Oh also forgot to add, I was soldering my wires for my LEDs and found out that you probably shouldn't touch the end that melts metal with your hand... I burned my pinkie finger to the point of blistering and feel like a moron for letting it happen... It'll be fine but it hurts like crap. Haven't soldered anything in a while and it was a rookie mistake, heck I BUILT my own oscillator when I was trying to learn Morse code and didn't burn myself.

>_<

Yeah. I just keep hearing stories of people's hoods flying up. I just don't know where I'd put them. Rad support??

I am ok at soldering, I don't really drop any liquid metal anywhere and I get it where it needs to go but it ain't pretty.
I am wiring my cars LED's for the foot wells and the back seat floor boards. I am close to half way done now, and should have pics up by Monday night.
