Began the slushbox to ZHP manual conversion today. I have the new pedal assembly in and all of the plumbing done for the master cylinder. Also removed the exhaust flange nuts and all of the exhaust hanger related goodies just short of dropping the exhaust.

Tomorrow I will remove the exhaust, remove all the heat sheilding, drop the slushbox, remove the driveline, install a JB Racing Lightweight Flywheel, UUC Performance Organic sprung hub clutch, the ZHP manual, BMW Performance shift kit, install the driveline, bleed the slave cylinder, and wire all the switch assemblies.

It will drift over to Monday if I don't finish it all tomorrow.

Just ordered H&R Sport Springs to replace my Eibach Pro-Kit because it didn't lower it enough. I have new spring pads for the rear, new bumper clips (one of mine broke), and spacers on my back porch that will be installed when I get home tomorrow (as long as no one steals them off my deck ).

Recharged A/C on 7/01.
Washed it on 7/02.
did it before the monsoon season starts.
It might be the last time it will get washed in a while do to the fact that if it doesn't rain, the dust storm will get it dirty. a/c got recharged for the damn humid weather after the rains.
Much more to come.

No offense to some members on the group but there are dudes making less than $35K driving in fairly new cars - lol like leasing a $40k car - wtf - the car is worth more than what you make in a year!

OP just be sensible - good luck!

put water in radiator. Almost 1.5 Liter of distilled water. I probably would have to check the car if it has some leaks. I never actually put water on it since I bought it about a month and a half ago.

Matte black grilles and Glossy black shadow badge. B&W roundels, Angel Eyes and HID fogs coming soon.

Any ideas on how to bring the black mesh in the front bumper to life? Grilles look so crisp. Mesh needs help.
