Care to share anymore on the train horn? I am really considering something like this as people seem to have become impervious to the regular horn.

This morning I have worked on the clogged AC drain hose.

Funny story, while looking for the elusive blutooth control unit in my 2015 S, I have stumbled on a wet carpet under the weather tech floor mats. A quick search in this forum and a trip to Advance Auto Parts to buy a part shown on the picture (Dorman 46017) has hopefully remedied the problem. The drain pipe was not clogged, but after removing it I got some water draining from the condenser. A a precaution, I have also blasted some air thru into the condenser and the pipe.

Now back to the search for the blutooth control unit. Contrary to the service manual, it is not under the passenger seat.

Have a good weekend,

Jarek

Spent the day on a headlight mod, nice of Nissan to save me from having to tape off the blinker by using the exact shape of a solo cup!

It was a loooong day man haha. One of the lenses reacted badly to being sanded and polished, it looks like the dealer I used for a repair put in an aftermarket TYC headlight I never noticed before. So tomorrow I need to go buy some better more polishing compound but the other one came out awesome. Pics soon!

Actually here's one as it is now, going to polish the lens a bit more tomorrow:

Put a pair of Quick Fist mounts on to hold a shovel for the upcoming trips. Photos to follow in my build thread.

Looks neat man! I had tried this a while back on some Benz CLK500 headlights and after warming them up in the oven to soften the glue it just wouldn't budge so I gave up.

Hopefully I'll have a little better luck with the X. Lol.

This was actually my first time baking headlights haha. I've read about it for years now and since it's either this or buy a new set I figured why not try at least. What worked for me was putting them in the oven 1 at a time at 200 degrees for 10 minutes sitting on top of a bunch of wet newspaper (I kept rewetting this every 10 min) on top of a few metal trays. There's 4 metal screws that need to come out too. I know most ppl reuse the glue there but I went around the seam before reassembly with some permatex oil and gas resistent rtv that I used on my valve cover gaskets last year.
