    ^^^^^^^^^^It's when your buddies hang out in your driveway and tell you that their POJ can beat your POJ any day of the week. A copious amount of beer is consumed; followed by more bench racing; followed by more beer consumption; somewhere in there the wife and/or GF asks you to put the bag of trash out on the curb; more beer; then you forget what was being discussed^^^^^^^^^

    That's how inspections are supposed to be done.

    Pretty sure this is the first time I've seen Marauder wheels on an aero Panther. Looks quite nice I think

    Well, I might be able to get it in the garage tonight. At least I can finish up a few things, like the right side tie rods. I also need to fix the parking brake cable. And install the fixed LCM.
    Maybe I can get it back on the road soon...

    The LCM is toast. I installed it and the head lights now stay on, regardless of the switch position. So I need a new one.
    Still have to do the right front tie rods. Maybe tonight...
    I noticed some bad clacking from my passenger valve cover, and it appears that some lifters are shit. So, I'm repaying those.
    It felt good to finally get back out into the garage.

    This. If everything works but the headlights won't switch off, you might be able to just remove the relay that's in there and replace it with an external relay. BTDT. Also, it may just be the switch. I've never heard of the LCM failing ON. They usually fail OFF. The switch in the dash is known to fail ON IIRC.

    I soldered two external relays.
    I may not have been the best at it.....
    Soldering on circuit boards in not my forte....

    Since I had the parts on hands, I replaced the passenger side tie rods. Just like the driver's side, all new inner, outer and sleeve, well, because RockAuto.
    It will need an alignment when I get it back on the road.
    Now I just need my lifters and a LCM, and I should be good.
    Maybe.
