    Came in Saturday morning and finished up the shifter install. Total pain, but small balls need lots of love.

    Parts have been stacking up for this one. 8B019473-69DB-46F8-82E4-3932C651F7580E2357A9-0C0A-4355-AD2F-003C3D5099DD21FB1524-BB4C-43FE-ABDE-194040DDDAA7

    Going to finish the brake system today. Unstuck, blasted and rattle can painted some OG brake  hardware. Fresh German rear drums epoxy sealed, paint when dry. Assembling front wheel cylinders now. 97104F15-6FDB-4017-A386-C720EEAA6D94783A8755-C032-45D3-93A8-F1FA7CBE20DC9A3D380C-CFF7-4AA3-873E-E35C04BFF81254923D96-19BF-4ADE-958D-849EB7FAD448
