What you got planned?

Well holidays are coming up, well eventually.
So anyone got a little project or something they are going to get up to on the holidays??
I am going to build a 'go-gart/buggy' or whatever you wanna call it using some crappy lawn mower engine I found.
Should be fun

I am going to rebuild the engine in my mini and either supercharge it or turbo it depending on the cost associated with modifying the firewall..

Well, I got holidays from beginning of Dec to mid-Jan (eeeee!!!), so the XE is getting the final touches put on, the manifold, carby ect ect. Then I'm gonna have fun with it. Maybe start doing some interior mods by myself.

Another thing I might do is get around to make the paint on hte Mazda not look so "shafted". Typical Mazda paint has started to really fade badly on the roof and bonnet. So I might respray it.

And lastly, as I'm a complete nerd and computer gamer, I've got two LANs to go to, so I can have my full of UT2003 and Battlefield 1942...*twich* oh the gaming....

To finish off, alot of cruising. Pity there isn't many car shows on at this time in Bris.

Might be moving house but more importantly I will be spending a few days of quality time at Jindabyne between Chrissie and New Year. You just can't beat the high country in summer and an XR to get you there.
