I may just go to the show, but I don't think I'll show since the car is almost fully parted

How've you been?

I remember you were doing a partial part out a while back... are youbut my still upgrading or did you upgrade already?

I've been good, busy with work and modding away as usual...I'm getting a new clutch kit and other misc parts (doing some maintenance on the driveshaft) and I'm still debating getting alum diff bushings and powerflex subframe bushings but I keep hearing I should leave it alone and only replace with OEM once stuff fails..

I think not... I'll go with a new clutch/flywheel and guibo+csb... I checked my subframe and diff bushings everything looks rock solid. I guess I'll wait until it fails..

Anyway I called the vendor Monday to get a replacement and hope it arrives sometime this week. I will be out of town again this weekend so I probably won't have time to put in the replacement till next weekend

On a side note these 60+ LEDS are so bright, I almost blind myself from looking into them lol, wish they were a little less bright
Those look nice, sorry that one ring didn't light all the way. Where did you get those? I think i will probably try to put those in. were there any other difficult parts beside the headlight washer troubles. I hope the replacements work out for you!

I bought them from a board sponser DDMtuning, they seem to have the best pricing in terms of lighting. Bad part from DDM is that they have no instructions, good thing the boards have a bunch of guides

If you are used to DIY and do not have the headlight washers (cold weather package) it should be fairly simple. Take a look at all the guides, they should give you a feel for it. Do you have HID's in your lights?

I never got my Angel eye replacement though, called them this morning and they told me the Angel eyes are on back order. I'll keep you posted though.

I'm going to plan to attend tentatively. I missed it last year, but hopefully not this time around.
