* I gotta fix my rocking seats, once and for all.
* I'd like to do the sound deadener mod, and clean up my hidden grounds while I'm in there.
* Install Silverstar headlights, and replace a burnt out fog light
* Modify trunk partition so it will stay in place.
* Put more stone at the garage apron, so I can lower the car 1/2" to 1".

Really just nagging stuff, nothing serious. I need to focus more on my home remodeling that I've neglected for over a year.

Will eventually get some new ARH headers and new fully polished CCW classics. It'll all come together when the car is Admiral Blue w/ an Arctic White center stripe.

Dougzilla 10-08-2009 4:47pm

Somr interior bling. Maybe some go parts also

illmac77 10-08-2009 5:00pm

but for me... full detail and if i save up the cash throw in a DD Nav system... that and put gas in it and drive because i live in TX now...

Sneaks 10-08-2009 5:09pm

Fix those dang rocking seats, and sound deadening material. Unless I hit the megamillions Friday, then a Maggie, gears, coilovers.....:drool5:

Sounds like we have the same agenda - including if I hit the Lotto!

Munch 10-08-2009 6:04pm

My winter mod will be taking the Vette out cruising every weekend, I may even stop by the barn once in a while. Aside from that, if I come in to some extra money I'd really like to put an ACI chin spoiler on the car.

Lowcash 10-08-2009 6:56pm

Chip: What no strobe install? :lol:

Brian: I hope the swaybars came with the spreader tool. Sneaks, McLeod and WKMCD all have experience with the Pfadt swaybars. :)


As for my list:

Pfadt Inverted Shocks
New front tires
'Maybe' a new exhaust (my patience with this cutout setup is running really thin).
'Maybe' a Double Din setup
Wait to see what WKMCD is going to tear apart this winter. :crazy:

Oh yeah, those sways are a PIA to get the end links on. Have to be spread just right and the angle has to be perfect. If it isn't, that baby aint going on....no way, no how!

Sean, you know Chip has that new Predator exhaust. Jus sayin........
:D

The Predator exhaust is definitely on my consideration list. If I can't resolve this cutout thing I'm going to sell the this Corsa/QTP setup and go with Predator.

After I get a feel for the Pfadt bars I'm going to sell them. If you can wait a few months you can have them for cheap.

The ones I got are actually the old style bars... guy had had them for 1.5 years in the box. Got a great deal and the only real difference is end-arm desing... doesn't affect functionality/performance, just makes production easier. I've allready test fit my end arms and had no issue getting them on.

You should never hvae to use a spreader per Pfadt's instructions... if anything heating them up a bit would do the trick.

McLeod 10-09-2009 4:36am

Sure Kevin.

Most likely tires for me.

zz4vetteguy 10-09-2009 5:28am

Finally get some rubber for those new wheels that have been sitting in my shed for 3 months.

If things go as planned a set of long tubes, high flows, x-pipe,

Maybe some cosmetic things...

71corv 10-30-2009 6:21pm

Have planned several mods. The first is to paint the headlight bezels body color. The second is to install the oil cooler and make a cover for it in case the oil does not come to temp during the winter.
