Another year, another Things To Do chapter.
I like these because it's fun to look back on my intentions and compare against what I actually did. In most cases I barely complete 50% of my wish list. Things have been kind of hectic.
However, basement is done, dad's basement is done, our driveway interlock is done, Lancer has been replaced by the A4 Avant - ie the fleet has been locked down for several years to come, so it's looking like we're approaching steady state where I can spend some of my spare time on fun projects rather than chore-type projects.
Anyone else find it annoying when this text field auto-saves or whatever it's doing over and over, changing from pink to white and resizing the window back and forth?
Last year the BMW stayed off the insurance. Among all the other house projects I managed to get some stuff done:
- Shadowline (that may have been in 2015)
Okay I thought I did more than that but I can't remember. Maybe I didn't do anything to it??
Over the winter I managed to rebuild the rear diff and continue with the Megasquirt build. Momentum has started slowing down (end of Jan) so I hope things can pick back up soon.
Some things for this year:
- Oil pan gasket and drill/tap block for turbo oil drain;
- Transmission Fluid change;
- Oil Change;
- Steering center link... installed new one last year but it didn't fit right, need to investigate;
- Control arm bushings;
- Front driver side window frame repair;
- Megasquirt install;
- Start on the turbo build.
An ambitious list, that's for sure. Knowing my track record I'll probably get the oil changed and that's it. The only thing working in my favor is the fact we have NO house projects planned, or even any that I would anticipate to pop up. The other cars do need maintenance items but nothing that would take very long.
I'm thinking this year might actually be the year where I get some stuff done.
Oh just thought of one more thing to do...
- Get caught up on Project Build documenting!!
