Had a blast last night. Worked till 630pm, then went right over to work on installing new equipment at my dads offices and completely rewiring two of them. Got to run all new conduit and cables around the offices andthrough the ceilings, and took a Sawzall to some credenzas to hide the stuff nicely.

If anyone tells you to make your own ethernet cables, tell them to f*ck themselves sans lube while lighting themselves on fire. Making jacks was easy, terminating 20 patch cables by hand is one of the least pleasant experiences I've ever had.

Finished up around 730 this morning and took a power nap and shower and went back to work. Is it nap time yet?

Sorry, I should have kept reading, m10 x 150. SB part # 15.


According to Doug's Domain, the upper bolt is shared with the idler pulley:

Here it is on the E34 the same part # from FCPEuro.

And the same FCPEuro part # mentioned for the E36:

Do you hold business hours from 730pm-730am?


Seriously, I have no intention of EVER doing that again.

This guy always parks next to my E36 when I drive it to work. Says his car needs to see other German cars to feel comfortable.

How do you change the titles over so fast? Or do you not register them and change titles.... MA and DC both took forever to get me a new title.

Eh he did enough for me as a kid/teen that I don't mind helping out. He offered to pay but I said to get me some dinners and we're good.

That's mighty nice of you.

I'd probably have done the same. Though, I might have taken a bit longer than one night. Maybe two...

Oh dude various projects at his offices have been ongoing for months. This was just sort of the grand finale for prepping for more agents coming onboard soon. There was a lot of prep work before hand that let me finish the rest in one night.

Its been a crazy time with moves, expansions, and new realtors and staff.

Still actually have 3 more computers, first real NAS, and a new property management software that we'll likely be deploying late this quarter. But, now all the hard wiring is in place so it should be plug and play. I can do all the setup at home on my time and just drop the equipment off and plug it in.

California is awesome in the fact that registrations can be transferred to a different person. California is not awesome for everything else car-related.


And dear god... This video is fvcking insane. I've never seen a car jump so gracefully.
