Nothing new in the new parts department, got some more displays and arduinos in the mail and am working on getting them installed.

Went on a short roadtrip though, her first real trip since the rebuild and the first interstate drive in Germany. The new tranny and axle was a great idea. Around 500 miles and nothing bad happened, except for the rear being misted with oil... The cam cover was leaking a bit so I reinstalled the gasket with high temp silicone. Now it's good and dry and should hold for a while. Also did the second oil change since the rebuild. No metal flakes, just smelled like fuel from running rich for that little while. Was to be expected.

But it's a great daily driver, very pleased with the results. Surprisingly quick to steer, no clunking, chatter or sqeaking going down the road and the motor always has instant power in reserve.

So now I can say stage 0 complete!
