    Edit: Anyone have suggestions on what to do to prep my car for sitting for the next 9 months? besides draining the fluids? I just did a fresh oil change yesterday. Or maybe I can just do the job over thanksgiving break.
    Use the opportunity to change all the fluids and then get a good trickle charger.

      Me too! It's been awhile since I did anything E30 related that wasn't maintenance.

        There's something about tidying up wiring that I hate, but also love very much because you can instantly see the results..

          Cleaning up wiring is so rewarding when finished. That reminds me, I need to put my harness covers back on.

                And I love wiring, Ive rewired my PC at least 3 times to get the best routes for that nice look.

                E30 Ill do when/if I Swap super tidy so you cant see it, maybe route as much as I can in the intake covers etc.

                      Hey all, shameless self promotion, put my house up for sale yesterday, I think that the realtors are taking offers in a little under a week. If you know anyone who is house shopping, 3br house with 2br mother-in-law in the basement, garage, instant hot water, 90% efficient furnace, tons of street parking, decks on 3 sides, and a patio. If you know anyone who is thinking of shopping around, please pass it on.

                      Also, last call for anyone who wants to part out the coupe or I'm taking what I know is valuable from it and it'll go to the crusher. I can't really part it out where it sits since it's at the shop, so if it's left to me it will pretty much lose the stereo, seats, and then will be sent to the great crusher in the sky. Or wherever. :(

                          Good luck on the house sale Joel, it was fun while it lasted!...

                          Also, how has NOBODY picked up the old shell? Im talking about you Austin!!!
                          Seems like they could picked it clean by now and easily turned a profit before scrapping one that actually deserved to be scrapped

                            I keep getting people asking me for single parts off of it, nobody wants to make some money with the bones, it seems.

                              IMHO there's not much left to part from that shell. but regardless, PM inbound

                                Soooo random favor to ask someone local to the Bellevue/Redmond/Seattle area. I have some seats that I'm buying from another forum member and it turns out UPS wants nothing to do with bringing them to my condo. Is anyone willing to receive a couple of large boxes somewhere on ground level? I'd be happy to reimburse with cash or libations for your trouble.
