I used the heim link clutch cable and it 'hangs' on something in the tunnel so I pulled the whole thing with the intent of replacing the heim link system with another clutch cable lever that shouldn't hang up on anything in the tunnel.
Now I just have to find enough time to get all of these 'little' tasks done...

I was able to finally get to the hose shop and collect the completed hoses for the brakes - although I have yet to have the time to get it all put back together. Something about all of the other stuff going on that's kept me from getting back to the car.
The only thing holding me back now is having the time to get it all installed and get the lines bled properly...I might wind up doing it a little at a time until it's done.

NOS Hella 3 bolt headlamps with city lights. Negotiated a good price for fast payment.
I was able to negotiate a good price for buying more than one item.
I may drop this one in the Variant and reserve the NOS unit for the restoration debut.
Since I sold my NOS red/white lenses last week - these will replace them. I may sell the lenses since I prefer clear or yellow for turn indicators. The red/white version is a parking light.
For the purpose of documenting stasis: I went to the hose shop last Friday and waited for 20 minutes only to learn that they'd run out of the more standard fitting for the brakes. They had to be ordered and I should be able to pick them up tomorrow...which is good because I've got a friend coming over on Sunday to work on the car.
