    Double checked valve setup today and then starting to get the motor / tinware re-assembled, wont be long before i can see if it'll fire up. Had to do a bit of trimming to make new oil cooler fit but so far so good!

    Nice looking tinware. Is that paint or powder coat?

    Vht spray cans from Autobarn, the red is a silver anodised base coat with a red translucent overcoat, black gloss on the remaining tin ware plus cast iron on the fan housing. Came up pretty good considering, must be my state of the art spray booth!!

    Oil cooler was after market from VW hertitage, seems decent quality but i had a couple of mods to make. Firstly, the end where the mounting bracket sits has a small lip on all 4 corners and this needs to be ground off so the bracket fits, secondly, the end where the oil ports are is a slightly different shape than the original and was fouling on the mounting nut for the oil filter manifold. A few minutes with the grinder and dremel, no dramas.
