    Yeah Yeah I know I am late to the party. Tell me about that straw you are using on the McDonalds cut on the table Randall. Looks custom AF.

    That’s brake fluid in there. When I put my new brake line in I bled the brakes into there

    Needed a 3 wire run for my winch controls, so I cut up an old extension cord. With some heat shrink and Chinese finger trap shit, it looks great! New solenoid plug will get in tomorrow and I’ll get that end finished, and then we wait for the new bumper.

    Once my new bumper is ready from powder, the winch will go back on the truck and it’ll all be finalized.

    Looks fantastic! Hey, do you have a link for said Chinese finger trap stuff?

    I want to connect the factory brake controller pigtail to the new Tekonsha pigtail and will splice/solder them but I want the entire length of the new extended length to look factory like that. That looks guuud!

    I'm mounting the brake controller up on the trim bezel to the left of the steering wheel right above the vent. I played with mounting it to the face of the dash with velcro to test it and kept banging my knees on it. For security I will remove it when I am not using it and only 3" of the end of the cable will be exposed and the strip of velcro on the top of the trim bezel.

    Reminds me of this Ford fusion I parked next to at work today. The entire back floorboard is covered in a mountain of sugar free red bull cans.

    However it does look like he might have used a wetnap to wipe out those cup holders. o_O

    Yeah, I'm on my second 100' run of the 1/4". It expands nicely and can cover a pretty decent range of stuff. I'm happy with it.

    This that and the other thing.
    might want to do some investigating, for some reason this rings a bell and two things pop into my head

    1- bad ground, I think this happened to my parents and there was some hood pin switch that closes a ground or some shit and the wire broke

    2- this happened to my work van and the key just had to be re-programmed (this was the security light on the dashboard like where the speedometer is) I think its cuz the battery died and had sat for a few months

    EDIT: they were not Subaru's tho
