Will be on vacation from my job until the 20th of this month, so if you want something done, this is the time.

Not really, i've been collecting some stuff that i needed.

Electric gas valve
SSR
thermocouple
pid-temp controller
rock wool insulation
hinges
latches
door seal, with adhesive cement

really all i need is some damn sheet metal, a local metal place wants $42 bucks for 22gauge galvanized 5x10 sheets. And i need 10 sheets.


So i need some more cash flow

Got done cleaning up someone else's mess today

Who plugs the bleed valve for the upper radiator hose?


And the owner of the car said he took it to midas to get one of the rear shock mounts installed, and they put it upside down? WTF

Getting really frustrated with that, but I definitely won't be ready this coming week. I will most likely be getting my sheet metal Monday, and then let the build continue.

Worked on a friends car today. E39 wagon. Again, not many pics while we were working.

Replaced front windshield seal

Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

rear hatch struts and glass shocks



And lastly, replaced the vanos seals.








This is what he paid me with, He had some parts laying around so he threw this together for me.



It still needs some things, but should be ready to ride by tonight.

Had a good time hanging out with him and getting some things done.
