@bwp240 The pan might have "dimples" around the screw holes that would need to be hammered back the other way with a ball peen hammer. They get there by the screws being over torqued and keep the rest of the pan from sealing since they stick down where they should be flat.
@pip-bip I actually love this car he's got a top for it too! It doesn't look quite as classy as an actual convertible but I love the whole vibe. Technically BMW didn't make a convertible either. I think Baur did them all back then.
@nerd_racing gentle reminder, let me know what you want the next auction to be and your guess. I'll get it posted up. I know life gets in the way so I'll open it up to the heathens to pick the next one if I don't hear from you.
