    Well it looks like my 355 will be deliverd around the 1st week in Nov. I figure I wont get too much driving time in befoe the snow flys.
    I was wondering what winter projects I can do in order to keep myself grounded from not being able to drive.

    I have the challenge grill and wheel spacers on order from Daniel at Ricambi...........so thats 2 projects!!

    What else do you guys suggest?

    Thanks
    Chas

    Have you seen it in person? I'm sure the interior will need some amount of work to get perfect... repainting consoles or adding carbon fiber etc.

    congrats on the upcoming new arrival! Plenty to do...interior will take some time, removing pieces, cleaning well, repainting (I'm also not a fan of all-carbon interiors).

    Is your timing belt up to date? (done within past 3-4 yrs)? I'm at 3.5 yrs now, so this winter planning on pulling the motor for the major.

    Hi Jay
    yes they are doing the 30k major and updating the valve guides before shipping.
    Also putting on test pepis and an O-XST exhaust......so mechnically speaking I'll be good to go..............just the cosmetics may need attending to.
