Rad. hose/line routing pix

I was wondering if someone who has done the conversion already would be willing to post or e-mail some pix (prefer a super beetle) of how the lines come off the engine (where they go form the eng. compartment and where they come in @ the hood) Also did you route the lines on the same side runing parallel to each other ? how are they secured to the pan ? Was thinking of making a scoop behind the "grille" of my Super ,aimed @ the front of the rad. with two electric fans (push type or pull ?) Good idea or bad ?

Thanx,
Rich -havik180@aol.com

Check the post below "Need Pics".

It has pictures of my super beatle conversion.

All the pipes were done at a muffler shop with 1 !/2"
pipe.

Exits the engine compartment upper left -above the ledge
in the engine compartment.Over the irs swing arm crosses
over just under the front tranny mount.

Then forward along the right side of the pan and comes
into the spare tire well below the tie rod and above the
strut arm.

Clear as mud right ?:roundnround:

Oops-didn't answer all your questions.

The pipes are attached to the pan by welding small tabs
to the pipes and the pan . One could also make up small
brackets to bolt too.

Up front I used a 3-row RX7 radiator with two junkyard
pusher fans. Modified my front lovers with a new panel
and made it into a open scoop type area .

Since I'm a cheap dude I'm using truck mud flap's cut
to shape to direct all the air into and out of the radiator.
Fastening them togeather with tywraps and a couple of
bolts.

Easy to shape and really doesn't look too bad.
