    Hi Ray,
      This thread is awesome!!!!!!   Watching you machine these parts is very informative.  Appreciate the effort you take to document your progress. The parts look great.

    Hi Folks,
    Shaun,  Thank you and here is what I used...

    Thank Scott!
    Hi Ben,  Thanks, have you started yours yet?
    Thanks Tim !!
       You guys are too kind with the comments on the paint.  Have yet to finish up that part.
      Some progress to show...
         Some reference shots taken from the LaFerrari parts catalog. ....



      Made the decision to simplify the plumbing of the four different oil coolers that are mounted behind the screens in front of the rear wheel tubs.  I will run the piping directly to the coolers and not try to model the various values, filters and manifolds that you can see in the diagrams.
      The engine oil cooler is the larger one on the passenger side.  I ran lines  between the oil pump on the lower right side of the motor block to the cooler then from the cooler to the oil reservoir.
      The transaxle has two sets of lines.  One set runs from the left side rear of the transaxle over the top of the transaxle then up to the smaller cooler on the right side.
      The second set runs from the left side of the transaxle by the axle and up to the smaller (upper) cooler on the left side.
    The big square box gets lines running to the second cooler on the left side.
      Using the braided lines from 'Pro-Tech' .   Ferrari does not use the standard A&N fittings for these lines.  I made my versions using some plastic nut, bolt and washer castings from Tichy ,  nickel silver tubing from Albion and some copper colored nuts from RB Motion.

    Hi Mike,  At least you got one done !  It really looks pretty good in the photos.  I thought I was the only one that pulled that trick with Tamiya Thin!
