May have lost my mind, but.....

....I'm going to try wrapping the E30. It should be a good body to practice on, since there's not a lot of compound curves or concave areas. Mostly near slab-flat with simple accent lines on the sides. I'm tired of trying to keep this cheap paint buffed. You live and learn.

Color will be bright red, very similar to Hellrot. It's 4mil 3M 1080 film I got really cheaply.

How's that 20v Dewalt been working, Karl? Been looking for a cordless impact for a while and it seems like Dewalt is the best value

Unless like me you have multiple other Dewalt tools.
Totally didn't see these posts until just now... The DeWalt 20V mid-range 1/2" impact has been great. I fully agree that the Milwaukee Fuel is the best right now, but the DeWalts are still very good. I already had some DeWalt 20V stuff, so that's why I went with it rather than getting into Milwaukee. Anyhow, the DeWalt has been performing excellently, and has more than enough power to zip off lug nuts and rusty hardware. 600ft.lbs. of breakaway torque in a small package is pretty awesome.

On the topic of impacts, I just bought the Milwaukee M12 Gen2 1/4" impact last week. That sucker is a little pocket rocket!

Bummer of a Monday

Monday went pretty well until this evening. I was driving from our house to our old house and felt a big thump. I knew right away what it was. My dog, Ranger, has played Russian Roulette with cars the whole 7 years we've had him. Tonight he lost. Goodbye, little buddy!

Sorry to hear this, Ken.

Growing up, my best friend had a dog that would always chase us about a quarter mile or longer down the road as we left. She got hit at least once by someone, but lived. Some dogs just love to take chances with cars as if it's a sport. Nevertheless, RIP Ranger.

Picked up a set of Beyern Mesh wheels, 8.5x18 and 9.5x18. Shod with new Nankang N25s, I stuck them on Ashlyn so I could get the SSRs fitted with new tires.

The clearcoat is just about all gone from the hood. Time to decide if it will be my attempt at replicating Amber's work, or try to find someone who can create a wrap from the photos I have.

I don't know about performance comparisons, but right now Ridgid has be sold with their lifetime warranties. I once had a Ridgid hammer drill and it was a shelf model because they were sold out, and it must have been dropped at some point because the chuck was always slightly off center, 3 years later I brought it to a authorized tool repair shop here in town, they didn't have the parts, so I was sent a new and updated hammer drill, which is so much better than the original, and the lifetime warranty passes on to this one too.

Rigid has always been a top end brand. Even after they moved production off shore they managed to keep decent quality.
Currently I've got a Kobalt compact impact, and pretty happy with it. Picked it up mainly because I already had the drill and two batteries. The 24V power really makes a difference in the torque.

Thanks for the feedback on that, I really never looked into them quality wise, I just went after this one at the time because there was a really good sale going. And with the shelf model I really lucked out even more because for the drill, charger, and 2 batteries I only payed $80. I really need to get a Ridgid Impact drill, as much as I love the hammer/regular drill, it doesn't get much use on automotive stuff.

New member of the BMW Farm family

Eddie told me a while back he wanted to sell his E30 we worked on, did and engine swap to, replaced the suspension with Bilsteins/H&R sport springs/Ireland Engineering adjustable sway bars/Powerflex bushings. We did a lot of repairs to all the picky little things that were wrong (OBD, radio, antenna, gas gauge, odometer gears). He spent a couple thousand on the interior. After all that he said he should never have started the project because he still doesn't feel comfortable trying to maintain it (even though he knows I'd help with anything he needed done). He brought Hazel Ann (the E30) over yesterday, and I am now the proud owner of one of the best sorted out 1985 325e BMWs anywhere around here. I'll not say how much I paid, but it was ridiculously cheap.

quite nice, ken. she's got a good home.

i sorta miss cadence.....

i like driving the z3, just miss having an obc, of all things....


i have been so busy with work i have not been able to get more work done on piper, but i have the engine assembly and harness about 85% assembled and ready to get mated to the transmission to be reinstalled. new mounts, hoses, belts, and all that good stuff. went with a single plane clutch, a valeo unit, iirc, but it isn't a lightweight unit. not sure an e36 m44 vert is the proper chassis for "performance improvements"....i just want some top down, calypso red goodness to cruise in.

did i mention it's red??

happy for you, ken.

Everyone needs a friend like Eddie. He has essentially given me three cars; the '84 633, the '87 325is (that he bought from Amber), and now the '85 325e. He loves projects, but when they are done, he's done with them.

Maybe more of us need to BE a friend like Eddie.

That's totally awesome, Ken! Congrats! Eddie sounds like a great human. Got any plans for it, other than enjoying some seat time?

----

Not much new to report on my end. I'm still instructing with the BMWCCA, which has been fun. Since the E36 was sorted out long ago, the bulk of my energy has been going toward the GTO's restoration. I now have it completely torn down to a bare shell, ready for the frame and body to be separated. There is of course rust in some areas, but that was expected. The guy who will be doing the rust repair has another car ahead of mine which will be with him for about three months, so in the meantime I learned how to weld and made a body dolly from scratch. Came out pretty good! And it was a great first welding project.

----

Lastly, RIP Jessi Combs. She was the real deal and an all around badass, and I'm genuinely saddened to learn of her passing.

I'm going to enjoy the AIR CONDITIONED seat time in that E30, the only BMW I have currently with functional A/C. It drives so differently from my '87 325is. It's geared for highway cruising with a 2:93 rear. My 87 has a 3:73 so it scats, but runs out of breath about 115. I still don't know how fast this 85 will go...

Man, you have that welding down pat. Nice work!!! And I met a Pontiac fanatic near me. His 67 GTO sitting outside his shop is a show-stopper. He has a (I think he said) 65 Tempest body on the rotisserie. The rolling chassis is done. He has two Firebirds, I didn't catch which years, and he's REALLY interested in the 71 Firebird sitting in my yard. That isn't mine to sell. I gave it to my brother before he died, and he willed it to his son-in-law.

Like you, I am really bummed out by Jessi's death. My whole family is. We were all fans of her shows.

Oooh, that is indeed a beautiful '66 GTO! The '67s have a slightly different grille, trim, and a few other things. In any regard, it certainly looks to have been restored to very high standard. Glad to see that it still has a Pontiac engine under the hood, too.

He puts nothing but Poncho engines in his Ponchos.

He is an incredible craftsman. He had to replace most of the floorboards in the Tempest. I asked where he bought them, and he said he didn't, he made them. He was showing me his planishing hammer, English wheel and bead rollers (plural). I swear, you could not tell the made floorboards from what left the factory 54 years ago. I'm going back over there to visit and taking a better camera. That GTO (you're right, it's a 66, I mistyped) was a basket case when he got it. I really admire people with talent and perseverance like that, mostly the perseverance. You can learn just about any skill, but staying with it long enough to truly master it is what matters.

Speaking of perseverance, check this video out. It's a really captivating stop-motion video of a guy restoring his classic Range Rover over a three year span. I haven't gotten all the way through the video yet, but it's rather mesmerizing. Certainly not your average car resto video, and worth a watch.

Wow, I'm so sorry to hear about this, Franklyn. What a terrible thing to go through. I'm sure each day has its challenges, but stay strong. Also, please be careful with any pain medications prescribed by your doctors.

What happened?

Wow! That was quite an impact! Glad you weren't injured more seriously! I'm also very surprised at no airbags!

Hope you recover quickly!

Jesus dude. I am glad you made it out of there in one piece. Older cars are fun, but they are not know for their crash safety. I am surprised the airbags did not go off. Any idea why that happened? Get well soon.
