A couple more DIY Projects are up...

... on my website.
Here: http://www.pedrosgarage.com/Site/DIY%20Projects.html
I also revised the instructions for the Front Engine Mount replacement.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Thanks Pedro! I love the site and have followed many of your guides!

nice one on the spark plug replacement. I did that for the first time last summer and realized then that I would be well advised to replace the spark plug tubes O-rings! Your method is definitely safer than the plier one I used.

One small typo in an otherwise flawless site: "There" instead of "their methods..." in the second paragraph on the tubes.

Quick FYI on the brake fluid DIY: Boiling water doesn't change it's chemical composition. It's still H2O when in gas form.

Thanks for pointing that out.
I knew that: Solid (ice), liquid (water), gas (water vapor).
Must be that I'm getting old!
I'll make sure and correct it next time I update the site.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

You are absolutely correct Mike.
Glad you guys are awake and call me on the errors.
Can't get anything past you!
Thanks.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Not sure if the website originally stated "there methods" or "their methods", but "their methods" would be gramatically correct.

Flushing that clutch line is quite an annoying exercise in dexterity. Thanks for the instructions.
