    I don't know about the rest of you guys buying looking forward to doing some work on my car this winter. I'm planning on stripping the roof to bare metal on my 51 Chevy doing the body work on that as well as the dash respraying the blue and flaking the piss out of them. Also I'm hoping to get the interior done as well. What are the rest of you guys got planned?

    I am hoping to replace the the headliner, front and rear glass rubber and repaint the roof and white strip on my Edsel this winter. Plus build an 8.5 GM rear end for my OT Camaro.

    Usually when the snow starts flying I quit working on hot rod stuff and get into 4x4 mode.

    I will probably put my model A coupe and 50 shoebox coupe aside for a while this winter and get rolling on my next strange 4x4... a 1959 land rover that I am going to run a v8 in and upgrade the drivetrain. I plan to build a sort of sleeper that is still a fully functional 4x4.

  17. I've just started on my winter project, something to do during the down times on the Galaxie. It's a 52 Ford panel. going to try to get the Jag IFS and IRS under it and the engine mounted.

    We've got one more cruise I wanna do, about a 200 miler this Saturday. Sunday I'll start blowing my Plymouth apart for paint and interior. I Traded for it back in April and I've been chomping at the bit all summer to start on it, but didn't want to take it off the road. Well, that and it was 100 degrees here most of the summer.

    It's a good solid car but best myself and the previous owner can figure it was put together about 1991 and it shows.

    Looks OK now but the paint's 20 footer - I'm thinking shiny black but we'll see what the body looks like under the multiple coats of enamel paint it has on it now. Got a few minor mechanical tweeks to do but over all it's pretty sound. Speaking of sound, I'd like to replace theturbo mufflers with some Porters or Smitthys.

    The interior is also dated - gotta replace the gray tweed headliner and trim, lose the overhead console, replace the bucket seats with a custom made bench seat, replace the wooden dash with the repop 34 Ford dash my buddy SamF gave me.

  28. I have a model T project for this winter if it does not get way too cold like last year.No heater in my shop and when it stays in low 20`s at night and does not get out of 30`s during the day for weeks at a time,I just stay in house.Seems like every winter gets colder here in south carolina.
    I love the hot humid summers,but cannot stand the winter.Well,I guess I have to stand it,but I do not have to like it:D
