fitting the spare wheel in its "propper" place also helps to worsen the cooling...... Duttons were well known for over heating in the day.

bear in mind that your placment of the radiator will almost certainly end up with the car overheating especially in traffic.

you could permanently wire up a large fan to blow air through.... or just move the rad to the nose cone..... that will mean that the spare will no longer fit.. but then very few of us have spares, just tyre weld.

where ever you fit the rad you will benifit from ducting it to force the air that comes through the grille to only escape through the rad core.

Judging by the progress on the Malaga you've still got 99 pairs of them left James!

Just kidding

I am pretty bad about taking precautions with stuff on my skin - paint stripper, petrol etc but I always use latex gloves when I do fibreglass, I've learnt that the hard way. I bought a box of the gloves from Halfords - 100 pairs for about a fiver.

andrew good tip for getting fiberglass splinters out of your skin, and it works . smooth gaffa tape over the area press down for a min. then slowly peel it off . ta dar no more itching lol

As you can see from the photo, I'm still looking for an original Dutton spare to complete the front end crash protection system.

Dave,

Thanks for the info. I use the term B Type as a general description. The main thing is to get it back on the road so that people can see it in the flesh and discuss its origins over a pint. Work continues at a pace, this weekend I've been repairing and modifying the fiberglass panels, what an itchy, dirty job.

that rear end and chassis looks like a B+ not B type.....

but it all looks a tidy job
