    Added a VLED license plate light. Connected it to my rock lights so I can turn it on anytime. It can splice into your reverse lights but I don't need a light this bright turning on every time I put it in reverse.

    Handles were already black to begin with but faded so I went over them since I had extra plastidip. Just did it as I would anything else, taped off a section and peeled off the excess.

    They look exactly like the ones I bought. I put some sealant around the edges of mine but still get a little condensation once in a while. Still love em.

    It was a black marine silicone, I can't think of the name at the moment. They've been ok for a while now so maybe it fixed itself.

    So I opened up my garage door opener and jumped the two contact points that I figured would open the garage door. Garage door opened! So now I just need to order the switch and solder some spare wires to the opener.

    This site spends all my money. Thankfully, this is a cheap one.

    I am. I don't have too many miles on them yet, but they fit really tight into the control arms and they're greasable. If you're installing them yourself, I recommend putting the ball joint in the freezer for a couple of days and heating the LCA before you try and press them in. I used a 12-ton hydraulic press to do mine with the cold/heat, and they went in pretty smooth, but the manual screw-type ball joint press you can rent from an auto parts store won't budge them.
