winter projects anyone?

anyone have anything lined up? no plans for the truck for me (this winter anyways), but i'll be building a mud motor for the duck boat... for those that aren't familiar it's basically a lawnmower motor with a long driveshaft out the back for running in shallow/muddy/weedy water.

Gotta work on my bike.
I probably have a few in house projects to tackle here. Tool cleanup and such also.

I have a few electronics projects. I have a reel to reel here i was going to use, but the damn capacitor blew up. so i gotta reinstall that now. THen i can remaster the reel to reels.

Then i have all the FTE projects to work on also.

Did the truck project Friday, new rear diff cover and 2" leveling kit on the front. Put the plow on today, gonna take the friggin thing back off tomorrow no snow tonight. I should learn to watch the weather before I hook the plow up.

Working on the basemant, have to run all the electricity and put up insulation. Of course I still have 22 days left to deer hunt this year also.

Finish installing the AOD into my Ranger, then put a mini spool in the 9" rear end on that truck as well.

On my 79 F250 I am shooting for a body lift and a different bench seat.

I will also be helping a buddy drop a 460 into his 79 bronco.

It should be a busy winter.
