Re: Ionic Running Boards <- Plasti Dipped -> Rear Chrome Brow & Reverse Light LEDs

looks pretty sweet. if mine was black I'd consider doing the same. I like the look of the black Ionics (I have the same boards). on my car though I think the chrome ties the car together. nice work!

Re: If your 8spd trans is rough, put your hand up

this is how I feel. if I have to pull the fuse for a half hour every now and again until it's fixed then so be it. totally love the car otherwise.

I only had to take the harness down for the install on that side. The bracket just prevented me from getting to the bolts with my ratchet. Once I was done I bolted the harness back on. No big deal.
