Re: radiator cardboard
-- [ From: human * EMC.Ver #2.5.02 ] --
yeah, I sprung about 150 U$ for side and bottom cardboards (yes, cardboard
for $150.00. but please don't send me pyramid scheme chain letters....) for
my coupe this winter when my radiator was out cause of blowing a heater core
hose. They look nice. They make it darn tough to adjust the alt belt
do they do anything? I dunno, how about keeping rocks away from your
radiator (I suppose a prefabbed, welded, hole sawed, piece of 1/4" machinist
cloth would be even better) wish I'd thought of that before!
I feel even dumber in a way, because I think the newer models are plastic
probably more durable than hygroscopic paper products, and I bet they woulda
Oh BTW I think they were called "air guides", now doesn't that shed some
light on their function? They act as a ram air scoop for the radiator. I
don't think I am qualified to use the phrase "ram air scoop" unless it
applies to a scale plastic model.... sorry.

Righto! I dont think my 4kq EVER had that bottom one. The top one however
is important, it will overheat without it.
