    Default Do you ever have those days where you wish you had'nt started??

    Took all the air box out to get access to the back of the lamp to fit me led side light chips, only to find the circuit board chips are too wide, then went to put my led festoon bulbs in the tail gate only to fit one and find the bulb holder screw doesnt want to come out at all, just gave up in the end.

    It's the sockets that were the problem mate (and the guy who torqued the bolts up the last time )

    I'll get my 2 foot breaker and torx socket on it (and probably break the bolt )
