1 1/2 months left, whats left on your car list to get ready?

Unread post by Nightmare » Tue Apr 24, 2012 10:47 am

So we have a little more than a month and a half left, and I am going through the list of things I need to do yet...


Car stuff:
1) Install new flywheel, adjuster, quadrent, and cable.
2) inspect throw out bearing, clutch.
3) Replace all 8 coils
4) Change out fuel filter
5) Install new Fog Lamps
6) Check Alternator
7) Check Coolant
8) Possible Retune?
9) Oil Change

Stuff not car part related:
1) check batteries in walkie talkie
2) Get GPS updated
3) get in touch with RNA members who offered to help with engagement photos
4) Install stickers

Last years Rally I over prepped, and I have everything else that I need for this rally already.....Might look into getting a go pro or something like that, but we will see...

Install Heads, Intake, Throttlebody, SD tune, Clutch, Pressure Plate, Flywheel and New f-body slave. Should be done this by end of this week. Then it will be time to figure out what is going on the Rally and pack it in to the huge trunk of the GTO with the full size spare..... Oh then decals.

The following are at the shop right now being installed.
1) Steeda Underdrive Pulleys
2) Moroso Coolant Expansion Tank
3) Moroso Power Steering Tank

I'll be taking the car straight to my folks tonight to put it up on jackstands and paint the calipers and rotors, then I should be about done with the car until the decals come.

I need to figure out a decent handheld cb or walkie talkie and develop a better cupholder as Ford really didn't design the placement well for a manual.

1.) Finish sanding and painting the car.
2.) Fix oil pressure problem (no idea what it is lol)
3.) Get A/C parts and get them installed. No way are we not having A/C this year.
4.) Get e"essential" rally car equiptment ;)

Things I'd like to do:
1.) Re-cover dash and seats that are falling apart.
2.) Win the lottery and buy a Ferrari.

We'll see how this all goes. Everyone here is giving me grief because only half of the car is sanded down!

That month and a half can't come fast enough. I seriously need a vacation!

I still have to get the new suspension installed, an alignment, a new steering rack, refresh the window tint and possibly an oil change... I'm sure I will have overlooked something and scramble to get it done but it's all part of the fun!
