For me, in no real order, as they will happen when they happen, probably when the weather gets warmer :
Carry on collecting bits that need replacing on mine.
Get the boot and spoiler resprayed.
Probably the biggest one - Make a big effort to get to more meets and fix its.

Mine are service on the racer as not done one since rebuild then plenty of track days.
On the other days refresh my new Tomcat road car and get motd and back on the road for April.
Hope to meet some new and old faces too over the year.
For me it's simple I want to put my much missed coupe back on the road, and enjoy say 1000miles or more in it maybe?
Fit new height adjustable suspension and top mounts, all new brake discs and pads and exchange rear calipers with stainless brake lines.
Full service, Cam belt change and all new coolant hoses and cooling system flush.
Powdercoat the wheels and fit new tyres. Then have it MOT'd, a full geometry set up, and a rolling road baseline run.
I want the roof resprayed and some scuffs and 1 small dent repairing and painting. Then I'll have it fully underseald and have it professionally detailed.
If I can find a couple of grand spare I'd like to have it running on an aftermarket ECU and a roller bearing blower for 2018. I'd love to be at POL 2018, and meet some other coupe owners at a few shows.
So all in all, a ton of stuff to do lol!
Oh, I do want to get it on a RR tho!

Would be nice to insure it but I've got a wedding and various other Priorities to sort.
I do however have an increasing supply of new exterior panels/parts ready for a respray which will be its next big thing.

Track the RS
Maybe think about getting my bike licence
And even then maybe go to the Nurburgring
● Fix the hideously annoying leak, then I can refit all the interior.
● Replace catalyst and centre pipe, the cat rattles badly and is rather corroded.
● Replace front discs and pads.
● Replace wings and mudguards.
● Replace the chrome grille with a new phase one grille, new phase one hockey sticks, and bonnet catch.
● Full respray
● Refurbish the original 7 spoke alloys
● Replace cambelt and water pump.
● Replace oil pump.
● Replace headlining.
● Repair air conditioning and convert to RS24 refrigerant.
I'm certainly going to be busy this year!
