Mr. Blacmore inspects progress on Nomad

Mr. Blackmore stopped by with his friend Tom Hageman one day to check with Randy and observe the progress on his wagon.

Inspection of Nomad continues Randy points out modifications

Mattson radiator and fenders off of car.

Here is a good view of the back side of the radiator. The Mattson radiator comes with its own electric fans as one complete kit. We have also built custom covers into the inner fender wells. The one on the left covers the over-flow tank and its associated hardware, while the one on the right will conceal all the hoses and fittings for the AC and heater.

A top view of the radiator and our custom covers. One good thing about these Nomads and the rest of the Tri-Five's is that they had plenty of room under the hood. Today's automotive engineers would consider that space "wasted", but it gives us room to be creative.
