Oil cooler Door

Anyone know someone who makes a clean oil cooler drain plug door that you can bolt on. I'd like to cut access to my drain plug and use something clean to cover it up. OR if you have a CNC I'd like to buy one.

Sending message. I email Richard but never heard back. No online store to buy from?

Well finally installed the oil cooler door and Ez valves. The oil pan bolt was stripped out, so I had to use a extractor. Also whoever had this car before me used a **** AC Delco oil filter that's half the size as the SRT one. The jeep took 7 3/4 quarts of the good stuff to fill it up.

Since I had the bumper cover off, I used a Fumoto F107SX quick drain, rotated it pointing straight down. Attached an included straight nipple (not the 90 deg pictured) and a piece of clear vinyl tubing. Drilled a 5/8" hole to pass the tubing through and done.

I can open the oil cooler drain valve reaching through the oil filter/oil pan access opening in the belly pan. No need to cut/have an access hole or cover.

How big of a pain in the ass is it removing the bumper? I might have future work to do.

It is more scary to think about than actually to do it. Mine was a little more work as I had to remove my front splitter from the bumper before actually removing the bumper cover.

So not difficult and requires only basic hand tools to remove the bumper, however I wouldn't remove it just for the oil cooler drain. Rather I combined the oil cooler project when I had to remove the bumper for my supercharger interchiller project.

A bumper removal would also be a good time to install a SRT LED lower grill logo, bumper LED light, remote radar detector sensor or swap out the headlights for ones that have different color daytime running lights while it is off.
Agree looks a lot better. And it is really proffisonelly machined and Richard was very easy to do business with and he even gave me a refund of some unfortunate customs fees.
Can higly recommend his work.
Will post a new picture when it's on the car.
