    Engine parts with the checkered pattern on them

    Nar its ok. I thought it was more like the rocker cover. But its a different pattern. I just knew that somewhere in my head I had this image of it and I thought it was more like the rocker pattern. Thanks anyway. I think I'll just get a rocker cover and cut it up to use as my air box top. Thanks guys

    Here it is. I knew I had a photo of it somewhere. What is this thing?

    No. I just saw something else though. It was a small turbo piping which came off the throttlebody and had the checkered pattern, plus ford plus turbo on it. I bet its rare as hell though.
  5. Hey guys. I want to make an airbox for the corty, but would love to use the checkered pattern on it which is seen on the rocker cover, intake plenum, heatsheild etc. I thought I saw something once which was a triangle shape type thing and flat which had the pattern. I thought it might have been an airbox lid design or something, but I can't seem to find anything. Is there anything else that maybe the fairlanes or ltd's had which had this pattern that I could use to create an airbox lid?

    I couldn't look at the damn thing anymore, so I made up a new bracket. Much cleaner and simpler. The stupid things you do when you over think things. Alternator bracket next

    "On todays episode of Australian Cortina ...." I bought a set of EL Falcon thermofans and after much trimming and cutting of the shroud, along with some plastic welding of spare plastic to create a new shape on the sides, it now fits. Next up, alternator and electric water pump

    Is the cortina finished ..... haha no chance mate. Your best bet for all that info is to get onto a few of the aussie cortina facebook pages. Tons of barra conversions these days

    I bought some alloy bends, silicone hose bends and t-bolt clamps from Aeroflow to make the Intercooler Piping. Some careful measureing and cutting, some tig welding and here is the end result. Here is the video of it https://youtu.be/4IV5Vhu8TMo

    The cortina top mounts (standard) are like that also. They are welded to the top of the radiator and then claw over and get bolted down. I didn't want any mounts to be seen in that radiator support area at all so I went with the different route. Leo sadly is flat chat with school, even filming he was only able to help me for a small while. I will get him back in there soon though. He has a model car build of his own that he'll be doing soon.

    "On this episode of Australian Cortina ...." Bought a new alloy radiator, its a VR VS Commodore unit. Just removed the brackets and plates for the standard commodore thermos. Welded on some brackets to mount it up onto the end tanks. Also cut out the standard cortina radiator mounting area at the bottom towards the front apron lip and made a new one which sits the new radiator further down. Made some pedestal mounts for the radiator dowels and it works like a champ. Here is a video showing the whole process

    "On todays episode of Australian Cortina ..." Did some modifying of the Throttle Body. It had these 2 pipes coming out of it which were for vacuum signal and sucking engine fumes from the rocker cover to the throttle body. I deleted them and also needed to fatten up the inlet area as the silicone hose reducer was alittle loose for my liking. Plus the T-bolt clamp was wider than the standard lip area of the throttle body. I ended up buying a small peice of 2mm thick alloy tube, sliced it in half cause the diameter was too small. Added 2 small filler peices and welded it onto the throttle body. I added a bead of weld to the end of it so it stops the chances of the hose coming off under boost. Next up, cooler piping and mounting the radiator
