    Albert Flag Mirror ($30) and 02 Again Shirt (Free)

    Both the shirt and the mirror are gone - sold.
  4. Check out the photos of the mirror. It is a solid mirror, what you see is what you get. It has a very slight crease on the back of it. Otherwise, great for a daily driver. Not going to help you win a best of show award. Also, FREE - A Medium sized 02 again shirt. Just found this with a stash of parts, never worn, still in the bag (although it has a few slight dust marks on it). You pay shipping. email me at jjwithers at g mail dot c om
  5. Rob was amazing to deal with. He even sent me stuff for free sometimes. He was definitely one of the 'good guys' in the 2002 community. I was sad to hear he closed shop, and now this. ouch. Regarding Jim at 2002ad though... my buddy dropped a car there to get a new interior and never really checked on it, and they never called him. About 9 months go by, he checks, and nothing was done to it (he had a premature kid, and lots of family drama so the car wasn't a priority). He finally goes to check in on it after his life settled, and pay for it, and 2002AD changed hands, and his car was gone. It was lein sold (illegally because my buddy was never contacted about it) in OR and sent to the midwest somewhere. Sounds like that was one of the cars Jim took with him... Not cool.
  6. Here is my test with my helper during the day. Given the improvement, i can see my night time results being a significant improvement. https://youtu.be/fCT9N-U9xOQ
  7. Yes, these are the Blunt LED boards that fit into the roundie housings. They look great! But The wiring could have been a bit neater for the conversion. I'll figure it out eventually.
  8. Why is that everything I love costs more then I want to spend!! These look fantastic but after dropping the doe on the LED tail lights, I gotta show some restraint in my wallet.
  9. Yea, i have some of that but I don't want the wires to get all gummy/sticky. I was thinking more of something like a housing similar to the plastic triangle cover that goes on the back of the taillight. That way the wires and that connector board aren't dangling around back there. If I am going to wrap the wires, I'd prefer one of those braided sleeves.
  10. I did a LED tail light conversion over the weekend but I didn't realize the wiring harness that comes with the lights is a tad messy. For those that did the conversion, what did you do to tidy up this wiring?

    Insurance coverage

    I got in two accidents with my 72 and BEGGED Mercury to NOT total the vehicle each time. Neither accident was my fault. I was researching for the adjusters the actual value of the car, etc... it was a nightmare. I since switched to Geico for my wife's car and my Eurovan and Haggerty for my 2002. And no accidents since then... thankfully
  12. I can tell from these posts who has kids and who doesn't!
  13. I'm loving this thread i've created. Great ideas and suggestions.... including the ones that sound like torture! haha. I already caught the kid making contact with the car and she denied it to her mom and well... who is the mom going to believe? Not me... I'm actually going to take the cover off and photograph the current state of the car just to be safe... as future evidence... I'm going to find some railroad ties to lie around the car. Those should act as a first barrier of sorts. I'm still on the hunt for extra padding. I'm thinking of moving blankets between the car and the car cover... If i wasn't renting this property, i'd build a fortress around the car.
  14. All the barricades I can find have the potential to get crashed into, and then it will hit the car and cause damage... Maybe parking cones around it will do the trick. If those foam floor mats could be made vertical, it might work... There isn't enough walk way area to put planters around the car... I'd need about 80 pool noodles and a way to secure them... humm... good suggestions... they all got me thinking. Thanks guys. Keep 'em coming... i know there's a way I can win this battle!
  15. That guy totally cloned my bike. He called me throughout the process. Part of me is upset that he did it. Part of me is flattered. He did do some things wrong and I think those pipes are terrible looking compared to mine. He should have just hired me to build it and it would have saved us both aggravation.
