A new alloy oil cooler from the old one

Well first we need the old one, the one in the picture must be nearly twenty years old?

The original silver paints were removed with the bead blasting machine, then an hour was spent with a small tool making the vanes straight again.

The orange plastic nipples are there to block the entry into the cooler up, the correct hex headed pipe ends are used when the alloy oil cooler is in service.

The application of Hammerite silver paint with a high volume low pressure spray gun makes the job.
As good as new, nearly!
