Whats on your WINTER, "To Do" list?
Living in the MotorCity it's a given that our driving season (if you keep your car out of most elements) is a bit limited so try not to take on any projects on the car that will involve it being off the road for more than a few rainy days and of course any must do fix. I look at the fall/winter as time for the "To Do List". so far mine is after topping off to 3/4 tank with Torco and putting it on rollers in the barn...
Start once a week and run up to temp (165 thermo)
1.) rewire stereo and amp and stiffen mounts (done this weekend).
2.) Replace wooden dash insert with higher quality aluminum backed one.
3.) Purchase posi unit for the series 2 12 bolt A-body rear end i got a deal on a few years ago (need to have discussion on units and gearing, narrowing).
4.) Build and install said rear end.
5.) Install new boxed or round adjustable rear end components.
6.) Flush and change oil and trans fluid, check all others.
7.) Check ALL bolts when working on any area.
8.) Replace body to frame dampeners (least favorite)
9.) Install new correct RA exhaust manifold gaskets after burning the originals to the fiberglass on the dyno (got away with the multi use layered aluminum ones when i was in a hurry to get it back on the road but have a few exhaust leaks that popped up).
I'm sure ill be asking lots of questions i have probably asked in the past as my memory is for crap since falling 30' off a roof 3 years ago.
Fell free to add your List, i envy you guys that get to enjoy your cars 10-12 months a year.
