97 Blue Z3 2.8 w/113k

I've had the car for a couple of months now and absolutely love driving it. However, it has required quite a bit of TLC to make it the car that it deserves to be. Here are some of the issues (opportunities) I have solved, mostly by making inquires to this site:

Top leaks at A-frame
Flooding top stowage compartment and trunk
Leaking tail lights
Secondary air pump
Secondary air pump check valve
intermittent fuel gauge
unreadable clock display
no stereo display
Door locks and alarm not working (three chirps with FOB actuation)

A few other non-Z3 specifics as well. The projects I have to look forward to, with your help:

clunky transmission
Suspension overhaul
Rocking passenger seats
Sagging glove compartment
Missing jack parts

If you have any questions about what I have already repaired, shoot me a PM. If you have suggestions for what I haven't, do the same.

I also managed to convert my armrest w/cassette tape holders into a storage compartment. I'll see if I can figure out how to post a picture of it... I look forward to hearing from you.
