Few things done here is clearance on oil pan.After cutting and welding frame and new mounts was still to close and used a flat washer between motor and mount.Some
pics of headers and eng. fitting.Anyone who says header needs hammered I would say never seen it because there is zero clearance with hedmen 68090 on 1 tube.Have 9 inches for starter to fit.Not the best welder but no leaks.Next will be rockers and valve cover to use wipers.

When you go to look for a lower radiator hose you can either use a long flexible generic radiator hose or two shorter hoses clamped to as short section of stainless exhaust pipe curved section, or you might find that the only reasonable option is to fabricate /weld some curved sections of appropriate size stainless exhaust pipe, and use short sections of rubber hose with clamps to route coolant











or fabricate something similar to that new exhaust header primary pipe after careful measurement and test fitting

Have made a test hose but have seen none close to it.
With all cars that have been built I would think
some wrote down what they used.Maybe good ideal to make a aluminum transfer pipe with hose on each end.Those bendable hose look good to.Seem to have a brain fart.

I like the bendable stainless hose.
Everyone has black radiator hoses.
Nice job on your accesory brackets.
Looking good. No Bridgeport verticle mill used.
You have a good eye and are handy with metal.
