    I replaced my stock HU with a Kenwood a while back but still have the stock unit. If anybody wants it I'll either sell it really cheap or just give it away if you can come get it. I am in the Orange County/LA area or, if you wait a couple weeks, I will be back in the Santa Barbara area.

    Here it is:

    Nope. They aren't too heavily hunted in Southern California so they are pretty relaxed around people.

    Anybody looking for cables? Selling some that don't fit my new tires. They fit stock and they have never been used to my knowledge.

    I got bored and dipped my fuel door. I can't decide if I like it. I think it might look better if I dipped my side mirrors but I don't know. What do you guys think?

    Just curious as how you went about wiring the license plate lights.... Do you just cut the stock connector off and wire directly to the ends? I sorta assume you went this route.

    Yeah that's what I did! Then I put shrink wrap around it and heated it with a heat gun so it would hold. Total pain in the ass since the bumper has to be half on the whole time you do this so we had 2 guys hold the bumper while I wired it for about 2 min. Heavy bumper though.
