Re: Nor Cal area

no zone for me ...........but everyones heard about cruise already........

sooooo , i found the issue with my crossover but i decieded to take it out and use crossover in my deck and amp . tweeters are now running active and sound amazing . everything worked out really nice and very satisfied ....i now have a crossover for sale on craigslist ...........

rather than removing amp rack to get un-used RCAs out i just cut off the ends aand threw them away.........there went a little wasted $$...but alls well that ends well..........music sounds great !

Re: Nor Cal area

Yea, Wish I could have stuck around longer. It got kicked off a little later than I was thinking. Had I brought my vette Im sure I could have persuaded myself to stick around a bit longer than when Rancho PD showed up.

Re: Nor Cal area

Thanks for the compliment Marc. I enjoyed the first get together at the Rancho In&Out. Lots of cool rides. Couldn't make the cruise to Roseville cause I needed to get up in the bloodshot hours Sat. Promised my daughter and wife I would go with them to plan her wedding. Next time. It was great to meet you in person. Ron

Re: Nor Cal area

i've had the same wipers on my truck for 3 years still work good too

I assume you're not talking about that little bit where the wipers dock that the curve of the winshield pulls away from the wiper blade, are you?

Re: Nor Cal area

dang!

i think i need to tighten something or tension a spring (have not looked at it), because the bottom part of the wiper does not make contact with the glass, especially at higher speeds

Re: Nor Cal area

to be honest, its been about 2.5 years .. so. . going on 3 years, I took them off for the first summer too.

by bottom of the wiper, i assume you mean the driver side of the blade, yes? if so, then yea that might be a tension issue.

Cali cops don't like shaved 3rd brake lights or tail lights I don't know the specific vehicle code but that's California for you

I have a friend who got a fix it ticket with caddy tails because he had no side markers

Re: Nor Cal area

Didn't the cop tell you why? It is in the State Vechice Code (available @ DMV) that no modifications to lighting (which would include removal), without DOT approval are legal. So those of us with blue tinted head lights, smoke or otherwise colored tail lamps, etc. are illegal. Changing out tail lamps, as long as there is a DOT approval number on them, is legal. You probably know all of the other stuff on your truck that is illegal. I sure do on mine, but I have yet to be cited for them. I'm too low,no front plate,tinted drivers and pass door windows, aftermarket tail lights (not DOT), modified exhaust, etc. You get it. Usually, (hang on that word usually, there are angry cops out there) most cops won't cite for any of the above unless they are given "attitude" for the stop. Just sayin'.

he gave me a ticket, because of another issue that was my fault, but wrote on their it was a verbal warning / inop. but did not mark it as a violation or anything... he was a jack ass, wouldnt tell me why he pulled me over until the 5th or 6th time i asked...

Re: Nor Cal area

What I mean by "attitude" is that most cops won't stop you for "fix it" type violations. They usually react negatively (write you for other stuff) when they are talked back to or, given the impression that you think they are a "douche cop". Know what I mean, Vern?

Re: Nor Cal area

lol, well this cop did stop me for a "fix it" violation. i was not talking back to him just asking why he was pulling me over... i guess he is right about having to have that light though :/

Re: Nor Cal area

Great idea dude. I was just persistent on finding out why he was pulling me over. Don't they have to tell you before getting your info?
