and Intake Manifold and even jazzed up the oil cap !








As i do more Im realizing that a small list of minor replacement parts should be done, rad, hoses, bolts, clamps, even replacing the starter as it is so easy to get at now.

I started some cleaning on one side, took the started out, might as well replace it since im there. cleaned up the block with a wire brush and solvent, then painted it gloss black engine enamel. Took out the PS and lines and scuffed the driver wheel arch and cut off some useless brackets and sprayed some trim black. Paint is wet in the pic.













PS High pressure line was leaking, dammit ! more crap to buy

i made the gauge pod myself from an aluminum sheet and bent a flange to fit behind the ash tray, measured and cut and drilled 3 holes with a hole saw, glued autometer angle rings and intstalled the gauges. I made a cardboard plate mock up first then cut the metal. it took some time, but i think it was worth it.


thanks for the comments.

Nice job man,

The only thing I noticed is that the bolts for the flex disk on the drive shaft. Some of those are supposed to face the other way. On the flex disc there are arrows indicating the direction the bolt should be facing. Not 100% sure why but logically if they were to come loose the bolts could all just slide out. If 1/2 of the bolts are facing the other way they would get backed up against the transmission and couldn't fully fall out.

Who knows it might not matter.

Awesome job I like the attention given to cleaning and painting the parts, I've been there
