    good info on the headers and TOB forget the lift point, just throw the chains around the spider hose, they are super strong and never break.

    that see-saw lift does look like a terrible idea. and i don't think many cars would have suitable lift points right in the center of the rocker panels. my neighbor installed a lift in his garage that only lets him lift his car about 40" off the ground. he's old though so its mostly to save the body from strain.

    he doesnt explain how to fold a hard shell, though.

    i get this sad feeling that when a car gets rolled to the back of a deep, dark storage container it will probably never come back out. RIP. and yes, your ramp was sketch as hell lol
  5. i also made a 'negative pressure paint booth' with a box fan inside a small room. it does not keep the paint off of surfaces as well as you think it might. it does help keep the cloud of paint from being super obnoxious and helps with exhausting the fumes. you should still be prepared to cover things you don't want to get speckled. i also deployed that 2k clear for painting a bicycle frame once. the extra nastiness of the paint wasnt worth the hassle for the finish it created. i wouldnt use it again. YMMV

    Synchromax MTF here i am quoting myself on the issues it caused: I switched to Redline D4 ATF and all the issues went away.

    Welp, some I can rent from the Autogoons and the rest I ordered.
  11. Anyone have an e30 rear wheel bearing tool I could rent/borrow? I thought my bearing would last till winter project season, but it hasn't, so I need to get this done ASAP. Thanks!

    The One That Didn't Get Away [100K Mile E30 325is]

    you can use a full piece of painters tape, but you'll have to do two passes. tape to the top of the stripe and only cut above it. remove the tape. tape to the bottom edge of the stripe and cut below it.

    +1. royal purple and my zf310 did not match well. it felt like shifting through peanut butter - particularly worse in cold weather.
