    Because of COVID-19; I will be getting a GoPro6 or something like that to record the 1st start and anything else after break-in. This is at the request of my friends.

    Yes. Agreed. Ive not encountered the same problem with gopro footage or my dash cam. Seems to be only linked to iphone video. Is what it is.

    That's funny, as I was looking into a Hero3 a couple years ago and passed it up for reason(s) I can't remember. Crazy how many models are out now. I just need one with decent video and good audio capabilities.

    The upped tire pressure seems to be doing the trick. I can roll out in first and just get wheel spin with no bounce. Still under review and further testing but seems to have helped.

    Some pics after I had her out in the morning:









    On my last drive I had encountered a bit of rain. Resisted the wipers as long as I could just because I am weird like that but then had to go for them and I got nothing. Turned out the connector just wiggle loose off the wiper motor...I have the one plug design motor on there and the plug does not secure so good. Happy it was nothing inside the steering column or under the dash. I never tested things after the 5speed swap last year so it could have been any number of things because I had it all disconnected for removing the steering column and installing the pedal assembly.

    I was so damn happy with it. I was around 20 at the time. I seen others put it lower on the fender but I was not fond of that placement. I am happy with none nowadays.

    Some from this morning.

    sort of interesting how tastes change over time. More and more I like the near-stock look. doesn't have to be as it came from the factory, but I want it to look like it could have been that way.

    What a difference from then and now! Not only the change in style; but that paint makes a huge difference.

    Like Gadget73 said; at least with me; when I was young I liked the things kids like. At that time big exhaust tips were in; so that's what I put on the Malibu. But now; I like a plain and quiet boulevard cruiser.

    LoL. I somehow resisted many an urge during that timeframe of my life. Still wish I never hacked up the dash in my Fireturd to put aftermarket 4x6's in there, but some things just couldn't be resisted I guess.

    Older I get, the more I appreciate stock or stock like, much like gadget said.

    ..what's inside that trailer? I saw some pretty sweet surveillance vans in scrap yards before, can only imagine how sweet that thing might be inside...

    Yes yes and YES. Hence why I went back to a stock like headunit. Done mind the gauges...You know but others may not that the piece above the glove box is a factory ford piece!

    Definitely more shine in the paint nowadays.

    That particular trailer is named TITAN.

    Audio room, production room, tape/evs room, engineering and video.Much more involved than a surveillance van.
