So you are the guy that won the 2.4 billion! 😂Winter time to do (Wish) list:
Install new front suspension parts. ( Have all the parts minus new strut rods )
Install new Zray cross member ( Need to purchase first. )
Convert front brakes from drum to disc. Staying manual. ( Need to purchase )
Install export brace and monte carlo bar. ( Have all the parts )
Install new rear leaf springs, and clean and paint rear end. ( Need to purchase springs )
Install new shocks. ( Need to purchase )
Figure our what wheel and tire size combo to replace the original 14's with. ( This will probably be the hardest decision.)
Replace the lower door hinge on the driver door. ( Need to get one from West Coast Cougar )
Replace the glue in glass with bolt in. ( Need to purchase parts. )
I own and operate a small heating and air company here in North East Tennessee so if the weather stays cold I'm usually busy. So this list may get shortened considerably depending on how busy I am.
I have a heated garage so if I can find the time and the funds I can at least keep whittling away at the list.
What is on your list you want to send out?I have a running list of stuff to do, ranging from cleaning the inside of my cigar lighter socket, to tuning/re-jetting the carb, to a new gauge cluster.
About 50 entries on the list so far, and I'm sure I'll think of more. Some I can handle myself, and some will need to go to the shop.
Don't know how much I'll be able to accomplish in my unheated garage, and once they salt the streets it ain't going to the shop until after a couple spring rains wash that salt away.
But I'll do what I can, and stockpile parts for the rest...
Nothing serious, just a couple things that require strength and/or dexterity.What is on your list you want to send out?
To followup, I got it looking a little better........I've been in basic maintenance mode for a several years, however, I still look to improve those little irritants that I put off. The one I'm looking. into, currently, is rewiring my CD box, Pertronix, and MSD Tach adapter to reduce the wiring mess and create a ""Plug 'N Play"system to by-pass the CD box and run only the Pertronix or a set of points in the event the :sparkie" or the "box" is suspect for ignition failure. I still find value in both, but, we all know the limitations of electronics. I haven't "yet" succumbed to returning to "Points" only, but, don't rule it out. View attachment 867754
