For the cooling system, we called Year One Next Generation and ordered a Be Cool 95 Camaro LT1 replacement radiator. The 30x19-inch aluminum unit fit snugly, only requiring a slight modification to the Malibus lower radiator support. A metal tab interfered with the Be Cool drain plug, but a quick tap with a 5-pound hammer corrected the problem. To hold the radiator in place, we built custom radiator straps from 1/8x1-inch aluminum strips. As for the hoses, we capped off the heater hoses temporarily and used a set of inlet and outlet hoses for a 95 Camaro. The passenger side was fine, while the driver side required cutting 4 inches off the portion that mounts onto the thermostat housing.
