If you could wish for three things for Christmas related to your car on the hobby what would it be?  Which would be your number one?

Front brake upgrade. - My Number 1
Leaks fixed so I can finish the interior.  
New modern looking bright white headlights

I could keep going but I will stop there.

Easy -

1 - 700-R4 with a slap shifter Smile just 'cause they're cool

2 - Fire engine red paint job with flat black reflective stripe (like the shape on the SE)

3 - New exhaust - medium length headers and side pipes 'cause I still think it's 1977

4 - A full tank of gas, for everyone.

Those are nice. I think the ones I want are from 79 maybe? They look a little more like the ones you have.

I've debated that front clip but think I'd rather keep the steel fenders and just get the nose in fiberglass. My fenders aren't that heavy anyway since I don't have the stock inner wheel wells and since I cut them out a little bit. Bad thing is, just the nose by itself is still 700 bucks. :/

Plus you need a "glass" hood, as you can't mount a heavy steel hood to fiberglass.

That too...if you do the fenders. yes. I like my steel though. The doors are somewhat of a pain as it is. Always having to tell people not to lean on them and whatnot.

Do you have a plastic sleeve over your door striker?  My door rattled for years.  I saw it mentioned here to go to the "help" section and buy small plastic striker sleeves (the application says ford bronco) and install them.  I tried (they were real cheap, less than $5.00) and no more rattle.

That's actually made by Dakota Digital. Phoenix, like OPGI and others, only resells it. DD makes nice stuff, albeit expensive, but it's going to be a loonnnnggg time before they get around to us. Probably about the same time the Sabres win the Cup.

1) Install the aeromotive fuel pressure regulator I ran out of time on this fall with return line back to tank.
2) Fix fuel gauge (both wire are grounding out at tank right now so no gauge)
3) Hook up AC lines and charge system.
4) Willwood break upgrade but keeping 15" wheels as I like old school look.

Then drive drive drive it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Elco project likely wishes I would get going on color sanding & buffing, but it ain't gonna happen in this cold weather.......
That clear coat should be plenty hard & cured by next spring !

I think I should have wished for bigger things now after seeing some of these. lol.

It would be awesome to have a bolt in new gauge cluster. I would love that.

For right now I still think have a warm dry interior would be a really nice start. Brakes would also be appreciated to help stop this beast.
