A couple more shots of the grill.  Got the headlight bars on this morning.  The reflection is awesome.

Now to finish up the work on the shroud.  The bottom was trimmed to clear the lower part of the fan.  Then in the third and fourth picture a flange was welded to the frame of the radiator and rivet nuts were added.  Then four button head cap screws per side can hold the shroud in place.

Here it is bolted to the radiator.  Then I drilled a hole and added the grille emblem for a 32 Chevy.  Then I cleaned it up and mounted it in the car.  I'll let you know how it works when I take it out in traffic.

Take that fan and toss it !  Those blades straighten out and are useless and create no air draw.

www.derale.com

has the correct fans either steel or steel with aluminum blades that will not bend, that will draw a cloth diaper from 9" away from radiator and hold it too the grill.

 If your fan will not draw the cloth from 9" away tooooo the grill at idle 700 rpm then scrap it.    They come in various lengths and are less than $50 from derale.

see if I can find a picture.

Saturday was really hot in the 90's so I decided to take the 33 out for a test.  The wife and I went for an ice cream in town and then I decided to "cruise" Elm St.  Back when I was younger, this is where we used to spend our weekends cruising.  Lots of traffic lights so a good test for the new shroud.  Hit almost every red light on the strip and the temp gauge never went over 195°.  Looks like the shroud did it's job :D

Good work, It's always fun to fix something.

 Way to go Tom! 5,000 fun miles. Bring it to Nevada now that you know it won't let you down.

Yep, No car progress here. Getting ready for winter again. Got a New (to me) tractor. Heck, I've got roadster parts that have been setting in the shop for years and haven't even met each other yet.  :o

5,000?! I DON'T HAVE 500!
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn
