I appreciate you helping me out with this! I was surprised that a lot of places don't/can't press in ball joints and bushings...

Thankfully the rack isn't leaking since I'll be driving on it for a while, just everything to do with the power steering.

Z3 rack swap may have to be delayed. I won't get the parts in time and I need the car on the road next week.

HA! Rob said he would swing by one day and pick it up from you! Trust me! Give me a few more day to let my finger grow back and I'll come over with the ball joints and shit and we'll bolt her all back together, and maaaaybe I'll remove the trunk when I leave. Also, I want your ET13's.

Heyy that trunk looks awfully familiar

Glad to see you guys are making progress on that project, seen the car in person and i think it looks better in person than it does in these pics, and I agree with the guys who said keep the black interior, its in awesome shape, good luck with the rest of the work

Woot! So what's the plan?

I've got a 6 pack of Hoegaarden and some other beer as back up, so at least if we fail we can do it while drinking and hopefully enjoying some nice weather
