i've had one electric fan for a while now. for some reason i thought there wasn't room for a second one... i was wrong.

in the process of wiring the second fan, i found i didn't like the way the first fan was wired. so i rewired both of them! that ground in the foreground is just for the relays.

Nice. Both fans will help. Also hope you didn't use those POS straps that come with most electric fans that go through the radiator. Many years ago, I personally ended up with a bad radiator because of them. Also had to replace another radiator last year in a friends scout because some other shop used them.

i did use those special zip tie things one one side of each fan. they are not through the radiator though. they're fastened to the ac condenser. the OE condensers are very sturdy, plus i have a spare, lol. thanks for your concern.
