What are you doing to your Mustang this winter?

What projects do you have planned for your Mustang this winter?

I'm going to remove this iPod input jack from my system because it doesn't work.
Attachment 76067

I'm going to experiment with some epoxy to see if I can fill the holes the mounting screws made. This was a stupid place to mount the jack. I'll try on a piece of plastic first. Then if I it works, I'll take a deep breath and try it on my center console.

The other thing in want to do, really before winter is full on, is make my own carpet lay-ins. I want to make something that covers the sides too, because the sides of you shoes pass all that road grime to the carpet, even with good winter floor mats.

Now, lets hear your winter plans.

Good deal! It's alway's good to upgrade the place where your Mustang sleeps.

Don't know if I'll get it done before spring or not, but my plan is to fabricate a roll bar. Then do a rear seat delete out of alum diamond plate. Having a convertible is really starting to suck, or is it NHRA rules.

Yeah, not so sure they even let verts run down the track at Raceway Park in Indianapolis. I hear some tracks, they don't even require the top to be up. Must be like you said. Maybe those other tracks aren't NHRA sanctioned, etc.

No I bought the actual ford racing aluminator long block, then a few weeks ago decided I wanted cams, so I called comp and ordered a set of custom turbo cams... In the mix of ordering all this I forgot about fuel system so I called lethal performance and they suggested I go to 3 255lph fuel pumps and 80lb injectors, was runnin 2 255lphs pumps and 42lb injectors, which I got in march lol, so I gotta sell them to put some money back in my piggy bank

sounds like everyone has some really good plans!

I don't currently have any plans for mine, but I actually just got a DD the other day so now I don't have to worry about driving the mustang in the snow and all. I told my fiancee that if I find a good deal on something I want for black friday :coughaluminumDSorlongtubescough: that I'll be buying somethin for the car

NHRA rules for roll bar on verts is anything quicker than 13.5

I'll probably just stick with a Procal Tool, LCAs, and Boss 302 LS wheels with nittos. Then when warranty expires, an S/C setup with 650ish hp hopefully. Would have gone with Roush S/C but currently cannot afford it.

This is why I want to make my own floormats. This is what I used in Feb until spring this year.

Attachment 76390
They just don't cover the sides good enough. Then you get winter grime all over the side of your carpet.
