    Drive-by-wire has evolved from this, let's just say. If you wanted the real retro experience, you could have put in a rods and ball-joints setup.

    coming from the corner of the pan, between the pan and the gasket, not above the gasket (between block and gasket) but under it, the area of the block/timing cover/pan where most leaks happen is bone dry.
    almost seems like it's coming from around a pan bolt head...weird.

    That is weird. Maybe the gasket on the inside of the bolt is cracked or pinched and squeezing toward the inside.

    Good news is. you can pull the pan in the car in about 30 minutes, if needed.

    Wired the dash for installation, also the very important "for the one I always forget circuit"
    The fuse panel is plastic and secured to the back of the dash with 3M structural adhesive to simplify things.
    all the connections are soldered because I hate crimps

    Nice! I love doing old school wiring like that. One of the most satisfying jobs I ever did was re-wiring a 36 foot sailboat electrical system and load panel.... Not so much with modern cars, that's a snake pit I stay away from.
