    should be several factors greater than needed for a car. probably not going to support the point load of a floor jack castor, but i think that is the case for any type of plastic modular flooring. did you get any ramp edge pieces?

    easily one of the worst jobs on an e30 due to the contortionist act.

    to some extent, but i think the filler neck has a built-in vent for filling, due to the rate at which air has to escape. the vent line works both ways for pressure relief. as fuel is drawn out by the pump, air also needs to get back into the tank otherwise you create a vacuum and make the car's fuel pump work harder than it has to. also, fuel expands with heat so the pressure has to get out as it expands. someone plugged the vent line in the engine bay on my e30. when I'd pop the filler cap to fill the tank, the seal would pop then hiss as air rushed into the tank because of the vaccuum. there should be no fuel in the vent line.

    that's a cool bit of programming, but lets not encourage auto manufacturers to venture down that rabbit hole. can you imagine 100 cars ahead of you in rush hour traffic with fricken strobe lights.

    the 3rd line running to the front of the car is the vent line running to the charcoal canister

    super functional upgrade! for the roof rack t-slot: in the world of fishing kayaks, t-slot rails have become quite popular. there are probably several iterations of the 't-bolt' but this is what you can find: https://www.austinkayak.com/YakAttack-MightyBolt-2-in-6-pack/ACK22651P.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Shopping: ACK PLA&adpos=1o16&scid=scplp22651_19781_1&sc_intid=22651_19781_1&gclid=CjwKCAjwqfDlBRBDEiwAigXUaJOzMl8AidnLOQ3GWIQkfWsRHxSZ8j33yopAPHvvcl9jLOIlGAsPrBoCC3sQAvD_BwE they fit the t-slot on my e34 roof rails perfectly. search 't-bolt' or 't-slot bolt' on amazon, ebay, etc.

    Did you find a vent mount that actually works? Every one I've bought has been garbage

    if you don't drive this in cold weather much, you can opt to thicken the gear oil a bit to reduce the sound. http://store.uucmotorwerks.com/articles/reduce_rattle.htm
