Glass man showed up and installed front and rear with no problems in and out in two hours...couple more days and I’ll be at the finish line.

My view today here at Mid-America in Eureka Springs, Arkansas 

Couple days late to post but the Touring arrived after its 2 month journey from Italy.

Reviewed the mock-up of my new stainless steel header for the M10 (one portion of the project to design/build performance engines from intake through the tailpipe). -KB

Not near as cool as Kbmb02 but I’ll post it  none the less.

 

’73 Chamonix-

 

I flip flopped my plans for today so I didn’t  quite finish the new brake hard lines. I still need to create the front to back line and strap everything down.

What I did make some nice progress on was the shortblock.

Cleaned/blasted/painted the oil pan. I shimmed the oil pump. Replaced the Rear main seal. Installed the front crank seal. Install the lower timing cover, oil pan, and a bunch of other painted parts. I think It might be time to mate the trans to the engine next week some time. 😁

I put in rear seat belts (and one front). I wanted to share a couple of valuable tips.

 

One, when you get the bottom cushion out, if you want to access the inner bolts without removing the seat back all the way, simply prop-up it up with  your Dyson Vacuum (see photo).

 

Two, and this is very important - DO NOT tell your spouse/partner that you used the $700 plastic vacuum to prop-up the seat.

Found some NOS fenders in Germany (where esle right.. ;) )

After 1660km of driving we arrived back home with our find. The guy selling these was a real enthusiast, he even works together with Schnitzer to make replica E9 race cars, He even invited us to come to the Nürburgring when they have a test day in the future lol.

He also has this.. not registered since 1980!!

I gave one panel a very quick test fit and am very pleased! We definitely made the right call to buy some original sheet metal :)50079123908_d9e178aa64_b.jpg

Having just done the brake lines in the engine bay, I'll comment that you should try to get the passenger side lines to lay as close to the wall of the wheel well as possible (especially right as they go through the grommets) if there is a header in your future.
