I fixed the link but their eBay price is lower than their LEC price?

Call them. They have always given LEC a good deal.

yes window seals are now required as we chopped the old ones off to spray all the way up to avoid paint edge ... thinking of using the Honda ones .

The problem with that is there isn't many early 2000 Honda civic EM's about :banghead:
We need an alternative Jamie :poke: :lol:

Hello All,

It is Steve from Coolex (AKA eBay radiator_specialist and Nottingham Radiators) Hope you are all well. I have had a couple of requests to fit our turbo fans to the radiator but need to know the position of the radiator / cradle for the non federal, rest of the world model. Does anyone have a cradle knocking around??? I would be able to check the measurements and refurb it for the kind member as a thank you. If I read it correctly the existing fan mountings should come off leaving the main bracket OK to take the tow hook and "Y" brackets. To answer the question, we do still do the all aluminium radiator and header tank, the intercooler and the oil cooler, for the M100 but they are a very unpopular low volume item for the members and non members. We are looking to be able to supply a slim all plastic turbo fan mounted onto the radiator free of the support bracket.

Steve 8) :D

Had an update on my car this morning .
Its not too far off now .

They had a bit of a mare with the wiring and one of the guys who works in the garage had a friend who worked on the M100 in the production line .
He popped down to help out with my car for a bit . He also sent some pictures of the production line to Ben at the garage ..

WHAAAAT .

Need to know more .


Was more a call for how much do you want us to put it back together as we can bring it down to you on a low loader as we are picking up a car from down this way.

Answer ,

Leave out carpets as need to put single cell down , door top rubber seals i will do . Then its interior clean up .


I quite like the idea of it being brought down on a trailer as i didn't really want road salt to get on the car .
However i quite like the idea of it being driven a bit , so to iron out any potential problems .

Glad to hear it’s on the way back to you. I must say it looked pretty well sorted when I saw it on Saturday, but the devil is always in the detail. Good luck with finally getting it together and back on the road.
