      Hang it from your tow hook in the rear

      All that rust on your coils makes me glad I live in Florida.

      Thanks man. Always feel like my car doesn't get any love at the shows and meets.

      The lights have Alot of pitting on them. I was able to get them so they feel pretty smooth but they don't really look any clearer and pitting is still pretty bad and one has a couple of small grooves in it like some one hit it too hard with a wheel.
