    New power steering gearbox (or the seals again), ORD steering brace, steering stabilizer (ripped it off) and new alternator. All fluids. Getting ready for a road trip in Jan. Other than that it will be napping, eating and playing with the kids.

    I am hoping I can install my cam, gear set, headers, oil pump, new xmsn/tcase adapter, motor mounts, distributor, clean and coat the crossmembers and have it all installed before 3 jan 06. After reading this, it doesnt seem like a lot.

    throwin' on my new GLO D60 diff cover... and I'm gonna fiddle with the front fender/narrowing project a little bit. Also need to pull the tail lights from my tow rig... and clean the new seat I got for it. What I really need to do most of all is clean/organize my garage. Small projects are taking 2x longer than they should because I'm always looking for tools/parts/hardware. ;) Anyway, with all the good sports and crappy family poop I have to do this weekend I doubt that I'll get everything done...

    I'll be trying to decide which body shop will get to remove my rusty bed and front floor pan, replace them with new steel (and a new tailgate too), then repaint the whole thing.
