Its an early Christmas miracle!!!

That little sticker on the lower drivers side of the windshield is a local inspection sticker. That means the headlight doors, headlights, turn signals, reverse lights, brake lights and horn all worked on command!!!!!! The Cougar is officially street legal for the state of Louisiana. Now I can drive it more often and have to worry about the rest of the morons on the road that much more.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

LED gauge light swap done. The kit from HiPo parts garage. It doesn't dim though, but I don't want to add a resistor and put all the extra load back into the gauge cluster wiring.

Anyone know why my amp light won't go off?? Just a wire came undone??

I think the amp light will need to be a regular type bulb to work correctly.
