Whew, this list has been slow.  However, work has continued on my car
whenever possible and I think the car will be driving under its own power
sometime in May.  Probably the most interesting thing that we have been
doing is fitting a huge Mercedes oil cooler to the car in the deleted aux
radiator location.  This oil cooler is the same or similar to Javad's
(http://www.80tq.com/cooling.html).  Mine came from an old Mercedes SLC.
I'll take photos this weekend after the install is finished.

This is only the critical list of things to get the car in basic working
order.  It doesn't include future modifications or even things that I
consider important (like replacing my blown shocks).  It's mostly just what
we need to get the car going.  We have probably overlooked some things
(hmmm, I don't see "fab heat shield for intake" on there anywhere), but this
is what we are working from.
