I got all the lines bent, I just need to get them flared, then we're back on track!

Well, good progress today!

Me and my canine companion went for a parts run. Got some brake hard line, flaring tool and fittings.







I'm going to throw the diff back and half shafts back in when my buddy gets here. Then all that's left is the e brake assembly, rears rotors and pads. Then bleed the brakes and do a celebratory burnout.

It's ****ing freezing out.

Today all I got done was the diff 1 half shaft, and 1 full brake assembly. So basically one half of the rear end is complete.

Well the other half shaft is in.

The to do list:
Rear right hand brake assembly
Rear right pad and rotor
Attach rear sway bar
Put in springs and shocks
Bleed brakes
Do oil change
Do diff oil change
Put on rear spoiler
put in z3 1.9 shift lever
Put on wheels.

Not all of those are necessary to drive. The diff oil and oil change can wait till I bring it to Budds oakville, and I'll probably do the shifter while i'm there.

So we're good to go.

wait.. no we're not!

****ING BLEEDER SCREWS!!! I got 1 out, 1 snapped, and I haven;t tried the other two.

But all thats left on the list is to bleed the brakes, put the rear shocks in and put the muffler on.

My god she is beautiful..
I took her around the block today, the ABS works, but the brakes don't. I'm going to pressure bleed them. I put my stereo in it today and it's cleannnnnnnn!

Pictures to come.

Because I don't want some giant hunk of shit in my driveway.

My buddy might be taking it and making it a farm car, and driving over it with his jeep. So if someone wants to give me money for it instead of him getting it for free. I'm all ears. It runs and drives.
