I shouldn't have gotten started...

I ordered the HID kit the other day, and since I was board yesterday, I went in the garage and undressed the old girl for the first time while I wait for it's arrival. (You always remember your first) Anyway, since I've got her undressed, I decided to clean up the wiring for the GPS and Sirius radio...oh...and the left side of the stingray is a perfect fit for an FM modulator, no more searching for a clear channel every 100 miles...and I bet a set of PIAA's with an auto switch would work great in combination with the HID...and it's probably a good time to go ahead and run a power distribution block for future Farkles...hmmmmm maybe I'll order one of those shelves and rearrange everything.

It's a never ending project. I think I'm hooked.

Yup - take two Motolights and call us in the morning!!

Nice thang is; most all the farkles are function over form. Some still look good, butt the main factor is function. Be a good challenge to play catch up with Ari, the Finnish Farkle Freak. When it comes to farkles, I think he's left most of us in his rear view mirrors (which have been farkled too!!).

Not sure there is a cure for your ailment, so good luck on your farkle projects!

Relays

I've searched the site and everyone says to use the Heated Seat circuit as the energizing power for relays. I don't have heated seats. What other circuit is good to use that it switched with the ignition to power a relay for aux power distribution?

You could use the parking light up front...easy enough to tap into. And since you have her undressed, running the wire isn't an issue.

Not Motolights...but I did just order a set of T - PIAA 1100X Powersports Driving Lamps. I'm gonna get her all dressed up and won't be able to afford the gas to take her out!
