First coat of POR15 applied to areas where there was any surface rust, as well as to any exposed seams.

Started cleaning up around the IMS bearing cover, as I will be taking this off to reseal it. There is some evidence of it having been leaking....

I had a bit of spare time at home today so I fitted the quickshift mechanism I got from Alex.

As soon as I can find the office stud extractor kit I'll tackle the snapped engine mount bolt. It has been soaking in penetrating oil and I have got as far as centre punching it.



Very nearly done with removing pipe clips in engine bay covering pipes.



I am slightly undecided where to underseal up to in the engine bay, I'll have a chat with the bodywork man and see what he thinks.

Bolt extracted. I drilled most of the way through it but it just wasn't budging with the stud extractor. So in the end I drilled all the way through it and heated it up with the blow torch. It then came out relatively easily. The blow torch does work wonders, but it means that now I have to repaint the area where it was heated.



This would have been a real pain with the engine in place. I'll be sure to chase the threads out with a tap before the bolts go back in.

I can see why garages struggle to give quotes on jobs and keep the customers happy. Removing 4 bolts for the engine mounts should have taken 5 minutes but ended up taking me over an hour. On the other hand, the exhaust manifold I removed which I expected to results in broken studs took less than 5 minutes.

I've given the areas around the engine bay another clean with gunk and water to get the worst of the muck off to make cleaning up before repainting easier.

Thanks, I'm doing all of my new videos in that style now, but obviuosly for my older stuff where I just have photos I can't do it.

I've got some new wheels to try out. I was a bit wary on offsets but I think the fronts are just about OK. Tried with a wing dropped on.





I'll try the rears next week when it has rear subframes. Clearly there is more space now for larger disks, but I have a plan....

Oooooh I like those. They look very similar to BBS CH-Rs but I think they’re different Question

Nice rims. There dosnt seem to be much after market stuff in the way of wheels for the 996.
Is this due to the expense of different sizes front and rear?

They are Avant Garde Ruger Mesh wheels, 19"x8.5" and 19"x11". It isn't usual to run 19" wheels on a 996, but then it isn't normal to run 380mm disks on the front of a 996 either. I'll be getting the rear arches rolled.

Thanks Thumb

Im surprised by the cost of those - they look cheap for such a good looking wheel.

What offsets are you using, and do you know the tyre sizes?

Apparently they are ET45 front and ET52 rears. I haven't thought about tyres yet.
