Well it's getting to be that time again. it's been cold and its only a matter of weeks if not days till the snow starts flying.

what is on your to do list for this winter? any major builds? or fixing anything? or just gonna rub the car down with a diper? picking up any cool parts?

I have to figure out what's making noise, my trans or rear end, and starting my projector headlight retrofit.

Partial kitchen remodel, wooden boat restoration commenced on Saturday.

240 is going to sit under a cover in the corner of the garage where my wrx sat last winter. I will occasionally fart on it. Maybe buy some parts for it this winter if fundage allows.

-Swapping from 4 lug to 5 lug.
-Installing new set of rims with new 255/40/17 Kuhmo XS's for next race season.
-Full 300ZX brake swap (maybe just fronts, only get fade on certain tracks, and only in front)
-SS brake lines
-Carbotech pads with some Motul or ATE fluid.
-Roll and pull fenders to fit the new meats.
-Adjust ride height till roll center says NO MOAR.
-Re-corner weight.
-Re-align with more camber in front (tire temps still super hot outside).

Car will just sit under car cover though. Last track day was yesterday at USAIR, no moar racing. sad day.

Make Money to buy more parts. Clean up vacuum hoses and wiring in engine bay. Fix Trunk release(Thanks Nick and Liz for the cable). Clean interior. Track down LSD. Buy seats hopefully. And have minor rust fixed and body painted. Maybe a little to ambitious though. We'll see.

Recently got a couple puppies, going to get the mt.cur going in agility and the border/ACD mix doing some obedience work.

remodeling the entryway, painting the staircase to coordinate with the new basement floor

keep an eye out for the perfect new home, more land and more sheds and outbuildings for all the cars and 8N tractors.

Probably suspension/fender/wheel setup work. It's alot of work (for wheel noob like me) to get a satisfactory setup.

if it's anything like that one, i would tell you to do the same. 240's are pretty easy to find if you have patience and have some cash, no reason to put that much time and effort into one unless it's got some sort of sentimental ties to it or if thats the one style you've always wanted.
