Christmas projects?

Well christmas is coming again. I know I got 2 weeks off coming up because of christmas and Im figure I'll get 3 or 4 FULL days to work on my 1949 Mercury which has been getting neglected.
I hope to get the truck running better (timing distutor problems mainly) I want to paint the firewall, which I neglected to do this time so the cab is coming off and also plan on getting everthying in the cab ready to go. glass, electrical system, also plan to get brakes minus the lines installed.

Wondering since most of us are getting some time off, what do your plans look like?
