Re: New guy from Florida
One lesson I learned is to take it slow with the upgrades. I started with a running car and it was nice to do upgrades a little bit at a time, one to be nicer on my budget but also so that I could install something and get the car back on the road. Then find more downtime to take on the next project.
I am upgrading to C5 front disks but leaving my old drums in the back at least for now but I have no real reason to change them as they seem to work well and I'm not doing autocross anyway.
So far I have replace my engine with a built 383, new variable ratio power steering box, all new suspension, new tires and rims, new exhaust, added subframe connectors and a host of fixes like new driver's side door hinges
My next project is the C5 brake and spindle upgrade, and right now I am adding the Dakota Digital tail lights.
I have a modern digital but old looking stereo still in the box that I need to install and oh yeah some day like you I want to install a modern AC.
Eventually I want to do a repaint :-)
Lots and lots of projects but that is what makes it all fun!
