I've been using buy car parts for most of my parts recently. I think they're part of Autodoc or just a different front, seem to have a decent selection of manufacturers at fair prices and both my orders have come from Germany. The only down side is it takes at least a week for the parts to arrive which isn't an issue if you're not in a hurry for them.

Converted the thermostat housing setup to use 4 studs instead of 2 and 2 of them funny long bolts they use as standard. Had to linish down one of the captive washers so it didnt foul the baker bm adapter but all in all this is a way better setup as the standard bolts only get a couple of threads of purchase into the head.

More of the front end back together. I've fitted the oil cooler in place but it's not plumbed in for the running in process.

And all back together

I've had it started and it seems to run well enough for the brief time it was on. I'm just waiting for a day of decent weather with no salt on the roads so i can take it for a long run and get everything ran in.
