I got a lot done this winter and a few projects done this spring.

I remember we posted our lists a while back and was wondering where everyone was at?

I still have;
Rockers, push rods, springs.
Solid engine mount.
Exhaust straight pipe.
Replace cracked windshield.
Tranny flush.
Top engine clean.
Drivers side heat...prolly wait till the fall.

I finished the Tips, ordered the Iridium plugs and new purple Taylor 8mm wires, along w/ the MSD coils. That'* really all so far.

But next project is..
1) slotted rotors
2) replace the stock resinator w/ a Cherry Bomb glass pack
3) upgrade my speakers (too much "beautiful people" waaay too loud!)
4) upgrade the Air induction, ie remove MAF screen and install a new induction

Well, I plan to thoroughly clean my car up. After that is done. I will be installing a CAI, making a Ram Air system, Changing pully from 2.5 to a 2.2, and then getting a catback exhaust installed. O ya, and some new tires, but not sure which ones to get.

I thought the stain was set and couldnt get it out but I bought a can of Turtle Wax "Power Out" carpet cleaner......bam stain was gone and carpet was cleaner than the rest of the car. Finnished the rest of the carpets and I still have a half a can.

I think I paid $9 at canadian tire so I would think you could get it cheaper in the states?
