    I have seen E30s with a gentle rake... and I like it
    I did it on another r3v'ers car and it wasn't bad. With the right tools its maybe an afternoon job.

        Ill wait to see what iPad 3 comes out with before changing.
        I was using a Galaxy Tab from my wife's work for a while, and I liked it. Now I have a Nook Color running CM7, and it's not bad. For the price, it's done everything I need it too, and the touch screen is comparable to the iPad's/Galaxy. Plus, the Nook seems a bit more "rugged" then some of the other tablets I have played with.

          Not worth it to me IMO. If your car is stock height, just rock
          It until your fully ready to lower the car.

          It's a waste of time to remove your suspension twice, especially for a minimal drop (if not less).

          Just drive your car dude. Leave the modding to us ;p

          Jk! But really....

                  Listen to your elders 5toes. We aren't giving you a hard time because we enjoy it (maybe Austin, ryann, kid325e, gregolas, BMWm42, iron joe, AbeSonic, and the entire r3v community, including myself). We do it because we have been down that road where a car royally fcuks you in the ass because of childish decisions and poorly executed planning.

                  Your car looks clean. Keep it that way. Or sell it to me. And I'll sell it back to you when your ready to own Gods chariot.

                    Exactly your immaturity toes and lack of wanting to do shit right the first time. Your ignorance to your elders knowledge and your disregard to it further deems you unworthy of gods chariot. So listen the fuck up to our knowledge do shit and our respect will follow.

                      Yup we all did dumb stuff to our cars when we were younger. Deep down we're just trying to prevent you from making our mistakes. Like, refreshing only one side of your front suspension for example - you always want to do jobs like this in pairs.

                            Yeah, it was a lot of work on the SP units, I had take them out of the box myself!

                            But seriously, the hobby is a lot of fun. The high short hood on [some] SD units always struck me as a very interesting deviation from the rest of the industry.

That hard line goes down past the steering Guibo to a tab welded to the body. That is where the soft clutch slave line attachs and then goes I the slave. There is a hole in the crank where the pilot bearing is pressed in. It is located where the center of the flywheel is. If you google pilot bearing install it will give you an idea. It is pretty much the same.
                              Yeah I'll look for the install to get a better idea, but I've seen the hole you're talking about when I changed the Rear Crank Seal. The tab that was welded has been severely cut by the PO so I have to think of another way to attach it to the body of the car for now. I'm just surprised I could find a small install for the Pilot bearing in Bentley.

                              Body is straight, but boy does he need a new paint job come Spring. Trying to think if I should do Roller paint, or just do the Maaco route for now. Is there a sign-up for this meet?

                              For the love of all that is holy, do it right & stop the headaches, unless you like going through them. Hell, I'm elder to some & I still listen.

                                Just rock it as is. If you really wanna paint it on the cheap, I suggest painting it with John Deere tractor paint. Sounds kinda crazy, but it's super durable and long lasting.
