    I saw mention of some "flaps" that help direct air from the condenser to the radiator, mine does not have this, and I haven't found any decent pics online. Can anyone attest to this? Or take pics if they have them??

    I think I have an extra pair from my parts car in the garage I will try to find.

    Cooling issues? Do you have the plastic piece on the bottom of the core support?

    Just swapping the condenser, I bought the 97 cobra one, since my fins had all been bent over, over the years. And in the guys write up, I can find a link, he mentions swapping them over, just curious what they were or if I needed them.

    I'm pretty sure the plastic under the core is still there, will take a pic tonight.

    It’s just wavy. The pic makes it look like it’s cut up

    IIRC they mount with plastic tabs inside the core support.

    This is what it looks like to the sides of the condenser and radiator.

    The condenser had some flaps on it. Seems like it all seals up together nice. I’m not to worried about it. Should be fine. My apologies for questioning, lol, just didn't make sense in the other thread.....
