Today the Getrag 245 5-speed for my 2002 Touring Project arrived.

Seems in decent shape visually as far as I can tell anyway, will have it checked by an expert-friend before mounting it though.

As far as the engine is concerned: I decided to either mount a complete Tii-engine with Kügelfischer injection or rebuild the current engine to one (seem not to be that different if I'm not mistaken), so plenty of (re-)search to be done. I also have to find a prop-shaft that fits.


The body itself will be sandblasted next week, keep you posted.
