Totally understandable. Just joined DT too, username is zeon pilot. Thought of it myself.
Pretty much. Currently in the middle of writing a computer script to copy a bunch of files in one pass to a remote host because i got annoyed by doing it one by one.
It is! Plus i was so relieved to see the car operating how i wanted it to.
I usually pull the part because if they pull the part its an additional cost.
Make it 44 since I'm a millennial.
If its a led that is embedded into the circuitry, good luck! You might have to replace the whole board and hope it isnt VIN encoded!
I’m technically coming up to the age where I’m legally allowed to have a midlife crisis. Since the American economy is crap and I can’t afford anything cool, I’m seriously considering just plastidipping the hood to black and pretending I have a cool muscle sedan. It’s like meeting halfway or something, right?
Apparently the plastic bracket that I just put in is super sturdy when bolted in. I had to double check there wasn’t metal underneath. I played with it for a good ten minutes because it DID work, but now wouldn’t shut.
So far I’m in this $25 and 3-4 hours of manual labor. Way cheaper than a new car.
Decent is my main goal in life.... or ‘just good enough’.
My main annoyance was finding time to get the part and doing the repairs.
