I'll be putting on the new fenders I just picked up from the dealer at lunch today. I've got some degreasing to do before my baby goes for paint. That'll happen sometime in Feb I hope.
RE the radiator. I've been running a stock 4kq radiator and a RS2/S2 fan shroud coupled with a 500W RS2 fan. I've been running my WX powered 4kq for a couple of years now with this setup and I'm amazed at how well it works. I beat the tar out of it in the middle of summer at Mid-O this year with heat problems. BTW, my 4k runs a big turbo (K26/K27), cams, Ned R. ECU, no cats, etc. so it's really making a lot of heat.
The "RS2" fan is the same as a late 100 or 200 fan. I picked up a few spares from the junkyard. The RS2 fan shroud is a valid US part number too. I don't know if any are still stateside but they are available via the dealer.
