It's that time of the year again. Winter is finally gone (for most of us) and the nice driving weather is upon us.

What do you have planned for your ride? What are you working on right now?

Share your project plans here with your fellow members.

Here's what's going on with my Black Beauty II:

Just drained and replaced all fluids - cooling; transmission; power steering; rear diff; crankcase oil; and brake lines. All fluids replaced with high tech custom stuff designed to keep wear and temps low. Will let you know how this is going after I get lapping.

Just replaced the power steering rack, as the old one was not holding pressure, especially on the track.

Purchased 2 Pirelli P Zero rear tires - 275 - 40 - 20. Will install on Monday.

Almost finished an interior "make over" using a dash kit from CarID. I ordered everything in gloss black and am using some thin chrome trim in places. will post up pics when done.

Thats me! What are you up to?

For the MSRT8, I hope to put on MagnaFlow Hi-Flow cats and add to that a Corsa Sport exhaust. If there is any money left, I would love to add halos and a new rear spoiler (a V3 from 402 Motoring... if Ernie will still make one).

For the 300C, I would love to get a chrome Grip-type grille and add mess behind it, but the wife puts up big barriers for spending "bling" money on her car. Darn. Well, for that matter she puts up resistance for spending money on my car too! I hate it when that happens!!!

I'll be changing my coolant, t-stat, tranny fluid & filter, oil change and changing the cabin A/C filter. Not much else I guess, but my car's now 6 years old.

Exhaust work and possibly some black powder coated rims. However I just polished the stock sims and they look preeeetty good! A local 300 expert "self-proclaimed" is pushing me away from the exhaust set-up indicating our HEMI engines relay on "back pressure" for torque and creating a more free-flowing system would essencially reduce torque output? Any confirmations on this? I don't want to derail the forum topic but a quick insight would be appreciated. Corsa/Magnaflow are both regarded highly, particularily on this forum...

Tracking my 22 inch chrome SRT8 rims and tires from ( Factory Reproductions ) and Sportline lowering springs. Can't wait to get them installed. After that probably going with color matched tail lights and side marker lights. Then the chrome Grip grill and color matched rear window fin.

2011 is going to be a good year for the 300C (DROP UM).

Car was taken out of storage two weeks ago. Last week was a Magnaflow Cat-Back and the Predator canned performance tune. That'll probably be it until next spring.

I'm waiting to be home long enough for a full on detail.I have had a bad set of Halo's that I will replace( for me it's I like the look of ccfl way better-but this durability issue).Also am thinking about getting rid of the two tone interior.
