This just hasn’t been my day…
Why can’t I just buy NORMAL bulbs!? Look at this cheap chinese Wal-Mart crap. You’d think something as simple as some insulated wire and LEDs they could get right, but no. These haven’t even been up a week and one strand is already out. Complete bull crap.
Then when I’m heading to work, I notice that the dashboard in the Cutlass is indicating I have a bulb out. So I do a walkaround, sure enough. It’s still dark out so I can’t see all that well, and I have to get to work, so I waited until after work to check it out. That’s when I see this:
Super… and a nice sized rock is still resting inside the lens. So I’m on the hunt for new ones. Yay.
Then I go to take the bulb out and the glass comes out leaving the metal part of the bulb stuck in the socket. So more fun trying to pry that out. No permanent damage there though, once I got all of the old bulb out, the new bulb works just fine.
I did get one thing done though. I put a wreath on the Jeep. Every year I see a few people driving around with them on their truck and I always kinda liked it. So I wanted to see what it would look like. We’ll see how it holds up with semi-trucks blowing past on the highway. If it gets destroyed I’m not out much, but the way my luck is going it will probably somehow rip off the entire grille.
