    Braved the heat yesterday and got the package tray put in and put the rear seats in, hopefully they will stay there for awhile :rolleyes:

    Very nice. By the way, very nice truck in the background.

    Thanks Ryan.

    I need to get rid of the truck, mostly because I don't drive it. Unfortunately I can't get rid of it, it's supposed to go to my son but he has no place to put it and would probably sell it for some gas money :(

    I actually took the Camaro out yesterday and with the Holley Sniper set in open loop, it ran pretty good. I was surprised to say the least. But when coming home in the dark I quickly realized my headlights were working, just not very effective :dumper:

    So with 98° and it feeling like 114° with the heat index I set off to adjust the headlights. What a pain, first remove everything from the shop that runs (more room to maneuver the car around inside), adjust drivers side, quick and easy, move to passenger side, spend 2 hours getting it to adjust correctly :whine:

    And presto, adjusted and I should be able to see the road in front of me the next time I'm out in the dark.

    Then put everything back, re-arrange a couple of times and poof. Done for the day (6 hours later :screwup:)

    NO!!! Don't sell the truck. Haha I ended up getting some Mirimoto sealed 7 1.0s for my car. I want to try to see deer in advance if at all possible. LOL

    The truck will probably just stay in the shop until my grandson is old enough and I'll see if he will want it.

    I agree with seeing the wildlife before they run into the car also, that's why I HAD to adjust the light. I don't really plan on driving it at night but sometimes it happens.

    How was the install on your light? Any extra wiring needed?

    I didn't have to do any wiring changes. They plug right in but I did have to cut the back off the head light bucket because the back of the new lamp mousing is a lot bigger than a normal glass lamp.
