Weekend projects?

I am looking for something or somethings to do on my truck this weekend. I'm on call, so I have to stay in town, and feel like getting my hands dirty. The problem is that I don't have time to get much for parts (since it Thursday) and I don't have much to spend.

I have a 99 F250. It has a DP Tuner, 4" straight pipe, air raid intake, BD turbo, and gauges. You got any thoughts for me?

Clay bar, polish, wax and detail it? Just a thought.

Fluid changes, detailing, new sound system, paint your intercooler pipes, clean the engine.

There's not really much in the way of mods on short notice, with limited parts. Most of the fun stuff takes a few days to get.

Grease the needle brgs!
