Which is a bummer, but maybe someday I'll be able to swap them out.
Replace the big three?

The three largest wires in the car. The alternator positive, alternator ground and battery ground.

Reinstalled the front sway bar with the extended length end links I made following the how to on this forum. Will have to test out offroad performance but it's safe to drive on road at speed again.

You feel the little bumps much more but now stability control doesn't turn on when going through the curves on the highway. Much less body roll.

I finally got around to swapping the LCA bump stops from factory to energy suspension 9.9101 i beleive is the model number. the conical shaped ones, they added about a half inch of height over the stock ones, which were surprisingly thicker than i thought upon removal. but, u suppose it will help prevent over stuffing the shocks and maybe help even/ smooth out the ride in certain instances.

did a general check of the under body, looking for rust, leaking fluids, loose grounds etc. found a slight leak at the oil drain plug, theres no drips in my driveway so it must just be seeping out enough to wet the pan..i checked the plug and it was tight, so i just cleaned it off and will keep an eye on it, oil level is good. other than that all was well, its really hard to do this stuff in the winter so i tend to kinda neglect it during the winter and then make up for it come spring, i got a few maintenance things planned for the near future.

I want to replace the exhaust but i always end up just leaving it as is cause why fix what aint broke??

Oh yeah, almost forgot! i removed the front mud flaps. there is a definite outline left in the paint but its not that bad unless up close. I like the look with them off and while removing them i can understand how if(when) they get ripped off it could damage the fender screw retainers and cause a headache.

that said, it rained today and i could surely tell more road debris on the panels behind the front wheels.

You my friend need to buy some of Meguiar's Ultimate Compound, it's a super gentle compound that you can buff that those marks out with. The stuff is awesome, I use it on my headlights about once every 2 months to keep them clear, another time I was able to get a bunch of old water marks off the hood with it.

Got rid of all the orange.

Added some blue to the speedo, some accented colors for the fuel and oil temp gauge. Didn't want to go overboard with the colors, but I kinda like it.

Had a little scare when I pulled a CEL after unplugging the combo meter with the key still in. My OBD cleared it nicely though.

I have the LCD polarizing film for the little screens, but couldn't figure out how to peel off the old stuff.

This is definitely one of the best ones that I've seen, especially the various colors. I would totally be willing to buy one just like it off of you!!

@Taylor Spaulding Well, I don't have a spare one, but I DO have a lot of the proper LEDs and plenty of the transparent sheeting left. Not sure where you're at but if you're anywhere near San Diego, I'd be happy to mod one for ya. Wasn't too difficult. Haha.
