    ^^ Good. That stuff will sell like hot cakes.
    Try and make all of it... lol. Body moldings (I'm in desperate need) and that belt trim that goes against the glass windows... (mine is dried up and starting to go).

    I am potentially in. I'm in eventual need of a new radiator and a direct fit would be great.
    Bad decisions make the BEST stories.

    My car was running hot at the track. I'm interested, but I'm concerned about the quality as it's coming from overseas. I'm assuming it's on par with Godspeed and other ebay brands.

    Im still dispointed in my G-Rad..... I still think I got the Pre Production Model one..... Im very Crossed about it sense I payed GOOD money for mine. I saw the Production model and it has the G Samp on top of the rad. And Mine did not.

    Why post something that has not one bit of relevance to Phils actual product offering?

    As for me, Phil, Ill put my name out there to be on the list. My Griffin rad took a leak 2 years ago, same as so many stories from what I hear. Id be up for one, possibly two for the 83 and 86.

    Piss test.

    So the Griffin's have been developing leaks have they? Not suprising since they use the stock mounts, which were designed for copper rads. Aluminum rads have to be electrically isolated from the body, or they will eventually rot out from electroylsis. Those of you with them, I would put some rubber spacers between the upper mounting ears and then enlargen the bolt holes on the rad and run a bolt setup with rubber isolators that insultates the bolts from the rad. Phil, might want to take this into consideration for the new ones. Maybe premade isolators and some delrin fastners or something to attach them?

    I doubt there is electrolysis issues with them. That would require a connection from aluminum to regular water to metal to occur. The rad won't rust from being bolted to the body. That is the same as the timing cover, it is bolted to the block. Plus if you use a coolant and distilled water, there should be no/little corrosion at all.

    Well it works very similar to electroylsis, I forgot the chemical term for it it. Its the law of dissimilar metals, which can cause galvanic corrosion to occur if you have 2 metals touching each other and an electrical connection between them (and of course the body is the ground path in a car). I won't pretend to be a chemist, someone much better at chemistry pointed this out to me once, but see here...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galvanic_corrosion

    Check out any vehicle that comes with an aluminum rad from the factory, and the rad will always be electrically isolated from the body with the stock mounting system.
