Over the weekend I got a lot of the holes under and on the dash welded up. The holes where not factory but from alarm and radio installs.

I hope in the spring . Depends on if I have it painted or try it my self in the spring. Right now I'm just working on it when I can. I don't like sanding indoors so nice days are few and far apart. I'm also thinking of pulling the body but I'm not sure its going to happen just to change the body seal. What's your opinion on the 200mm 6volt flywheel on a 12 volt system. I'm looking at one on the samba but it been lightened?

Yeah I hate sanding period! Does the car leak at the seal now? What size engine? If the car is already 12 volt I would just run a 12 volt flywheel and clearance the bell housing if needed and use an auto stick starter with the self supporting shaft so you dont have to worry about a starter bushing.

No it don't leak that I know of but I only had it on the road a few months. I'm putting a 1600 in. The PO had 12 volt starter in the car. I thought something was wrong with the starter but when I pulled the engine it had a 6volt flywheel ? It had chewed the teeth up pretty good

If the car doesn't leak at the pan gasket I would leave it together if the the only reason to pull it apart is to replace the gasket. I have known more than a few cars to leak with new pan gaskets.

Ive also been trying to decide to try to paint it myself or find a shop to do it.
I also got a set of pop outs ! I got a set of aftermarket rear fenders also, as I could not find a set that matched.

Thanks Bryce for the clip and washer bottle it was nice to meet you. I wish I had the money just to drop it off with you, But ill just have to do my best here." />

I saw that one I thought about it. Mine may be a combination of the two. I may cut the side sheet metal long to mark on the car.

This morning I got this jig made up. Picks up all four tank bolts



I was surprised it fit in the damaged front clip. I had pulled it out before I took the pic.
