Ummm.... Finish the shop, replace exhaust system, add wheels, and tires.  Have power steering box rebuilt, then make a long list.....   :cheers:

Alan: Slimey is bought and paid for. I need the space but the buyer is sure different. I told him I needed it out of here by the start of November. I should put it outside and not care I guess but the car deserves better than that. Hard to believe. I love cars more than people, that much I know for sure.

 :pullinghair: I lost the nice warm shop that I had my car in last year. Need to find something soon or it'll be in the cold all winter and not much will get done.

WTF?! I thought that guy was a bud, Murray. You can't get it in the one where you and Andy and I were either? I had a possible spot when I still had the Coronet, but it's in Waterloo and I doubt you could work on the car there. We still on for Friday?

I'm just a bud. His brother-in-law took priority in a 'I'll let you use this but I want to work on my combine in your shop this winter' deal.
Friday for sure!!

The parts for the 'winter' projects are in. It's tooo cold to actually work in the garage in the winter. I wait for early spring. In a couple more weeks I'll get to work.  :working:

I turned my stock gauges into backlit gauges. next is a 113/4" rotor swap and then hopefully a FI set up.

 :canada:  well the weather is warming up in these parts and I am no where near done my project list. I am going to finish up my headlight install and cut my losses at this point. I want to get out and enjoy the car in May.

This has been the busiest winter I have ever had and just have not had time to work on the car.

I am going to try and do the exhuast this summer...I hope.

1. Pull the chunk out of the 8 3/4 and rebuild.
2. Find and fix the trans leak.
3. New tie rod ends, pitman and idler arms
4. Rally gauge cluster (I hope)
5. And then maybe...Vintage A/C

Funny this thread popped back up in April......Made it through the first 3 items and the cluster is almost ready to go in. Also did a steering box, sound deadener, carpet and a stereo. The A/C is going to have to wait for next year.....
