Probably. lol. I might get some switchbacks eventually.

I can probably fix the bad bulb. I think it might just be a bad solder joint. I might take it apart tomorrow, and see if I can see what'* wrong with it.

If you can fix it, more power to ya!

I'm all about ease though, so I just spend the extra.

Haha yeah, I have no trouble trying to fix it. Whether or not I fix it or not, is a different story haha. I can't see it being too difficult though. Its just two resistors going into the led board, and a capacitor coming out. The bulb did work at a certain position in the socket, so it definitely works.

Well, go you!

I'm horrible with a soldering iron. My hands aren't steady enough at all. It really sucks considering I know how all that crap works.

im trying to decide if i think my 60/40 bench has the center part of the foam seperate from the seat part on the driver seat, even though they use the same piece of leather. i really want a new seat, but i cant find a gray one and this seat is really starting to hurt my back. the previous owner flattened it, and it seems like im falling out the window now when i drive. i dont think its a bad spring, i think the foam just tore on the spring where it was flattened. the seats themselves are symmetrical on the *** part, but im worried the driver seat foam and foam where the 3rd person sits is all one piece.

Look at the seat anchor points on the floor. If there are only two on each side and none in the middle that means it is a one piece frame, and a one piece frame probably means a one piece seat cushion.
