dangit. I've had my SC for a year more than you Matt and suddenly... you're going to have a much faster red SC than I do!

Well, at least I can argue that I had it first!

Mod list ..

Within the next couple months I plan to ..

Buy a more powerful Welder and Plasma cutter ( maybe just the welder for now )
Finish SWB Mark VIII ( or shorten it more, make it convertible .. undecided till I finish the other cars )
Install Mark VIII front air struts already modified for Liz's bird.
Install a set of 8 SMC 10mm Valves into Liz's bird for fully independant control of air suspension ( picking those up, plus a bunch of fittings for only $50 next week )
Clear 97 Corner marker's for Liz's bird.
Finish Fiberglassing Cervinis 93 hood for 97 headlights on Liz's bird. ( going to make a mold off a 94 hood first to match the curve first )
Install Fully electric sliding sunroof from Mark VIII into Liz's bird ( sitting in garage )
Take the stereo system out of my Bird and put it into my Chevy Blazer.
Install front air suspension into Blazer ( Parts already ordered, Slam specialties is on back order thats whats taking me so long )
Give my Jet-ski a tune up and pull the debris out of the intake.
Write a tech article for everything Ive been doing for the last 6 months =)
I may not finish everything by summer, but the air suspension will be completely done by spring.
Cement the dirt sides of my driveway so I can fit more cars.
I plan to start driving my bird again soon, then I may consider making a few modifications but the only one I really want is a 5 speed transmission.
And finally .. help all of my buddies with their projects ( 2 link rear suspension for Chevy S10, Rebuild 4.3 engine with busted rod, install front clip for a 64 Ford truck with 351 Cleveland and re-locate the gas tank ... )
I usually finish one project a week, depending on how much is involved.

And for 96-3.8LX, if you take your side molding off, leave it smooth, otherwise dont take the 96 sides off.

i like the looks of them off on the pre 96 models, but ive never seen a 96-7 model with smooth sides. the front and rear bumper covers have the contour in them that the 94-5 side strip things would match perfectly. just wanted some opinions, thanks :)
