Brief Description:  Oil Cooler Install #1

I began to tackle the job of locating, fabricating, and installing the oil cooler mount. As always there is a little intrepidation because it it a high ticket item and you are drilling through the critical firewall and structure so it's gotta be right the first shot in my book. So it is to the drawing board and this session had more thinking than doing.

I started by putting the engine mount on the firewall temporarily in order to figure out the location and orientation of the cooler. I was hoping to mount it parallel with the lateral axis if possible. So with the plenum temporarily mounted to the oil cooler I basically began thinking and coming up with a process plan.
