Peeled my tint off yesterday, it was getting past the "purple point" plus there was a large tare in the drivers window from when I rolled the window down in a blizzard and caught a chunk of ice. All the tint came off super easy. I'm not sure if I'm going to get new Tints or not. I kind of like the no tint feel.
Also went to the junkyard and got a license plate bulb housing free of charge as my old one was broke where the screws holes are.
I'm kind of curious how old your tint was. Everyone keeps saying that modern tints no longer "purples" or fades. Sounds like you had some "purpling" issues with your though... Also, do you know what brand it was?
had the water pump/serpentine belt replaced last week. going to fix the power lead from the fuse block to in-line fuse for the aftermarket amplifier tonight. can't stand no tunes while driving anymore....about to lose my mind! lol
Looking for info on those who have swapped a catalytic converter.
New one is a direct bolt on, should I try crawling under the car on jack stands and removing it, with I'm sure it's never been touched and might be a PITA or take it to a shop and have them for $100? I also got a new downstream o2 sensor to put it as I'm sure the factory one is seized on there and will make it easier.
Question for anyone with no Tints. Is your little window behind the rear windows tinted? Not sure if mine are factory darker than the front windows OR if I still have tint on them. I obviously checked if there was any tint on them that I could peel off but doesn't seem like it.
I put Spyder Halo/ Led's on today. Instead of running the pig tails from the back of the lights to the pig tails from the car's light plug, l just stripped off half an inch insulation off the Spyder's marker light wire, twisted the halo red wires to the two led wires and wrapped them around the bare marker light wire and soldered the connection. Wrapped it real good with electrical tape. Did the same thing for the ground wires.
Took them out, plugged in the main plug, put each one in the car and turned on the lights. Everything works fine. Parking lights, running lights, high beams and turn signals. So now they are truly plug and play. To take them out you just unplug the main plug and they're out.
Also, make sure you at least check the aim of the headlights and re-aim if needed. I found that mine were definitely not aimed properly from the factory. And aiming them is a pain in the rear (not easy to aim like the stock headlights). YOu basically have the remove the headlight in order to alter the aim. Lots of removing, adjusting, reinstalling, checking, removing, adjusting, reinstalling, checking, etc... That's about the only thing that I didn't like about these - how hard they are to aim. Luckily, it's a one-time thing.
Finally wrapped up my build on the quad tail light mod and ss spoiler install on my 02 base model. I saw plenty of great write ups on it but never found a good video, just a bunch that showed the "final results" on video. I filmed the process, Check out my youtube if you want to look into...
Yes Ladies and Gents, just got in my MPD1 hood and looks sooo amazing and bad ass. I know it costs around a grand, but sooo worth it :) Eric, does high quality work and totally gets the WOW facter from everyone I talk too. Really gives your car an aggressive look to it.:cool::yikes: Still not...
