The Ford Lightning required several coolers, including the radiator, steering cooler, transmission cooler, and a supercharger heat exchanger. Adam fabricated a series of mounts and close out panels to stack all the coolers in the nose of the ‘69. He used a Mittler Brothers bead roller, box pan brake, and punch and flare set to add contours to the panels as well flared holes for strength.
Here, he uses an HTP Versa Spot welder to weld the pieces together.
