Ok, now I really need to learn some arduino programming, that is win. Also since it draws so little current to begin with, you could use an SMD fuse/breaker. These fuses "blow" then reset after a few seconds instead of just dieing. They are also really small sometimes, but they come in all kinds of flavors.

You can jump them with a small wire strand or get a new one, either works most of the time. Car stuff: What did I do yesterday? Found Vacuum leaks En mass being most of the cause for the wagons erratic/strange rev issue, I'm thinking it might actually be the MAP sensor. It works, but I think it's dieing.
I finally put my Fog light bracket back on, fog light and horn. W00t now I have a Hi/and Low tone horn. Tomorrow redoing all the wiring for the light since some one drove it and the wheel ran over the wire's.

you aren't a boxer what is this
[QUOTE=edberg;34897578]you aren't a boxer what is this[/QUOTE] I accidentally
brb pulling engine for injector swap
Well technically I am doing an injector swap. But that's not why I pulled the motor. The CRX won't be getting another motor. It's going in the yard.
O_O

Finally got my fog light back on and rewired. And my dad took a pic moment's before I fucking sliced my finger open. [t]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1031910/Pic%27s/DSC00391.JPG[/t] Stupid me not realizing I had SUPER sharp Case knife in my hand.

Nooooooooooooo! The front suspension for the Spitfire is some of my FAVORITE suspension, it just handles so well! :(((((((
Lol favorite suspension. I don't know why that made me laugh but it just sounds weird to me. Like not something you'd have a favorite of.
Found a set of wheels, buying them fairly soon hopefully. They are a set of these, with 205/70/15 tires, for $100; [img]http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff136/fcfordlord/040.jpg[/img] The tires are too big, but he said they are in good shape, so hopefully I can find a tire place that would be interested in a partial trade. Also have been painting. I will most likely have to strip the hood down again. I started painting by brush, hoping that the paint would level better than it looked like it was going to, but it didn't. Now I'm using a foam roller.

I bought myself an early birthday present for myself and replaced my CD deck with a Sony MDX-C6500X minidisc deck which is a physical drop-in (and upgrades me to four channel out and external CD changer control). It was a craigslist buy but it seemed okay. As expected it installed in two minutes flat and works good with the exception that [b]the AM/FM tuner does not work.[/b] Seriously? How the fuck do you kill the tuner on one of these things? I'll try and get my money back, otherwise I'll try replacing the tuner modules between units and hope it's just that.
Wow, How does someone even manage that? Direct lightning strike to the antenna? :v:
Maybe they managed to short out the receiver when they installed the antenna cable? Something conductive got shoved in there? AM/FM tuner gets fried, rest of it continues to work.
Hrm. No refunds accepted. :/ Well the tuner is an IC module called the TUX-020 it seems and according to google there are a few reports of it going bad on its own. There's another TUX-020 in my old CD deck so I'll try swapping them and see if anything changes. If this works, I'll stick Sony car audio gear forever because EVERYTHING would be interchangeable between models, even internal components.
Dad got a new pickup [img]http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/428620_355623891139190_100000747462026_1099627_1818671975_n.jpg[/img] Checked it out. Runs great. Tag went out today... Don't know if we'll get a bumper/grille/tailgate and fix it or just sell it. I'd like him to keep it and drive it instead of the beat-ass gold '99 Chevy 1500 he is stuck with. The chevy randomly decides when it wants to not run and is a puny V6, the new Dodge is a 360 -- Laramie model, so it's got all the power shit. Awesome. Plus my dad is a Dodge guy. He needs another Dodge.
Can never have just 1 dodge truck.
Was going to work on my springs today but instead finished this [img]http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/420735_355801077788138_100000747462026_1099867_1975293027_n.jpg[/img] Vintage-ass 1965 Silvertone acoustic. Picked it up for $10 in need of some cleaning and TLC. It plays nicely.

I'm not really a fan of Mopars myself, the past three I've owned have all been steaming heaps of transmission problems and flaking paint, but I've always had a soft spot for that vintage of Ram. Especially in red. If I were to buy a Dodge truck it'd probably be that gen with a 360 and a T-56 behind it.
