Hi Chris, would you be able to tell me the size of the mesh needed to cover the larger rad opening in your nose cone please?

Got my header tank mounted high and central as possible, all shiny and new.



And finally got all the plumbing sorted, I've run the filler to the front hose to prevent any air locks and the pressure relief hose runs down with the speedo cable to under the gearbox. So if I ever do overheat no water will enter or go near the electrics which was an issue with the vw polo header tank.


I'm BACK!!! yeah it defo needs the coolant reroute. Overheats easily with high rev driving. glad I wrotee this down!

Good to see you back Chris - I've often wondered what happened to your car - and you. I had no issues at all with my Polo/Golf radiator and overheating. The fan only ever cut in idling in traffic. My 2nd rad had an 8mm outlet at the top of the radiator (polo) whereas the first one hadn't (golf). Both were the wider core ones.
Sadly the car is no more after aquaplanning in very heavy rain

Iíve topped up the oil and water and driven it to work and gym the last two days and itís been fine? 🤷*♂️ Car just been out on the back burner after I snapped the diff. Itís now got a 1.8 diff with and LSD fitted its changed the car quite a bit. Takes off like a stab rat now and just seem to want to get you down the road ASAP! Fast corners are faster etc. Gives confidence, open diff a bit of a fishtailer.

Sorry to hear about your car hope no one got hurt. Wet roads terrify me in this thing. 😬
