As I mentioned in an an earlier post, 80s rarely overheat unless there's a fault - Rob backs this up with his comment the truck is overcooled and hence the need to prevent cold air coming through the front. I've also got an aux air cooler for my a/t mounted just in front of the rad as my car (and me) traditionally go to hot places - I spent my first 20 years in east africa so tend to head south when at the wheel.Crispin said:Why would you want to blank the rad?
