Thanks! No appliance parts used !
I made the "ring" from a 1" strip of steel, welded on the underside to the main body, later trimmed it down to about 5/8" wide.

Mounted a pusher fan in front - I put it up high because that is the hottest part of the rad and the engine fan is mounted low... also 'cause it just fit in best above the brace just visible behind the bottom of the fan . I'm not a big fan (pun not intended) of electric fans but the owner wanted it so whaddaya do??

What amazes me is that these fans still come with zip ties to mount through the core, and people will mount them like that, asking for damage to the fins...

I've been on a break for the last 4 months refurbishing this motorhome, a 2000 National. Turns out it was a little more of a POS than I thought, but all is better now, updated and polished up the interior and fixed the cracked up fiberglas from minor fender benders. Took off all the 20 yr old decals and redid them with leftover paint I had around, re-painted the lower half with good 'ol Rustoleum. just waiting for new logo decals to come and it's all ready to roll, maybe tow the hotrod with us on the next trip to AZ.

I worked on a few motor homes back in my body shop days. Always needed a ladder.

Finally got back on the Packard today and tackled a job that I've been avoiding - rust repair on the rear window frame, pretty crispy with chunks missing.The shrinker/stretcher came in handy on this one, forming the new frame in 4 pieces, it went better than I'd expected. That's the last of the rust repair I think...
