Orrrr we could find another guy and 95 Slab. If I ship you three, you make all of them up. Swap one onto your car and make that one as well. Then the other two guys toss each of us a little cash to cover the pans and work/material.

That way you and I get freebies and they get low cost. It'* been a thought of mine for a while. I just haven't gotten over to my local TIG buddies place yet.

Dan said this when I asked him.

I cut a steel bar then milled it flat and so the end of the plug wont stick out. Then welded it in place, and then drilled the hole in the pan.
