I have been hearing a pulsing grinding sound from the rear end (drum brakes), sure enough I finally needed to replace the rear brake shoes. Been a while since I had to do drum brakes (previous was all four corners on my 60 AH Sprite).

Unfortunately I sold it. Loved the look of the car but it had some gremlins. Yesterday it was trying to start its self, weird. So down the road she went. I do have a ZZP wastegate and a K&N intake still for it if anyone is interested

That was sudden!

Took ours to get it washed - would like to take off the winter tires this weekend (because it's going to be about 75 on Saturday and 80 on Sunday - before dropping back into the low 50s), so I'd like things to be devoid of any last remnants of winter/salt.

Yesterday, the new Bilstein B4's delivered and I finished getting the duct tape sticky removed from last summer's incident. Today was get the vehicles ready for summer day. Unfortunately, will all of the melting snow, my driveway is a mud pit. Took the snow tires off and put the summer tires on. Was going to at least do the rear shocks too but didn't feel like doing that in the mud pit. Was bad enough changing the oil in my truck. Had to do that one, since it was demanding an oil change. Will pay the guy to do the rear shocks when the front struts are replaced.

I like your fog lights. Did you buy a kit off somewhere?
I just bought a cheap set off Amazon , used a single one on my enduro since they were super bright and used the OEM fog light mounting piece I know I have a thread or pictures posted on this website of them …..only drive with these on on super dark roads Liked the way the leds looked instead of OEM, don’t know looks a bit meaner lol but that’s just my weird taste :)

What brand did you buy ? Any pics ? I’m looking to do the same but haven’t done any research on them yet lol
Marsauto 6k white and blue 194 LEDS

My first time buying these, but so far so good. They are about 150-200% brighter and noticeably whiter than my stock bulbs. I have read the Amazon ratings and the negative ones talk about these flickering. Well, they work perfectly, I'm thinking many people out there have PWM lighting that is causing issues. Also there are reports of them not fitting snuggly. Well, again they fit perfectly. Others talk about half of them not working from a pack, well they are polarity sensitive. If they don't work reverse them in the socket. IMHO most of the negative reviews were posted by drooling idiots. Regardless, I don't think it matters what brand you get, many of them appear to be made in the same factory then put in 30 differently branded boxes:LOL:

My favorite resource for information and ideas is...

Interior with white map lights and blue domes.
