Looks like a Moroso "Our Best" pan, so I would add similar baffling; three walls and two trap doors. I would work on the pick-up first then baffle around the pick-up. Making the springs and hinges is going to be the hard part.

Keith, your starter is on the side I like to do the most work to.

My phone that had your # went south. PM me your # and I will call and tell you what has worked for me. I will totally screw up trying to get the fingers to keep up with the brain on a post.

Nice work on the pan.

Springs? Pans should just use the oil to slam shut a baffle if needed. If the oil is trying to get to the sump the springs will hold it from getting there.

DITTO on both statements.

almost done. i still need to add a drain plug and fittings on each side for oil return from the SC (in case i decide on twins later) and a bolt on plate for the bottom. Adam helped out a lot on the baffles/louvers Cool . once i get the pan on, i still have one more baffle to make for the pickup.

Fantastic job!

Why the inspection plate access panel in the bottom? Looks to me like a leak waiting to happen, and violates the KISS principle unless there is a strong need for it to be there.

the reason for the plate on the bottom is so i can install/remove the pan with the engine in the car and be able to put the pump in after pan installation. im more worried that i will never get the cover off once i install it. both, the cover and the piece its bolted to, are 10 gauge plate. it has 18, 10-32 fasteners. these will be studs at final assembly and everything will have red loctite. im now looking for some of the silicone that International uses for their oil pans. once that stuff cures it has to be chiseled off.
