Maybe start by buying 2 at a time..
You will save in the long run not having to buy any more halogens too!
I use fluorescent (CFL). I think they are only 18W. Take a little while to get up to temperature in the winter, but just as bright as incandescent when they warm up.

I went through my tool box last night and dug out all of my broken tools. Now I need to track down a snap on, Mac, Matco, and even Cornwell guy.

engine cradle. (subframe) the unibody frame disappears ar the firewall an goes up into the fender. everything holding the engine and trans in is held in with those 6 cradle bolts and the tops of the shocks. im trying to find a place to order the bushings. or better yet, a writeup someplace on how to make my own poly ones so i dont ever have to replace them again.

Default Buick Needs an Inverter!

Got this 150watt continuous (300w peak) for charging stuff & must power the notebook. 2-120v sockets, 2-USB sockets & 1- 12 volt accessory socket out.
I like the fact it has both battery clamps & regular 12v accessory plug too.
