I plan on doing a PI headswap with some mild cams and Preston's ported exhaust manifolds. I need to install my m8 driveshaft and a 255lph fuel pump, re-clutch the diff, put on my front sport shocks, install my new front and rear sway bar links, and get rid of the t-fitting on my intake manifold, put on my new power antenna and drivers side mirror. If im lucky i might get the exhaust tips cut off and add some rear mufflers. If i some how get rich i will fix the fender, bumper and trunk lid. I also need to buy some lowering springs so i can finish up the suspension. I also am looking for an LTD like my first one to build up and be my weekend hotrod.

I'm gonna address some minor interior things on the SC, fix the exhaust and maybe swap over to the '96/'97 headlights. Other than that I don't see much happening this winter.

No big plans for the bird this winter, but plan on doing a lot of work on my 1976 Jeep Wagoneer. It's eventually gonna be my tow rig so I can bring more projects home.

i just rented a 2 bay garage for the winter no workin outside in the cold anymore:D

i plan on installing the pile of parts ive gatherd for the bird over the past month
body kit, hub swap, pbr calipers, drag bags, etc have em all sittin here.
reroute my exhaust to line up with the body kit and then give it a fresh coat of paint.

on my 70 chevelle i plan on installing a big brake kit, install some new heads with a smaller cc (bump up the comprssion), install a t-56 6 speed (automatic in this car is no fun;)) covens classics gauges, and then probiby gonna paint it candy red with black stripes and give it 10 coats of clear.

but if this project spirals out of controll like my bird did the list will surely grow

Car-wise, I'm gonna start looking into some stuff to turn it into a Sport clone (wheels, grill, find something to replace the chrome bumper trim, door handles, some suspension goodies)

Otherwise, building a workbench in the spare bedroom and getting some stuff done with my other hobby.

3.27 Trac-Loc, rear SC swaybar, install shock tower brace (thanks for all 3 Ron!), re-install audio system (won't fit the way it is with the brace) and paint touch ups. Time and money depending, 99+ trans w/ JMod and Marauder TC.

Probably just put a whole new exhaust system on it. It's kinda illegal right now, lol.
