I cut out all the existing grill material behind it, there's just enough for it to attach to.

Put a pretty good dent in my to-do list; new hydroboost and mastercylinder installed, also installed a new power steering pump (old one worked fine but had a squeak when cold that was driving me crazy), also got the new high output alternator installed (test sheet pictured). I decided to order the factory style PS cooler that Art mentioned, after looking at it again I think it'll fit fine, should be here mid week. Knocked out an oil change and with having the radiator hoses off installed a new coolant filter and fresh coolant.
Still need to bleed the brakes (tech2 will do that), and bleed in the PS when I get the new cooler installed. Also need to install the new front shocks (went with the adjustable rancho 9000's since I'm still not completely sure on how much more dampening I need).

factory power steering cooler from the earlier models that Art mentioned is a bolt in part, I cut the return hose and added some AN fittings so that I have an easy way to drain/flush but that was just my preference. I'll just return the derale cooler I bought.

Got a chance to log a few miles on it this past weekend, the new fan control set up works really well and keeps the temp around 180 most of the time. I kicked on the override switch and it of course pulls it down even further. The new alternator holds the voltage rock solid at 14.9vdc even with all three fans on high, headlights on and ac on / blower on high so I think it will do the job.
