My New Years resolution from last year (pulled from .com)

Sherwood:

Not so much performance with her, I haven't decided if I will do anything more than my short ram and IDS bar with her.
1. New brakes and rotors nope
2. New wheels check
3. Rust removal and paint check


Canterbury:

1. Install sways check
2. Install Ksports check
3. Paint and install OEM spoiler check
4. Rust removal and paint check
5. Do whatever it is that needs to be done to get her running right (ie: sell my soul) check!!


Me:

Read and learn, read and learn. Ask some more questions check

Last year I was only hoping for minor changes on my cars, I never could have imagined that I would take it this far

This year:

Kitty Kar:

New wheels (again)
Complete my JDM interior swap

Sherwood:

Maintain, maintain, maintain

Del Sol aka Mini Kitty:

New paint job (complete color change)
re-tune
prep for turbo
Lots and lots of jdm goodies

What I'd like to see ditto ^^
