Thats the old bumper. I smacked a guardrail, busted it up and sold it to a buddy. I have a OEM bumper and GV lip now.

I cut out holes behind the windshield sprayers in the frame, took a couple scrap bits of aluminum and jb-welded them in place, then bondo'd over the top.

I did the same with the antenna hole, but it "shrank" recently and is starting to show. It gets new paint as soon as I get around to tearing it down anyhow.

Has anyone here had an E-Test pass without the EGR? I would love to remove mine but worry about the E-Test I have to do next year.

Sorry there weren't any better instructions per say, but im more of a..there it is, just start unbolting **** til you get to a dead end kinda person...just start the car and let it warm up between removing each system, if something isnt right, put it back together or sk questions....but ill see what i can do over the next couple days with it.

1. Put the camera in manual shoot
2. Get a Tripod.
3. Adjust the ISO
4. Adjust the aperture
5. Adjust the shutter
6. ???
7. Profit.

IMO Low light shots are where to start learning your camera. Figure out what you can do with what little light you have, then go from there.



Heartland Park, Topeka at 9:40 in the evening, no tripod shot with Eos Digital Rebel (the real one.. 300D.)

Btw, what camera did you get?

You are thinking of gender, from what they taught me in the reeducation camp.
