Unfortunately the car does not have an options sticker in the trunk...





These two stickers are the only ones that look similarly useful...

Beautiful! Pardon my ignorance, I am new at this, but what does winterizing consist of?

@ jacobroufa Well... I live in the foothills of Washington's Cascades. Its pretty wet here all winter and the highway department uses a pretty corrosive de-icer on the roads. As such I like to park my car for the winter and my main focus is moisture prevention. I start by washing the car really well especially underneath and in the wheel wells. Anywhere where there is dirt can hold moisture. Even though this is no beauty queen I make sure to put a good coat of wax on it paying more attention to getting wax in the nooks and crannies then detailing the paint. I also like to bring it to a coin-op car wash that has spray on wax. This is good for spraying wax in the wheel wells and underneath the car. Under the hood I like to spray everything down with WD-40 to prevent oxidization on all the aluminum parts. I vacuum out all the leaves and needles from the cowling below the windshield and I like to take the battery out and clean underneath it. That is a good hiding spot for debris and water and it's corrosion prone. I spray WD-40 under the battery too. I usually leave the battery disconnected at the negative terminal. Since this car is used for autocross and the occasional track day I don't have any carpet or rear seats. I spray all the metal surfaces and seams down with WD-40 inside the car. Lastly I fill the tank with good fuel and I add one can of Sea Foam corrosion inhibitor and water displacer. Sea Foam is a product used for boats that spend winters outside and live in a damp environment. It's popular in the Pacific Northwest and up in Alaska. If I had a ton of money I might change the oil as I have heard it recommended but I like to do the fresh oil change in the spring when I start driving again. I can't justify changing the oil then not driving the car at all and then changing it again in the spring. The car gets parked inside for the winter so I don't worry about the antifreeze but if I were to park outside or in a colder climate I would change that out too.

I'm sure others can add more ideas or more tips relevant to other regions but I feel like this is pretty good for me... Hope this helps.

4 new tires, 2 cv, half shafts, a freshly painted door installed after some looser did a hit and run and left a nice whammo in it. Looking forward to doing some oil leak tracking, it will have to wait.....

Nothing major today but did manage to locate two small items that appear to be missing from many of our cars and installed them this afternoon.

1. Metal battery shield that mounts on the hood:


2. Upper radiator hose clamp which bolts on the air box bracket:


Moving ever so much closer... (to what I have no idea)!

I moved my project (my daughter's 87 924s) in from the "waiting to be worked on" shed to the "being worked on" barn. Put it on stands to remove the automatic transaxle to swap in the 5spd. Also, realized that the spare hatch/frame I repaired is from a non-third brake light car.

Reattached the passenger side front (A pillar?) sunroof drain hose. Now water runs in from the battery box instead of the side of the footwell. I'm telling myself that this represents progress.

Today, I removed the torque tube from my automatic-to-manual project. I was under the impression that that the TT from an auto car was the same as the TT for a manual car, save for a couple of tapped holes for the shifter.

Upon removal, I see that the auto TT has its rear-most bearing mounted in an aluminum housing. I was hoping to use this TT because its bearings feel like new.

I now have three TT's. The one that was in the automatic car feels like the bearings are new. I guess it is not going to work unless I add a fourth bearing, which I think can be done. Rather than add a bearing, I will replace all of them.

I'm planning on doing a nice paint job on the TT housing, so I will probably rebuild the one that is the best start cosmetically.

Shiny parts make the car faster, of course.
