Week 40: (July 5th 1999):
I do not have any photographs this week, sorry. Anyhow, I noticed some gear grease on the floor underneath the rear differential this weekend as I was checking under the car. The front pinion seal needs to be replaced. Damn! Why didn't I do this when the differential was out of the car? Now it's all installed with the propeller shaft bolted up to it.. Crap... Anyhow, I ordered a new pinion seal and unbolted the propeller shaft, followed the instructions in the Bentley manual and replaced the seal. It is not leaking anymore! This week I also had the windscreen professionally installed by the local speedy auto glass place. They did quite a good job! Other little tidbits were done like the sun visors, side view and rear view mirrors. Another exciting thing happened and that is I drove the car for the first time. Oh, this is going to be a lot of fun when it's finished :). However, The gas tank that is installed currently (the second one I have put in I might add) has a leak around the seam where the float sensor is installed. I have taken my spare fuel tank down to a local business that also refurbished my radiator. I hope I can get the refurbished tank next week so I can install it. Other things planned for next week include getting new tires installed and having the front end aligned.
