Presents for Coulson
Just a couple things to nice it up. Full stainless tourist trophy exhaust, along with a cute little cup holder setup and two seat belt holders. Courtesy of Moss Motors. Also we picked up two wolo full blast horns. The current horns, well you can lean your head out the window and yell louder. These […]
Kwik-lift ramps. Tool fantasy fulfilled
So I’ll start with saying I have wanted these for a long time. If you’re not familiar with the company check out kwik-lift.com The gist of it is that they are ramps, you drive the car on to and then jack up the low side via cross bar. Then there are fold down legs that […]
DIY battery cables
I can't take credit for this method, but it does work well, I'm doing it, so might as well write it up..
Bracing the floppy floppy cargo cover
If you have hauled anything heavy or maybe the previous owner wasn’t so careful, you probably had a spare tire cover that shared some similar structural properties as a pringle.

Led headlights, are they any good?
LED technology has progressed to the point that it's viable for use in vehicle headlights. Higher end newer cars are using them, but how do the eBay kits hold up? I've seen some sell for a couple hundred and I'm sure could go higher. These ones I've picked up for around $80 at the time […]
Switchback turn signal/running lights from superbrightleds.com
O.k. So the idea behind this is you have a dual purpose bulb. I wanted some brighter attention getting running lights as well as just a nice bright turn signal. You can see on the bulb itself it actually has two arrays of LEDs. The yellow ones are bright white. The orange ones are the […]
