72 K20 Texas Daily Driver

I picked up this 72 K20 back in Feburary, plan is to turn it into my DD. These types of threads have helped me in areas , so hopefully someone doing similar will learn from my mistakes along the way.

She's a bit tired and mistreated, but a good starter for me.

Re: 72 K20 Texas Daily Driver

Had some manditory work come up. Radiator blew out, fortunately i was just going to the mail box. and i had already bought a Griffin aluminium anticipating the blow. Since the old rad was a cobbled togrther piece, i decided to return to factory parts. The Griffin did Not fit well. it is too tall. after the fact i was told there are two sizes for the 72 K20s, Griffin only makes one. temp soloution was a couple oversized nuts for spacers. Still have a hard time believing there is two different hheight rads and only one size bracket avaliable. oh well , i delt with it.

The old rims look like nice 16x10" weld wheels
