I started doing this on January 1st. It's running and driving and the only thing that needs attention is the oil drain is leaking, and tires need balanced. I have not even cleaned the inside of the car or done anything cosmetic to it yet. I'm just enjoying boosting in it! The car had been sitting for several years before I snagged it up.

Looking great. What did you clean the transmission with?

I used mineral spirits, nylon brushes, and rags.
