I am one more step closer to driving to this event!
Replaced the rear main seal and trans seals last weekend, along with clutch and related stuff. Now my car cruises down the road without smelling like burnt oil.
Still on my list: convert to manual steering, swap my non A/C console back in, under-dash shelves, upgrade to 16v rear sway bar, possibly 35% window tint (no darker), hatch seal, sunroof seal, re-do rear brake system.
wow my list is longer than I thought. Lots of work to do!
