lol thanks sarah. looking on amazon i saw some hid kits that had h3 bulbs. im half contemplating using the old school analog ballasts from my old burned out headlights and just buying the bulbs. only problem ive found is ive got 35 watt ballasts and the housings are rated for up to 55. but i guess hid 35 watts (what are in my low beams in that pic) would be about 100x better anyway. i just hate wiring with a passion though so im trying to talk myself out of it.

Didn't do anything with the car or truck. I did however take the bike out for a spin. 100+ miles in mid-50s and slightly damp weather. Thank God for leathers and layers!



Here it is at the clinic when I came out from doing my drug screen for work.

It got up to 67 I think here. This was just in the morning around 10 or so, before the sun punched through the low clouds and fog. When I got home from that ride I took off one of my jackets and my chaps to be more comfortable in the warmer weather.

rotated the tires in this god awful wind, and packed the car so its ready for chicago at 6am tomorrow morning. my mom said chicago is supposed to get 6-9 inches tonight, so i guess ill be washing my car as soon as i get back from all the salt dust. one of the few things i dont miss about the north.
