Well, I may have snapped the airbag bolts while trying to remove the steering wheel. Hoping this can be resolved with T30 or T27 driver vs the T25 I was using. Objective of this is to remove tach (and other gauges) for LED upgrades.

Also, installing:
- valves for LPMM mod - to shut off bypass pipe to keep neighbours happy
- stealth wiring for Blinder lidar jammer and Escort radar detector
- rear fog lights, with a twist (something to do with brake lights)

Included in above is a secret master plan to get Tore B's LED brake lights (corners and high centre) to work WITHOUT disabling cruise control. Stay tuned for more info.

Also, installed connector for CDR-220 to enable:
- illumination
- GAL (speed volume compensation)
- mute (from Blinder lidar)

Also working on rust repairs around front & rear windows, followed by install of new windshield.

Followed by paint overhaul: chip repairs, clay bar, compound, polish, wax.

Bugs won't dare touch us next summer.

no need for a master plan.

Had also considered and abandoned another workaround using the low intensity filament of the extra brake light, retrofitted on the light bar. I am retrofitting rear fogs and planned to use the high intensity segment for the fogs.

Tore's ballast solves all this and will let me use full intensity LEDs for the rear fogs as I would prefer.

Drove my 993 to work today for a detail and new rock guards. Also ordered up a set of PSS10 this morning from Gert and have a set of wide ovals on the way. Had FD SSK and Golden Rod done on Tuesday. Needless to say it has been a great week!

I just finished installing the ssk kit from Darin as well as Fister II's. Very happy with both and Darin is a great guy.

Currently muscling my A Arms out to put in Walrod bushings. A lot of torque and 19 years make these bolts tough to get out...
