    I gotcha... I saw a YouTube video of a guy putting a bar in that did that. I was thinking about it but just never did it

    Removing/installing a swaybar without dropping the subframe is a pain I've done it before and hated every single second of it. Dropping the subframe makes it way to easy.

    Woohoo figured it out. I need a diode on the turn signal wire. A couple solder joints, and I'll be in business!

    Went back to the JY and scored the color matching hood and rear bumper from the same car that I scored the front one from, a new pass. side tailight, 2 brand new front corners and some misc parts for $150. At this rate I won't need to paint anything to make it look nice again, just swap it out and go. So much cheaper and less hassle than new paint. All I need now is to order new carpet and recover the headliner and I'll have basically everything refreshed and looking nice again once I gut the interior and install the GXP seats and whatnot. Should be getting tint while the package tray is out as well.

    Nope, there was voltage being back fed through the turn signal wire. I mentioned the fix above, a diode on the turn signal wire. The problem I'm running into now is the 194s are causing the turn signal dash indicators to (dimly) light up with the parking lights. Same principle, but I'm still trying to figure out the fix.

    Tried replacing my o2 sensor with a standard deep well 7/8ths socket and cutting the wires...didn't work. These are some long o2 sensors. So drove with no working upstream sensor for a couple miles to the part store to buy the correct socket. Cel didn't come on til I got back home lol. Its in now, we'll see if the gas mileage and minor running issues get better.
