Order the plain wiring harness from Umnitza for like $20. (Its just a relay with two trigger wires.)

Connect one trigger wire to the Acc II wire under the fuse box, and run one inside the car and (,or OBD-I cars without the footwell lights, up the a-pillar and tap into the signal wire for the dome light. Then the AEs will fade on and off with the interior lights now, and will stay on when the car is on.

For that extra touch, get a DPST rocker switch and stick it somewhere in the interior, run both trigger wires through it and you get a master kill switch, handy when you're working on or cleaning the car, or have a reason to be stealthy.

If you can't find a DPST you can just put a SPST in the Acc wire and then also switch off the interior light when you don't want the AEs. You just can't have an interior light without the AEs on.

its only a 1/4 inch from being bottomed out, and its only that high so i can have 1 passenger in the car without my sidewalls turning into smoke.

onl i get my 205's on the rear she will go back to full slammage.

Also the angle of those pics make it look horrid, its really tucking tire and only an 1" from tucking rim.

its a free app that lets you edit your pics easily and then post them to social media sites, nothing overly special.

think P-shop for smartphone pics, but make it as simple as MS Paint to use lol
