Not 100% sure if I'll be attending this year or not. This list is the reason why.

New Cat
New injectors
New starter or NSS not sure which yet
New fuel pump
New steering
New shocks
New Alternator
front control arms need to be rebuilt

No money to do any of it...

I guess I will play since I got the old boy to pass smog with flying colors:

New roof/figure out how to get a windshield into mangled A pillars with huge gaps
Fit/mount new skins
New hood
Paint (Spencer is in charge of that)
Stop/fix the cracks in the steering box area
New steering linkage
Mount the Liquid Iron front plates (they look pretty bling)
Fix fuel pump issue
tear down/prep
If I get time buy & install seat heaters since I am getting to be an old man

Josh that hatch would be much appreciated. If it makes it easier for you, I only would need from the bottom of the rear widow down (thinking of making it into a "tailgate")

Oil change, balance/rotate the tires, remove sagging headliner material, and clean the inside is the extent of my things done.
