    Core support cover

    While our flip up headlight doors are iconic and cool, the view under the hood leaves a lot to be desired. With plans to add a Vintage air system next year, I wanted to clean up the latch/support area while creating an airflow path directly through the radiator and eventual A/C condenser.

    Obviously its far from finished, I still need to add the rear drop down to conceal the Volvo fan controller, etc. I'll be mounting the Taurus fan directly to it as well so I can get it off the radiator core and slide the fan up a bit to clear the water pump better.

    Great minds man... great minds.

    I plan on rolling a ridge in the top piece (where the sharpie line is) and leaving the 2 large lower surfaces flat for magnetic part/tool trays and water run off.
