Removed the spare tyre well and panels above the mufflers tonight, after clearing out the garage. Now I have a lot more space. Good timing, more shit arriving tomorrow. Need to crack on, though. KP60 needs to come home, and Suzuki does too!

Went and picked this thing up from the side of the road earlier and gave it a bit of TLC: "new" (out of the 240 wagon) spark plugs! :-D

Pulled the old ones out and found one normalish, but sooty, two very sooty, and the final one not combusting and oily.

Also got under the BMTroubleYou and found the arse end of the trans and marked where to give the body the chop.

244 out and about, in actual use for the first time, took it to work and back freshly re-legal:

And asked a man about a dog, and he said: Exhaust is one piece, unbolt at engine or cut off. Roger. Will do.

A few updates for this thread:

1) Reason the V12 wouldn't start last time I tried: no fuel. Went to pump out the tank today and it ran dry for a while blowing air. Killed the power and moved on to other tasks.

2) Took it out for dinner last night. Wife drove home. Wife drove herself to yoga this morning in it. Revved it a bit much a few times. I drove back from yoga. Then I took it to the hardware store. On the way home the knock got a LOT worse :-D oh well.

Spent some time on the BMW destruction last night. Got it up in the air, and left exhaust cut, and some fuel bits partially pulled.

Finally got the garage cleared up behind the BMW carcass. Volvo engine fully stripped and relocated. Most stuff put away where it belongs. So I was able to progress the BMW killing a little in preparation for more tomorrow! :-)

Tomorrow's plans, and the weekend's plans:

0) Remove 02 sensors from driver's side
0.5) Possibly be forced to remove driver's seat before 1
1) Cut other exhaust at the merge point
2) Remove all under-car plastic shields
3) Remove entire exhaust from merge backward
4) Wedge/jam front wheels so they can't roll
5) Remove fuel lines and/or tank after lifting body in the air
6) Disconnect brake lines from rear end
7) Disconnect anything else from the rear end
8) Lower entire rear subframe out of the shell
9) Remove seats from floor pan
10) Pull wiring forward and out of the way
11) Cut the rear off of the front
12) Cut rear into smaller pieces and put in the trailer for recycling
13) Find a place to put the rear subframe, diff, brakes, wheels, tyres, tank, etc.
14) Condense the remainder down until the KP60 can come home for repairs and WOF

Or something like that. Gotta get my KP back! :-)
