Oil pan bolted in place and torqued to 10lbs./ft (14 Nm). To place the windage tray is easiest done by doing the oil pan pickup tube and gasket last. Hang Pan gasket in place with bolts hand threaded on opposite sides of gasket. Install Oil pickup tube and new gasket through hole in tray. Remove hand trhead pan bolts and gasket will hang from oil pickup. Slide pan in place while aligning gasket and bolt it up.

Found a few missing body clips while I was under the car so I'm going to replace them. Gave the chassis a few shot of grease, and next it 3 stage wash n wax for the spring. Will be back on the road at the end of the month after last winters storage. If I find any other issues along the way I'll address them as well. Over all though everything seemed tight. happy Oh and thanks Robo.
