i agree. just a little tint brings down the light output more than one would think.

I have blacked out orange side markers. These housings take a minute to switch out. I won't be left in the dark when it gets dark out. I rarely drive this car in the dark.

sorry to hear that. What is your plan to replace the trans?

My dad is going to see if the automatic trans class at the University he teaches at can rebuild it. Then all I have to do is pay for parts. I leave Monday for basic training for the air force so I won't even need the car for the next 8 1/2 weeks. If I can't do that then I'll try some lucas treatment or brake fluid (don't question the brake fluid, it'* a bad idea yes, but my dad'* done it before to get a trans working just long enough lmao) to get it working long enough to get it to whatever dealer I wind up buying a new car from (I'm buying a brand new car after tech school). Last ditch option will be to find the cheapest used one I can that works and throw it in to trade in or sell.

Gotta replace the oil pressure switch, again.

The Delco one I bought failed within 2 weeks of install. Got a replacement Delco waiting to go back in it.

Also put a fridge in the garage foe service beer.
