Hi Guys,

More slow and steady progress.

I bought a spal wiring kit for the Mishimoto electric fan off Amazon for $30 shipped to my door....score! Got that wired in this weekend.



Mounted the relay behind the battery post and ran the switched power to the OBDII port.




Ready to go to the fan:



Then I mounted my crossbrace:

Then on Saturday we had some of our BMW friends over for a little end of summer party, it was a ton of fun. Big thanks to Ryan (Ryanc28), Nathan (RightYouAreKen), and Andrew (Jaws)for coming over, it was a blast!



I'm planning to get the car mostly buttoned up this weekend so should be back on the road soon.

Hi Guys,

More small updates

I got the cooling system buttoned up today!

I was a bit hesitant going with the Mishimoto electric fan setup but I'm glad I did. I have a Zionsville on my other E36, and while I think that is a better setup, I was really happy with this one. Everything fit great and seems to be very good quality (plus it ended up costing about half of what the Zionsville setup cost with the group discounts etc.)



Started cleaning the engine bay, still needs work though.



I got new OEM fender liners installed today. I debated going aftermarket but I'm glad I didn't, these are pretty nice.

Before cleaning:



After:


And then the Nice mail man dropped these off for me new zkws!!





Should have the front end back on tomorrow and hopefully tackle the power steering lines and reservoir.

Here is the project for this weekend...working Saturdays so I don't have tons of time to balance work, life, girl friend etc.

Hopefully get the power steering lines and reservoir replaced, finally got my tranny mounts today, VCG, spark plugs and cabin filter. I'm getting anxious to get it off jack stands.

Next up after this happens will be brakes all around.
