Re: 8BA Front Seal Oil Leak

Thanks JWL,
If I leave as is will the oil leak become worse or just be a drip . It seems to only start leaking after the engine has been stopped for 10 minutes.

Re: Need pics of door window trim panels '35 or '36

I agree with Gary that where the clips go is stamped into the trim.

I also used the Hood Stainless side trim clips. They appear to be the same.
