Fuel tank is cleaned and sealed with POR 15 kit. What a time consuming process! I also repainted it with truck bed liner. Tough coating and nice finish.

Finished tank assembly and reinstalled in the car. Cleaned all of the gauges, installed updated LED light bulbs for illumination, replaced odometer gear. Installed new dashboard from 924 Werk, installed new upper bearing bushing in steering column, installed steering column. Also glass guys glued in brand new windshield. I reassembled all of the upper and Pilar trims. Lots of time into interior. I want to drive it on beginning of June on Fuelfed Motogero rally. Hopefully I can make it happen....

Should you have painted the panel below the windshield satin black?

Looking great ...... keep the updates coming

If I could afford to do a restore like this with my M&R I would in a heartbeat! Wow!

Thank you guys. Budget wise it is not that bad. Most of the parts is fairly affordable, some are just extremely hard to find, especially for early cars. On the other hand amount of time spent is insane ! Lots and lots of time....

Small performance upgrade. We cut down flywheel and removed 3.5 lbs of weight. It should wake the motor up a bit. Everything helps when you have whooping 125hp !
