      Why do you need a 140amp alternator? You must have a large amount of stereo/elec. equipment in your C? Otherwise, it's a waste of money. I doubt you'll find one for a hundred dollars. Also, I...

      I should have clarified a bit better, I am actually grinding down the glass on my replacement lenses, not modifying my housing. Grinding the glass down isn't too terrible, bit of a mess.
