    Hi -

    In my admittedly ham fisted attempts to install a hard wire for my radar detector, it appears that I've bent one of the pins holding the fuse for my 12v outlets on the interior fuse block. Any ideas for getting it back in line?

    My current leading nomination for a workaround is to add a little solder to the tab of the fuse. I know it's a hack, but I'm not in the mood to tear apart my dash.

    Not much yet, got a pretty good sound system w/ my custom sub box. Plan on adding more lights & a tool box.
    Ouch, might try a small screwdriver & bend it back or put a little dab of solder on the fuse to make it a bit thicker (Better check the fuse once it cools, might unsolder the link). Gonna have to go under there eventually tho.
