Synchros are going out, or you need some anti friction additive. Did you change the oil recently, say 5k ago?

Has the tranny fluid ever been changed? If not drain it and refill with 3.0 L (3.2 qts). This is less than what the owner's manuals says, but exactly what this TSB says.

I had been running RP Synchromax, however have found Mobil 1 ATF to be much smoother. Do not load any additives, Tremec is quite explicit that they should not be used, this is from the TR-3650 service manual:

Yeah if the lube change doesn't work also check the clutch slave cylinder that can be going out as well. I hope its not syncros that could be expensive.

Nice picture. I think I have a squeak around the clutch release lever. Originally thought it was the quadrant but the noise was comin from underneath. Happens usually when I slowly release the clutch pedal. Havent had a chance to pull the dust cover off and check.
