Heh, two months since my last update.

The car is completely stripped and at the body shop. The first order of business is a full sand blast to figure out what needs to be fixed, patched, or replaced.

Before I dropped the car off I took some final measurements so I could finish the radiator/oil cooler duct and with the car gone, I finally had some room to work to finish it. The finished product:



I split the inlet for dedicated flow to the oil cooler:



Removable side plates allow the duct to seal to the oil cooler but also be removed separately, if needed:



What it looks like with the oil cooler installed:



The remaining round holes allow everything to fit around that inconvenient front bar the FC has. I decided to leave the back of the oil cooler open to the radiator because I'm concerned the radiator wouldn't get enough flow if they were completely separate.

It's not perfect - I used what I had available. I'll probably add some weatherstripping to the edges that'll contact the body, oil cooler, and radiator to protect them and maybe seal a little better.
