Yes I already tested it out and it works great, and I know I need a case saver.
Good job! Looks great. I would drill an oil drain hole in it. If you are careful when you remove the drain plug, you can drain your oil without making a mess. I made a helluva mess with mine at first, but Brian got my thinking straight As far as aesthetics... I would give it hell with a scotchbrite pad and call it a day.
