    Instrument Gauge LED Lights

    For tail lights I used aluminum tape to restore the reflectors. Simple inexpensive and works wonders for brightness. I refuse to use LEDs when Incandescent bulbs are very inexpensive and readily available.

    My windows used to get stuck due to the motors over torquing against the stops. Used to use the window tool or a slot screw driver to release the tension. Eventually replaced the worn rubber stops and now they don't get stuck as much.
