Odds and ends.

Replaced the exhaust manifold gasket; yup, not hard to see where the old one was leaking!

Finally took care of something I’d been meaning to finish up for a long time. A spare valve cover had been modified to remove the oil filter and dipstick (both being redundant due to the dry sump). Also shaved off the HONDA logo, which will be replaced by a MIDLANA logo. However, before the newly powder-coated part could be installed, all the blasting media had to be removed… there was more than I expected. I really like how it changes the engine compartment; it makes it look much more integrated and clean.

Finally, the air filter scoop was replaced with another of the same.
