I dont know if this is the right place for this... But anyways, I thought I'd put some leds under the hood in my 521 to replace the tiny halogen bulb in there, I think its a little too bright lol but I like it. I like it a lot.20170319_190238_zpsh1lwmsv0.jpg20170319_190257_zps3cwwoxxz.jpg20170319_203149_zpsk5it3x6j.jpg20170319_203202_zpsjqs66jzm.jpg
In doing so I looked up and found some notes in the dust on the hood, kinda random but I thought it was funny, pretty genius really...20170319_191759_zps826twi9x.jpg

The under side of the hood is where those lights need to be. Can't see shit where they are.

I'm your huckleberry.

One jump ahead of the lawmen
That's all, and that's no joke
These guys don't appreciate I'm broke

Yeah. One big bump away from frying your whole harness or ripping your fuse box in half.

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics
