    Looks good! I just hope you've gotten all of the metal shavings out of the engine. It takes a very small amount of them to get ground up and start causing damage to bearings/surfaces, pistons/walls, etc. Unfortunately, I have a Nissan engine that suffered this fate...

    We left a single metal shaving inside because we're using the homeopathic approach to engine health.

    Just kidding. But seriously, sorry about your Nissan.

    Okay, it did sound pretty distasteful.

    My comedy doesn't always fire on all cylinders.

    (This is a car forum, so I hope I don't have to explain that one.)

    a/c compressor

    The oil filler got in the way of the a/c lines, so spacers have been installed - and, as a result, a slightly longer serpentine belt has also been installed.
