    While we still had some nice weather on Friday before more snow came in; I spent a little time to hand polish the drag wheels on my '93.

    Looks great! I need to do the same to the draglites on my pace car. I also picked up another set of draglites in 5-lug. They're in dire need of a good cleaning and polishing. I plan on doing a 5-lug conversion to one or two cars this summer.

    I'm currently collecting the parts to swap the coupe to 5 lug Cobra brakes myself. I have about a 1/4 - 1/3 of the parts needed. Trying to save up a little to get the rear axles next.

    Are you already running electric fans? If so, why switch back?
    I prefer my electric fan; not only because of the HP it frees up, but the front of the engine looks cleaner.
    Do you plan to add a supercharger or turbo to the car in the future? If you do, then you'll probably will need the electric fan.

    I 2nd this. I will never run a clutch fan again. You have to upgrade you're alternator, of course. But then again, I'll never run the stock alternators in these cars again either! A 3g swap is easy and cheap. Plus, it eliminates a known fire hazard with the 2g set-up. The two upgrades go hand-in-hand imo.

    Here's a pic of my fan set-up. Not a great pic, I know, but it does show how much clearance I have with a 3-row aluminum radiator.
    It's a single fan which is designed for a Chevy HHR. I purchased a new aftermarket one from Rock Auto for around $60 shipped, iirc. It fits perfectly and mounting was really simple. I cut down some aluminum angle stock and drilled holes in the upper and lower plastic fan housing. On the other side of the aluminum angle stock, I drilled holes and used self-tapping screws to attach to the upper and lower sections of the radiator. If you are wanting a dual fan, the Ford Contour fan works well. I would suggest running two separate fan switches... either through a temperature regulated fan switch or manual switches inside the car. If choosing the thermo fan switches, even if you use the same temperature setting, they won't kick on at exactly the same time. Two fans kicking on together will put a good load on even the 130a alternator. Plenty of power to run them, but they pull some amps on start-up.
