It never looked hard, just a PITA without a lift and tranny jacks etc. Which the shop all has.

July 5th is the planned date if I get leave that day (I might just take it if we don't get it given to us with these plans now).

Planning on the Scott's Center annex near NNSY. Its only a few miles away from me, small, and quiet for the most part.

As soon as I get over to the lady's mom's house to do a proper wash/detail/wax, and fix that siezed caliper, I will at least roll them up to it. Dunno if I'll go full mount.

looking at the caliper tomorrow, the pins were not the only issue... I'm gonna see if the piston just need some persuading tomorrow. If I cant free it looks like I'm looking at replacing it with one for Al Rudd I guess

Hey robb, its a Bummer, I'll be heading back to CT on the 3rd so I won't be here for your clutch swap. It woulda been sweet to do, so i could have gotten a refresh on the swap for my 3 series since I'm gonna be swapping out my transmission, clutch, flywheel and short shifter shortly after I get back home to have her completely ready and in time for bimmerfest. Last time I did a clutch was about 5 years ago. It's really not that hard, just time consuming and obviously a helping hand it always better.
