Same here Carl, frankly it feels like I'm seeing Santa every other week this year so far.... Once the restore is completed I might get my eye on the Nardi steering wheel, it's growing on me and will probably flower for Christmas 2020. 馃槀

New emblem and new fog light lenses and head light lenses.

DHartman66 - I hope you get them, the stainless versions look WAY better on the car.

A car cover for these long winter days, and nights in hibernation. Also a new timing chain, guides, tensioner, and injectors as stocking stuffers.

DHartman66, I have the original Stainless Steel wiper blades but the rubber is shot, can I just buy the rubber wiper part, or do I have to buy the whole blade.

I did that a while ago - ouch! Bosch is not cheap compared to the after market stuff. Crazy really as I don't take the car out in the rain so the only use they get is if I get caught in an unexpected shower. That said they do look a lot better

I have found a few places on Ebay that have just the rubber inserts. Reasonably priced, too:

Got lucky and found a set for $70. Let's hope that the picture was of what I am going to received and not a "Close proximity".

Would love to do that someday. This Christmas, however, I shall be receiving window buffing supplies & tools to buff out the fine grain scratches on my windshield caused by many years in the sandy desert.
