I have a little Canon Powershot SD780 pocket camera. Takes excellent photos for its size and it cleans up pretty easily. I'm pretty anal about washing my hands several times while working on things, so it gives me the opportunity to take photos, but if I get some grime on the camera, no biggie.

One thing I'm going to have to take care of tomorrow.. The Redline MT-90 I used in the trans doesn't seem to be working well. Feels like its catching teeth on mild/slow shifts, so I'm going to drain it tomorrow and install some Redline D4ATF and see how that works.

That red label on the transmission should not be ignored. There were many 260s that were ATF-only. You're probably going to want to run some crappy ATF through there first, then drain it and refill with the redline.

Great work, though.

I've got the redline D4ATF in there now. It shifts much better.

I'll change it out again in 6 months or so to make sure I have the rest of the MT-90 out. For now it works well.

Here are some photos of the unboxing of my brand new rear staggered 17x9" m-systems.. fresh off the boat from Germany. 2 of the last 37 new ones in existence. Saving up some funds for a new set of tires and then these babies will be on the car. Smile









And here's another maintenance item I'll be working on soon... The last couple of months, I've noticed that after sitting for over a week, the engine has problems developing oil pressure and takes 10 seconds for the oil light to go out on cold start. After reading up on it, it sounds like my check valve in the oil filter housing is bad, so I ordered up a new housing. Found a new OEM housing at ECSTuning.com for $140. It showed up today.. it even came with a new oil filter:

Love it makes me miss my old E34 540... With that said, you really should go half smoked tails instead of clear. Goes better with the black paint and your smoked front corners.

I agree. I just haven't yet switched over to the half smoked tails. Its on the list of things I want to do. Smile
