Make it THRU winter lol

Front valance is getting a respray in april, at the very least. New R compound tires would be nice. And maybe HID fogs too... :D

Letting it rot, and doing the math on whether or not it's worth parting or keeping.

Hoping to refinish the E28 M5 rims I bought for the M3, but thats about it for that one.

-6000 K Hids in the headlights
-Maybe throw some HID's in the fog lights..............
-Rolling front fenders, shaving the inner lip of the rear fenders to make room for the 225's rather then the 205's
-Getting her recleared and touched up wherever it got scratched or scuffed.
-Putting back on the reiger lip and maybe getting the correct splitter for it.
-Mark D'ing it
-New Alarm
-Cup Holders
-Re upholstery mission maybe
-etc................

For my 88' iS i'm planning to get done:

- IE Red poly subframe bushings
- IE poly trailing arm bushings
- Powerflex poly m3 offset Control arm bushings
- IE weld-on rear camber/toe adjusment kit
- New left and right Lemfoerder Control arms
- New left and right Lemfoerder tie rods
- Maybe if a bracket is made the RX-7 caliper setup.
- Might get my hood fixed more closer to spring
- A set of Azneis for the basketweaves
- change teh stupid CSB since its on its last legs.
- re-do rear brake lines from the T (I don't need to but i wanna:) )
- 3000k HID fogs
- If i have some monies left over maybe some Falken 512's for the Remembers



None of these parts will be thrown onto the car until spring or at least when its warmer*wave* Should be a more fun car next yr.
