That picture represents half the order - I actually dropped off two engines' worth! Generally speaking there isn't a huge penalty for more pieces - loading up the powder in the first place is the big cost, and more pieces are little increments. The entire order of 16 parts was $200.

As a point of reference the shop that did the exhaust manifold above in ceramic was $150. So, that's the difference between 16 pieces in basic powder in California and one piece in ceramic in rural Washington state.

In both cases I just dropped off whatever came right off the engine (or out of the brackets box ). They steam cleaned, blasted & coated.

Getting there!

Finished installing my BMW power steering reservoir:

Pretty happy about this. BMW E36 bottle, Saab 9-5 bracket, factory 900 suction hose, modified 900 return hose... the modification is 1' of 1/2" ID hose and a 1/2"->3/8" union secured with some Oetiker clamps. Time will tell how it ages, but I'm always up for getting rid of tough to find parts.

Got the accessories all installed and head on, which felt pretty satisfying.

I had to call it a day at that point, but assuming nothing gets in the way, it should be wrapped up next weekend.
