      Wardie, Schnitz, Austin, and Corey (I think..) came out and helped me get my transmission back on my engine under the car after having to tear it all apart to switch out a Throw Out Bearing. I'll never forget how quick and willing they were to help. This was years ago but still worth mentioning!

      Thumbs up.

      Ryan, did you get that PPI done? You should msg me, we're back at work tomorrow and I may be able to run you through the shop.

            I hope you feel better man!
            Thanks! I do feel quite a bit better than when I arrived at the ER, but still not that awesome. Have a hell of a sore throat from the anesthesia tubes and still can't really flex my stomach, but that's better than the killer side ache that I had!

                so now that I work at Uhaul... I discovered the moving pads/blankets we have work perfect as ground tarps/covers when wrenching! they absorb oil good too!

                woke up at 0830 today to start working on the 5er, got the rear bilsteins/hrs in and the 3.25 lsd. Cleaned all the parts too, like always :) front suspension I am starting after this break.

                alas though... the rear diff bolt was seized and actually snapped when I tried loosening it with brute force. off to the p'n'p in the AM so I can drive by afternoon!

                hope everybody's elses projects went smooth this beautiful weekend!

                  Got my DIY euro trim done on front, went super smooth, move to back, take bumper off, push one of the clips out to get the back bumper strip off, and it cracks. I didnt even pull on it, just shattered when i pushed the little clip out...

                  Also about ready to toss these morimotos and put stock back in, replacement bulbs I got back had one cracked base. so much for the QC sticker.

                        These guys are super nice, they inspected the e46 I was looking at for FREE and they only had good things to say, so I picked it up yesterday :)

                              That's damn frustrating!

                                I feel silly doing it since even the broken morimotos have more output then the stock lenses, but the stock ones just bolt in and work, adjust, etc. These morimotos have been endless nitpicking for me.
