    bad credit loans and instant payday loans story

    Due to an illness unfortunately we went into arrears on our mortgage, and after recuperation needed to borrow money to get back onto an even keel I tried my bank first to find that they were not very sympathetic to my cause, I then learnt a very important lesson if you have any sort of bad credit history you are far better to go through a reputable broker They will listen to you as a person and help you by finding the right lender for you instead of trying yourself and risking many rejections until you find the right person to speak to I was fortunate enough to find usainstantpayday com/ through google who took over and did the rest for me to get the usainstantpayday com]instant payday loans

    The moral of this story is be guided by people who know what they are doing

    Thanks!

    Any update on the footwell illumination kit?

    This started me thinking about what else can be tied into the dome light or map lights... like a Knight Rider scanner in the hood scoop! When you click the "unlock" button on the remote, it would relay on and start lighting up!.....too ricey? lol

    ^ a tad... The kit will be here on saturday... Im up in the air about wiring it into the dome light. I cant think when it would be needed. The light is really dim. So it wouldn't aid in finding something if you lost it on the floor. Also they wont dim out like the dome light will. Chances are I will have stared the car and hit the lights by then anyhow... I may just leave it how it wires OEM

    My $0.02

    For what it's worth, I got the red illumination kit a couple months ago and thought it was too bright. To me it seemed rather tacky with how bright it was as I wanted a very subtle light effect (keep in mind it is tied to the dash illumination level so this is a preference issue as well). My solution was to put some window tint over the lights. I used 50% so I just kept applying layers of film until I got the desired brightness. Also, I didn't like how the center light was blue so I swapped it out for a red LED I had from a security system install. Looks great and I saved the $10+ the dealership wanted for the part.

    It would be a pretty simple switch but not as easy as just a bulb. They have "assemblies" which include 2 leds for each side. Your best bet may be to find someone that has red, but wants blue. Then you would just disconnect the harness, mount the new red led assemblie and plug it back in!
