Damn dude, what is that gauge for that you need one that goes to 120 psi?
Actually I don’t think mine go that high. I just looked up the brand to get the picture so when looking at the model it corresponds as a reference. I just wanted to buy water proof gauges.

So this is how today has gone for me. I cut off the rear head bar because it was actually not the way I wanted it in the beginning but my inner child wanted to see progress when I got to that part and I put it in anyway. It was supposed to stick out in the rear a lot more than it was and I decided to see if it would grow on me. It did not. So I added the new bar and then got frustrated because I let my arrogance get the better of me and did t take my time to get my notch just right. So I moved to getting the radiator mount built and installed. I let Ashley weld that up for me while I was doing other things. Then I was by myself so holding the radiator, the bracket and trying to weld it in got me even more frustrated but I got it tacked in. I’ve gone multiple ways on how layed over I should have this radiator and I think I’ve settled on this. Stepping back I like the look, I’ll see how I feel about it tomorrow and either fix the notch and weld it in or remake it.

I regretted no spending more time in CAD on mine. Many hours of trial and errors (and costly too) could have been avoided if I spent time locking everything in 3D before.

Chris, I'm eager to see what's coming, you have some skills for sure.
Thank you, I'm not sure how I missed this.

Is it a cap? looks different than the normal caps people use i guess. the little dimples threw me off.
OH! Yes those are caps. I hand machined those but here is what they look like done on the CNC.

I just wanted something different. I wasn’t sure how it would even look until I made them. When I drew them in Solidworks they looked cool but things sometimes look different once made.

Well I worked on getting my aluminum overflow tank finished up. I haven’t had much time for anything else honestly. Made everything in house.
