    thanks miles ,
    the fan was the one main concern I had left mate, but looks like its gonna work out just right ,
    I left a space between the fan and the heatsink as well to allow better airflow and so the fan don't get too hot,

    thanks dean ,
    and yeh the hammer cage is way stronger than a kraken or tcc mate, well its stiffer is what I mean, so will help protect the fan more

    today I finished the fan bracket off, ,
    lined the bracket uprights up and bolted em to the heatsink,
    then realigned the tto temp sensor rings so they will clear the fan once fitted,
    also cut a hole in the roof panel for an intake for the fan,
    put a carbon surround around it and bonded a piece of gauze in there , painted the gauze red while I was at it ,
    finally I bonded the fan into the top section of the bracket, used black rtv silicone cos it stays put, but can also get the fan out if I ever bust it by cutting the rtv with a knife ,
    fan needs leaving overnoight now so the rtv goes off , then can fit it,

    a few pics below, and as always,
    thanks for lookin ,

    weeeeell, the battery wouldn't fit on the chassis where I wanted it to, so made a battery box/mount doodad thinga ma bob ,
    mounted this at the rear of the cage so should be fine there I hope,
    lined the box with foamy stuff an all, so should cushion any shocks a tad ,
    not far off being a runner now, just a few small jobs left to do,
    few pics below,
    and as always, thanks for lookin
