Cleaned out the garage enough so we can sand the engine bay down and prep it for painting!

Don't go back to the steel clips. Just hammer he clipholders downs and use the new plastic ones+window trim. The only thing those old steel clips do, is rot.

ps do you have a pic of the trunk? I need some info about how the rearlights are protected. Is it the same as a late 142; just a long piece of cardboard al along de outside of de trunk?

Yesterday got to work on making the rear bumper fit better. First thing to do was to short the bumperstops. this will allow a smaller gap between the bumper and the body.

I do still need to get 2 extra rubbers that go on the bumpers, anybody has one?

Been messing around with getting the trans on the toreque converter mated. I never had issues on this with the BW35 on my 144 but the mate of the AW71 proved harder, Ended up bolting up the transmission with the toreque converterto the block and then bolting it up to the flexplate. Seems like you need a angle and turn it for it to fit? Oh im just happy its all bolted on there now :-)

Probably looks good in reallife, but you phone-pix are killing it.
Will it be ready for the Elandrun this year? So it can be seen in the wild :D
