Default Re: Las vegas area members check in

Just got back from instructing at the San Diego Chapter school at Chuckwalla (east of Indio, CA). After burning up a bunch of fuel this weekend, I'm just about due for an inspection II (interval is done based on fuel usage, not miles). I'm going to do a full Besian Vanos upgrade at the same time.

Can't decide if I should rent the tools and shim kit or just buy them. How many of you are DIY'ers and would want to 'rent' the tools and shim kit if I bought them? No sense paying for shipping too if multiple local DIY'ers would use them.

Cheers!

Well, I ended up buying the timing and valve shim tools (plus a shim kit from amazon).

I completed the vanos rebuild with the Beisan Systems kits and valve adjustment this weekend. Man, Saturday was a long day in the garage...

Guys, just a heads up to let you know that I am available on a limited basis to work on your cars. I'm happy to step you through the process if you have never done it before but want to learn (oil change, brakes, tranny, diff, clutch, suspension, whatever), install mods, valve adjust, vanos bullet proofing, suspension work, etc. Doesn't have to be an E46M3 as I've been doing this since my E30 days. General maintenance to race prep. I don't weld or do lower end work on engines (sorry). I'm not the fastest guy in the world either.

I have a lift and all tools at my place. I'm not in business doing this, just looking to pay for some new mods here and there! I have a day job that is demanding, so please be patient. If you are desperate, let me know and I'll adjust as best I can or point you to the right person in town to do the work.

I don't want to compete with Kaiv, but if you aren't headed to SoCal or can't wait for him to get back to Vegas...

email me at admranger at earthlink d0+ Ne+

Plus sign = 't' (too many spamming threads lately).

Yes (I think I PM'd this to you a while back). I can help you (I think I owe you and email response right now), or anyone else!

Ger: I haven't been to the event. Sounds like fun but work comes early so probably not likely I'll end up at InO anytime soon...

Cheers!
