And today I used my Ranger as a light source between my hid+ bulbs on hi-beam and the 500ff's it was more then enough light to solder and mount.

I replaced the fuse holder on my CB radio. As I was driving about an hour ago, I saw a guy in a light blue Columbia hitched to a gravel trailer talking into his mic. I caught a bit of his conversation.

I installed HIDs a couple months ago. The right side was flicking on and off so I spliced the right side negative wire as ran it straight to the battery and it worked fine for a few weeks but started again. I checked today and realized the eyelet on the wire was breaking off. While my girlfriend ran into the grocery store I cut it of with my folding pliers I keep in the truck, stripped the wire with my teeth and crammed it in the connection of the negative side of the battery temporarily for the night till I can fix it permanently

Here is the thread where I bought them from DarkEdge02, and some install info since they are three bulb instead of the stock two bulb.
01-03 smoked altezza tail lights.
If anyone can help me with what I need to grind please let me know.

If I wasn't trying to just get it done so I could get to the beer store, I would have done a "how to" on it, but as far as what I did, it is pretty simple. I did use male and female wire connectors so that I could change them back to the stock lights if I need to for some reason. I guess in case something breaks hell I don't know.

Drove her for the first time in a month today! Going to wash, vacuum, tune up, change the tranny fluid, get new stickers, and buy my new valence tomorrow. The best part of being in the field for a month is not spending money lol!
