Projects this year?

Unread postby decipha » Thu Jan 28, 2016 10:22 pm

We're only 28 days in, I hope everyone hasnt lost sight of end goals

Tips for building momentum/encouragement to work on vehicles

1) focus on the end result
2) beer is a mood enlightening substance and helps
3) a fellow greaser buddy is a huge push
4) car shows and visiting events/tracks peaks interest
5) break down the big project into smaller projects, that will give you the sense of progress
6) dont let mishaps and unexpected dead ends stop progress, instead jump on another task/project or "make do" with whst you have to work with
7) cut your goals down, instead of doing everything all at once, do it a step at a time

^^Great advice!

For me, I am finishing up the coyote race engine for my black coupe, going to install it and the turbo kit, and the Holley EFI on it, tune and race accordingly. Been years since I was able to race something fast, really looking forward to it.
Red 93 coupe, have the header, turbo, waste gate, blow off valve and other misc pieces. Still to order ebay cold side kit, and Stinger downpipe and midpipe kits. Then start that install. I have 4 42 lb injectors and a pro M blow thru pro tube maf for it, and its already got a gss340 pump. Going to put it on E85, continue to tune the C1A1 bin with BE, run about 10 to 15 lbs of boost, til the injectors max, and stay there for the time being.
Yellow 94 GT, going to put an engine in it and auto trans and just drive it. It's a sweet, clean 28k mile car with black leather interior.

What's everyone else working on?

I had a friend give me his spare 4 valve out of his cobra, Imma rebuild it and do something with it, at the least if anything sell it

I got a couple coyotes as well, I just need some free time and good weather to finish swapping it in one of my supercoupes

I need to do a bunch of body work this year, before I bought my house it had a 6 car carport that katrina blew away, I plan on putting it back up and dumping some coin on paint

I gotta finish the floor in the front room of my house, I had partial carpet and vinyl tile over terrazzo I ripped up last october, its over 800 sq ft so its quite the job

Im kinda torn right now which route I want to go, I can either hold off a year and pay off my house this year, or finish the cars and pay off the house in a couple years, or buy a 2nd house which im considering, or buy one of the new lincolns that matthew mcconaughey keeps advertising

so many options

Working on getting concrete and electricity in my shop, maybe getting a rotating assembly for my F4 weezor. Gonna pick up another project bike, probably my stepdad's XS11. Probably gonna buy another car as well. Thinking very VERY seriously about ordering a nitrous blue RS.
