Not much fun tonight

Took the brake booster off tonight, looks like I'll need a new master. Seals are gone and it's rusted to hell because of brake fluid leak. Decided Gino is going to have to paint around the main wiring. That 30 year old copper is just way to fragile to mess with.

Just rear side glass, passenger seat and gas tank to remove before I take the pressure washer to it. Then off to the bodyshop maybe this Friday or Monday morning more like.

Was looking at a 250 ft. lb torque wrench today. Thinking about that crank pully you know.

I remember when I did this exact same thing to that '69 2002 I had (that I sold before finishing). And I agree with Rudy. Carefully take out all the wiring. If it's in that bad shape, put it down on the floor and pull out the soldering iron.............. start replacing that bad parts. Electrical system is important and considering you're going to all this effort, may as well take the time to finish everything rite while it's all apart.

Rite now I'm doing a complete tear down and restoration on an E30 M3. Tear down is now finished and I'm in the process of rebuilding it all. The '69 2002 was a hell of a lot simpler and yet the E30 M3 has been more enjoyable........... as it was a Texas car with no rust or seized up parts. I also had another E30 M3 Canadian car for parts and I cursed a swore like mad at that car as she was a biatch to tear down for parts cause everything was Canadian-ized............ rusted, seized up, dirty, etc, etc. That pig got me cut up and bleeding more times then I want to remember.

Anyways, good luck with the project. Hope your garage is insulated !!!!

Car is going to Gino's on Monday. Took the wires off last night, rear windows and trim. Justs the seats and the tank and I'm done. Picked up a 250 ft lb torque wrench today for $80.
