Well, Ive definitely been playing catch up. I was working night shift and found myself collecting parts, not working on the car.. So I made some changes. Hahah. Throughout the last month, its been slow and steady progress.
So, for starters. Ive been getting myself ready for dual calipers in the rear. However, who knows how long that package will take getting through customs. So until than, Ive been rebuilding brakes. I have one more set to do for the rear. And one set for the fronts to do still too.

And finished, https://flic.kr/p/2mKqMcs

Waiting on rear wheel/axle bearings before getting the brakes on. I would like to just do it all in one full swoop. In the meantime, I stripped more parts off the 740 wagon, and started pulling the suspension off the wagon. I got the rears on, and Im planning on getting a lighter rear spring. The rear bc springs work well for wagons Ive noticed. Not the sedans with weight reduced hahah.

And fronts waiting for the new rotors, pads, etc.

I got slowed down on the abs delete when I realized I needed 2 plugs for the brake distribution box. So Im waiting for those few plugs, before I continue on with it.
I attempted a rebuild on my 13c and the turbine shaft snapped. It looked like it wasnt getting any oil at all, everything looked burnt up. So, Im getting a whole new chra that will be ready to install.

I dont have the notes on me, but later today I will post them. I got my cylinders measured out, and from my understanding. I will have to go to the 1st OS piston. Which Im relieved about.
Hopefullly this evening, I also will have a picture of the car with the front coils on. Pending on when the brakes get here.
