Just wondering what everyone else has planned for winter mod projects. Mine will be mostly cosmetic this year. Gonna go back to more of a street look. Planning to paint my hood red, do charcoal or silver super snake and rocker stripes, sequential tail lights and a staggered set of 18" anthracite bullitt wheels. With 2 kids, wife and a full time and part time job, we'll see how much I can get accomplished.

My plans are a transmission overhaul with a shift kit and stall, changing from 2.73's to 3.73's, a little bit more front suspension work, and getting tires for my staggered FR500's.

The shift kit, stall and gear should make a nice performance step up.

I have too many different hobbies. Fall I spend on Hunting, Winter, on the snowmobile. Mustang usually gets 0 attention until March.

Shocks and Struts, and a drivers side ball joint. Front brake pads (turn or replace rotors) and starting on the rattly interior.

SN95- In a perfect world it would be sold, but since nobody seems to have any interest in buying it I guess I'll get a magnaflow catback for it, manual boost controller, and get it tuned on 10 pounds so I can break 450rwhp, break the trans, and blow up the stock motor. Lol.

Fox- Currently blown apart for HCI, stall, smoothed engine bay, etc.

Dyno tune, front end alignment, fixing hood latch, some wetsanding/buffing the fresh paint, roll the 1/4's lip, get the interior back together, finish the under-hood fuse box cover, and finish hiding two wire looms under the hood.

fcuk, too much to do.

As much as I can... We'll see how far it gets.

I'd like to go through electrical and injectors to work out final bug. Would also like to swap pulleys to lower boost and increase power.

I also still have a million minor projects to do.

In a perfect world:
New fixed back seats
Deep dish 03 cobra wheels for the rear
Cowl hood

What I'll actually end up doing:
Punch out -5 degrees of camber
Roll front fenders with some textbooks
Body matched mirrors
Bigger and badder rear diffuser
PBR front brakes

Cobra brakes and ss lines, Cobra rack and rack bushings, steering shaft, CC plates, new tires, and need to check the timing. Then it's hopefully paint job time.

Next plans for the 98 are to put a tubular front k-member in with coilovers. Prob gonna be upr. And then drop in the 03 pi motor with prob bassani midlengths. But the 89 needs the motor freshened up and some paint lol. Just had a new baby boy a month ago today and another little boy that is 20 months. Soooo we will see what can get done.

Double din stereo, a 12, and maybe long tubes. However, I might need a TOB before the end of the year so could be clutch too.

Powder coat the chrome wheels I have to a copper. I really dislike chrome, but like my wheel style. Repaint the Saleen calipers with one of those caliper paint kits from American Muscle. Do a complete audio overhaul and get the JL speakers, JL W7, and 4 channel amp installed. And maybe a few small things like aesthetics and stupid crap like replace the splash guards.

Thinking about this color for the wheels...

Just a few things is all she needs. She's a '98 with a full '99 PI engine swap. So my list includes a Nitrous Outlet full kit with 50, 75 and 100 shot incl. PURGE KIT AND Bottle heater and warmer blanket .

Also have to get a tripke A Pillar Gauge pod with Glow Shift black face 10 color elite: Nitrous Pressure, Wideband A/F ratio and Fuel Pressure gauges.

That's all she really needs. ...

Redo the fuel system (sump tank, external fuel pump, braided lines and new rails)

Replace the leaking oil pan and worn out motor mounts.

Maybe the trans mount while I'm at it.

well I was hoping to get it primered and/or painted prior to the cold weather hitting but missed that goal. It gives me more time to finish the body work and get the motor back together, finish polishing the intake and other bits.
