POR-15 for the rust: http://www.canada-por15.com/
Paint match from a place on Laperiere. I can get the name if you want; I know it to see it but don't remember it off hand. I'll go get my list of shit to fix on the cars and make you jealous.

got the first coat of mud all done, but determined that I want to drywall the ceiling instead of drop ceiling in the 'landing area' at the bottom of the stair, which means redoing some electrical and putting on strapping, etc. :/

the e34 went well, except for the one section I was worried about.. the front door. I couldn't really get to apply the POR to both side or even one side well, and it bubbled again. I think I'm going to drill a hole in the back of the door at the front and coat that mother in oil.

For all you nerds out there:

http://www.basecamphq.com/

I use the free version to keep "to do" lists and project manage everything I have on the go. Very handy. That way I don't settle in to fix the car and find I forgot to get the parts, or neglect that one thing that I always put off, etc.

Holy crap Jay...those are some serious lists!

Myself, this winter the power steering pump grenaded on me, and the driveshaft took a shit. Upcoming for the summer:
Valley pan gasket
CCV
Valve cover gaskets
Shocks
Front lip install
Water pump, Rad, hoses (preventative)

I think that's about it, then it should be perfect until something else breaks.
