    Install capret, seat, center console. Bleed Brakes. Get new tires mounted. Re-Install Grill. Install Speedometer.

    Then drive it 150 miles non-stop as a shakedown run after all the new parts have been installed.... 39 days!!!!

      Finish the AC lines/mount the condensor, finish the trans tunnel, weld in the shock tower delete panels, fab the pedals, modify floor to get the seats lower, mount the seats...

      Nevermind, just got a new pair of PS2's mounted on the back of the V wagon. A good detailing and an oil change and it's good to go.

        Driving a late model GTO this year, I'm low maintenence. Oil change, new tires, and turn the brakes. There's a little pulse in the pedal.

              So far I have the following left:

              1- Replace front calipers, rubber lines & pads

              2- Check/Pack front wheel bearings

              3- Get Dash lights operational

              4- Get Gas gauge functional

              5- Get Speed-o-gear for 3.00 gears

              6- Get Fan Shroud & figure out how to install on aftermarket radiator

              7- Get Transmission Hard Lines from FineLines, has rubber hoses & I don't trust them

              8- Decide if I am leaving the electric Mallory fuel pump or stick a mechanical one on.

              9- Get Fuel Line away from headers/mufflers, routed really close & mufflers can shake & hit

              10- Steering shaft coupler loose, need to replace

              11- Swap drag shocks for conventional

              12- Windshield wiper motor needs installed & figure out if wiper wiring harness & switch are any good

              13- Find some lock rods that go from tumbler to latch in the doors

              14- Get door panels installed, got to get locks on

              15- Front end alignment, been playing with torsions on height, I am sure itís off now

              16- Get tires balanced

              17- Get a spare tire

              18- Find Front sway bar & get new bushings & links

                I'm like you Diane, newer car and all I ever needed was an oil change. Not this year, my rental car got new tires and I need to get alignment, oil change before and after I get back..Then I'm good..

                    Might be tough for Rett, sounds like he isn't home to much. Such a jet setter

                    Grancuda, you won't need a spare tire, probably won't have room for it. See I just took one thing off your list to do!

                          I have to finish redoing my headlight retrofits, install my Killer Chiller unit and get some new tires on. Other than that, It will need a good wash, wax and full detail before getting packed up for the 1300 mile trip to Arlington.
