Ordered the M6x1 Timesert kit. It'll be here the day AFTER my long weekend ends. Figures.
In the mean time, I sprayed things down with brakeleen and wiped them of the funk they've acquired. Then I slathered the leaking area with Hondabond.
I also put a bottle of ATP-205 in the engine. There is evidence of a rear main seal leak, and maybe the front main too (the engine does have almost 180k on it, and had a tough life for a while). This stuff is magic. Get it here:
Finally, after driving around for a day with a radio that didn't want to tune anything in at all (why do the important parts break right after you buy a used car?), I swapped in my old Pioneer Premiere DEH-P880PRS.
And I figured as long as I had the console apart, I should go whole hog and get the foglight harnesses installed. I pulled the factory fogs off of my 98 DB7 before it was totalled, and the installation was the reverse of the removal. Nice and easy. The lamps and brackets stayed on the workbench until the long weekend, since I can't find a PDF of the templates anywhere.
She's running good and strong. Almost time for pictures I think...
