What Maintenance Projects are you doing over the Winter

So far this winter I've replaced fan clutch, cleaned up and rebuilt one of my front calipers and over the Christmas break I replaced both rear ball joints, front trust arm bushings and 4 wheel alignment at Woodbridge Alignment.

Another caliper seal kit on the way so I can do other side and do a complete brake bleed. I'll prolly do the power steering and serpentine belt as well.

I'm picking up front thrust arms this morning to be replaced within the next week.
I had to do the alternator, valve cover gasket and oil filter housing gasket when I picked it up in September.
I've only had the car for 3 months so I'm not sure what to work on next. Possibly some rear bushings and definitely some light sanding and polishing of my summer wheels.

some of you guys are busy!

need to replace the pulse generator, front brake pads and fix the trunk where the spare waits.

been a little wary driving it this winter after installing the coilovers and dropping it. + abs and asc are not working due to the sensor. can't wait for spring to come!
