Oil Cooler Cross Brace

I didn’t have much time in the shop last night, but I did pick up some aluminum from the Aircraft Isle at Home Depot to make a cross brace on the oil cooler.  This will help reduce impact of vibration and hopefully eliminate any cracking of the baffles over time.  Again I am not worried about the extra weight with this type of reinforcement since I have the composite prop which has saved several pounds by itself.  With this aside from priming and painting, also some changing out bolts/washers for more appropriate support I am pretty much wrapped up with the oil cooler.   Very clean install and I am glad that I can pretty much call this done.
