    Now is the time to get started. I have nothing to do this year other than keep it running till then.
    I may paint it. Heck if I have time I may fix the seats too.
    Time to clean up the engine bay!

    1E = Get the car out of the body shop, install the IRS kit, and the cobra front brake calipers and rotors. New springs need to be put in and the exhaust has to be done to accomodate the IRS kit.

    4E = clean the interior up, and find a drivers side marker light. Put a new exhaust on it.

    1C = car needs miracle or a lot more time than we have before the reunion.
