You may remember from our second 2016 Camaro radiator post that I mentioned we would be back in the next installment with 3D-printed prototypes. Things change, however, and I’m happy to say that we’ve made some quick progress on this radiator, so I’m going to do one better than promised and cut straight to ACTUAL prototypes.
