    The "Things I need to do to before Waterfest" thread...

    Well the big day is almost here....I'm sure everyone is getting pumped about this years trip (it will be a first for me).

    I still have a lot of stuff to do....I thought it would be helpful to post up what I needed to complete JUST so I actually get it all done.

    1. Repaint eurobumper, GLI lip, rubstrip, grill, fill hood notch (check)
    2. Order subs (check)
    3. Uholster sub box (check)
    4. Build false floor (check)
    5. Wire subs/amp/cap (check)
    6. Install Dreamcast (check)
    7. Install armrest (check)
    8. Install bilstien/FK suspension
    So what about you guys?

    If that ride falls through, send me a message and you can probably come with me. I hate doing these long trips alone, so it'd be nice to have a passenger.
