Bow seems to be very close to same curve as windshield frame.
But
Dang roll bar interfers with dropping the frame all the way down. I guess solution will be to undo the nuts holding the soft top to the car when top is down...and not be in a panic when ptutting the top up.

There should be a "2000" badge and a "Datsun" badge below it to the left of the plate. Nothing below the plate, except a light on the rear bumper.
Ignore the "redesigned license plate insert" as I believe it's just identifying how the metal was stamped compared to the earlier models.

Thanks Greg ... there are a few other items on the list, but I can add it to the wish list.

Yup ... semi-stranded with the tranny popping out of second all by itself. (More details on ... "Has your stock roadster ever left you stranded" thread)

Ross, thank your bride for taking my call on a Sunday and allowing you to confirm the best course of action was a tow home.

Unfortunatley, my mechanic is away for the next week, and he stays way far away from transmission work...but he had a couple of suggestions, so I'll get on it Monday. Diagnostics suggested is to drain the tranny oil & check for metal bits. I'll probably do that myself tomorrow ... then I'll know better where to take the car next. Pretty bummed out ... but as I said to my wife...the car is almost as old as I am, and I know what kind of shape I'm in ... so this kind of thing can't surprise me. If I'm going to go out and play, there may be injuries.
