Front radiator pan

Post by Rudy van Daalen Wetters » Sun Apr 26, 2009 10:15 am

Tom,

You noted a pan that covers the radiator. What piece is this?
My car must be the Superleggera version...

Thanks,

Tom,

I never even knew that existed! Thanks for the photo.

Hi Guys,

As I'm sure you've noticed, I split this thread from Zac's original thread since we're talking about the radiator pan.

Michael Greenspan needed one for his car, and had his fabricators make a fiberglass buck to copy my original one. His copy turned out nicer than the Ferrari one (no hammer marks from Italian Craftsman)!

I still need to have his fabricator make another one for 3553, but if anyone else needs one for their car, I can do a group order.

Tom,

This little pan is no doubt for a 2+2? It sure doesn't look anything like the one for the GTC. I have a new fiberglass one on hand for 09605GT, which I will install one of these days.

Clem.

Tom,

I am in for a pan if you decide to do a group order.

I may also be in the market for one as well....mine is the orig one and is a little bent - so i would be interested in seeing how the fiberglass ones look.

I believe only the buck is fiberglas, the pan being
aluminum as original, Tom?

Yeah, The buck is fiberglass. The pans are aluminum, and will only fit the GTEs. Sorry Ed!

Great photos, thanks Zac. I am sure this pan gets
destroyed quite easily. I never even knew it existed.

It's been my experience that these pans cause the oil temp to run hotter, as it diverts airflow around the sump. That's not necessarily a bad thing, just an observation.

I certainly don't recognize that. Well, add me to the list if you make some.

Oil temp seems to take forever to register.
