yep!! my comments are in the A/C mod thread. I did this awhile ago just now dug up the pics.

I did do the cable mod per TSB mine was maybe an 1/8th of an inch off so it really didnt need much.

Are you gonna make it to the North Vibe meet August 5th?

Yes I need tint! However I need money (quoted $250) and two I may wait a bit b/c the tint laws in Wisconsin stink. I can only go 50% VLT on front side and 35% VLT around the rear. I think i may want to go darker.

I hope to be moving sometime this year or next. So I'll have to see what state laws are for the new location.

LED GLOVE BOX LIGHTS!

First I removed the glovebox to find a place to mount the lights. I found 2 places. the first one is top and left of center. the second is on the right side of the box. I already had a power lead run from the 12 volt socket in the dash to this area and i re-tapped that line and added a additional in-line fuse.

Then I ran that to one side of the small N.C. momentary switch. then I ran the power lead from each light to a spade wire connector to connect to the other side of the switch. with the ground wire from the lights i ran to the screw to the left under the cabin filter asymbely.

Here are the night shots:

They are quite a bit brighter than the picture shows. may need diffrent camera settings.



and another


and the riser needed to reach and press the button when the door closes
its the white square like thing in the bottom of the picture

I had to add rubber feet to the inside edge of the box to actually make contact to the button when the box closes.

Since Target had such a great deal on SilverStars I just upgraded my Fogs to SilverStars for only $9.48 a pair.

I will not be upgrading the mains as many have reported longevity problems with them. I will be sticking with the GE NightHawks I have had for at least 18 months now without a single issue.

Sorry to see that. Kinda scary considering that looks almost exactly like my car. Looks like you avoided some possible injury by avoiding a direct collision. Do you know if you'll be parting anything out?

Goodluck on that search. I'd likely be looking for the same thing.

No injuries at all!! Thank goodness. It looks a lot worse than it felt.

I have a couple items but will not be parting anything out insurance has already taken possession.

I have the rear cargo cover and the 2 rear headrests. I might already have a taker on the cargo cover but if not I may put it up for sale.

That's good to hear!

You mentioned you had a tutorial for your horns in you cardomain site, but I'm not seeing that in your signature. Is that not around anymore?
