Check back for updates!
RnD Fabrication Prototyping New Scout II Super-Size Radiator, Part II
We are almost complete with our Taller Scout II Radiator. We made the prototype and did an initial test fitting, and found that we had more room available with a few small changes. Our tallest cores just came in, and we're now working on the final version which we hope to have ready to test fit sometime next week. Check back for updates!
RnD Fabrication Prototyping Chevrolet C10 Radiators for the 1973-1987 Models (up to 1991 on RV trucks)!

We hope to have the first demo units installed in the next month or two, along with pictures. These will also be available for LS swaps! Keep checking back for more updates!
RnD Fabrication Prototyping New Scout II Super-Size Radiator
RnD Fabrication is now developing a super-size version of our Scout II Crossflow Radiators for heavy-duty applications. We will have these available sometime next month after we finish test-fitting. These radiators will also offer larger electric fans for improved cooling.
RnD Fabrication Featured in Bronco Driver Magazine!
RnD Fabrication is featured in the upcoming issue of Bronco Driver Magazine. They ran a small feature covering our Full Size Bronco Radiator (1978-1979). We hope to start working on an early Bronco Radiator after the new year.
RnD Fabrication Test-Fits Prototype Chevrolet Inline-6 Valve Cover and Side Plate!
Earlier today, we test-fit our almost-finished Valve Cover and Custom Side Plate for the Chevrolet Inline-6 engines! These will fit a variety of straight six motors, including the incredibly popular 235 cubic inch motors. We should have these available for sale within the next 2 weeks!
RnD Fabrication begins prototyping Early Ford Bronco Radiators!
RnD Fabrication is currently starting our prototyping process for our next line of radiators serving the Early Bronco's. These will be a bolt-in unit and will cool stock to built motors. Check back for updates!
RnD Fabrication finishes 1967-1979 full-size Ford Truck Radiators!
RnD Fabrication is pleased to announce our line of full-size Ford Aluminum Down-flow Radiators for the 1973-1979 pickup trucks! We have test-fit this radiator in the 67-72 F100's as well as the 73-79 F100's and F150's. We have compared them to the full-size Bronco's and they appear to match as well (we have one more test-fit on a Bronco before we give the green light). We should have these ready and available on the website shortly.
RnD Fabrication begins prototyping the Chevrolet 235 CID Valve Covers and Side Plates!
RnD Fabrication is currently prototyping an Aluminum Fabricated Valve Cover and Side Plate for all you 235 cid owners out there!

RnD Fabrication introduces larger core for Scout 800 Radiators!
RnD Fabrication is proud to now offer the Scout 800 Radiator with a larger Core! We have just incorporated a larger core for our Scout 800 series of radiators. We are going to test fit these in a customer's vehicle shortly and report back. This should help cool even the larger motors in the 800's.
RnD Fabrication is finished prototyping for the 1964 GTO Crossflow and Downflow Radiators!
RnD Fabrication is finished prototyping our 1964 GTO Crossflow Radiator! These have been test fit and are ready to go! We are offering two styles, one is a down flow and the other is a Crossflow. The Crossflow has a smaller size and works great for stock or slightly built applications. The Downflow is considerably larger and will cool the biggest of motors! Both of these radiators will fit in your stock compartment, but the Crossflow style will require you to fabricate an upper and lower mount. We will add these to the website shortly.
RnD Fabrication is almost done prototyping our 1964 GTO Crossflow Radiator!
RnD has been working over the last few weeks on a prototype radiator for the early GTO's and other A-Body cars. We are putting the finishing touches on it now, and should have it sent out to our test-fitter hopefully early next week. Once we receive feedback, we're going to work quickly to get this radiator into the production phase!
