On the right is the pan boot that's typically sold 'to fit a Type 3'. It doesn't fit the early car without severe modification.
When I get in to reindex the rear torsions, I'm going to swap out the hacked up Type 1 pan boot with the NOS piece with cracking - just to see how it fits.
Admittedly, the progress is not impressive...but I'm finding that my desire to work on the car is at what I'd describe as an 'all time low'. I'm on 'auto pilot' right now because the car has to be running/driving by the time we move back to Illinois. If that deadline wasn't looming out there - I would just let the car sit because I have very little interest in it right now.
