    Spaghetti is almost finished, down to one connector I have to pull out of the rear bumper. Should have the full harness out tomorrow so I can ship it off to the harness guy for depinning and customization.



    Sound deadening comes out on Saturday. Going to try the dry ice method, followed by the heat gun.

    The best I could come up with is this:

    FTFY. The cabin filter is under the hood and easy to get to.

    Yeah, that was a welcome change in the E46 and later cars. Pain in the butt (and back) to change in the E36.
    Whoomah!

    Cabin filter and heater core went to the municipal dump along with 300lbs of other junk.

    Headed to the big time, boys.

    This is as far as we got after about three hours of working the sound deadening material:



    Turns out the dry ice isn't very effective. 2.5hrs into I thought "gee, wonder what the heat gun does" and it turns out it take it right off with little to no effort. The heat gun leaves more adhesive residue behind, but it gets 100% of the surface area off. Whereas the dry ice leaves that granular sandpaper looking remnants of the actual deadening material behind.

    Big waste of money and time trying the dry ice. Lesson learned.
