I agree, you can just blank off the holes for the heater. It's only like the valve is closed so won't cause any running issues. My question is are you mad though? The heater is a necessity just to be able to see where you are going! I cannot imagine running without it.

The bolt though the thermostat housing is fine. I would of chopped some of the excess threads of though just to tidy it up.

The fuel pump, I can see a potential problem. You have joined the piping using rubber hose. My friend Steve had an issue where the rubber disintegrated (as it's submerged in fuel) and then the pipe leaked internally causing running issues that were really hard to find. Ideally you should replace that with plastic pipe which is what was used in the standard car.

Good luck with the gearbox internals swap. Any issues just send me a PM.
If tha does owt fo nowt, olas do it fo this 'en.
