Front portion of the cage in self etching primer, time to move to the rear. Had the windshield pulled yesterday to allow better coverage on the front bars.

Just checking in, This winter I changed out my rear axle with a Moser unit with 3.70:1 gears, aluminum center section and disc brakes. It matches well with the T5.  
My image hosting on Photobucket broke, so posting pictures is a pain on this site undecided.
However the folks at car craft took this picture at the car craft nationals on the Autocross.  Grin

If I were buying a machine a switch to 4 speed would add value, but personally I would never build a car based on optimizing it's value.  Unless you plan on selling it as soon as your done, from what I understand you have owned this car for a long time, if you plan on keeping it, build what you want.  No-brainer.  Andy

I would leave it as an automatic. Keep the full value of the car and possibly save yourself enough money and time that you could buy something else with a manual shifter for rowing fun.

You may need to cut the trans tunnel. Not irreversable but something to consider if you ever try to go back.

Do you still have the car? I'd love to have the rubber bumperettes off the front bumper!
