    I never get tired of looking at the flow of the early flairs. The curves and lines were just so right.

    The gearbox was home to some mud daubers, as was many areas of the underside of the car. Also a fair amount of old oil, need to locate the source.

    Going to replace the engine mounted 914-6 oil cooler with a proper '72 oil cooler and clean up the topside.
    Clutch was oil soaked so it will get replaced, and as said locate the source of the oil and fix.

    Great Progress Bob.

    I have a feeling this will be on the road in no time.

    Who's car will be ready first? Bob seems to have a head start, but Jamie doesn't appear to ever sleep.

    Since the motor was out might as well clean up a bit. Made some positive improvement.

    The gearbox looks much better now that the mud daubers have moved on. Both the transmission and engine mounts looked as old as I do, so time to replace, not me yet.
