6082 alloy BMW oil filler and drain fittings

These are oil filler and drain fittings made from 6082 alloy, for a BMW racing outfit. The tubes will be welded onto the alloy oil tank, hence 6082 rather than my normal 7075 alloy as it has better weldability.

The filler sit smack bang squarely in front of the back wheel, so i’ve drilled some lockwire holes in the cap for safety’s sake, we don’t want that coming off half way down Craner Curves! And i put some in the drain cap as well, just to be sure it doesn’t drain half way round Goddards!
