Midtec Spyder - cooling pipes

Hi all, one for the Midtec crowd here...if there are enough of us to be a crowd. I''m trying to figure out how to route the cooling pipes past the front suspension. Can't find a perfect route. Under the car seems too risky; through the suspension looks like there's not enough space and over the top just feels wrong and will be a high spot. What has anyone else done? Pictures much appreciated. Cheers and keep well.

Hi there,

Building on new chassis?

I have 3 midtecs and they are al different on cooling plumbing.
On my T70 converted Midtec I routed one on top of the footwel section of chassis (thermostat is always highest point) and one between the shock and lower wishbone. This is with strait pieces of 38mm alu tube (Thicker for v8 engine) and a few 45 degr silicon hoses. Connected to custom alu rad with in/outlet on same side. Downside it holds 12 liter fluid with 2.0 renault engine, but never overheats.

On the other Midtecs ( pinto and dohc ford engine) the pipes are both between wishbones on rh side, kopper 35mm.

Gr Marc
