Maybe? I'm not sure. It was simpler to just tap near the bulbs.

I just replaced my relay under the dash with the LED Turn Signal Relay from Mach V. I have LED turn signals in the front and rear of my hatch (and reverse lights) and have no problems with hyperblinking or functionality. My LEDs even flash when locking and unlocking with the remote. No resistors are needed.

Yeah that's what I thought, super easy fix. Part it only $12 too.

I have a hatch as well. How many LEDs do you have per tree on your signals. And is it bright enough?

I also recommend leaving the OEM relay and just disconnect the wiring and secure the new relay with zip-ties. The OEM relay is difficult to remove.

I don't remember exactly but I'll check.

Has anyone else changed out their crank pulley and had an issue installing a new streatch fit ac belt with the Gates tool? I know the metal bracket doesn't fit the same, but I cannot find zip ties strong enough to keep them from snapping after a quarter turn with the belt. Luckily I didn't cut off my old belt during the install and was able to reinstall that one. I am just looking for future reference. Thanks for any help!

No need for gloves for AutoX. If you're doing track driving, they may require fire resistant gloves. I'd suggest a color that contrasts with you car so that other drivers can easily see you point them by.

For my numbers, I use magnets.

Yeah they no doubt keep the car cleaner. Check out Detailers pride tire shine from auto geek. It doesn't sling off at all and doesn't have that artificial shine to it (unless your going for that).

I also noticed my flaps were creating a tapping noise. Thinking they were hitting my exhaust but it bugged the hell out of me. Took them off and the sound has disappeared.

Anyone else having a problem with squeaking exhaust hangers?

Looks nice! However I am not a fan of polished lip rims. Unless they're deep dish and on a Z. I feel like your car is missing something but I can't put my finger on it.
