    it is a 26x17, I ordered the wrong one. they would fit better on a 26x18. The brackets are just 1 1/2 x 1/16" aluminum with thread inserts.

    My (factory) FMJ 26” wide core radiators all are 18” high (core) – so I can see how could be a problem. I will pick up a used one and see how it will fit.

    okay, not the best picture. I added guide hooks to route the cable around the exhaust and transmission.

    I used the Jeep Grand Cherokee rear cables, and the intermediate cable for a 79 Magnum. The custom parts I made help reduce the extra length.

    just finished putting the interior in, so the movie to the new garage can be easier. The upholstery on my seats is complete shit, but the foam padding is still good and comfortable.
