The latest E30 video is here!



I found this throttle body on eBay (as I have already done mine before YT) and I'm not quite sure what happened to it. It was one of the ugliest things I had come across in some time. White and pink corrosion and a thick later or oily dirt.

Let me know what you guys think. I had fun doing this one but it was a nightmare to put back together again. Be warned if you plan to do this yourself, take extra care to make note of how it goes together.

Enjoy!

Thanks, dude!

What did you have in mind? At the moment, If I do take work on, I try to make it something I haven't done on the channel yet.

I dont know what drives you .
Can I buy some please ???
People may say"that looks nice"but its all in the detail Steve, and its soooooo gratifying to see a guy who really cares about his work AND can carry it out to such a high level.
I have worked in a few toolrooms and with medical and now the oil and gas sector`s and it would be a privledge to work with you.

Cheers Mart. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
