Dc_wright

Please keep the ideas coming. :-)

I agree it's not a big problem but it's not right either. I like the letter idea and will pursue that. Unfortunately, the next closest dealership is 70 miles away.

I appreciate all the advice.

That helps. Thanks. I'll probably just splice the ground off the existing lighter as that seems like it may be easier.
