    Cold and wet has ruined the fun of late, so I started working on the door tops. I know zilch about filllers and bodywork but I at the shop everyday, so no sense in not trying. I started by flattening the odd seam on top of the door and filling with Evercoat short strand. Worked great after a few test runs and at least there arent any more funny voids and cracks. Not sure if I want to prime it or leave it. The short strand is waterproof.

    I'd take a rattle can of primer and just dress it up. You can always sand it of when you get ready to prime the whole car.

    Like it, I still need to figure out a way to add a cup holder that can fold away out of site when not used.

    Odometer is sitting ust south of 1000 miles, wife and I did 131 today in 93 * heat. A top and air will be mandatory for summer road trips, but its certainly a well mannered, drivable car. We did a rolling thunder salute to the staff at my wifes hospital last night with a couple of hundred motorcycles....

    This car goes 35mph better than anything. 3rd gear, 2000rpm and just cruise. Right exhaust note, right in the cams happy spot and just chill around town. And immediate zip if you want to eat a Porsche. No work whatsoever on the car. Just miles. It’s such a competent little car. I really should finish it. But it’s so much fun to drive. Maybe in the winter.

    And just like that, the party is over. At least temporarily. The throwout bearing I got from speedway in my hydraulic clutch kit died. Replacement was $390. First one was all of 75. That’s what I get for inviting cheap parts to the party. It’s also exactly why I didn’t go straight to paint. Hopefully I can just sneak the transmission out the back. If not, I’ll have to pull the engine and trans as an assembly.

    I pulled the tranny from inside. Seats and tranny tunnel removed, it wasn't that bad a job.

    I can’t get out of my own way lately. Poor car is missing spring. I need to pull the trans.
