Although I worry that CCP state security apparatus is dissecting this video and appropriating all your technology now.
Thanks, I don't know if they will learn much but I probably stole some of my ideas from someone else, at least in part
Friday I got the brake light switch installed and discovered I am getting too old to lay on the floor of the car all twisted up
I remember laying on my shoulders, lower half draped up over the seat and legs hanging over the seatback while working under the dash, now I have to take the seat out, pad the floor and still complain to myself about how I hate doing it while I try and avoid Charley horses in my legs at the worse possible moments, maybe why it takes me a bit to start some projects
There is also that "while I am here" thing that happens.
I ended up removing the rubber bumper from the brake pedal and installing the switch in its place, will have to see how well the switch handles the abuse, the pedal really doesn't snap back hard and the rubber bumper wasn't even touching the mount.
Ran the wire for the backup lights but can't fully install until I put the rear bumper back on, they work however just sort of dangling from the back of the car
Got the new LED headlights installed but broke one of the bases on one of the new bulbs so I have one mismatched bulb in there, I ordered another pair so I guess I will have some spares, the cheap plastic base makes me a bit concerned to the longevity of the bulbs. They are really bright, however.
Hopefully I am doing well-balanced updates to the controls of the Comet as I go, the LEDs (though they have been a little headache) are bright and a little easier on the electrical system, I now have 2-speed wipers with an intermittent function instead of a single-speed, back-up lights where I had none, etc. I still want the car to feel original in a sense, and it does except the more responsive steering and better brakes are noticeable, can't say for the T5 yet, I haven't really had an opportunity to try it out.
