Winter is upon us and I have a few tasks ahead of me for the winter; tracking down the gas leak and re-assessing the brake system to make sure that it will be solid for the track next year. Going to look into new AP racing 2 piece rotors for the front. I absolutely need to find an off the shelf solution for rotors.

Im also having issues with 2nd gear synchros so I will need to grab a spare trans (hopefully with LSD) to act as a spare if something happens and I lose second.

There is one big surprise that (finances willing) I can get done this winter. Its an idea I have had for the past while that is closer to fruition and will hopefully be another "one of a kind" piece on the car. Im REAAALY excited about it and how it will turn out.

Winter list:
Fuel tank/lines
Brakes
Transmission
Surprise

its coooooold out.

got a couple things done over the holiday time.

First of them being the passing along of the RECARO confetti's

last pic of them before I ripped them out


sad wave frown.gif but they have gone to a very good (and pretty local to me) home



then went seat fitting/shopping



Also, my Braille battery is shot. Ive had it about 4 years now so thats not too bad but it adds another cost to the winter push




the surprise is in full effect and the process is in motion. im friggin excited

slowly.
All I did was install a seat, jack the car up and take 2 of the wheels off lol.

Everything Ive ordered is on backorder so Im just waiting. Dont want to spend more money until these parts come in.

Also trying to stay on track with buying what I need for this year rather than what I want.

lol, I left a note on your car at home depot last week. Did it hold up in the rain?

The cost kind of varies. I supplied the 1st shop with the mufflers and v-band connections and that was about $1200 for a header back. I then had the rear section re-done for a few hundred.
