Tried taking the clutch off with the bearing in the correct orientation and the SAC mechanism reset, but it just did the same thing after testing a few presses of the pedal. Good thing we decided to test with a minimal amount of parts reattached.
Took it apart again pretty quickly and after some deduction, swapped the pressure plate out with another one. It worked.
Need to put it all back together tomorrow morning.

Sorry, I don't have enough spare money to spend a couple thousand in lenses, and I don't carry around a tripod at all times.

And OMG, Kalim's cars were so much fail this weekend.

-Friday night on the way to dinner, the pressure plate assembly fails on his E46 M3. With the clutch unable to disengage, it is not possible to shift and the car is immobilized.
-Saturday night after dinner, his E30 325i battery/jumpstarter decides to call it quits in the parking. End up looking like idiots push starting the car in the parking lot.

You don't need fancy equipment. All you need is a steady hand. The UE Virus cannot be caused by any piece of technology.

Kalim's car needs a new interior. I can see the mediocrity through the glass.

Could have really used a hand today.
I knew it was a bad idea to pull section 3 of the exhaust. That beast wouldn't go back in. Had to put the car away without it.
Still haven't started on Joseph's car.

On the bright side, the clutch is back to working normally.

ISO was at 1600, lens was at its most open aperture and shortest focal distance. My camera and lens aren't new enough to have vibration reduction features. How else can I make the images less blurry when I'm in the dark?

I think he should keep the tan interior, but go to Recaro Sportsters and heavily bolstered rear seats with no middle seat, all in OEM leather.

Nothing swaps from the coupe to a sedan. The seats can fit, but then you have seats with tilt handles.

I would have liked to help some more

But I needed to spend at least some time this weekend relaxing, and I was getting progressively dirtier and hungrier as the weekend was going on.

Yeah, no worries. Looks like I'm going to be driving the E30 for a couple of days.

Also, Joseph's car has a bad fuel pump, so I'm going to try and get that changed tonight so it at least runs.

I also have a few other miscellaneous E30 parts from my personal car that I can throw in for free if you are interested.
inb4 random parts are a bag of nuts and bolts, yet even that is surprising. I'm not sure I like this new, non-Jew, Miles.
