Thanks. It's a little over engineered :)

Now that I have painted and fitted the rad I can see there is a leak where the welding was done so I have to take it back out, get it rewelded and paint it again  >:( I will try and do a little pressure test with a foot pump first, just in case there are any more.

I finally got some wheels. 17" SSR/Desmond Koenig KG-JPN 3-piece split (not welded). One pair are 17x9s and the others are 17x8s so I am going to get some larger outer lips to make them 9.5 et22 (for the rears), I think they should fit OK.

After refitting my rad, I have noticed that it actually leaks more than it did before I got it fixed. Not impressed  >:(. There's little point going back to the guy that welded it so I will have to try and find someone else.

Made some progress with the under tray. Made a couple of brackets that I riveted to the bumper so that I can use rivnuts to secure the undertray.
