done!
Got the rad plumbed in,filler sorted in top hose,fan switch in the bottom jobby I got bent up and fan wired in.
Even managed to get the hydraulics done on the clutch,after Goodrich supplied the wrong end!:rolleyes:
Power steering is now sorted after trying 2 s/h pumps!!-I finally bought a new one,fitted it and it works!-although I'm looking to put a cooler on-just in case!;)
It looks a bit like this...........

After much ado with the instuments.............I have now decided to go completely aftermarket and make up a dash,with the desired guages-bit like this one.....

Fair play m8 !!

Looks the part :cool:

Is that the otter switch I see in the bottom hose?

Just out of interest why wouldn’t you run it in the top hose?

Yup!-it's the bottom hose as the water leaves the rad-if it was in the top it would get hot straight away as the 'stat opened-and probably kick the fan in
to cool a cold rad!:) many modern cars have em' in the rad itself-this is the nearest to it!

Mate, you've done a fantastic job! Nothing beats the satisfaction of getting up close and personal with it. Looks like 2006 is going to be a bit of an exciting year for UK Hybrid Z32's! :D
