I thought it might be fun to see what upgrades, builds, might be happening over the Winter in preparation for the 2019 season. I am working on my Wally Booth Hornet replica and going to install a different front suspension in my 69 Rambler Rouge project. What are you doing with your cars?

Some electrical upgrades, LED control for dimming instrument lights, electric fan control, and an aftermarket aluminum radiator with matching size dual fan setup and bigger replacement A/C condenser.

May work on my front brake upgrade setup, but that's a lot for just winter time. Too blasted cold wanting to stay too long out in the garage. I know, I know... got to get a portable heater and a set of shop lights. Though I have been told by a past Boise friend, that frosting their their thigh on frozen sheet metal while picking, has happened. Yes, she enjoyed picking parts as much as I did. But that is where I would draw the line.

I'll be at Wildhorse Pass Motorsports Park on Friday night November 9, 2018 for the Friday Night Drags. Maybe see you there if that's your track and you get the car ready.
