I love following builds like this, keep it up! Projects always take longer than expected. I've been working on mine for 6 years and I haven't completed much of the big ticket items yet...

I agree, the good thing is that you're making process and still dreaming! Some of us are stuck in the still dreaming phase!

So I've had a bit of a major set back. As a few of you may know my headgasket decided to let go, which was kinda frustrating. As a "while I was in there" I wanted to take off the timing case cover and have a look see as I've been having some interesting chain noise as of late. This is what I found. It took out the guides and a couple teeth on the main crank sprocket. As a result the engine is going to be yanked out and completely rebuilt. :/

Brightside it will be going to paint finally with the newly mounted MT-2 kit while the engine is being rebuilt.

Just like humans, you can live without a few teeth...

Well that's some stuff to find a car that was still running! Glad to see it didn't eat itself and you're gonna rebuild it :D Let me know how it goes as I'm considering redoing the seals in my M42 as well : )

Well I went back and forth a little, but it will be painted Alpine white II as it was from the factory.
