I drove it to work, decided to pull my headlight switch again when I got here because the dimmer is still acting up after I soldered it a couple weeks ago, disassembled it, sprayed contact cleaner inside the dimmer switch and "exercised" it to clean any crap off the contacts, traced the traces on the back of the board and desoldered the dimmer switch and everything it connects to, cleaned it all, then resoldered all of it. It appears to work properly now, however, it's really hard to tell in the daylight. If that doesn't end up fixing it, I'm going to assume the dimmer switch is actually bad and I need a new one. I'm also planning on centering my steering wheel on my lunch. I've adjusted it numerous times but can't seem to get it perfect. We'll see if I can get it today.

^^^That's a pretty good idea. I've had a set of fog lights for a few years now that I've wanted to install on my bumper. I haven't done it yet because I can't come up with a good way to secure them and have it look decent. After picking up my Niner grille a year ago, I haven't really even thought about installing the lights anymore. Seeing yours makes me want to dig them out of the closet and try to come up with a way to install them.

late last night I replaced a distributor ignition pickup/camshaft position sensor. Also replace a liftgate ajar sensor, and hopefully that fixed my battery drain.

I got this in the mail as well. Read up quite a bit on air compressors and figured for the price, I couldnt beat it. I have yet to try it out though.
