Kale it's a perfect height but I get tired of worrying and dodging shit in the mornings with very little light and not much ground clearance.

Hit the Deer 2 yrs ago on the 14th, you don't think I'm not looking out for shit in the road! LOL too funny Zabo. It would be nice to just drive and not think about whats in the way.


On another note.....

Kale did you get your brake lights worked out? I just went and sprayed the hell out of the turn signal switch with WD and now my rear blinkers and brake lights are working. I'll bring home some electrical cleaner tomorrow and clean out the Water Displacement Formula 40!

It was the turn signal switch,it needs replacing. Just got to hold switch a certain way and all of it works. I may try some pb on it. P.B. is useful for electrical contacts.

good to know! If I'm making a left, I have to pull the switch very slowly and hold it in the sweet spot. If I don't, the front signal flashes fast a crap and the rear does nothing. I'll have to hit it with some PB.

I had to hold my wiper switch in the sweet spot to get it to work. I took it apart and put some solder on the contacts to build them up. I have not had a problem with them. They worked for 2 hours coming back from Helen today. I might be a temporary cheap fix for you as well. The westy is looking good.

I ran over a vacume cleaner in kennesaw one night, the guy beside me hit it and sent it skidding accross in front of me, it still scraped in my baja.
