5. red & amber bulbs, Oh damn I forgot them.... Hmmm I can't drive to get them.... Graba beer and think about this.... Light a smoke... think...... Grab the Red spray paint and paint the bulbs, Paint the others Amber.. Have 5 more beer while the paint dries.. put lights back on the car.... Search for the #10... While yelling at the dog.
