  2. Full heater box rebuild

  6. WTB - Speedo cable end

    Before I cut up my perfectly good 5spd speedo cable, hoping someone has a cable end I can take off their hands. Making the swap to a GPS speedo and don't need the cable any more. TIA.

  10. Much ado about much to do

    Finally sketched out the work plan to get the car done. Seats and door cards are on hold as they're not necessary to get the car moving again. With the console, gauges, and dash torn out, there is plenty to keep me busy. Gray is complete. Everything else is color coded by like/linked things.
