    I am already planning on making one for myself. I just need to work out a few details on it and make a 3D model of it first.

    I was able to machine the replacement thermostat flange today and weld it onto an old housing assembly.

    First I had to make a fixture to hold it while I cut the profile.


    Milling the small holes out.


    Machining the flange out of 3/8" mild steel plate.


    A flange is born.


    After welding, grinding, machining the mating surface flat and a bad temporary spray job to see what it would look like. It will be sandblasted and properly refinished later on.
