  2. Finally got the crush washers after they got lost in shipping twice. I went to torque the oil rail down and the online specs said 11-13NM. I set my torque wrench to 11.5 but man that felt too tight so I went by feel. I know that rail is delicate, and the crush washers formed to the tube like they were before, so I am not worried about getting it any tighter. I also used some loctite as recommended so they wont back out. I bolted everything back together and it looks a ton better with everything freshly painted. I also got a new roundel for up front and this afternoon I am meeting a guy with new headlights, grills, kidneys, side markers, gaskets, and hardware. I was really hoping he had a valance but he said he just sold his along with front and rear euro bumpers. DRATS!!
  3. Pintle caps, orings, and filters came for the injectors. Didnt get around to cleaning, and testing the injectors though. What I did do, is remove the throttlebody and spacer and strip the manifold for paint. I only took two pictures as I spend the rest of the time beating the shit out of the TB with a dead blow to get it off. I have never has such a hard time removing a TB in my life. I also installed the valve covers and gaskets along with the coolant pipe for the heater core. This resulted in me doing some research about coolant flow and early E36 heater cores because I currently am not getting heat in the cabin. I found my problem as the water pump lines were looped and I just reinstalled them that way when I did the h2o pump when I got the car. I highlighted what they should be:

  8. I literally just died laughing. Once hes gone, put a plastic owl in there. I hear they scare away ferrets. Or was it pigeons? Either way, worth a shot.

  11. a penny for your thoughts? https://www.copart.com/lot/36279447
  12. Ehh I think that price is somewhat high as well. But like Earl said, its not a common vehicle so the right buyer is out there somewhere.
  13. I know, its just hard to justify when I paid almost the same amount for the entire car... Hmmmm, I guess I really didnt look at it like that because the anodizing/ paint that use to be there was flaking all over the engine bay lol.
