Default DIY Coolant Reroute Spacer

I sketched this up last night and thought it might be of interest to anyone else contemplating machining their own coolant reroute spacer.

This looks great. Thinking of doing this to get my temps down.

Have you made (or had this part made) to verify its fitment?

If the head is off the car, just tap it for water or the sensor. If not, buy the JR spacer, tap it for ports, and cut a groove for the thermostat.
