01-29-2017 01:31 PM New carpet cont.
I didn’t want to fray my carpet when I screwed plates to the floor. I bought an electric soldering iron and found that the tip was .250 inches in diameter. I took a .250 bolt and turned a point on it to use as a replacement tip. As I found the nutserts under the carpet I then melted a hole where the screw would

My old carpet was looking very worn so I got a piece of eBay. To keep it from fraying I used a soldering gun to cut the holes in the carpet. I got a cutting tip for my gun and it worked great.

In an effort to get max air through the radiator I added an air dam to the inside of the grill.

When I went to mount them to the radiator I found that the round bar was up against the fins. I welded some spacers where I was to mount them. With a piece of weather strip around the circle sealed the fan to the radiator.

I dug out my tube roller that I made a while back. I was wondering if it would handle .373 round bar it worked. So I rolled a couple of 12 inch rings. I then took a scrap piece of flake board and some scrap furring strips then screwed them to form a pattern for the mount. After welding it I added tabs flush to the backside to mount the fan. This allowed room for air to flow.
