Default 68 IMP Resto.

Well..

The shop is all cleaned up. C4 is in a box headed for rebuild.

I still have lots of questions. Going one step at a time. Rear end is the most expensive, most complicated part. It's headed to Zimmermans next week or so.

Pics.. as she sits today.

I'm still not sold on the black.. but it's WAY down on the list for attention.

The little side panels are gonna go for sure. I'm planning a combo box for fuel, battery and tools.

But even that is down the list from running gear.

What do you think.. I was planning just to do springs, and all new wheels that are foamed from snow cat pat??

That's not a small chunk of change.. but probably the best spot for my efforts. Am I better off just checking what I have? Tires are all air now. One looks like an oddball that was replaced.

I'd LIKE to be doing dynamat and interior panels... but trying to keep my priorities in line.

He seems to be a great guy.. just from reading on here.

I guess the question is priority. Where would you spend a few thousand dollars on this cat this year?

I know I'm going to be several thousand for the C4 rebuild. I'm going to try to spend another 3 to 5 this year. I'm ok with buying a 15k dollar cat... as long as I can do it a few thousand at a time. :)

Just don't tell my wife the budget!
