No need for a lot of force. You can simply push it in with the palm of your hand.

To remove the section in the red circle and get a perfect finish (Dremel will leave divots) I wrapped a piece of sanding paper around a a painters mixing stick and shaped it by hand.

And after.......

the cover will be powder coated texture black to match the oil pan with ARP bolts. The thing is I'm now thinking of dry sumping

Note: The areas where the bushings fit are polished to a mirror finish.

Looking at the pieces you are creating, it reminds me of Pagani and his attention to detail. I have nothing technical to add to you're thread but

I'm wondering, with all that excess casting/material that Nathan has sanded off from each indiviual piece, would this actually translate to several pounds of weight loss???

lol more than several, more like several hundred when taken in total with everything else he's doing. When he's done this car is going to be under 3,500 lbs; maybe even under 3,400.

Paganis are one of my favorite cars. Those are truly a work of engineering ART!

That's the goal, 3,400 as it's going to be basically set up as a track car, ie, no AC, radio/speakers, rear seat, etc...

Here is a pic of the HH back from getting blasted. The only insignia I left was the Hammerhead logo.

Tomorrow it will go to get Ultrasonically cleaned. This is the same process used to clean surgical equipment. It took me a long time to find a shop with one as it's a really expensive piece of equipment, in most case $15,000 on up. Next it will go to the powder coater. The reason I'm not doing not powder coating first is because the ultrasonic dunk will hurt the finish. The goal for the cleaning it to make sure it's there aren't any metal shaving. Below id a picture of my block which I had cleaned as well.

A bunch of updates to come as I'm a lot further a heads than the updates. It just takes a lot of time to organize, sort and post and time is something I have little of right now.
