yay! lol But that wouldnt be nice. What I try to do is, if I get such a good deal, then I can resell something for a bit more and still make money and still make the customer happy. For example. My euro bumper was 74. I would probly ask 250 or 300 shipped depending on what sort of shape its in by time I sell it. One that was cracked in 2 places just sold for 400 shipped a few weeks ago. I still made some money, and someone gets it for a couple hundred less. yaay. lol

I took a crap ton of pics with my cell phone. I wont be able to wash the car and get good pics until next week. I will upload them later as well as the camping pics! Off to work in a bit.

Sideways picture time everyone? I am trying to pack while doing this, and its taking forever to upload. So I dont want to take the time to rotate them all manually, and reupload them. So I apologize in advance. First off, this was the camping "trip" last weekend. Here is the car with the firewood and just my stuff:

Then here is the car with all of our stuff put together. (my friend ryan who does all the car modding with me went.)

We then went to the campground and set up the tent. after that we went to walmart to buy everything we needed. We came back, set everything else up and then got bored. We threw the football for 15 or 20 minutes, and then took a nap. We were rather bored, and realized we needed other people there. We then woke up and made hotdogs on the fire. We were in a primitive spot, and the hippies beat us to the picnic tables. So the focus was our table:

We then threw some more football, and lost the ball in the woods. We found it, and also found these crazy mushrooms as well. They were huge. (This is a pic after I smashed it, I put my foot by it to compare the size.)

We then threw some more football and decided we wanted to play basketball. We walked maybe a mile to the court to find out it was fall break and all the elementary kids in the state of KY decided to go camping. So we turned around and went back to the campground. Made a second trip to walmart for smores stuff. Then had smores and went to bed at 9:30. Woke up at 7:30, and made a fire. We stacked the stones to make a fire and set a pan on the stones. We cooked a whole packet of bacon, and we ate the whole thing. It was sooooooooo good. OMG. lol But yea it was.

We also made eggs, and sausage:


We then threw some more football, and decided we would go ahead and go home since it was looking like rain and we were geting bored rather quickly. Ryan walked all the way to the bathroom which is super far to fill the cooler with water to dumb on what was left of the fire. I then went "adventuring" and found some more mushrooms. lol

I walked a bit past that, and noticed there was the lake...and we could have gotten the water from there.

Then we packed up our stuff and went home. Yep that was our camping trip. lol It was very relaxing, but next time we will go with more people. I will post pics of the updates next. Hope your necks dont hurt too much! lol

Here is some more sideways pics of Mikayla.
No more yellow fogs yaay. looks so much cleaner.












Here is some pics of the wiring. We ran the wiring from the left tailight down inside the car under all of the plastic. We then went to this plug in the corner of the floor to run it outside the car. From there we zip tied it to anywhere possible and went to the first light (this is where the wire splits.)


There was a 2 or 3 foot span of nowhere to ziptie the wire, so I punched a hole in this flange where the spare tire sits and ran a ziptie through that. I then ran the wire to the other light.



When we ran the wires to the lights, we did these steps.
-First we took the housing the bulbs go in and shaved the end of the plastic off with a hacksaw, so that the 2 metal tips were out in the open.
-I had some mini butt connectors I bought from advance auto. We trimmed the plastic ends off the butt connectors to get a closer fit.
-We then very carefully crimped the butt connector to the metal tips.
-After that we wrapped it all in liquid electrical tape.
-The reverse light housings come out super easy, there is just one clip inside the bumper.
-We then put the bulb back in
-Then twisted the housing back into the reverse light (while the reverse light was outside of the car.
-We tested the lights to make sure they worked.
-lastly we snapped the reverse lights back into place and found where to ziptie the wires.
-Oh and we took a wrap with the wire around the end of the back of the reverse light itself, so that way if the wire gets hit or tugged on, its pulling on the loop rather than on the actual connection itself. I felt so smart for remembering that. lol

Rep for sideways awesomeness?? lol i feel like I keep making how tos, posting links, helpin people and nuthin. Not that it really matters I guess. I just remmebered has anyone else had problems receiving buy sell trade rating? I technically have 8, but it only shows I have 5...

These next pics are for you brian. A month ago you posted a pic of a f250 in silver with the 7.3 in it. I shall one up you and show ya pics of my dads f350 with the 7.3 in it. lol :p I am not sure what he has done. I know he swapped out the lights with other OEM lights, and other little misc. I believe he has a 4'' stainless exhaust now. he got it when I first did my focus. We both got ours done at the same place. He also has some crazy awesome looking CAI. Oh and a 2'' leveling kit.






So I found my driver mod sticker, and knew id never use it. I was like hey dad, throw this on the escort because thats the only mod you will ever need! His dd is a 98 zx2, which has been hit by a tree and we hit a deer with it. Its super quick for what it is, definetly quicker than my car. We beat a BMW in it the other day. The kid driving was maybe 17, but still. lol he started it. :p Anywaysss. Whats he do with the sticker? Put it on the truck. haha Racetruck. :D

Wow thats awesome! yeah I would believe it if my dads was. Its a beast. lol very heavy as well. When we first got it, it was my dads daily. Everywhere we went it went. Then it turned into vacations only, and he started using escorts as dd. Now it gets used for hauling only. We still use it as our vacation vehicle, but only if it involves alot of stuff or the dogs. otherwise we use my moms focus.
