One of the employees used to work for 50Resto and they put a new front spoiler on at no charge for me.

Next to do this year are shocks / struts, complete brake job with new rotors, replace serpentine belt along with tuneup and fuel filter. In the fall I'll do oil change and coolant flush.

I got a "hotwheels logo" badge (from a 2013 Camaro Special Edition) and I'm trying to decide where to put it.
Well I did the Bilstein HD shocks / struts / quad shocks along with an alignment in October.

Today I did the complete brake job with new rotors. https://lmr.com/item/LRS-1125C-K/Mus...otor-Kit-94-04 I went with the Motorcraft pads as about all I do is go to car shows.

In January I'll get the "tuneup" done and coolant flush. After 15 years and 83K miles I guess that I'm good for awhile. It is amazing that the car runs 100% better than before. You don't realize how bad the ride is until you put on new parts.

I follow you on IG and I remember seeing the shots of it with fresh AB paint. Love it!

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

My plan was to bring air intake all back to stock. That was completed last week, the last piece of the puzzle was the intake resonator. Thanks to fellow member JoshMac . I even went back to a Motorcraft Paper Air Filter!

Paint and install the steeda wiper delete caps

Repair passenger side skirt. Hit a rock and it broke that plastic tab underneath that attaches it to the pinch weld. Guess im just going to run a self-tapping sheet metal screw through it...dont know any other way to do it

Install this H3R performance Halon fire extinguisher
Happy to report that I finished everything on this list and much more over the course of the year. It's been a full year all around from mods to maintenance to chance encounters in Mehico.

Well, u.p.s dropped off some new wheels about 3 hours ago...have an appt tomorrow to have them mounted. But for 2019, most likely going to start with the t56 magnum swap when it warms back up. Second gear is starting to make a pretty decent rattle from 1800-2300rpm until it gets some temp in it. I know it won't take much more from me before it goes.

How about you?

Maybe E85 swap and a clutch change. I have a stage 2 in there now and since I don't race it anymore the chatter is annoying.

I wish we still had E85 here. Not really to make any more power, but for knock protection and cleaner emissions. I'd gladly stop and fill up more often.

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

A simple headlight replacement and wiper cowl (OE Ford) made me feel really good about my plans. Watching my IUP center stack trim crumble in my hands, not so much. I had an AC control panel bulb to replace, and I figured I'd give the CD Error fix a try at the same time. Bulb fix done, CD player, still out to lunch. The center stack trim had cracked, but this time decided to break into many un-glue-able parts. I did get a new one, but it's not IUP silver and the paint is on back order from LMR.
And the beat goes on...

Eventually those plastic/rubber parts will all break just from the many heat cycles these southern cars go through. Check the hoses and taped wire looms under the hood. Some peel or break off like they have been on for thousands of years. Hopefully someone will keep making replacement parts for us lifetime owners.

Yeah, you should have sen the fun I had getting the wiper cowl off. Would some off in one fell swoop, it was like trying to catch snowflakes with vise grips.

Re: 2018 Plans for your car.

Started up the car a week and a half ago. Started pulling the driver side valve cover so I can see what the knock is. Hope it's not a rod, but still need to get one bolt on the brake booster off....fingers crossed.
