  1. Finished up the LED swap. Dome light, map lights, trunk light, and transmission selector all swapped to LEDs now. I'd post pics, but it's nothing that hasnt been seen before.
  2. FWIW, an electronic flasher could even everything up. Autozone has them for about $10-$12 I believe.

  4. 2015 has already been a hard year for my family. Daughter has had to have a couple hospital stays, including a major surgery (again). Long story short, my budget will be small for the sable this year. So instead of doing a full projector HID setup like I originally wanted, I went with a less expensive route. New Eagle Eye headlights, switchback LEDs from superbrightleds.com, and an eBay HID setup from Innovited, with Bixenon bulbs at 6000k. They were much higher rated than many other kits. With new headlights properly aligned, they are BRIGHT and completely controlled. No blinding other
  5. Took my oldest to Monster Jam yesterday for her first time. It was a lot of fun. But I felt I had to share this with Kevin:
  6. My dad and my brother both are truck driver who at one point also had actual train horns on their trucks. 160+ dB. And they drain an air tank faster than you can say "Union pacific". Couple times I went for a ride with my brother. Going through the Caldecott tunnel at 55mph with a belt driven compressor at 3 a.m. Meant the horns were blaring from end to end. Add the resonance of the tunnel, and it was deafening.
  7. What made you go with a key in box? My RS bypass just programs like a key, with no key on board. Most of the ones I see nowadays are this style.
  8. I know we've had our differences, but that sucks, man. Glad you're ok, and I'm sorry about the loss.
  9. Remote start is such a nice add on. I already deem it a necessity out here in CA on my vehicles. Viper RS/full alarm in my Sable, and an Omegalink factory integrated on my wife's escape, though I'm keeping an eye out for a good deal on a Viper system for that as well. I can only imagine how nice it must be in those *actually* cold states you guys live in.
  10. Found you a new sticker. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AR9G6XO/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_ZXIBub0G7A0D8
  11. I've got a friend that used to work for Google. He took me on a tour of the campus. It is HUGE. they actually leave bicycles around for people to ride from on building to another. They have everything you need there. Multiple restaurants, a huge gym, lap pool, showers, laundromat... The only thing they don't really have is a place to sleep overnight. There are nap pods, but no actual beds. Pretty awesome, really.
  12. Those things are all over in my area. I can keep an eye on the junkyards. What exactly does it need to be? Years and such...
  13. What is the difference between a regular and SHO wiper arm?
  14. Why not just an aftermarket HID projector retrofit? Kits start around $300.
  15. Junkyard score: Passenger double visor and A- pillar plastics (clips were broken). Also, I got tired of people asking, "you got a cord?" Installed an Aux jack:
  16. You mean take it apart and put the wax on the moving parts inside?
  17. So after doing some work around both driver and passenger seatbelt retractors, the drivers has stopped retracting all the way. It stops about the last 6 or 8 inches. It will go back if I lightly feed it, but not on it's own. I looked at it and couldn't seem to find any type of adjustment. Is it toast? Does it need replacing?
  18. Thats TWICE Brian. You're awfully brave from behind a keyboard 6 states away. While you're so busy getting hung up on vocabulary, intelligent folks are able to infer that tax dollars were used in order to save a publicly traded company. I don't know what your problem with me is, but get bent.
  19. Use a hair dryer or heat gun to warm the area to a point where its hot to touch, but before paint melts. Then, take a can of keyboard cleaner, turn it upside down, and spray the affected area. The difference in temperature will pull the metal out without ever actually touching it.
  20. Something to think about: When Ford, Chevy, and Dodge were in a financial bind, Ford was the only of the three to not take Obama's buyout program. This saved $30 billion American tax dollars. Due to this decision, they had to start over in order to appeal. Adding a euro style to their vehicles may possibly have saved them from bankruptcy. And no matter what you think of the cars, transmissions, and warranties, they've survived by their own means. Seeing as how Chevy took the biggest chunk of the buyout, and has since had over 30 million recalls, I'd say Ford must be doing something right.
  21. New grill for the sub. Old style, so it's cast aluminum, not plastic.
