Realized yesterday that I'd never put my VIN tag back on the passenger side cowl. The coupe came with a brand new repro tag, so I got my stamp set out and using a block of wood to keep the numbers aligned I stamped the title numbers on it, and mounted it back in the original location.
Decided it was time to install the trans cooler. I don't like them in the radiator, so I use auxiliary coolers. I also don't like them blocking the radiator, so I mounted it horizontally under the passenger side floor. Made some standoffs to keep it about 1.5" off the floor, and then used the leftover 3/8 braided hose I had to feed it. Just used regular hose clamps since it's hidden and didn't need AN fittings. It just fit between the trans crossmember and the driveline loop crossmember!
Vall, would you please slow down! I can't even find time to get out to the shop and you are getting so much done on the coupe. Maybe it will be a better year for this old guy and I can catch up.

Hey Mike, Yes I'm slowing down. Winter has me spending less time out there. Had to bring my grille into the basement yesterday so I can skim coat it in a warmer environment! Good to see you back here!
be missing something here. Halogens give off massive heat, even the 12 volt type where as I have yet to run into an LED that can't be touched even after it's been on for any length of time. You're the retired electrician Vall, can you explain this one to me.

Isn't it the transformers that get hot with LEDs?
The heat sink is part of the current management system to help keep the high intensity LED's from becoming hot and losing Lumens..they lose a lot at very low temps...compared to other ir type lights...
