    Since the winter is coming and I am not going to drive the stang for at least 3 months I have enough time to install some mods. These are:
    - A Cervinis 2000 Cobra R style hood
    - A Saleen S-281 Wing
    - A Mach 1000 sound system which I picked up used from someone.

    I hope the Mach system sounds good, If anybody knows about it let me know cuz I bought it without the wiring harness. I don't have a clue how to hook it up yet...

    Here are my plans

    1. Fix the front frame of the stang (slightly pushed back)
    2. Install my MAC equal length headers
    3. Replace my timing chain cover (slight crack & leaking oil)
    4. Replace my EGR (not opening up properly)
    5. Instally my Cobra front bumper and paint bumper + both front fenders

    I know there's something else but I can't think of it right now.

    Get my 88 LX 5.0 Vert in working order. Just a little more wrenching on the motor and it will be good to go.

    3. O/R H pipe - should be here within the next two weeks, right scarface. :thumb:
    4. SLP LMIIs - also sitting in my closet :bunny3:
    5. New Exhaust tips - i cant make up my mind and i dont wanna spend $120 on SLP tips even though they are dead sexy. :'(
    6. New tires - should have been here two weeks ago. :rant:
    7. gauges and A-pillar mount - should be arriving in a few days, already have A/F, waiting on OIL Pressure, and deciding on what other one i should get... :-\
    8. Removal of gay-ass side stickers - whenever i can take it to a body shop, i tried myself but it wasnt working out too great. :dunno:


    thats it for now, im tryin to stop spending money on the car so i can payy off my student loan from this year, and buy a bike during the summer....but those are some hopes and dreams.
