    Changed my oil... and started my yearly detail (I.e., clay bar, prepsol, buff, sealer and wax) hopefully will have it finished tomorrow.

    Actually got to use it like a truck. Loaded up a couple palm trees that I cut down from my yard to get rid of them (not too bad only about 1500 pounds). Always good to make sure the airbags work like they should:great:

    Well it was last night, but I Picked up my TLC airbags and I got them installed in less then an hour.

    I haven't tested it out yet, but I'm loading up the trailer and leaving in a few hours so I will have a review complete some time next week.

    Got an estimate for my hood and fenders being repainted. The place my insurance approves of says 1855.91 including taxes. That seems like a lot... gonn check other places as well.

    Jealous, I just got home from a week in Oxnard, Ca. Missing the palm trees already.

    Got my next mod in the mail. Going to be a real easy install. Finished pics to come later!

    Ha, I hate palm trees. I guess they aren't too bad. They were just to the point where I couldn't trim them any more. I was already standing on the top of a ladder with a chainsaw overhead in one hand. Not the brightest idea, I know. One was also planted up next to a fence and so it was pushing into that and the other was crowding out two other big trees, so I said they had to go. The spikes on the palm frawns are brutal too, always ended up with quite a few cuts when trimming them.

    They are Chevrolet logo puddle lights. I got them off ebay and paid around $18 (they even come with the hole saw bit for the drill). There are many different logos and you can even design your own of you are willing to shell out $55-$60 instead.

    The lights go in the bottom of your door panel, then when you open the door the ground is illuminated underneath. Just got done installing them. Can't wait for it to get dark out!

    I'll post illuminated pics in an hour or two.

    They appear a bit wavy because I had to throw some folded up cardboard I had nearby under for a clear image. The rocky gravel driveway made it look more like a mosaic, but I'm sure on pavement they will be great. I'm really happy with how they are in person, really sharp and crisp.

    Wow, those are nice! (And I'm sitting here thinking, "must ... have ... Autobot ... puddle lights"....)

    PM me a link to the source, please?

    Pm sent.

    Thanks. The instal was as simple as tying them into the lights already in the NBS door panel. They are leds so low voltage.
