View Full Version : How would I make a shroud for this?
05-14-06, 03:56 PM
In the interest of being cheap I thought I'd purchase a heater core as opposed to a radiador. I thought this (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Heater-Core-1980-86-Bronco-F-150-250-350-Pickup_W0QQitemZ8064230909QQcategoryZ33548QQrdZ1QQ cmdZViewItem) would make a good heater core. It has 1/2" tube fittings and the dimensions aren't gigantic. The only question is how would I make a shroud for it?

forget it, I measured it and just buying a radiador would make more sense
you can use a 77 bonneville heater core w/o ac and it fits 2 120mm fans very nicely. You can use some cheap plastic containers from target to make a shroud

Yeah....tupperware=fan shroud. That's what I got. It fits a 120mm fan like it was made for it.

ducttape + cardboard + few mins = insta-shroud :D

Friend with acess to a lazer cutter + metal press = nice aluminum dual shroud that matches my Lian-Li. :D
I'll post some pics if I can locate some batteries for the digicam.....

man, if I had know, I would have taken pics.I just constructed a shroud for a bonne HC, and I've already painted 1 coat.Bottom line is, you dont need to see my pics....buy a shroud or use the Tupperware suggesting.It was so much trouble making my shroud(especially when I had no flux).

Balsa or Poplar does a good job. Also Foam-core board does wonders.

Also Foam-core board does wonders. ... black painted and blue masking tape for the corners ... :)

I used a cut out of the fan size, set it on a roll of duct tape, wraped it with aluminum foil and used Fiber Glass repair kit (http://www.midwayautosupply.com/detailedproductdescription.asp?1284) to make the shroud.......
Got the kit at Wallys Mart, for like 10-11 bucks
Not really pretty, but effective.......:) :)
