A few more from today. All glass comes out Saturday. I then remove the dash to recover in leather and get the instrument/ gauges off to have him paint the instrument panel the same color as the exterior:

While Alejandro worked on fixing the rust in the lower part of the front fenders, I took out all the heater/blower parts and removed the dash and instrument cluster.

Before:



Work in progress:



And my work... Easy to just remove stuff... the tricky part is to be able to put it all back together when the time comes

Found a few photos of the color we want for the project:





What the tank will look like once it is done... TRE should be shipping the Center Fuel Fill kit any day now.

Part numbers for the oil lines needed:

Engine stand ready to so that I can split the engine from the transmission and mount it in the stand to have better access. Need to remove broken exhaust bolts, install new (older style) oil lines in preparation for the headers and exhaust.

That was the short update... here is the more detailed one...

First measured the center of the hood line... moved that to the tank and drilled the hole in the tank...







Then marked the hood ( for both of these steps, a plumb-bob came in handy). Alejandro cutting the hole in the hood:







Let's test height... remember to use the rubber gasket for the last test..

Last few checks before welding in place:



Let's do this...





After bending the metal around where the fiber glass finishing ring goes... some epoxy to hold it in place...

Back to the project...

I wanted to break apart the transmission from the engine to mount the engine on a stand and be able to work with some broken exhaust bolts, get the oil lines back dated, and have it ready for when I get the exhaust system that I want. I also wanted to inspect the clutch's conditon.

Good news is that it was easy to take it apart. And from inspecting the clutch, fork, etc, everything seems to be new.

Thank you for those that responded on my previous thread on questions about how to take it apart.

First I needed to remove the two tensioning springs...







Removed the starter, the nuts holding the case to the engine... put the transmission jack... and slide out the transmission. I am so happy that it did not give me a fight.





Clutch fork, gaskets, o-rings, all looks to be new...





Surface rust on the pressure plate...



And clutch disk also looks to be new...



Now I just need to move the engine to the stand so that I can work with removing the old exhaust and broken exhaust bolts.

So far it has been going well... I would not say fast... wished the body and paint were done... But thank you for the kind words.

Moved engine from hydraulic table to the engine stand.







Broken exhaust bolts/studs. Exhaust Stud Repair Tool ordered from Christian... looks like I will make good use of it...



Lots of WD-40 and hoping these come out...

Oil line ordered (911-107-739-10-M127) :



Also ordered the Clutch Arm Helper Spring and Backlash Spring for when I install the transmission back to the engine. And I ordered the Expandable Oil Return Tube Kit in case I mess up the return tube next to the oil line...

Everything should be here next week.
