Got a little jump start on things tonight getting the garage cleaned up. Drained all the oil out of the engine (changed 3-4K miles ago based on the windshield sticker) and it was murky. Definitively the smallest amount of coolant in the oil suggesting that the headgasket is weeping (among every other seal on the engine..) I have a guy coming over on Monday to replace the cracked windshield so the car needs to be spun around anyway prior to him arriving. I think this is the weekend plan as it sits.
-passenger door panel
-add oil (this is more a reminder to myself)
-reassemble the old brakes and get car "road worthy" to get it to the self service car wash up the road for pressure washing the engine bay off of the sludge.
-drain oil and remove pan to replace pan gasket and completely degrease the pan
-find a shop locally to discharge the a/c system legally
-seafoam (this might be a mistake honestly)
-front end suspension and bushings
-If the honda brake carrier bolts i ordered arrive in time, Do complete brakes (pads, rotors, fluid)
- triple check all bolts, fender liners, etc.
- De-bro smell the interior (smells like cotton candy vape, Roaches and swishers)
- remove any loose items from the car and do a test run to validate nothing sounds like it's falling apart.
I'll probably spend some time working on this thing as well this weekend. It's a 71 Volkswagen Fastback (type 3) that has seen some better days. Received it on a trade for an electric guitar about a year ago and decided to restore it.
