Sharp eye :-) I´m in Denmark. I love the wrinkle finish,- my wife hates me, when I put it in her oven, though
;)

I'm in Norway, btw

Special feeling when the next generation has both the skills and access to equipment you always wish you had yourself ;)

Here is a shot of my son setting up the oil pump for making o-ring grooves:

And when he was happy, he started producing chips:

And here is the result:

So with o-ring sealings on both sides of the ports, I hope my oil pressure/temp issue will be even a little bit better than last year

Another productive afternoon in the garage. My son worked on his own car today so I was on my own.

But I wanted to fit the lower cooling tins, so I found an old set in the parts bin and started fitting them to the engine:

After some grinding, I took them for a round in the blasting cabinet:

Then a lick of etch primer and flat black paint

Having access to a lathe and other machining tools is fantastic. My sons are aged 2 & 6 years, so not quite ready to start helping me in the garage yet.

How do you do it? I do a light coat, let it dry for about 15 min them do the thickest coat I can apply without runs. Then I heat it in an oven at 100 Celsius for about an hour. The stuff i can’t fit in the oven is placed under a UV light for an hour or more. The heat is very imported for getting the finish right. Even distribution of the heat is difficult with the UV light, but changing the angle of light a few times works ok.
My finish after heating:

Thanks, the oven is not large enough for the large parts, but UV-light was a good idea :)

I gave up the wrinkle-finish and went back to hammerite...

Other than this; I am waiting for some parts so I can do the final assembly before spring comes ;)
