I think someone earlier had that panel off amdlost the original screws.

I would leave the trans oil line alone, it’s going to take a long time for surface rust to go throughout the pipe, like a decade.

Sorry for seeming to abandon this thread.
The site's downtime and the unexpected death of my sister derailed me for a while.

I remember my header panel screws being the same length.

When i was looking at the bolts i noticed that my transmission cooler return line looked pretty gnarly and rusted as well. Would you guys worry about this transmission cooler return line looking the way it is and change it or would you leave it alone?

The metal part that goes into the radiator and the metal part that connects to the transmission have a lot of surface rust, not sure how far into the metal the rust goes.


Regards,
Sam
I don't think these rust areas will be a problem unless you are in a coastal or area that uses lots of road salt. If you want to do something for the rust areas, mask off the areas and spray with primer/paint spray can. It will slow down the rust and look better. I would use a flat gray.
