What are your plans for 2019?

Recommended Posts

Morning everyone, 

 

I thought this may be a little fun/quirky to do. Plans for 2019, what are you looking forward to? Could be personal, could be car related. 

 

For me, in terms of the car:

 

  • Stage 2 at some point
  • External mods, splitter, diffuser etc. 
  • Wrap? I want bright, maybe yellow
  • PS4 tyres... getting wear out of the ones that were supplied with the car (which were brand new)
  • New wheels

 

Personally:

 

  • Trip to NY with SWMBO - she's been banging on about this for ages
  • Back in the gym... finally
  • Tonnes and tonnes of car shows
  • & to grow my YT channel!

 

How about you?

Hmmm

 

For the car:

 

Keep it looking like new (so far so good)

Maxton rear spoiler

 

Personally:

 

Help my niece with her wedding in June

Finish the spare room

Fill the spare room with DJ equipment

Make a start on my Neo Geo retro games/console collection 

Go to to the victory parade in Liverpool if they win the Premier League (Tho I don't think it will happen knowing our luck)

Sounds like some good plans. I must admit I need to get the car paint corrected and protected when the nicer weather comes around, seems the previous owner took to it with a hard bristle brush. 

 

Liverpool winning the league! Potential, my old manager supported them so I watched a few matches in a local bar with her and a few colleagues last year, if they perform as they did there's a good chance!

Notice handed in yesterday - Finish 11th Jan, start new job 14th Jan.

 

Buy mates ex lease car as I currently have a company car.

 

Hopefully get lots of overtime in new job to pay off loans and credit cards.

 

Get some motivation to get back into the gym.

 

Then once on an even keel financially look at home improvements (Kitchen, En Suite, Windows) and a holiday.

 

2018 has been a bittersweet year, happy at home but have been hating work and circumstances have left me and my other half in quite a bit of debt which is hanging over us so it will be good to make headway on that.

 

Failing all of the above, I will sell the R, sell the house and bugger off to Australia or something and live in a few acres with a "boat house" to which I can set up a detailing business in and still have change!

Got some Eibach spring ready to go on early next year and I’m know I’ll be needing new tyres soon so PS4S or PSS (leaning to PS4S) really don’t rate the conti sports which are on now. AWGhost will be sorted early doors too just waiting to see if there is a revision

 

Need to get the machine polished to get all the swirls and some marring on the bonnet from the previous owner 😔 and ideally ceramic coated but it’s just finding the money to pay for it, it’s one of those things which seems like a lot of money for what it is but it is kinda worth it in the long run IMO. 

 

Also leaning towards a JB4 now so maybe one of them in spring 😇

I've just bought another dilapidated former working farm which needs an A-Z  redevelopment, once the plans are passed we aim to get underway in the spring, the only mains service to the place is an electricity supply so a challenge lies ahead. My Brother-in Law and I along with his team do the graft and my Mrs has a real flare for choosing kitchens, bathrooms and the finishing touches. 

We completed our house in 2014.

Thanks Huw, it took two years, the north/ south divide in property prices is crazy, one of our boys lives in a telephone box in Hertfordshire that's worth the same as a 3 bed semi here.

 Yep, agree. Scary what places in my street are selling for, just normal 3-4 bed semis, and ones in bad nick selling for stupid money. Chap down the road built a three bed place on the side of his house where his drive and garage used to be, then sold it and his house for over £1m.

 

Cant wait until I retire and get out of the smoke.

Our place is circa 3200 sq/ft with 12 acres, it would be worth about 4 million in St Albans where our sons lives, here it would sell for 750 at best.
