My SSR:
Had a daily driver 2004, Stock-as-a-rock, searching Florida for a replacement
Put in some LED headlamp bulbs I found on ebay that were money down the drain. Gonna stay with normal standard bulbs. I've used/tried the Sylvania Ultra, they are great, but only last about 5 months.

SSR's and mid-V8 Corvairs. >>
I guess I've never driven a "normal" car.!

You guys are too much.

Guess I FAILED!!! as a detailer you'd think mine would always be perfect....

Yes, it's my daily driver and it went through rain for like 3-4 days a week or so back when I had a clients car staying in my garage from Thursday till Monday night and it rained the whole time and Iv'e been busy and haven't gotten it cleaned up yet.

I'll get on it though, maybe this weekend.

No, you didn't fail, anyone who uses their truck for a daily driver is a winner.
Now you have to be more detail oriented because of your business, but there's always a trade off between a driver and garage queen.
No fail at all.

I took our 3 year old granddaughter for a short ride from the driveway up to the shop at maybe 2mph. She said, "Wow Papa this is really fast". She's not old enough to be sarcastic and too sweet too. It must have been to low rumble of the exhaust.

This is a great example of how a "woman" says whatever it takes to get her way.

If I said pretty, pretty please and offered beer could I get you to do my little truck?


I do not have enough experience doing a proper clean up and shine and I definitely would wind up unable to do much for a week after. Maybe I just need someone to stuporvise and then I can draft my kids into doing the work while we watch and guide.

More LED's installed. Got the interior vanity mirror lights switched out. They are real bright too. Now if I can just figure out how to get the dang rear view mirror lights out I'll do those next. Not sure if I have to take the whole mirror apart or what?


old and new so you can see the difference.









finished





If anyone is interested in the part number, here's a link to amazon and what I purchased, they're the 23mm size. They fit in the prongs nice and tight but are slightly shorter then the OEM bulbs but if you place it perfectly center it will work no problems.

I didn't expect them to be that bright, they are just tiny little LED's but in that small cabin they are pretty blinding. Hey if I ever give my dentist a ride, he can just work on my teeth right there from the passenger seat.... "easy peezy lemon squeezy" as my kids say.

I like Harbor Freight, Blue Collar Supply, Tap Plastics and when I get a chance to drive over the pass to Sparks, Summit Racing. When I get to wander around Summit Racing it is always a lot of fun.

I can't remember playing golf in shorts in Ohio in November. Unfortunately I didn't get to drive SSR to the course. I did stop by the storage place and pay a visit (payment). She's in good company, they also sell cars. Its like an indoor car show as the inventory changes. Website show only some for sale. If only$$$$$!!!!!

Moved two tractors around in the storage unit and the 42 Ford. I couldn't get the super cub cadet, so I brought the SSR home.

I should get the floor mat done this week. I will get the stuff ready to paint put the winter wheels and tires on and then put it back into storage and wait for another nice day.
