Radiator fan fun

Build011 1975 BMW 2002 Turbo M42 271

This car home would eventually be in Southern California. I hear it gets warm there and with a turboed M42 with AC we wanted to be able to cool it off correctly.

I like using parts from other OEMS as they were designed in a factory down town to be robust and stand up to the test of time.

In the case of this car I found that a mini cooper fan would fit the bill well.

Time to put together a mount and shroud for it.
