While I was in there... Took care of a lot of maintenance items.

Missing bolt on the oil pan, so replaced it:



Car still had the old oil return line with the rubber piece. Scary... Line was very degraded:



Replaced it with updated return line thanks the this tread.

Also replaced the CPV valve (it wasn't leaking) and the VANOS line. New line was slightly different with additional connection to the head using the VANOS bolt:



Also replaced the lower windshield seal



Getting the windshield wipers off took some serious effort. Had to make a tool modifying a faucet puller from home depot



Work perfect:

And last but not least, replaced the oil level sensor and now oil tempo gauge works!



I think I'll leave the mechanicals alone for a while and focus on the body/paint.

Step one on the exterior was a good wash and clay bar. Overall the paint is in pretty good shape but there are a couple issues:

Some scratches on the hood, hard to see in the pic. Barely feel them with my finger nail so hoping compound will help:



Water mark on truck. Not to worried about this, got an OEM CSL trunk on the way



Weird dull section in the middle of the drivers rear fender flare. I think there been some kind of repair. We'll see if the DA helps.



Not a paint issue but need to replace the window seals...

Quick post clay bar pic, cleans up nice! Going to install brake ducts and delete the headlight washers. Also going to redo the bumper but haven't decided if I want to repair the current one (fill license plate holes and shave reflectors), or just buy a new euro bumper.

great progress! car is moving along nicely. Two tone interior is a huge difference! Looks like your doing most of the work in the parking garage? That's awesome, I bet your neighbors must think you're crazy! I did a bunch of stuff on my car when I lived in an apartment complex and I always had to endure a lot of comments anytime I was out there... "you're going to wash all the paint off that thing" "that's why I drive cars you don't have to work on" etc. got old pretty quickly

Yeah I live in an highrise with a garage beneath it. I park down on the bottom level and have a storage area on the same level with all my parts/tools. Actually a big car crowd down there with a bunch of M3's/Mustangs/etc. Even a couple guys that don't live in the building that pay to park/store cars. Hardest part is I always have to lock everything up and cant leave the car up on jack stands!!

New challenge, getting a check engine light code 57. Connectivity to post O2 cat. I assume one of the wires broke when I moved the sensors to section 1. Also had to splice one wire so im betting that may be the issue. Going to pull it apart tonight.

While I'm in there going to re-do a couple things. Wasn't happy with how the wiring loom split worked out, I wrapped it with electrical tape. Going to redo it with




:

This tee will split the O2 wires going down the driver side of the tranny to the wire holder I installed.
