Just amassing more parts.

Nabbed this out of a late ’70s Benz. It looks perfect but I have yet to power it up and test it. I’ll definitely need to clean the tape player as I can see gunk on the head. I’ll likely end up selling it, I saw one on eBay get up to $52 without making reserve. I’d be happy to sell this one for that.

I stimulated the economy on Veteran’s Day by getting this Getrag 245 and driveshaft out of an ’81 E21 320i with 140,000mi for half price. Looks like my next big project will officially be doing a 5-speed conversion. Cost? Under $100.

After a little quality time with a razor blade, then a can of engine degreaser and a pressure washer. Still needs a little more work cleaning it but at least now I don’t need to go for the Fast Orange when I look at it or think about it.
