    ZHPMafia Family Reunion 2013 - Williamsburg, VA - Maintenance Thread

    Hey everyone

    I thought I would kick off this thread for those who will want to do their maintenance at Dane's on Sunday the 19th during SIGFest2013

    Last year I had plenty of help when I replaced my VANOS seals, VCG, ignition coils/plugs, and installed my VANOS anti-rattle kit for my ZHP. It was an awesome experience and for those who have not done any maintenance during a SIGFest, I highly recommend doing so

    I realize plans may change so feel free to update your maintenance desires as the situation warrants! Let's have a good list for SIGFest2013!

    Everyone interested and signing up please cut and paste to update the list. No need to copy everything above the list Thank you.

    Hi..............I am thinking of "Sharking" the ZHP. Have never done it and I know many here have. I also do NOT have a charger (other than battery tender). Would also like to to the rear window switch mod (Kyle knows what I mean). May also do a steering wheel swap. (Colby).

    Little help from my friends?

    Sure. Add name to list. Someone bring a constant voltage battery charger.

    Mine is automatic

    OK, I'm gonna come in with my Spring suspension overhaul. I'm planning a complete bumper-to-bumper replacement of everything suspension-related... Stage I & II of Mango's Suspension Refresh thread on E46F. Most of the small stuff (bushings, mounts, etc.) has at least 60k on it, and the larger items are all > 100k. It's way overdue.



    What in this needs special tools (ie. more than a ratchet kit, wrench set, tq wrench) ? Ex. RTAB, spring compressor, etc. Ideally I'd do all those "special items" on maintenance Sunday and bring the rest of the parts home to do the rest on my free time. Is this realistic ?

    + front wheel bearings are being done as well. I know DW has the tools, so this is 100% being done in VA.
