couple of finished mods before heading north
 
Well, as most of you know, I'm heading up to the arctic for a month for work, so I'll be gone at 3pm this afternoon. I had a hurried morning of finishing up some mods before I go... the gf kept telling me I had to pack instead :gy:

So, firstly, since I had to get a new speedometer as mine had decided to become posessed, I tore apart the old one, and painted it up to match my accent color.

I also took the time to sand down the cluster cover, and add some more paint to that.

Here's the installed look

And does anyone remember the underglow i'd been talking about a while back? Don't blame ya if you don't, it's been a while. Need some night shots, but that's not gonna happen for a while.

And have you ever tried to find anything in your glovebox at night? I've TRIED, but couldn't see anything, so here's a helper mod :smileup: I also converted my door sills to orange LED and got those hooked up as well.

And finally, I got my new brakes installed at my friend's shop after I tried removing the back rotors and came up failing completely. They heated them, cooled them, repeated, 10lb sledge for 5 minutes and they FINALLY came off. Glad it wasn't me

I ran a pressure switch too, still have to have the interior lights on for it to work though.
