I got most of my interior lighting back in order today to my satisfaction. I now have my under seat lights hooked so they only come on when the key is "on" or in "acc." I don't always remember to unplug them when I have them on, so this was somewhat needed, before I ran my battery down lol.

Here'* a short video of me cycling through the key positions:

I also took out my blue leds I had in my footwells as one died on me, and put in some led strips along the bottom of my dash. They're much brighter, and look much better than the bulbs. I'm really pleased with them.

Worked on the turbo today. Finished the engine and transmission. It'* read to drop in. Just got a few odds and ends to finish up on the car and it should drop in early next week.
