1. fix the drywall cracks and repaint from shifting sheetrock
2. fix the can lights and change out all the bulbs
3. airston the tub facade and seal it

Winter ??? Well, since winter is actually better topless driving weather..we Florida folk will be having the time of our lives. A lot cooler, less humid and no rain. What more can we ask for. Sorry slk320chick and everyone else that has to deal with foul weather.

For the winter time...

1. Replace SLK Tranny Fluid.
2. Find a time, check on the balance shaft gear (stamp alignment method)
3. Before the next spring, do a clay again, and do a better wax job.
4. Before the next spring, do a oil change
5. Test to see how far my ultra high performance tire on my winter beater can take me before I have to get winter tires.
6. cleanup the install for my Dension I did earlier this spring
7. Change cabin air filter for my SLK
8. Rebuild hubs, cleaning chains, replace tire, on my road bike.
9. Well...aren't there just too many to count...
10. Keep looking for 1970 AMX or Mach 1 Mustangs..
