Looks like we've found the same wire-wrap materials (Alex-Tech?). It is the "fabric" that wraps/expands around like a tube? Not cheap - but way better than the old plastic spiral wraps! Understand no melt until about 400F.

No mudflaps! A feature I love about the 68/69 cars. The half wrap is still a tape, although pulls off without residue. The manufacturer is Tessa... I primarily work on European cars day to day and this allows me to make my wire harness/electronics look more factory. Using it almost daily, it grew on me... I really like the properties and I think it just looks cool! Only suitable for interior use though...

Thanks! I really prefer C3ís with a 27Ē tall tire... I couldnít find anything (DOT) 345/35/18 I figure with vipers and corvettes running the 19Ē wheels I would have tire options for a while as well. Trying to build a double-duty car thatís still streetable and still trackable makes it a bad streetcar, and also a compromised race car. i think Iíll have a permanent smile on whenever Iím in the drivers seat though!

Some long term projects finally coming to reality! I think I started designing this radiator around January... C&R racing totally knocked it out of the park. Very easy to deal with, and helped with the design to make this as efficient as possible.

27.5" x 14.5", double pass 55mm core, extruded tube, type R fins. Sized to get it lower in the chassis and closer to the center of the car.

Still need to fab the mounts and hoses, but this is about where it sits
