We hope you all enjoyed the holidays and wish you a Happy New Year! My apologies for no blog post last week…to be honest, I was having so much fun spending time with family and watching our baby boy experience his first Christmas, that it totally slipped my mind! Remington is almost 4 months old, here is photo of him from his most recent trip to the shop:
To help make up for it, we have a many cool blog posts coming up with our newest winter project that we mentioned a few weeks ago. Before we get to that, we have a few items of business to discuss.
If you follow us on Facebook, you may already know that we have recently upgraded our tire machines! One is a new tire mounting machine:
And the is a Hunter with Road Force Measurement:
We’re very excited about this new equipment! Rather than just spinning the wheel, it simulates the pressure of the weight of the car on the road to reflect real life balance capabilities. It also matches where the tire should be mounted on the wheel to yield the best performance. For more information on Road Force Measurement, check out this video. Reggie’s Motorworks offers a full line of winter tires and wheel/tire packages. We even have storage options for your off season tires! Give us a call, and we’ll get you through the snow! 317.773.0074
This 1993 BMW 525i touring is for sale! If it looks familiar, that’s because it was one of Reggie’s bimmers! It has been well-maintained and cared for by Reggie’s Motorworks. For more information or to schedule a test drive, give Nick a call in the office at 317.773.0074!
This 2004 BMW 330xi was in for a new valve cover gasket, new spark plugs, and to replace a leaking crank case vent valve hose:
A new transmission pan gasket and new drive belts were in order for this 2005 BMW 530i:
And now for the beginnings of the 1600/2002 project! This 1973 BMW 2002 is rusty, and not the best bimmer to fix up…however, some of her parts will be used to fix up her fellow 1600. So this story will have a happy ending!
Here’s a look at some of the rust issues:
You can see holes all along the driver’s side rocker panel:
Reggie removes the engine and eventually the subframes and suspension will come out (not pictured here, but check out Reggie’s photos on Facebook!):
That’s all for now! Stay tuned for much more on this project and other work going on here in the shop! Have a wonderful weekend!
