Couldn't imagine having to wait to get your car or bike out of storage because of weather. I've been spoiled living in Florida for over 47 years.

I meant to say run the big block up to the rev limiter a couple of times.
And Bob it does indeed beat rowing gears in the big trucks !!!
I've got lots of little things to do to the Monte this year,new tires,starter,seat belts and I hope to get brave enough to tackle the power windows.
I've had 2 brand new motors still sitting in the boxes for a couple of years now,as well as a new harness and switches.
I might get called back to work sometime this summer,things are picking up in the Western Canadian oil patch.

You lucky Duck!

I should get mine out soon as well but it will go directly at the paint shop for the final driver door corrections/adjustments.
Also need to install the rear Bumper Horizontal Trim Strip & Center Cap.

Window motors aren't too bad.

I used this for help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zs5V3_n74s

I used a hole saw and rubber boots instead of hacking my door up. I needed an extra pair of hands to accomplish this task.

I live in Ohio so I feel your pain but I have been shifting gears in my T5 Monte for a couple weeks now!
