UPDATE

Spent some time today figuring out logistics - how do I securly mount these coolers, while isolating them from vibration and clearing the the rear fascia?

Let's have a go...

Started by making up 2 template brackets. These will not be the final brackets


Then looked at the rear hatch lock mechanism brackets - can I mount my brackets to these?


No, I will have to find another way


Clearance is close from the top of the cooler and the fiberglass rear tub




Clearance looks great between the rear fascia and the cooler and hoses


Tried the tail lights as well. Clearance is good.

Steve,

It is so sad to see pics of Grond looking like a cannibalized, thrown away, ignored waif

Originally I was sure that Grond would be carefully, and quickly, put into working order following CI VII.

However, following your relocation to Florida it appears Grond is regulated to the "back burner" of your priorities

If there were an SPCA for Vettes, I would report you

BTW - is Grond attending CI VIII?

With the fans enclosed in the rear fascia , will they make much noise? Is there much air flow to that area of the car? Will you need any scoops or vents?
This is a very cool mod, keep the pictures coming.
