Default Anybody planning Mods over the winter?

Looking for a new set of wheels for mine. Might break down and put the H/C/I package I have on too. Anybody else?

Not much really - I have a bunch of really small odds and ends that I never wrapped up from previous projects. Seems like every year I tear something down in the spring that ends up with the car on jackstands for a month. For 2017 I plan on just tying up small loose ends and details, and driving it!

I would like to get a TA relocation crossmember for the stock TA, and to get some new LCA's and possibly a panhard for the rear end as it feels a little squirrely. Those are a few hour install (famous last words, right?)

I took advantage of one of the sponsor's sales, and got some SFC's for my wife's convertible. Other than that, neither car will see anything new.

SFC's are without a doubt the best mod for 4th gen verts.

I bought z06 wheels, getting some radials for the car, ordered a 3 inch cowl hood, and lastly some black housing headlights, all cosmetics this winter as last it was performance, should be exciting.

I'm hoping so, I have been trying to get here to do them for over a year, and then when we were able to get a set brand new for less then $200 buck through the sales a couple of weeks ago, it just really made some sense. They arrived yesterday, and I can't wait to get them on there. Pretty busy right now with the holidays, so it might be after the first of the year, but they look great.

I would like to put the camaro's wheels on my S-10 and find a set of wheels for the camaro,I would like to go wider all around. I have so many things I want to do to the camaro. I have SFC,STB,sitting in the garage. I also need to fix the Y pipe(hangs to low) so I can do shocks/springs to lower it. Thats just the small list.

Pioneer double din h/u,amp b/u camera & speakers. As soon as spring hits my plan is a panhard bar & torque arm.

The sfc's made a huge difference when I did them.

Going the full Strano package on my 2000 ragtop this Winter.
Strano springs and sway bars, plus Koni 4/4. I also have a 3-point SFC to put on as well.
