    But how to get it to Seattle?

    I dont know what we are doing wrong. Our loss is your gain guys. Basically all you have to do is show up and do the work. We have the tools. Who doesnt want $100?

      Are you using a ton of silicone or something? Put the gasket on dry.

        nothing agressive using ground control 375 450 rears if i remember correctly. comfortable for daily driving, and not to stiff i dont really want to break my oil pan. im also going to in the near future going to try to custom make my own skid plate to be tough as fuck, bc roads around here are rough as fuck.

          Almost

          I can almost guarantee you will get at least ten e30 guys line up to your door step to do the work if you told r3v that a hot girl own the car, a picture of her and the said car would definitely bump the chance exponentially.

            Awesome, sounds like a nice setup. Also, beefy-ass custom skid plates FTW.

                Huge thanks to Stephen for the excellent work on the 318's paint. Ended up coming out quite nicely, for how haggard it started.

                    Sadly it is not a cute girl who drives this.

                    We put a little bit of silicon on to hold the gasket. Basically we just give up, and want to pay somebody else to do it. We would drive it to your shop, but it is undrivable

                        Doing the water pump alone without the timing belt is a pain in the a.. I've done it. The little spring is a B. Basically you shouldn't be using silicone. You need to put the gasket and pump on with the bolt closest to the spring slightly threaded in. Then spin the pump and wedge the spring in. Then get the other bolt in. Get a mirror and see where its leaking. Im betting its behind the tensioner. Everyone is telling you about the belt because its true. Its only designed to be tensioned once. If you already took the tensioner off, just remove the belt and do the pump. Then replace with a new belt.

                          We ziptied the spring last time, and then cut them. It made that part pretty easy.

                          We are aware about the belt, but plenty of members here have had no problems.

                            No, don't do this. That place is terrible.
