    Out of the car bc when i would go over bumps there would ber a small squeek from one of the bolts by your right hip (that bracket I made). Took it out and changed the things around a bit, used a different spacer, added one lock washer, inspected it. I also ran the fog light wire under the seat/rug area there and was easier to simply take the seat out.

          Finally got around to installing the black ebay door handles. OMFG, do not buy these on ebay! The drivers side door lock screw holes were in the wrong spot, and each handle had to be modified to lock in place. PITA, but they are in, looks good.

            Well. I was told it was hard to swap synchros on the MS/CS. Umm... this was easy. Only need to "persuade" one of the gears off.







            Old vs. new. (although these aren't the syncros in the car now, these came with the transmission)


            Ta-Da!



            Next....MS...



            I have to double check this step. I think I may have messed this up. This is to say "which way is the shift fork collar allowed to slide off the syncroniz
            er and which way does the assembly go on.




            Anywyas, all done. Going to tripple check things, order a bearing kit and get this thing installed.

                  Do you have a "Longboard" sander thing?

                    Ya, that's my problem. When I tried this the first time I thought "I'll just add filler and use a flat item to smooth it out using the edges of the spoiler as a guide." Nope, as the edges are a "wave" too. So I watched some videos and learned to hand feel out the low and high spots, fill in accordingly.

                    Now time to mess it up by sanding :P

                        I like learning. Think i got this one. Learned from tv shows and youtube that you simply have to do a combination of sanding (hand/block/etc.) for this material. The layer of filler should be air free and smooth for less sanding and less fill later on. I hand felt the high spots, circled and penciled in the low spots. Sand, fill again... repeat until perfect.





                        But even dimples like these you can see when done. So i will have to fill again and sand again.

                          Are you using a "Guidecoat"? I heard that was useful for finding high and low spots.
                          Then use filler putty to fill in small pinholes and stuff

                          Looking good!

                            Thanks, now i know there is a term for what i was doing. Guidecoating.
                            I watched some videos and I was doing it right. Amazing how much sanding it takes to remove the guidecoat or pencil marks. Goes to show how much work is required by hand and why people use power sanders. I get the 3M thing but i just used spray paint or a pencil.

                                Started with 100 grit. Tried priming it today outside but it was too cold outside.
