I propped the radiator up out of the way so I could get the splined shaft out of the transmission. This worked very well and I didn't have to drain the coolant.




After it got dark I got distracted by my glow in the dark car:




Atleast my glasses arn't crooked.

So I got everything back together and reverse-bled the slave cylinder. It works! Tomorrow I'll put all the pressure plate bolts in, put the tail lights on, and should have the car driving street legal before monday.

I took two other pictures while I was in the shop. Here's one of dad's new '75 3 door.


Has a little rear end damage there. Thats why we got it, the guy who was restoring it left it out on the street infront of his shop. Hit and run.

Here is the SPG undergoing a heart transplant. We've had this car for about 10 years, and he is thinking of selling it.

Quinn.
Can you search for a '77 ems for me out there?
They are truly impossible to locate here.
Considering nice body, will rebuild everything else.
I really don't have the $$ for body repair in these parts. but i'm good at the fine details
I've started to drive back roads looking in people's back forty for them.
People are hiding these.....Aghhhhhh

Paul needs to trick out that 99 and stop being a pussy.

We have a 1970 and a 1975 99 coupes for sale. Neither one is an EMS but that doesn't matter, they are both perfect bodies with perfect windshields and need everything else, so it can be an EMS when you're done

We're taking low offers.

The '85T 900 had the sweet turbo punch. I liked that turbo better than the '88.

So this car is running like crap. Idles fine but get it on the road and your not going anywhere. I smelled bad gas so that means I need to take everything apart and check it.. ugh.

It also doesn't roll very easily and sounds like it has two bad wheel bearings.

I see the need for clutch shrouds now that my flywheel has taken a substantial amount of skin off one of my knuckles.

Skinned them while the car was running? Sucks!

Is that car K-Jet "basic"?
