Well, a project this big, and apart needs planning.. And when the engine is apart, the easiest way to make sure none of the major bits get lost is to semi put it together..

After laying everything out, taking pix(and sending them in "real time" to the buyer in Germany, you figure what goes back in the engine & what gets boxed.

The parts that don't go back, get bagged, boxed and this too gets photographed to make it easier for the new owner to know where everything is.

Wow. You went above and beyond the call. A few years back, I shipped a RHD '65 over to the UK. Every orifice of the car was filled with stuff, except for the engine bay. It was a little ironic because there was a $10k gearbox on passenger floor. A $3k set of rebuilt Solexes stashed in a sealed box. Doughtery cams in another box. An empty 2.0l Aluminum case where the back sets would go, and 2 full sets of 4.5x15 Fuchs. There was barely enough room to reach through the window and steer the thing and pull the e-brake once it was in the container...

Thanks Matt, this car didn't floors:Dhttp://forums.pelicanparts.com/uploa...1329247510.jpg

My '65 was missing the floors too. I got creative with some plywood to keep everything in place for the shipping.

Looks like the VIN is missing a number? (914043224)

Should be 10 digits, not 9 ;)
