Restore the steering column.
Remove gauge cluster and send away for tune-up. Clock doesn't work, tach is inaccurate and this summer the speedometer acted up for a bit so I'll have that checked out too.
Replace dash bezels.
Finish restoring the heater control plate that I took out two years ago.
Restore or replace trunk and rear quarter trim.
Replace antenna and mounting hardware.
Do a little detailing in the engine bay.


Wow some great projects going on this winter!!

Murray, do you have the PDF document that shows the rebuild process for the steering column. IF not let me know I will send it to you.

I apparently have to add one more project to my list. 

Went to pull the car out of the garage last weekend, and there is a small green puddle under it...and evidence that it was spraying fluid all over the front of the engine.  Looks like I have a leak somewhere and I will need to find it!  Did not seem to show up while it idled away in the drive way, but I know its there.  Looks like my driving season is over.

I wouldn't mind that PDF as well. I have tons of winter projects on mine lol. So far it is stripped to bare metal inside, now working on removing panels outside to clean the inner structure and see what panels I need to order.

Some stitching is letting go on my drivers seat. Sent an email to legend yesterday inquiring about a new seat cover and new foam for both front seats. I hope they will sell just the drivers seat cover not the whole set? The rest of the interior is like new.

I got a new TruTrac put in the rear this spring so I can lay two stripes again,  :burnout: but I need to rebuild the spare four speed I have and get it installed along with a new clutch disc and throwout bearing as 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are not going well under high rev load. I also need new tires and would like to change the wheels also but we`ll see how much I can afford.

Only plan right now for the Cuda is to remove the grille and repaint it. Laid off work so money is tite this year. Replace clutch and pressure plate in the Dart and maybe do some body work and repainting on nephews Jeep Cherokee  :faint:

Well:  The project is here. Plan is to flip this one and maybe a few other non-traditional Mopars to get up some cash to get into another Challenger. However I am kind of taking a shine to it and may add some boost while screwing it together.
