Alright fellas, the temps up here in the Great White North are dropping and it looks like we might only have a few more opportunities to pull the classics out for a drive.
So what do you guys in the snowy places have planned for winter projects.
I have few in the works.
install the magnum manifolds I pulled of a wrecked truck earlier in the year and install a factory style exhaust.
I have most of the parts for this, including new engine mounts to help the manifolds fit.
I will need to connect the manifolds back to the sock style exhaust, but I am sure there is an exhaust shop close that can hook me up (pun intended)
Install the 70 lower grill insert, and some new headlights with integrated turn signals.
Again have the parts just need to fix the insert and paint same and the figure our what needs to be done to install the headlights.
Quick one, replace the glass in my slap stik shifter. Although I will try to fix my console while its out, its snapped in the usual spot (around the shifter).
I may try to reroute the transmission lines back to the factory cooler and remove the aftermarket trans cooler from in front of the rad. I think that is part of the reason my car runs at 210 - 220 most of the time on the highway. Also going with a 5 blade clutch fan (if it fits the shroud) for the aftermarket fixed fan (hopefully the combination for the two cools things down).
I want to refinish my driveshaft...which is a lovely color of rust right now. I saw a great way to soak it in Vinegar in a resto thread.
Other than that maybe a few small things if I am looking for something to fill my time, but nothing major.
I hate the winter, but love the time to work on the car.
