For me it's finishing rolling my rear fenders so my 17" wheels won't rub, and preferrably replace my tranny crossmember with something more permanent. I was hoping to clean up my engine bay, paint some things and so on, but i don't think it's going to happen.

Anyone else?

Well, got one fender rolled and the crossmember deal mostly done. just have to take it back apart quick and paint the welds and stuff. It's looking more do-able all the time! although i did find out i need a radiator on Sunday. It's rotted all to hell.

i REALLY need to put the correct front suspension into my car. i still have the old springs and struts in my car from 1979, and inline 6. with the 5.0 in it, there's way too much crap going wrong because of the fact the engine is too heavy for the suspension...

Alright !! Keep up the good work. The aluminum radiator I bought is for a V-8 '86 Stang.....$90.00 brand new

Yeah, it really feels good to have that crossmember problem handled. It's made things seem a lot more doable now.

I've had plenty of suspension problems myself. I had Cobra springs on the front for a while, but it was too low for my 17s and '01 wider track width spindles.

Well, the rear fenders are rolled, and the "engine makeover" is mostly done. Now all i have left is to throw in the wagon springs i have coming at Autozone to help further with the rear rubbing issue. But that will be easy.
