Made some custom brackets

I've never really liked the stock upper radiator hold down brackets. Especially if you are running a radiator that is thicker than stock. This setup is super sturdy now. I also made a lower support bracket for my Black Magic fan. The lower brackets they supply with the fan are about as cheap as it gets in my opinon. I think the bracket setup I made for the lower does a much better job of supporting the weight of the fan.

Wow! Nice! way to think outside the box. How did you get those bends going over the core support so tight? I'm stuck with using a bench vise and hand tools when bending tubing like that. Really a great idea.

I actually was looking at the harbour freight tigs last week, after hearing some good reviews on here about them. A buddy is trying to get me to look for a used miller or lincoln, but I'm not in a position to buy just yet.

Im sure you could find something used as long as you are ready with cash. I have Miller- Matic 180 works great.

Bent the first parts up with the tool. Not much to write home about but they look nice. Muffler hangers.

I saw your weight loss vids on Stick Mans YouTube channel. I posted about the heavy toploader and Lakewood. Very cool to know I've been reading your posts on here for a long time and now have videos to go with it. Love the radiator bracket idea, mind if I kinda steal it for mine?
