    Not enough typing space
    Did more contemplating about the mystery knock in the back of the daily driver.
    It's not the parcel shelf or any of the tools/ spare tyre I'm pulling interior panels next!

    More paint? It looked fine at the V@V.

    I have been enjoying my new clutch and SSK after about 1 month on jack stands.

    More of the same: Replaced valve cover gasket, cleaned top of valve cover off (oil, dust, and some 16-year-old cosmoline). Changed spark plugs...old plugs were overall good, but #3 had oil blowing past the crush washer, so it hadn't been torqued correctly. Electrodes were good, though.

    Made sure the tires were correctly filled. And retorqued the bolts.

    Took her for a spin. A long one.

    Anything counts, as long as it's got something to do with your E30.

    Lewd looks certainly count.

    Well it took a little more then one day, but did a repaint of upper/lower intake and valve cover on the M42....
    While I had it all apart, replaced all the coolant and vac hose as well as the heater plate delete on the TB.

    Took down the driveshaft and exhaust to change out the output shaft seal and the shift seal, but my socket didn't work... BUT I ordered the right part today. Oh yeah, CD player keep skipping and destroyed my favorite The Police CD, so......

    I lined up my flathead screwdriver and drove it through the cd player with my biggest hammer.

    My new CD player works awesome.

    Drove to work, top down. Only really notable because after replacing the spark plugs and rotating the tires, it's *so* much smoother. I don't know which of those is responsible, but today was a day I have to say I love my E30.

    I haven't driven my Jetta wagon in at least two weeks now.

    1 dead e30 :(
    she is currently sitting in the garage since my rack took a shit on me, but I bought an LSD for it yesterday, I have an e36 rack on the way, new oil pan gasket and PS reservoir sitting at home along with new rotors, pads, and wires all the way around. All of this is waiting to go in this weekend (well, except for the LSD. Probably going to reseal it before putting it in).

    Next up will be timing belt when she finally turns 200K and I get another paycheck or two (currently at a little over 199K) .

    Well, TODAY I drove it to work. Last night I washed it for the first time in 2 months lol. Vacuuming also occurred. The car will be seeing some changes in the very near future though. 13 button OBC, reaplcing door seals and a messed up A-piller trim piece, Euro bumper trim, new side trim, electric sun roof, cruise control (big project w/ write-up), and the installation of the full over-head check panel*.

    *Tricky. Very tricky. Never been done AFAIK. Patience, good note-taking & pictures and relatively non-invasive splicing will take care of it.

    Just FYI, if you have an airbag-equipped car, you won't need to modify the steering knuckle to fir the E36 rack like some write-up's say. You will just need to grind a little bit of the firewall.

    thanks for the heads up, but I have been doing extensive reading on the topic and I have to do some knuckle modification. After all, I have the best year for e30s 1989 was just in time for the plastic bumpers, and just early enough to miss the airbags. Now lets hope I can get this in without too many problems. I have been waiting on parts for 2 weeks

    I vacuumed the interior, and I cleaned my basketweaves.
    Ordered some parts: leather boot, msport knob, new e-break fitting. Broke the faceplate to my CD player too, so I've got some awesome orange masking tape holding it on!

    Speed bleeder, Stainless Steel brake hoses, Catch can, and maybe a car wash to top it all off.
