And to reiterate:

DO NOT tighten the oil strainer nut more then 9 ft lbs if you open the strainer up, or internal engine damage will occur that requires a complete tear down of the engine.

Expensive paint jobs and restorations are usually the death knell of enjoying a car. OH THE HORROR of the first scratches.

Indeed the POR-15 "Marine Clean" degreaser is great stuff, but i think you still want to rinse it thoroughly.

This makes me think of John Prince’s song, “Hello, in There”.
John Prine, one of the special souls that we lost to COVID this year.

It's a horrible job, indeed. I think it is the worst VW job I have encountered. The hardest part is getting on the back side of the wheel buckets. It's a collection point for dirt, with only a small d ...

I guess if it were me, and the clock is truly dead, I'd probably buy a wall clock mechanism off Amazon for like $10, and take the clock apart and rebuild it with a AA battery clock mechanism. So you ...
