began working on adding a scoop to the belly pan.



after all of the fab work is done the scoop will be primed with 2K primer and the inner walls will be coated with this.



I will also be applying this to the insides of my dog house and to the cab floors of the van before carpet goes down.
I wanted to drive the van a little longer .Now that I have it up on stands I see some things that need attention before the road trip to Wisconsin.....

There is a certain stretch of road that that gave the "Beast" a black eye with a sucker punch...
Early Chevy Forced Air induction......
I think this and a couple of other minor tricks and it will be time for we to give her another shot at that stretch of road.......

after the beast has another go at it I will let you know all of the details.
Even as hot as she was running (230 degrees) the valves did not rattle and when we shut her down for fuel it did not puke out and internal fluids.Running regular gas.fired right up each time I shut the engine off...
Lets just say I had to run her easier than a really wanted to be running her......It was a 65-70 run.

here is a picture of the scoop hanging

The Dodge's have a similar issue sometimes.

Brian also adds a scoop to the belly pan and he'll cut a tunnel to the front of the doghouse.

Funny thing is though I had an A-108 with a slant six. I had the radiator recored by a local shop here in Elkridge. The fellow said that while they couldn't offer a 4 row core and still retain the top tank, he offered up a 2 row with capacity of a 4 row. That van never got hot and we didn't have to modify the belly pan or cut in a tunnel.
