Yeah, unfortunately im letting the bulk of my parts list be my christmas list (which my wife and her family are big on). So i gotta let them get me stuff for christmas, then ill buy the rest on December 26th haha.

I guarantee the second I have all the parts ill be installing them that weekend. Im glad the in-laws want to buy me some stuff, they are really generous. My dad and mom stop buying presents when you graduate high school lol.

My wife is on board because she rides horses and just dumped a bunch of money on a saddle, so she has been egging me on.

Haha,

No more lying, although it still will probably be december until I have time to actually install everything. Still have a bunch of tools to buy, fluids, clean/prep the garage, etc. Can take a couple weeks for the torque converter to come in.

Im just going to come home everyday and look at the pile of parts building up haha

Got a few parts in today.

Comp Cams trunnion upgrade kit, This turns the stock rockers into captured roller rockers, so if they fail you don't end up with needle bearings going through the engine. Bearings, trunnions, snap rings, bolts, and washers for pressing in the new bearings.

Spring compressor tool, this thing is really thick/heavy. From ebay, cheap at 35$ compared to the 100-130 dollar tools others make.

DIY afterburner inserts for the taillights.

I was 100% set on getting victory red, and it took a huge leap of faith to buy this color before any had been produced, but I did it and could never get a non-metallic color again.

Crystal red, Inferno orange, the new red rock are amazing.

I typically dont like light silver, but I love your car, I find myself saying that often when I see your pictures haha.
