-Try and fix the two spots in the bottom rear corner of the rear doors where they are down to bare metal. Snow/ice builds up down there, and I think the paint came off from ice getting kicked off. I fixed them this fall with rattle can primer and paint, but I see one side has already flaked off. Grr.
-Springtime polish/wax
-Decide if I want to take a couple days off this spring/summer to change the UIM and gaskets before they fail (nothing yet as I cross my fingers). Then if I do that, I'm thinking I'll change the valve cover gaskets (a little oil leaking) which while I'm back there making room I might as well change the plugs/wires.

~ Port match LIM
~ Pull EMs, check for smaller cracks, repair and mild smoothing
~ Replace fuel pump/tank
~ Install 2.2" pulley
~ Install HD tranny cooler
~ Jet Stage II chip
~ Intense 180* drilled thermo
~ Dyno.

Figure this should all be done by the end of July.

Tint, plugs, full detail, possibly aluminum UIM, small sub. More importantly is the work that needs to get done on the Mustang. Unfortunately I think my Spring is going to be pretty packed with 19 credit hours...

Soon to be done, if it ever gets even remotely warm would be:

Camshaft carrier cover gaskets, consisting of the outer gaskets, spark plug tube seals(what i think is leaking) and several other little o-rings and such...not looking forward to it at all.


Then I think Im going to hop on the Liquid Glass bandwagon.

I also had some sort of ABS/TCS malfunction the other day, but it hasnt come back since, so Im hoping it was just a fluke.

Probably another transmission fluid change is in order as well.
