I don't have anything planned. We really don't store our cars here.

I need to get my rocker fixed and a CV joint. I'll probably be adding new products to my car that we're working on.

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.
