Car with a 'Stache' from driving in the sleet and it freezing the next morning lol.


Tear down and installation. kinda..



Now for the results. i know i need to pressure wash her. i found the mud again the other day haha.




what ya'll think? fogs staying clear this time. and getting the phillips bulbs for the headlights. should be here in next couple days. sorry for crappy droid pics. i'll take better when i wash her. also there seems to be a loose connection in my instrument pannel. i turn my lights on, and my instrument pannel and my hvac lights are not on. i switch lights on off, they flicker on and off and i can eventually get them to stay on. or they cut off after 5 mins. idk what the hell it is lol.

Those look good. How did you like the bolt on the underside. I always hate the idea of removing the lights when I remember that fourth bolt.

Lol I knew it was there, it wasn't a problem. the fogs were confusing at first but easy. still trying to tackle this loose wire. its really annoying when you can't see how fast your going.
