Wrrrck wrrrck wrrrck wrrrck wrrrck wrck wrck Wu k k k k. A 3/8 self tapper. In hind sight I would of just cut the head off with a coping saw as it was holding pressure. None the less I touched it...
About 20km out from 170,000km. oil change is just before the due range... Been aiming for 5000km/3110mi change intervals, but end up cutting it at about 7000km/4350mi. This time around I have all that MMO oil mixed in from when I soaked the pistons and what ever came out of the rings too.
Next is body stripping, November the 7th the car goes into the body shop ideally I'd like to have most of what I imagine they be working around removed, ie, fender, rear bumper, door seals, internal furnishings. Just so things don't get brokener.
While I'm in there change over the door hinges too. And patch the front bumper, not sure on paint work but I have 1/4" thick white PVC cuttings that I can shape up to look like something protruding from the bumper. And to the hood using the same PVC and making tiara ets where I have the white tape.
