I know what you mean...those little hoses are a pain. I had to replace an under hood light once...that little SOB took me 3 weeks! Lol. ;-)

Drove the family and dog (whom is also a family member really) out to Green Bluff to cut down a Christmas tree. Then I hauled it back, trimmed her up, and got her dressed.

Then I took the trimmings and made my dog a bed in his doghouse. He loves the smell!

I bought an 02 Edge about 2-3 weeks ago and finally started fixing all of the things that were wrong with it.

Wiper blades were not working (Fuse 16 was missing)
Washer pump was not working (Corroded wire causing high resistance, cut and soldered new wire)
Code P0455 (Tightened hose clamps underneath and got a new fuel cap)
Replaced all 6 bulbs in the cluster (4 were burnt out)
Oil pressure needle was under the stop (Jumped it over and works fine now)
Passenger side door would not lock (Removed a piece of rubber stuck preventing it from locking)
And finally put 20% tint on both windows. Tomorrow putting the rear window tint as well.

Long day but very productive.

Cost was $3.77 plus .50 shipping. When I bought them amazon said it would take a month from China, but it only took 10 days.

For that price buy $50 bucks worth at least. Sell a couple to a buddy for $20 a couple times and make your money back. Lol

Try doing a full outline of lights or a couple extra strips (maybe on a toggle switch) that way you know when you're out in no mans land you won't need to hold the flashlight in one hand, freeing it up to hold your gun instead. Lol

Haha I bought two sets so 8 strips. Some for the hood. And the rest to light up the floor in the cab.
