Fuck, I love this car. I don't care what other people think. Im well aware of the vast amount of work it needs. I'll do what I can when I can and just keep loving it.

Thinking about tearing into my B today to change my shifter bushing. Anyone got any advice?

Pretty straight forward. Only tool needed is a pick or flat screwdriver to get the E-clip off and back on. You'll love the way it shifts with new bushings.

I take a lot of pride in the fact that I've kept my B as stock as possible. When i say stock I mean replaced parts are remanufactured or on the rare occasion a new factory part. If that makes sense...
