Default Custom Made Radiator Shroud

Used .032 gauge aluminum to make it, along with a metal break. Let me know what you think!

I'll be working on the fan cover next.

Looks good man. Did you paint it white or is it just the film that comes on aluminum sheets?

Thanks guys. I should mention I made my own because i didn't like how every other shroud i've seen doesn't cover up the radiator hose, they either notch out for it, or just completely leave it out.

I will be starting on the alternator cover as soon as it's not -6 here in NY, lol.

The bottle is just spare oil never know when you might need some. But thankfully for me my car does not burn any oil as of yet.

I used to always have a oil bottle cut in half with a rag stuffed in it hiding in the engine compartment some where. Convenient for topping off on the road.
But never a full one.
