Thread Necro... Any progress on this car. I loved the build thread so far, and have actually read through it twice. We need some more pics and updates.

Did you have to run a notched radiator with the 500 series power steering box. I was gonna get that one but it says you might have to. Thanks josh

Not to thread hijack. I run a aluminum rad in my Biscayne with a aftermarket box. I ground the rib off the front of the box to make room so it didn't hit the rad. There's maybe a 1/4 inch of room between the box and the rad.Not sure how thin the box is where it was ground off, but it doesn't leak and that's all that mattered at the time.
