I also got my new powdercoated rear subframe back. Wrinkle black. Looks sexy.

Also got the main Lakewood traction bar back after having it powdercoated in wrinkle red. Also sexy as hell. gonna go the 3 support bars for it in wrinkle red also. The red paint on them sucks and peels lol.

lol.

Got SOME stuff done...not enough. Effin shop still hasn't gotten a new vice yet...and I forgot ALL my -6an hose at home, all 11 ft of it. Boo.
I'll take care of all that cooling stuff on Tuesday, plus the oil lines and cooler, as well as the thermostatic plate.

Any suggestions are welcome.

- The fans FIT, but I had to cut a bit off of the bottom of the surround to clear the lines. Overall, I have 1-2" of space before it touches the turbo housing, it should be fine.
- The new oil feed line is in, perfect size and angle directly into the turbo from the head.
- Line I made for the sensors are working -near- how I want them to...I had to chop a bit of the bracket for the coil pack so the the rear heater line can fit on the bottom, also a bit off the top so the sensor line can fit better...I can have it rest right on the bracket for the coil pack, so there is the support for all that weight lol.
- Gonna make all the -6 lines for the cooling that I need this weekend/monday. Gotta pick up some fittings, again, blah.
- Got titanium wrap and stainless zip ties so I can make a new oil drain line as well. It's close to the dp, so I might as well protect it a little bit more.
