Note what is in this place when you're caught up in this chase
Since I know I'm highly unlikely to use the original distributor again, I decided to sell my last NOS ZV/JCU 4R3 distributor and spares. I posted it up on Facebook groups and TheSamba.com. To my surprise, it sold about 3 hours later to a guy who owns some very nice cars - I'm happy that it's going to a great home. Selling this distributor pays for the carpet kit that I have on order.
Yeah, the rubber mat that came in my car originally is drying out and cracking/falling apart. It's only a matter of time before there's nothing left of the rubber mat, unfortunately. I do appreciate that it'll be a bit quieter in the car with the carpet and the sound deadening that I recently bought. There's a very slow crawl to a complete car - one or two parts at a time.
I also found another source for the Boge steering dampers so I bought two more.
The driver's side mirror that I bought was shipped to the wrong address - the seller responded today telling me that they are shipping a replacement. Sucks that it got lost but maybe they'll get lucky and it'll get returned to them once the recipient realizes it's not addressed to them.
