    How long is the "to do" list getting on your car(s)?

    I can't sleep, so I thought I'd ask...

    On my 94 I am up to:
    Swap ATX for MTX (MTX arriving tomorrow)(today,lol)
    Brakes
    Fix various nitrous problems caused by a shitty install
    Fuel pressure cutoff for nitrous
    RPM window for nitrous
    purge solenoid
    possibly a progressive nitrous controller
    Mount the Data logger where I can see it
    Strut brace
    Get a 4.5" filter so I can finally install my MAF adapter
    Install test pipe...

    On my 2 day old Stealth, it's already:
    Polish faded paint (done)
    small windshield chip
    Oil/filter
    tune up
    alignment
    Brakes
    2nd gear synchro
    Find Trans leak and fix
    Find oil leak and fix
    Rearview mirror
    Stereo
    Stereo antenna
    Shifter boot ring
    Radar detector mount and wiring
    Ash tray
    Connect washer nozzles and hope they work
    99 front bumper
    Race a 95 Mustang GT

    (I am probably forgetting crap, but I'm tired now that it's time to get up... LMAO)

    I haven't really been able to work on my car in about 4 years, only little minor stuff. I have some new gauges to put in, I need to replace the steering rack, I should probably drop the tranny to look at my clutch, I've got about 30k on a SBC DXD-F, it's probably overdue for replacement, but it still holds power ok. I also need to fix a leak in the AC somewhere. I also bought a billet TC and 300M output shaft, never installed them. Hopefully I'll be able to tackle some of this stuff soon, especially the AC, as it makes the car undriveable in the TX heat.

    Well, gonna do the 120K when I lay her up for the winter; probably change out the factory stereo, recover the seats, etc.

    I'm really lucky that the stuff I want to do (apart from the 120K) is elective - I much prefer to putter with the car - doing things like solving the slight rattle emanating from my hatch trim.

    One of the tougher things is keeping my wife at bay when she gets insistent about painting the car - the front-end sheet-metal has a liberal sprinkling of stone chips.

    My secret "plan" is to deal with a very slight leakage at the rear crank seal next year, so I can put a heavier clutch in, but pull the engine to do "some detail work" and seriously contempate a color change rather than leave it Firestorm Red - the color is too typical.

    Somewhere along the line maybe I'll fix the vent covers.
