My “Brum” which I bought some 10 years ago came without mounting holes in the radiator which I believe was made by Jack Butterworth, presumably to specific instructions from the then owner. This same previous owner had constructed a supporting platform which could have been a part of the Forth Bridge it was so ugly and over engineered. I had no choice but to fabricate a replacement platform which utilises one of the radiator bolts to attach it to the front of the frame. The radiator sits on a thin but strong steel platform with Velcro to hold it in place. It has worked well, the Velcro is totally hidden and the whole platform is virtually invisible. The total weight of the radiator is taken by its base. The coolant hoses help of course.
