    Mines still off for at least 3 more weeks, I cant wait though!

    I put on cobra brakes front and rear, and just before I parked it my new suspension. I got lazy the spring is sneaking up on me, I had a lot more of little things planned, like play around with my custom sub box and a few other little things. Mabye I can squeeze some time together and getter done.

    Well, my plans are to finish up my H/C/I install, which I am literally like a bolt set and a pulley installer away from completeing. I get paid Wednesday so hopefully I'll be done on Friday!! ;D ;D I am so psyched guys, I havent heard my car start since last March!

    After that Im going to try my hand at making a fiberglass sub box for my trunk. Simple boxy design, never tried making a box before but Ive used body filler and fiberglass before.

    Then if I have time Bullitt Suspension Kit! :D

    What bothers me the most is when you check the weather and its supposed to be nice the next week or so, so you wash your car. Go to town on it. Then the weatherman ends up being wrong and it rains the next day. :rant:

    Mine is off the road until spring. I usually just detail it while it is in storage. Maybe change the rear end gear oil. I only drive it when it's nice out. Mods have to wait until the car is paid off. Until then I am just going to enjoy it.

    I can't say mines off the road because of winter, the weather stays pretty nice over here, but i'm planning to put her back on the road by the end of spring. I just have to reinstall the tranny, prep it, paint it and put her back together. shit, I haven't heard my car start for over 2 years now :'(.

    I was thinking of that. I've never really done a "write-up" before. I will definitely be able to give a play by play on lowering the rear-end and taking that out, but I'm not sure I'll be much help with the actual install of the axles, gears, etc. I'll give it a shot nonetheless :)
