Being a Cheapskate Limey,I decided to make a Guard for the oil cooler which is in extreme danger of being damaged by stone ejected from the front tyre.:eek:
I would imagine an oil cooler radiatior would cost a few bucks.:mad:

All I've done is get a sheet of that stuff pictured here,don't know what it's called so its "stuff",cost about £5.00.;)
And then had some silver screen trim around it.:cool:



All I did was offer it up to the area concerned,mark it out with a black marker pen and cut it to suit.:eek:
Then cut the trim to length and slid it on .Unfortunately I didn't have quite enough left to finish but you get the idea.:think:
I'll probably make a couple of lightwieght brackets which will be secured by the hugger bolts either side at the bottom.:abduct:

it's a radiator,, but there is a heat exchanger for the oil to water behind it..
but really,, if we want to be Techinical.. it's even an oil cooler would still be a 'radiator' .. just an Oil radiator. :)
