also... theres an early 90s turbo bentley for sale on RROC right now as well. those are MUCH more expensive to run. the guy on there has also posted his costs (dealer serviced with original bentley parts) and its approaching 6 figures as i recall... just since the late 90s. big money
thats probably on the way back burner for now... at least until its on the ground and running and we see if we have any more mechanical things to shake out. a grill is easy to find and fit so im not too worried about getting my hands on one of those...
no headlight wipers on this guy, i think that was only for the later shadow 2s...

Heh, it's nice to see someone else still using a non-ball bearing Craftsman toolbox. I've put off upgrading forever....... Word of advice, get some silicone spray for the drawer sliders. It's not as good as having ball bearings, but will make a nice difference, especially for heavily loaded drawers.
Oh, and nice car!
just got word back from the trans shop that the rebuilt unit is ready, along with 2 other trans worth of spare parts - that will probably get sold on RROC when the time comes.
hoping to pick everything up friday afternoon and take some shots.
found a guy on RROC who will let me borrow a crank bolt socket so i can get runout on the flexplate, and use it while installing the trans.
if i can find enough time this should be wrapped up sooner rather than later
also poking around the car last weekend reminded me i probably need to order some random tuneup parts for when this hits the road - spark plugs, air filter, new plug wires.
thanks for reading and ill keep updating as we make more progress
and we managed to acquire a sizable collection of RHD 4spd stuff
working with alber's to get some tune up parts for its road debut - air filter looks like an old birds nest! hah and waiting on the crank sprocket tool - should be in this week, then the real work starts
