Radiator pipes - in tunnel?

Most buggies are running the coolant lines outside the buggy, but is there another option to this? Inside the tunnel?

there is yes but its a time consuming job to do it in the tunnel, bracing, clearance and stopping them rubbing on other items such as handbrake lines, gear shift rod, and pedal assemblies is tricky.

space is a premium in the tunnel and exiting them in an orderly fashion is a PITA....

much easier option on the outside and you can run bleed screws in the high spots

one down each side and if you keep them as high as possible not many people will see them,,,,paint them black and way you go...
if in doubt hit it with speed.... just don't hit the cactus!
