    Default Car Show

    Yesterday I went to a group picnic. The guys I work with, there 25+ in our group. Anyway I drove the few miles from the office to one of the members house where the picnic was being held.

    A co-worker pulled up just after I did. He came over to the Jeep, and asked me if I had ever considered entering my Jeep in a car show. I laughed and told him know, that this was just my daily driver, not some show car.

    He then asked me if I would like to. I told him no. Then he explained that his church was trying to raise money and one way was a car show. They needed vehicles that people would pay to see. I made sure there wasn't an entry fee (cheap) and told him sure I'd be happy to help out.

    The show isn't until May so I should have the new winch bumper on.

    The driver's seat has a little problem with the vinyl so I ordered a Jeep logo'd gray towel a few minutes ago. I've been wanting to do this for some time, but now I have a good reason.



    While I was on the site, Quadratec, I priced some KC daylighters. They had 130 watt daylighter kit for 119. So I went ahead and ordered those. I don't like the plastic covers that come with the daylighters, so I ordered some soft yellow KC covers.



    The 130 watt daylighters are 285,000 candle power. I'll have to eyeball it when I get the first two, but I believe I will be able to fit 5 of them on the new winch bumper. If so that would be 650 watts or 54 amps at 12 volts. The fun number is 1.425 million candle power!!!



    I'm going to have a sticker made up for the front windshield top edge.

    "I dare you, flash me bitch!"

    It's back ordered. I'm sure it was because you were curious about it. Thank you for NOT being curious about the lights.

    But when he finds out he can't have children anymore he'll come looking for me.

    Are we talking DPS here or local Katy Cops. We don't want them procreating anyway. So you may be in demand with those lights.

    In new Katy is really is just the Sheriff department. Old Katy you see Katy police. Occasionally you'll see a DPS car, but very seldom. I guess in my case I'd be sterilizing someone from the Sheriff's department.

    I'd get a ticket and compliments on my Jeep.
