    Nice. So is that scanned in 3d, or did you measure and draft it?

      Measured and drafted it..

      Wish I had a scanner for some projects.

      My micrometer has been getting a workout since I started 3D printing. Kinda fun to get back to designing stuff again..

                M30 + E30 = NFG about traffic.

                So glad the weather held out enough that I could run the Alpina over to NW to get some clean fuel.

                Can't wait to get it's legs stretched this weekend.

                        Yeah and 2 years later they spring a leak.

                        I was considering having mine repaired. My friend came down to my work tonight and put a newish stock radiator in my car for me while I was working. During the drive home I noticed my car is running at the proper temp(warmer), so I think I'm just going to stick with the stock one. The stock cooling systems are pretty damn good.

                              Ive ran them on the race car.

                              Brass is nice because you know you can get repaired or braze it yourself in a pinch. Not to mention, I have had cars 20-30 years old with the OG brass radiator still usable. The Aluminum ones just don't seem to hold up as well (mostly because of the coolant and corrosion.)

                              I'd still prefer to run either over a Plastic tanked radiator. I've never had a Plastic radiator that doesn't crack or leak at some point.


                              BTW, the Original Alpina M30/E30 ones are all brass..

                                Anyone in need of a few bottlecaps for snows or rallying or whatever? I have a surplus set of four - two have flat spots but are academically round. All have valves. Can PM pics.
