Love it Manny. I was looking at the pictures and thinking man that back splash was making that chrome faucet look outta place and then, next pic it was changed to the perfect choice. Awesome bus buddy cant wait to see the new changes in person. Tell Darlene we said hey.

LED Interior Lights

We were in IKEA and I noticed these lights. Thought they were pretty cool and might add some accent inside Not a huge project but really liked how it turned out. It runs on 110 and was not difficult at all to install. You can change the colors and they will even change automatically if you want. Price was right too!

I got a GoPro Camera for my birthday (in Sept) and figured I'd catch some videos of me driving the Eagle.
You can see how much easier it is to drive since I rebuilt the front end a few years ago.
