Oil cooler box riveted

Before final attachment of the engine mount or brake hoses, but after insulating the bottom of the firewall, we riveted the oil cooler box and insulated it:

This was a small step to resolve a dependency chain where we wanted those rivets done before installing hte brake hoses, which in turn was much easier to get done before riveting the panel, which in turn had to be done before insulating the top of the firewall.

Once all insulation is done, we'll actually reattach the engine mount and hang the engine for good.

Time lapse:

Total engine installation rivets: 63
Total engine installation time: 14.4h
