Wire Can I get some of those brackets that hold the spark plug wires? Those are a great idea!

Smoothie Spark plug Wire Kit...you can find them from Ebay to autoparts places. Do a search and you will find many places that sell them.

Re: My 97 Z4C project...A Work in Progress

Well not much farther than I was but a Lot of progress still! As we all deal with, work, Wife, family, kids & grandkids, and the never ending Honey-do list. Any ways I have been sanding on the very rear of the underside of the car and have the bulk of the sanding done. Still have part of the frame rails/sheetmetal on both sides of the frame rails. The sheetmetal area where the fuel tank neck extends to the fuel door. The pass. side spring pocket needs finished. And where the fender well sheetmetal meets underbody sheetmetal has to be done. So not a lot BUT the hardest part to be done still. The fender wells where undercoating was applied by factory, unless it is evident that there was rust I am just sanding down to smooth out and will apply paint on top of it. So here are a few pics thus far. Next pics I post will be once I have completed sanding and have primered/painted. So close to finally putting her back together I can't stand it!

As you can see where I left off. Fuel pump access door hole can be seen. I am going to cut it off and cut a piece of sheetmetal larger than the hole and use small sheetmetal screws to reattach it. Some don't like a fuel pump access door but what I went through trying to get it out without removing the rearend...well lets say that ain't happening again unless necessary lol! That's how this underbody resto began...once it was out my OCD kicked in lmao.

Drivers side seen here. Access area with fuel filler door seen through it. This area had a lot of surface rust (as can be seen still as I am not finished with this area yet), still can see some original paint in this area. As well as a few nooks and cranny's that need sanded, not just here but throughout.

Rear end. I have learned in doing all of this that they, the factory used very generous amounts of sealant as can be seen, not only inside but outside of the car.

No updates in 8 months, bummer. I have pretty much the same car so was hoping to see more of the final outcome.
