So how big is everyone's list and have you started yet ?

Got a few transmission things niggling .. So that's on my case ..

Maybe my loom might get made , got my second set of dark greens to get flow checked and cleaned ..

Hopefully my year for some power upgrade !!

id really love to get the bodywork i want doing on mine sorted but just don't think thats in the budget now so I'm going to concentrate on sorting the little niggles referring the c pillars and headlining and the passenger door speaker isn't working just to get everything as it should be. also want to get something done with the handling so when its out the garage when the weather cheers up new lower arms and polybushes, track rod ends and get it four wheel aligned

then clean it and get to as many shows as i can on the srsc stand!

honestly if you dont whant to sell, and can keep it, I would left it in the garage... Just owning one is enough many times, so if sell and regret, the serch for a good replacment can be hard nowadays...
