I remember it being a fun and interesting project and decided to attempt another one, only this time, it was very rusty. This alternator was tested working before the restoration. However, this was more for the aesthetics. I began by dismantling the alternator completely. This was difficult as most of the bolts were seized. After some persuasion with various tools, they all came. An impact driver is now on it way to me. I then gave each part I was about to blast a clean to save the blasting media from grease and dirt. I then blasted the case, the fan and pulley and the nuts and bolts. I then clean the parts with isopropyl in preparation for paint. Firstly I etch primed them and then none-sand primed, and then coloured and lacquered. I then zinc plated the fan, pulley and bots that attach to the front of the alternator. My plating solution is not in good condition. It should be clear, not foggy. I also don't show the water bath I have for dipping the parts in, in between different baths. Whilst I let the plating dry for two days, I set about changing the brushes on the voltage regulator. I then strip, clean and paint the stator red. Adding lacquer to the coils for protection. I decide to buy a new rotor as I found one for a very good price and the original was very worn. I then reassemble the alternator and the restoration is complete. - Disclaimer: I am no professional.

On this episode of Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Jonny Lieberman and new cohost Jethro Bovingdon go on the ultimate gearhead road trip in Germany and Austria—from Autobahns with no speed limit to the wild Nürburgring race circuit, and finally a mountain pass that climbs to a stunning glacier. The contenders? Well, it had to be the two iconic German sports cars: the BMW M4 and Porsche 911. The brand-new M4 CS is lighter, more powerful, and more focused, but can it really compete with the brilliant 911 GTS? Watch and find out!

The BMW M4 coupe begs for an open racetrack, sunny weather and a tank full of high-octane petroleum distillates. To deliver motorsports-grade performance, engineers took a holistic approach with this car and its four-door sibling, the M3. They reduced weight, improved aerodynamics and of course installed a race-ready powertrain. But, you can get comparable performance from the more affordable Porsche Cayman or Ford Mustang GT... so should you?

"A high-performance athlete for roads and racetracks, for perfect drifts, high-speed bends and the long straights in between."
They are definitely not playing around with the M4...
