    Fuckers aren't cheap and 400v 3ph VFD is probably one of the more expensive ones, even at a measly 2hp load capacity

    I like that he listed it as a convertible, but I take issue with the naming... cause I don't think it converts back.

    Never not once... But for 100 bucks for headlights you're getting top quality shit

    Same with the 5 dollar dome lights

    I just need H8 bulbs that won't throw CAN codes and Amazon/ebay ones that everyone loves to toss in their foglights or whatever can't be trusted not to catch fire or flash like a mentally handicapped ambulance.

    4 years ago I was cleaning the sensor to our company's medium format digital camera (which was stupid, should've just taken it to a camera shop) and I managed to scratch the sensor. I'm talking about a camera that cost over $25k brand new and the sensor is probably the most expensive part of it.

    Was scared shitless to tell my boss at the time but she was just like 'send it out and get it fixed'. Had to be sent to Hasselblad in Sweden. Dunno what it cost the company but I'm sure it wasn't cheap.

    Funny enough I think we've only used that camera once since then and it just sits in a closet collecting dust now.

    I lived really close to CRIS in Tempe, AZ. They fix Canon and Nikon mostly but the amount of boxes headed for that place that I saw the UPS dude just yeet out of the truck, made me think I'd rather just buy a new camera haha

    Meh, probably about 500 bucks retail. Those little VFDs (below 5hp) have really come down in price

    Probably more like $250-$300. The no name VFD's are really cheap these days. And that one looks like it has no additional I/O terminals so that brings the cost down more.

    Blew up the folding spare in the back of the 300zx to see if it still works. It does.

    1985 date code, would be sketch af running it on the road.

    They are halogens. Just ones that pull more watts. Im using Sylvania silverstars right now. Pretty close to the xtreme vision lights they replaced and available locally.
