So what's your winter project(s)?

Figured I'd start a thread while a lot of us are in the planning stages.

Nova's mostly got to sit until warmer weather (too cold for paint), but in the meantime I'm going to start working on some of the interior parts that need attention. All of that gold/green has to go. And the hacked instrument bezel needs some attention.

What do you guys have going on?

I guess I will work on eating over the winter.
Maybe get at the Suburban frame swap. And after that I think I want to start doing the cab floor in the pickup

Since my car is just a rolling shell, I'm planning on bending up and installing my own roll cage. I'd also like to plan out a fuel cell, which I plan on making myself as well.

I have to finish assembling the motor for my truck so I can install that in the spring. Plus I have some work that absolutely has to be done before the spring. I'm tired of it looming over my head.

For those who have not been a part of it, check out the build thread below. Plenty of laughs and even more helpful info for a ton of stuff in there from a handful of member.

My pops is still plugging away on the 81 TTA. He is making some good progress and would say he is about 80% of the way ready for paint. I think it is going to come out really nice.





As for my bird, I'm likely going to replace the clutch hydraulics (new master and slave). I have my eye on the tick master cylinder to replace the Wilwood that came with the McLeod street twin setup. I would also like to get a new front brake system on the car. The Sam Strano kit looks great but will require me to get larger drag front runners for track days.

^^Nice progress!

I am currently neck deep in fuel & brakes lines and a new fuel tank in the truck. Fun times.

The Z is just getting a lot of bolts tightened and things cleaned.

T56 swap over the winter, new seats waiting go in, replacing the windshield, re-tint, and finally putting the Kenwood DD in this car.

Just gotta find the time/energy now to start the installs.

I'm in the middle of adding a northwest fab black box underdrive and new driveshafts to my jeep truck. After that, my 92 can get back in the garage so I can finish putting the nose back together and finish putting the interior back in, then its for sale...

If time allows I might blow the dust off my 86, been sitting for a couple years now.

Which kenwood, i had a dnx570 and it was a total piece. Will never buy kenwood again after that catastrophe.

We put the aux fuel cell in before our island rental, so aside from getting the right jets, i dont habe really anything this winter. Need new helmet cause mine expired though.

So putting more parts on the shelf or actually installing them on the car?

It's like a festivus miracle!

.
Same one that was in my last car; DNX7120 I believe. Pulled it out of the old car and never installed it in this new one.

It's old tech though, and I'm debating going to something newer though. We'll see how I feel after it's in.

Had water past the motor mounts after the driveshaft seal failed last time it was out. Insurance is paying for new motor mounts, re-alignment, new electronics, etc. so I don't have any plans of my own Will probably end up throwing in a more aggressive tune.
