Did my transmission filter/fluid change last night. I was honestly surprised to see how clean the pan was. The fluid was still red, but had a darker color to it, and I wasn't sure if it had ever been changed in the last 10 years so I went ahead and changed it for preventative maintenance. There was shavings on the magnet, but not much sediment in the pan which I figured was good as I didn't have any issues with shifting or TCC lock. I also went ahead and put Valvoline Maxlife synthetic ATF in since it was a $4 difference. It took a little over 6 quarts of ATF for the pan drop and filter change. After it was done I immediately could tell the difference in shift quality on the first drive. Easy job, a little messy, but worth the time.a5a5e46ecd5294ec56f329dbd88b537e.jpg268833ce85c64b0fa02cb186233a51b9.jpged2eb5bea45935cf7097ece25f40af69.jpg0613e4c0a699d8bf25363886cd29c7b5.jpg

As requested, first picture of my index finger pointing to the track is where the window/guide came out. Second is the moulding I replaced. 94f30b82c31b9c91e6e4e4a1159eab40.jpgf5c70169240cd66b5478d769b843e63e.jpg

I was also just working in that area. I found the upper door panel had pulled away from the metal channel at the top from sun exposure and age, and wouldn't stay in place. I bent the black metal channel, by hand, on the door inward about 3/8 of an inch along the whole length, and the top of the door panel held much better in it's proper place. Just FYI.

Posting a little update. I've had the car driving since August roughly. So far I've put 6k miles on it since I completed my overhaul. The only thing that went wrong was the new radiator cap I purchased from rockauto. The seal was bad and would leak from it, however that has since been fixed. The car will be hitting its 100k milestone today!! Excited to see it!
My plans for 2019 include the following.
1.) Get the mufflers and tips replaced.
2.) Address the fading trim around the convertible top, and the lip spoiler.
3.) Find a nice set of Bonneville GXP wheels for the ole girl.
4.) Clean up the underside of the car and rust proof with light suspension restoration.
5.) Replace the bad interior trim pieces.
6.) Overhaul the sound system. ad438b797f878c0704820ee582cb5756.jpg22b5d4a50582ad155caaee565d1b8418.jpgc5e0b00f51beb892518e75783b75489f.jpg

Looking good! You do as many miles in 4 months as I do in a year, unless you meant 600 miles. 
I did mean 6,000 lol. I was just making up for the year of working on it and not being able to drive it. I plan on keeping the mileage to 5000 a year, especially if I register as a classic in 2019.
