My plans are even easy.

Come out of the winter w/o taking the car off the road and be even faster.

Would glue act as an insulator and not transfer heat effectively? Would soldering or welding them on be more effective? I am not being critical just curious.

As for me I have a shift kit to install and new tires. Other items include not driving the Bonny in the snow at all. Keeping it out of the rain is also high on my priority list. We shall see on the last two items.

Coolant flush and fill.
Winter-friendly tires.
Under oil.

Hoping Old Man Winter is kind to the rest of the car!!

Oh yeah: Frequent trips to Mr. Quick Car Wash to keep the salt and sand at a minimum.

I hate having to subject my car to Ontario winters :(

Other than that, I will hope for nice days where I can drive it like I stole it
