Coanda Effect

After a very nice break in the New Forest with Mrs Blatter, my plan today was to get the Coanda panel which leads into the main flat panels. The theory behind it is that air from the lower half of the radiator is sent under the car, where (hopefully) the Coanda effect will result in that air being dragged through by the airflow under the car, which will in turn drag more air through the radiator - we'll see.

It was already shaped when I started, but needed brackets & lightening holes – sounds simple, but it still took all day. It still needs the chassis brackets riveted on (ran out of sealed rivets), the anchor nuts fitted, & a coat of paint.

But it's done - the car has the flat floor I've always wanted.
