something broke in the clutch assembly and sent a nice chunk of metal bashing around the bell housing, not good. Engine and transmission need to come out now

Jealous?

I guess your precious Leica can only do ISO 400.

Let's try ISO 3200.

Hand held at 10 p.m. 1/25 sec., f 1.2, 85mm.

Second one is 1/15th F2.1 @ ISO 100

Close. 360.

Great pics guys. Morgan, if you need a hand, I would gladly come help. That looks easier to work on then even my Elise with the clam off.
