Winter Projects Anyone?

It's that time again. People stop posting because its too damn cold outside to do anything with your car. Well this is the season for dreaming, buying, planning, plotting, etc. So what is your plan?

Mine:
Get a 93 mark viii output shaft and finish my built AODW that will contain:
93 mark viii output shaft
TCI input shaft
extra clutches and discs
wide ratio planetary set
B&M deep pan
4x4 deep sump filter
Lentech Street Terminator Valvebody (expensive!!!! wish I spent the extra on transbrake)
9.5" Art Carr eBay converter, rebuilt by Alan Brown-3200stall non lockup.
Tru-Cool 40k gvw cooler (BIG!)


I also hope to get all the stuff to do the rear differential. I have an aluminum pumpkin, just need to get the 3.73's and locking diff. I also have mn12perf's 'wheel-hop eliminator kit' which has the rear pinion brace, all poly bushings, including the tranny mount and crossmember bushings, aluminum lower control arms, and SC half-shafts.

So whats everyone else got in store?

I've got a suspension rebuild planned for Christmas.

Moog Performance UCAs
Addco 1 1/4 Rear Swaybar w/shorter endlinks
New poly bushings for the front swaybar
Cobra convert Bilstein Shocks in the rear

I'm still waiting on the Votgland 3/4 drop springs from SCP - I ordered 2 weeks ago and counting - I guess they're on back order?

Still undecided about the front Shocks debating between the 96/97 Sport shocks and waiting on a quote on the Vogtland Shocks. I'm interested in the Vogtland shocks to match the springs. Anybody have any experience with them - the vogtland shocks that is? I'm open to suggestions.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

Hell yea thats what I plan on doing. As well as a full front end rebuild, you know... all the suspension parts. Nothing fancy, just enough to get me through another summer worth of road trips.

Edit: Oh yea I put 1500 miles a month on my car so lots of oil changes too. lol
