winter mods

What are your plans for the winter? Appearance performance sound?
For me it's over kill tune. C henry front splitter and mace insulators. Ordering a Dr colorchip repair kit to fix up my front end (rock chips from before I owned it) doing all this over winter so it'll be ready to go for spring. Spring will be power polish and complete interior detail (shampoo)

Replacing the battery soon and hoping to install a cold air intake. The weathers been pretty mild so far so maybe pull her out and wash/wax. Towards the end of winter, possibly the overkill tune.

Don't feed the mice lol. Throw some moth balls around the car up on the tire's etc, that should detour them.
I may put on a set of solo axel backs and a cold air intake on the Wife's red G8 . Only if she's naughty before Christmas though. Still undecided on what to do with the Black one, I have too many other projects going at the moment. My Cutlass's always has to come first
