So we were SUPPOSED to be priming the car today, but more little things popped up that needed to be taken care of. The drivers side door had some rust that when we investigated turned out to be worse than originally thought.

The seam was opened up.



And it was sandblasted, then SEM Self Etching Primered.

Thanks dude. Yeh the sandblaster makes a catastrophic mess, but it sure does clean out the rust fast. And it took about 20 minutes from start to finish to clean the entire lower part of the door and up the sides a bit.

Nothing done on the sunroof yet. We were going to sandblast it, but I'd be cleaning sand out of the interior for years to come.

Started priming. Got a coat of anti-corrosion primer on there, next is high build.







ALSO I'VE SOLVED MY BOGGING PROBLEM!?

It was the damn fuel pump! It has a broken/fallen off grounding piece.

Oh, she does. I was just wondering what the minimum balla_status is required for such awesomeness. Apparently we all have it.

Tara just stands around and makes fun of me. If I were to guess, she requires baller_status = 1.

On an unrelated note:

Sike, the problem is not fixed.

I though you said it was a broken *main* ground strap? Have you sanded down and reconnected all the main grounds? One at the battery, one at the block, and depending on the car, one more on the passenger side strut tower.

The coolant temp sensor moving should be a clue: there are two sensors on the M20, one for the motor and one for the ECU. Maybe on the M50 it uses the same sensor? If the ECU thought the coolant temperature was significantly higher or lower, it would throw the fuel mixture into disarray. At fully cold, my tune requires 160% of the fuel than at fully warm, for instance.

Imagine the motor suddenly thinks the motor is fully cold (or worse, -40 or whatever the sensor's floor is) or overheated (160 is the sensor ceiling on the m20) and pulls / dumps in fuel. It would run like shit.

Yeh sorry I posted that after the fuel pump turned out to be not the problem.

The car is running perfect now that the grounds are all sanded and tightened down.

So the rear end is the next thing on the list of "shit to do".

Subframe bushings, trailing arm bushings, LSD (rebuilt) and rear brake lines.





ALSO: M3 offset control arm bushings from Condor Speed Shop.
