Got a Second car for 2 weeks. What would you do?

Well First off I'm parking my car for 2 weeks and Coating the underbody with a really good underbody protector, this is the third winter she has been through and the underbody is starting to show it. I also have to rebuild my intake because itís not fit for a winter in Manitoba, Its going in the fender but Iím building a Shield to protect it from rocks and snow.

Anyone have any other thoughts on what should be done?

Oww and the second car is a 2003 GAGT SC/T
Mothers in Mexico.

Not that anyone cares but...

Desided to do more work to the GA Pulled the valve cover and the Tstat housing so i can replace them with my Powder Coated ones. Man did i ever pull a no brainer. I took off the Tstat housing and i really dident lose to much Colant then i took out the Tstat and out pored all the **** that was in the heads as i expcted, so i was cleaning up all my tools getting ready to pack it in for the night i though to myself if i'm only replacing the housing what the Fock did I pull out the Tstat, now i lost all that colant and all i would have really need to to do is fill up the colant tank and not really worry about filling it slowly. A well we all have brain farts some times.

Here are some pics.

Since you went to the trouble of pulling out the Thermostat; why not replace it with a new unit.

Maybe also flush & re-fill the engine coolant while you are at it?

The engine bay looks really neat with the red matching parts, paint your covers red too!

E-brake slides, burnouts, drifts, donuts, oh I dunno, anything you want without damaging the exterior! She won't know the difference except for "Honey..the car accelerates a lil quicker...I like this!" (actually driven hard instead of babied like most women do)
