Got lucky since the Vette waterpump uses a different thermostat/housing than other LS waterpumps. Got a little tip for a stock replacement from an 02 Ford Windstar for under $20 vs the fancy $80 piece.

Finally got around to swapping tensioner pulleys to the one Drew suggested. You can see pretty obvious why he suggested the upgrade.

26x19 Speedway Motors radiator in and fits perfect. Hit up Drew about a grill/radiator hoop and rear halo, and he read my mind. Glad to see him bring this kit to the market and continuously make improvements for the garage builder.

Got back from Honduras and figured I needed to knock out the small list. Bled the brakes and added some window nets to keep me from being stupid. Picked up a used Warn winch and the correct radiator will be in on Monday.

Watched the vid. Do you have a spool or lockers in the rear? I noticed in the vid when turning it looked like it was skipping around the corners. It could be the big tires too. Just curious. You should have went thru the golf course give the other residents something else to yap about.

Yes it's spooled with 4 wheel steer in rear wheel drive only. Still learning how to drive it as this was the first time the tires have touched the ground.
