Got a few hours?

Spent most of my evening reading this thread on r3vlimited, worth having a look. It's about an M3 being stripped and rebuilt. Nice write-up.

And I got to it looking at an m20 oil sump to see if that guard has accomodation for quick oil changes (see other thread).

that's gotta be one of the most amazing things smiling smiley
however, i never agree with people that cut off their roof and weld back another one. that will never again be a CAR.

Awesome! That was a very informative and entertaining read.

I wish I knew how, or had the guts to try, to do body work like that.

I found the transmission rebuild very interesting. He has great photos and clear instructions.

I once wrote an article explaining how the internals of a transmission work, and why double-clutching on downshifts is so important to the longevity of synchromesh cups. But the photos and text in this M3 rebuild project do a much better job of showing and explaining all that.

That r3vlimited forum is mostly populated by morons and idiots, but the technical sections do contain quite a few gems of really useful stuff like this.

Wow, this dude likes to form and weld metal. And it looks like he is good at it, too.

Thanks for reposting Ferd. The double clutching is super handy when downshifting on uphill climbs - conserving the uphill momentum as much as possible. Of course, I'm an urban driver; speed is not the primary concern. I'm avoiding a stalled engine. Still, I warn passengers in advance, "The Beemie may need to express itself as we drive uphill." The engine rev in prep from second to first rumbles through the cloth soft top. Then we merrily proceed uphill.

Cheers, Kelly
