I'm buying an 88 frame and was wondering what issues I will have stripping down my 87 and putting everything on the 88 frame? Any and all advice, knowledge, and help is appreciated as I have never done this. I'm worried about what all won't fit or matchup on this new frame. Thanks for any input you all can give everyone.

Lower radiator hose/outlet will be real close if not interfere with the frame also.

I bought an ebay one and had a local fabricator cut off the outlet and reweld it so it would clear the frame. cost me $30. Someone tried heating the one that was on my 88 and bending it(it was a 86 or 87 radiator)and it was all messed up. Also if you do get a ebay radiator check the holes in the radiator. the one I had when I took it to the fabricator and he cut the outlet off(to reweld it) the hole was only a small punch hole. He said the hole was only 25% of the size of the outlet pipe.

Heres a few pics.this was my old one someone tried heating and bending. Hose covered up the holes so I ran it like this for 10 years!! 0819131836a.jpg this is with no modification to the 86-87 ebay radiators image_zpsd82a1f59.jpg 0808131925a.jpg This is after I had it re-welded on. It could of stood being a little straighter but it worked. 0819131838.jpg
