    Stealth ES 'To Do List' for NG11

    I'm registered for all events this year. In 2007 I won an award for slowest AutoX time of the day. Looking to avoid that this year.

    Anyway so here is my list of stuff to do in the next 44 days.

    1) Paint car stock white, including the ugly black trim.
    2) New rotors, pads and brake fluid. This will keep me from skidding off of the road course - in theory.
    3) Timing belt


    Anyone else going in their NA 3/S? What is your to do list?


    EDIT:

    Allow me to preface this:

    This car was purchased in early 2008 from a board member on the other site and shipped in from Florida - the car had a bra on it and you are about to see why. The previous owner never mentioned any issues with paint, and took pictures making the car look excellent in the classified ad. Well - the car had several issues including a blown driver's side strut, dents, dings and awful missing paint on the front bumper. All mechanical issues with the car have been dealt with, but now it's time for paint.

    BEFORE








    UPDATE:

    AFTER

    I'm hoping to get my Addco sway bars installed before the NG. MY ES placed 3rd in the modified FWD category without them in '09. That, and the dual exhaust that's going on with my RT bumper are the only performance add ons from '09.

    Taking it up the nose, eh?

    That's rough trade.

    Xlnt, plan, btw.

    Idiots, simply by being idiots, seem capable of achieving randomly bad things that are beyond the imaginings of sensible people.

    if you do the timing belt, be sure to do the complete 60k, or at least the tensioner and waterpump

    Always. This will be my 7th timing belt install between three Stealths and one 3000GT.

    You should hot wire your starter off of the ignition and get that thing started! I need some competition in the NA class.

    I am following your thread closely. The RT body kit and sail panels is a dream of mine.
