    Now that the radiator lives under the seat, the hoses need to be pointed in the right direction.
    Top hose was easy. The thermostat housing used to point forwards



    But now, thanks to it's symmetrical bolt pattern it points in the right direction. Also in this pic you'll see the original short bottom hose which fits the housing perfectly and the angles on it miss everything and point the hose where it should be.



    With the help of a couple of turned joiners



    the hose now runs by the rear cylinder head, and up the rear subframe to the rad:





    Bottom hose uses a silicone bend and another joiner



    And a slightly more torturous route to the rad:



    It's less pretty than the top hose, but still better than having those ugly radiators hung on the side.

    You may have noticed on the seat unit I didn't weld up the sides:



    Here's the reason:



    The shape resembles number boards. They will have a grille epoxied to the inside (liberated from a waste-paper bin).



    With the seat unit in white, the grilles black and everything behind them blacked out I think it should look good, with the added bonus of letting heat/air out/in.
