First off was audio, as this is my DD

Tear it all out:


No wonder it sounded bad....


I made a custom, sealed sub box for my JL 12w6

'06+ facelift with LED headlights. I'm pretty happy with the LEDs in the projector housing, especially for the price of $70 a pair.

Low beams only:

Not bad at all... I never soldered before in my life when I tried them and it turned out just fine. I started with the smaller and cheaper to replace stuff, like the window switch and the steering wheel controls to get the hang of it. Just be careful and go slow

More importantly how do you get 18.4MPG!!!

I used to be able to get 19-20MPG easily with freeway driving with 265/70/17 ATs and a mild lift with my V8 before all the mods, now it seems like a distant memory LOL

That was during an experiment I was doing to find out the max MPG I could squeeze out. Cruise control was on about 60, and I was driving like a granny everywhere. I don't think my RPMs ever got over 2k

Some of my favorite mods are the simplest. Here I stuck 2 waterproof, flexible LED bars under the hood and wired them with a switch straight to the battery. It really comes in handy when trying to poke around in there at night!

An an inline fuse, too, right? Always need a fuse when coming straight off the battery.

Absolutely. I like my car better when it's NOT burning to the ground.

Hmmmm...... I think I know what I need to do next! It's always bugged me that there isn't any hood lights.

I used two of these LED strips. I highly recommend them! The picture doesn't do justice of how bright they really are

I installed my Slee brake lines yesterday. The front was super easy, but I had a hell of a time with the rear thanks to rust from the previous owner. I also added a diff breather while I was under there, that took about 15 minutes.
I did a full brake bleed and ended up with a massive air bubble in the line that took forever to get out. But now that it's gone, I have to say the difference with the Slee lines is impressive! I feel like the pedal is not only firmer, but responds a lot faster. I'm slowly chipping away at my long list of mods...

There is no direct connection between the pedal and the hydraulic system, the "feel" is computer controlled. No doubt your brakes are better now, been discussion about the SS lines making ATRAC work better also because of how fast it pumps the brakes, but I'm pretty sure the "brake feel" is just us fooling ourselves.

Really? Interesting. It definitely feels a lot more firm now.... Maybe that's just because I spent 4 hours with squishy brakes trying to bleed that damn bubble out.
Also, the fluid that came out was pretty nasty. I have no idea when the previous owner last flushed it, I should have done it a while ago.

I've got a set of Stubbs sliders being built right now, hopefully a Demello bumper and winch will follow that soon. Right now I got stuck with some emergency sunroof repairs though, and I'm trying to figure out what to do about it
