I noted how bad Azumi needs a bath from all the salt and dirt residue on her, and I drover her to the gym and back.

Got this for Christmas from the in-laws: http://www.harborfreight.com/120-led-re ... 60793.html
spent about 15 minutes last night locating the driver's side fuse panel.
spent an hour trying to manipulate my my fat guy arm to inhumanly strange angles only to discover I needed needle-nosed pliers to pull the fuse anyway.
Went into the house to find my needle-nosed pliers.
Drove my SX4 to Walmart on the day after Christmas to find Needle-nosed pliers.
Pulled the fuse to find out it was fine.
Realized there are two more fuse boxes to check.... :(
Realized my abundant stash of automotive fuses are now the wrong kind of fuse for a Suzuki Kizashi.... :(
Decided i had better forget about it for the evening and "cool off"..
Went inside and spent an hour pretending my new completely awesome Christmas gift from the in-laws was a light saber and I single-handedly took down the Death Star.
Apologized to my wife for asking her to don Princess Leah ear-buns and metal bikini while I played Jabba The Hut...

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
I was thinking the same thing when I saw the picture. Although I wouldn't have asked that of my wife, or I would've gotten, "huh?"

The hottest Princess Leah I ever ran into was at this car show where the Rebel Alliance and Darth Vader paid a visit:

I folded down the rear seats for the first time to bring some some cargo--a Samsung 40" tv. 8-)

I also got the rear cargo mat. Sweet! I have to install it today. 8-)

Good stuff. The stock all seasons are terrible at stopping in snow. I was testing the stopping distance on our latest snow day (~5") and while I was prepared for the worst, I was still startled by how far they slid. Definitely requires extra caution

Any ideas if the Kizashi will fit a larger TV? It fit my 50" fine but I'm curious if it can do a 60"...

Brought it in from the bitter cold and snow last night (wifey's car lives in the garage). Can't see it, but there's a 20hp garden tractor w/ a 46" plow parked on the other side of the Kiz, hence the goofy park job:

The new tires are AWESOME compared to the old. Like driving like a grandma and still sliding and super dangerous to being mildly aggressive and still under control. 8-) The setup has completely exceeded my expectations. :drive: :D Driving in the snow is fun now!! Can't wait for the 4" to fall on Weds.

As far as the TV, I measured the distance between the back of the seats and the rear to be about 46". Our box was 49", so we had to drop both seats. Even the larger seat opening wasn't enough at 24" as the box as 25-26" tall. It was only 6" high, so that wasn't an issue.

Don't quote me on it, but I believe a box that's 30" x 12" x 50-55" should fit, maybe even a little longer. 8-)
