I believe some of the early cars used a cooling system configuration like this....

Maybe someone with more experience will chime in.

It seems like it should work.

I see you are doing a great job on the body work.
Maybe it's an idee to go for a taller license plate space?

Like the Pantera SI,
The GT5-S is a little smaller and dont fit the EU license plate proper.

HI Simon
In Finland you can get mini license plates they fit precise ! They have smaller letters and without EU mark at the end, But only if the normal don't fit !

I have a spare rear end from doors back its a GT5 with the big license opening, So i have thought about it but it is better with the small because they come in pairs so it looks better in the front with small license plate
Yes also in The Netherlands we have small license plates , yellow on the modern cars and blue on the classic cars.
Only alowed when there is no space for the big plates.
And squere plates.
Awesome work. I am very impressed with your skills and vision. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Keep up the great work!

Devin

It doesnt. But it can be.

How about McLaren atomic orange or mercedes ingot silver or ford ink blue
I have to agree with Bosswrench (red) and black would be my second choice but if you want something wild ... Lamborghini Verde Mantis (green) or Porsche Voodoo Blue.

Red every friend here says it should be, So that color is out of question Smiler
I really don't like bright colors but i think it fits this type of car! So i am going for some bright .
The orange and blue is nice. Green also but better on modern style car.
Silver is to hard to repair if needed and every Toyota here around is silver
its hard to decide i have to spray some test pieces!

Well I'll chime in..

Personally I don't think the Lamborghini green/orange bright colors suit the 5S body style. I much prefer something on the darker side from deep red to maroon, french blue to dark blue etc.

But that's just me and there should be enough examples on the web you can get a good idea of what works for you.
Hi Kim.

Suzuki Dark Blue Metalic, I dont remember the code/name. But it is a Dark blue with grow metalic picment and Pearl picment i think it is 2016/2017 color.
And the a stribe in antrazit not shiny, mabye around 50% shiny.

WOW...what an ideal!

did you consider embedding in a DU bearing for the bolt sleeve to slide in?
The DU bearing would be great! I had not thought about that.
But this is good enough for now, With smooth stainless sleeves it do the job.
