Put the cutoff wheels down!

If you can't find a pan that has the sump in the right place, get a pan
without a sump. It would add a uniqueness to your project while allowing you
to not have to worry about clearances.

Check this guy out, saw this ad on for $100.
The ad said it was expired so here's the phone number in case it's taken
down: 310-650-3566
or 805-226-8360.

Might be worth a call, the pan looked like it would get the job done. If it
was me I would try and include it just because of the sticker on it.
