. What do you think about sealing it with RTV?
You really need to slow down, you are making a lot of us (me) look really bad!
Car is going to be better than new when you finish it!
looks good (I crushed cars with a lot LESS rust)
btw instead of grease use wet bread next time in the pilot bearing - less messy
IMO I only use RTV if the sealing surface is badly pitted or not properly cleaned (with alcohol to remove all oil). We use it to seal transfer cases at my work and it works very well. The problem is that most people put to much of the stuff on and when the sealing surface sandwiches together it squeezes the excess into the the t-case which can create problems down the road. It really a matter of preference. I did use it to seal the oil pan, front/rear crank seal housing and the thermostat. On my M46 I was able to get the bell housing gasket surface very clean as so I didn't use it + I didn't want to run the risk that some small particulate breaks loose and clogs up the OD hydraulics.
Your progress is looking great. The braided k-jet fuel lines are high on my list of purchases to be made. It's nice seeing someone else interested in keeping the original fuel system alive.
"Intercooler harness" ?
Incredible turn around time! The paint looks really nice!
