Took my cluster out because I was doing well over 120mph, just replaced the stepper motor 4 months ago, took the bezel off and moved the needle back to zero, will see what it does tomorrow, lol.  I know I got another stepper motor somewhere, lol.

Last night I ripped out the all four brake MOD, disconnected my custom LOF, and was on the way to removing my LED front turn signal bulbs.  I was getting the turn signal stops working when I press the brakes problem.  Not sure why a bad ground on the front turn signal LED resistor was causing that.

Fusion'd the plastics on my 04 wbh. 3+ coats on it, used all 3 cans to do the rear plastics.  All I can say is WOW what a difference

Because the system saw too light of a load wihtout the resistor load, so it assumes bulbs are out. We know better, but the computer can only reference current draw.

Replaced my PCM with a Black Bear Performance tune.  Took it to an ex-Chevy dealer (now a used car dealer/NAPA service center) to do the Tech II Security/Crank relearn.  Getting it ready for Torque converter/Cam change

Also installed the passenger side bed light and sat there and scratched my head on how I wanted to wire them up.  (Not much hair left)

I think it is something else, It would blink once or twice then go dim steady when the brake is applied.  The resistor tested fine so I put it back in and cleaned the ground.  Tomorrow I might be removing the LED front turn signals.  I was getting the same problem off and on today.  I have a bad feeling it could be the flasher module.

I had to clean the drivers side floor mat, because I spilled my Pepsi on it. So now I get to clean the carpet and seat also. I hate when I do something so stupid.

Upgraded my Cherry Bomb Vortex steel muffler to a Magnaflow SS so my long tube headers would breath better. Man what a difference.

Bumping this thread....

In the last week, tinted two front windows, removed resonator, hard-wired radar detector, and installed new air filter.

Replaced broken tailgate handle. Then loaded up the bed with wheels and tires for her car.  Going to get 'em mounted and balanced tomorrow.  Need to keep 'em in a locked bed.
