Take a Bic pen apart. The white tube is what you use. The piece of the cable that is longer than needed is what the pen wraps around. You cut the Bic pen casing the length of the extra cable, then...

Installing power/remote door locks?

I have a 2001 4x4 with no alarm or remote locks. I know there is a way to convert them to power/remote locks, but really can't find any clear info. Anyone done this? Or know how? THanks!

Removing walls on TB better MPG?

Lightbulb Razor blade, Bic pen, zip ties = more power!

OK, saw this burried in another thread and was SO impressed with the results, I thought I would report it here.
