    Thank you, Fredo! I'm really glad you liked it. Btw, how do you say mold or mildew in Spanish? Google translate said molde but the guy still didn't understand me.

    I usually take my girlfriend with me as she's a walking translator being fluent in English, German, Spanish, Serbian and good French, but she couldn't get away from work this time.

    Mold = moho. "Molde" usually refers to a container.

    Amazing, your girlfriend speaks 5 languages. She's a keeper for sure.

    Gracias So I was a proper dumbass.
    Yeah, she's a keeper for sure. She's pushing me to learn German but it's a slow process.


    I had some luck with 8er today. Decided to remove the timing chain tensioner to replace it as the chain was making noise.

    I found this:

    The old spring was more compressed and shorter than the new one.





    Scoring on the piston. Still scratching my head as to how this happened.





    New stuff installed, it fired up drama-free and no noise from the engine! It's working beautifully. What a relief.

    And here's how the garage looks with a car in it. Shelves and tables to come. 4-post lift will go where the E38 is. It'll be tight but not bad and a lot better than what I had before.

    Making more progress with the garage. Made shelves and arranged tools. The biggest annoyance and waste of time I had in past was looking for tools, well not anymore.









    It's no its final shape but looking good.





    My wardrobe.



    vs my tools.



    Priorities done right.

    Anywho, I'm editing part 2 of the E38 restoration. It's taking a tremendous amount of time to finish it and I just went over 20 minutes. It'll be 100% mechanical repairs and so far I included fixing some oil leaks and complete front/rear suspension overhaul. I was planning to include spark plugs, distributor caps, belts & pulleys, fuel filter, PS pump and oil pan gasket replacement but I'm afraid the video will go over 30 minutes so I still haven't decided if I should make it longer or leave it for part 3.

    In other news, guess who's up for sale.

    Must be nice to have functional tools rack and shelves. It is looking very good!
    I wish my garage will be tall and wide enough, so I can have some shelves for storage.

    I know by modern standards its modestly powered, but surely its a blast to be at the helm of a V12 mated with a manual gearbox.

    Also the garage is looking great.

    It's the small things that make the biggest difference, crap piles up quickly and shelves help out a lot. I'm planning to put 2 more rows above.

    Agreed, the whole E31 cockpit and long hood give that complete experience. Wish I had space and means to keep this one along the E38.

    Danke, I am very excited about the garage.

    Well, boys, part 2 of the E38 restoration is here!

    I spent a tremendous amount of time on this one and decided on a certain format for which I'm very keen to hear the feedback. It is a long video, but I thought showing complete repairs with details while listening to ratchets, spanners, torque wrench clicking away and my heavy breathing would make for a more watchable video than to talk senselessly, time-lapse it and play some stupid music. Overall, I'm happy how it turned but there's always room for improvement.

    I wedged complete suspension overhaul and sorting out oil leaks into this part.
