Just Clowning Around

One of my DeAutoKey fog light bulbs failed. 2/3 leds died and the harnesses are very corroded. I forgot to record when I installed them but it's been less than 15,000 mi with no winter driving at all. Not too impressed.

They warrantied the bulb I asked about and we will rebuild the harnesses so that they are properly weatherproofed etc. The resistor harness was not well made and the connectors between bulb and ballasts are 8pin connectors more suited to computers or interior devices than car applications. We will rebuild everything to be sturdier and properly weatherproof.

In the meantime we put the stock bulbs back in because I'll be busy for the next two weeks driving around. Should be a 3,000 mi road trip so it'll be kinda fun.

At the beginning of the month I hit 78,000 mi. By the end of this road trip I should be over 80,000. I'm at 78,500 or so right now.

Random photos since the car is buffed and cleaned in preparation for this trip. Including the annual application of rainX which I hate because it's so much work to buff off properly. At least the stuff works wondered

And one of a friend's.
