Use helium next time. Maybe you'll get another 4.

I thought the maglite mounting was pretty cool. Picked up some rubber coated fasteners, holds the flashlight well and doesn't rattle.

dodge steath rt twin turbo and 3000gt vr-4 had and economy and a sport mode, and the baffles in the muffler changed depending on the mode. at the pivot points for the baffles in the muffler are bearings, thus muffler bearings lol.

I actually did this, on one of our racecars. In an effort to appease a car owners college educated father who had it all worked out in his head. He rigged a helium tank and wouldnt leave it alone.... I replaced the nitrogen we normally ran with it.., even documented it. Found my paperwork the other day. One of my weaker personal moments... not proud of it. Hope you get some enjoyment out of it.

I was bored at my garage yesterday after some cleaning up and started making a little light for my center console.

I started with a panther vision led light hat and cut out the light part of it

Then I cut it down as small as I could and reassembled it


And mounted it in the top corner of the console


Its really bright and it was free
