    Re routed my trans cooler lines so that it falls after the radiator to get the temps down a touch more on hot days and when I’m off-road. Interested to see how much of a difference that it will make. I’d imagine quite a bit.

    I'm pretty amazed how high your temps were getting. I have a cooler and it sit around 150 most the time now. I don't think it's gone over 200 ever since I added a cooler.

    Amateur hour camper build, just need to get the canvas done. There are a few more pictures in my build thread and I'll probably add more as it comes along.

    Ah ok, hard to tell from the photo but looked like mig welds - not very common for aluminum. Nice work!

    I scrubbed the surface rust off my exhaust and muffler a year ago with phosphoric acid and here's how it looks now. There's some natural discoloration from the heat but otherwise the stainless properties were preserved by using the correct type of acid. I never did bother to use the VHT clear coat I had planned. This is just bare metal.
