I played with the lazy eye thing before, but i just pulled the headlight motor fuse or the plug, dont remember which) and turned the ****. I decided its not for me and that I like the clean sleeper look.

I was gonna ask if it was wrong that I liked them but I guess not. I'm mostly driving city but I still wish I had more light, how's the illumination with that setup?

I was never going to go over 12psi, two weeks into it, turned 14psi. Then some oil build up around the valve cover, I turned it down before I had leaks. LOL And to save gas.... Man it got 14mpg. Of coarse that isn't bad for flat on the FLOOR! lol

Welcome aboard!
