Good that the job was done to your satisfaction. Enjoy the view, and the cost will quickly be forgotten.

Your comments are really funny.

I have 8 dead trees on my 'yard'. Six are near the house and need to be disassembled from the top, in pieces. One leans toward the house, so this will need extra attention. The other two can be...

I had one. It was a 1980 wagon that I bought brand new. That car was as reliable as an anvil, and it went through anything (meaning deep snow and springtime mud). That is, until it broke a piston...

I enjoyed my CX650E, until it and I got flattened by a geriatric priest who turned left into me. His car was filled with blue-haired ladies, which must have been a distraction. I flew right over...

No, the previous owner didn't tighten the timing chain housing too tightly - I never tightened that nut at all, ever. Must have been the previous, previous owner. :)

I looked up Ollie's in AZ and that sounded good, but a small airport
A&P sounds even better. Sure, there are several small airports within an hour.

It's the #6 exhaust head stud hole, at the front. I wouldn't use J-B Weld for this repair, either.

I'm naturally looking for the simplest solution, since used cases are now so old and bad.

Those computer/scanner things work fairly well to duplicate any color. A body shop near here that works on everything from 356s to Vipers uses such a scanner and mostly they nail it.

Right, it's relatively easy to reach in there with the fan and alternator pulled out. I've done it. Since this engine is already out, it will be possible to do a complete clean-up with greater...

At least that's a little bit reassuring. Gives you a minute to get off the road and shut it down before complete disaster.

Wait a minute. There are two of these cars, the other being white? Why isn't the white one for sale? Looks like basic market manipulation, but what else can you expect from Sotheby's, et al? The...

The original post asked about the rear bumper. It is made of aluminum, not plastic. The valance below the bumper is steel. Not to worry.

Exactly the salient point. China can manufacture extremely high quality products, but it's money hungry merchandisers who demand cheap, cheap, cheap. This includes Porsche, Bosch, etc.
