I'll go first...

Mechanically, I intended and successfully completed the exhaust. The intake is next.

Cosmetically, window tints was a big one, the new head unit and speakers...now I gotta do the minor rust repair, and spot paint, with near match paint.

For now...

Well, as you know I just put your 7 band Eq. stereo in my car, replacing an aftermarket unit. I would have to say to every bonnie owner who'* car came with an aftermarket unit, and they think it sounds crappy... GET THE FACTORY UNIT, it is like 100x better now that I have the factory unit in. Anyway that'* just my $118

This year sometime I'd like to get that adjustable coil over kit at DP. Longterm I hope to get a engine build or swap in a bigger, badder engine. I'd like to see my car run a mid to low 14 quarter.
As for cosmetic changes I don't think I'm going to do anything.

All I have done so far is a couple of very minor cosmetic changes...a chrome license plate frame, and one of those little chrome fishes (ICTHUS) and a small flag decal in the rear window. These were just quick, easy and cheap so I started there.

Here'* my plan...
In a couple weeks I will be:
~installing a 180 degree thermostat
~plasma xenon gas headlights and foglights (blue tint)
~adjusting the supercharger to boost sooner (I had a post from here describing it, but I lost it somehow...if someone remembers it and can find it, it will help me out a lot...it was something about moving a bolt)
~fixing a new dent in the door

In the near future (within one year) I will be:
~installing a tranny cooler
~putting in new copper tipped spark plugs (possibly one heat range cooler...haven't decided)
~changing to Taylor wires (red to match the lettering on the engine cover)
~putting in a Cold Air Intake (real kind, with heat shield) and K&N cone filter
~changing to ceramic brake pads and slotted rotors
~putting in a 3.4 SC pulley
~changing all interior lights, plate lights and trunk light to a pale blue (maybe with gels)

In the distant (dreaming) future I may be:
~getting a better exaust system (not for sound but for power)
~switching to High Intensity Discharge headlamps
~putting in angel eyes fog lamps
~getting a light tint all around (whatever the legal limit is in NH)
~getting 19 or 20 inch wheels and very low profile tires
~installing a performance chip to compensate for whatever I've done
~getting a whole new sound system with MP3 playback capability (changer maybe)
~and maybe one day a custom paint job (metallic...maybe a platinum color)

I'm sure I'll get other ideas here in the furture, but as it stands now, this will complete my favorite project.
