Turns out the clearance on the back is less than I thought.
No fit, even the solder spots needed to be slimmer.

Filed down the solder a bit and moved the resistor down to the underside, then ran the leads up top around the edge. This works fine and fits :thumbsup:

Was able to get things back together tonight before it got too dark

All lights on. I think I'm going to have to put a resistor on that amp light though (that'd be the crazy bright red one). It's too much, need to tone it down a bit
:nod:

That's better. No more "laser beam" as my girlfriend called it

Just added a resistor

As most of you know that have 15+ yo cars, they get an old age type of smell to them. I read that coffee grounds are good at absorbing all sorts of smells, even cigarette smell so I thought I'd try it. Regular Folgers, spread around. I'll leave them for a week, then vacuum up the mess. Sure smells nice now :nod:

Does it smell like coffee now? Because I would take old car or pretty much anything over coffee.

sacrilege :evil:
Vote kick this guy :laughing:

It smells like coffee, yes. I've read that after you clean all the grounds out though the coffee smell is gone and you're left with freshness.
