I ran to town w/the GXP and disgusted with not getting to washing her lately. Had to get some nuts and bolts for the snowblower, got it together tried to start and have something stuck in the carb.

Drove the truck home, then took the Montana across town for my Wednesday night gaming.

Did an axle on the driverside, then hopped into the interior. Pulled it into 1,000 pieces.

Cluster had a dimming DIC section. This is caused by bad resistors on the circuit board of the cluster. Replaced

The console was pulled and I added two side cigarette lighters from the Intrigue (wait til Max noticed his is missing ). I didn't care for how the factory side lighter has to be destroyed to pull out the console.

Added the passenger side heated seat pads and wiring.
Pulled the radio face off and soldered a USB cable onto it to add a rear USB. I contacted Pioneer about using one of the iPod controllers on their site via the IP Bus cabling that controls multiple items in the background. No go, nothing is compatible with my headunit except the USB cable I currently use and there'* no way to hook into the back as there is no USB back there. Sorry Pioneer, sorry warranty, the face was pulled off, and the USB wires from the cable were soldered onto the front face connection port. Saw someone do it on a forum when I was searching yesterday. Thumbs up to the guy for posting his idea. It works great.

Hooked up the remote starter wire to the HVAC to be able to control the rear defogger when started.
The interior went back together and the only thing for me to consider now is cleaning up the wiring behind the console at the floor. I left a bit of a mess.

I drove up to Atlanta from Florida. I'm thinking I won't be doing anything else with her until I get back from Korea.
