It took me about a week to get it. It took him about a week to respond to one of my emails too.

wow hopefully they take care of that soon. They had a very high percentage rate as a ebay seller and almost no negative feedbacks. I would give it a little bit of time, and see how it plays out. Sorry your transactions didn't go so smoothly as mine did.

eco the area I mounted are areas which already have screws in place. Just remove them and put them back with the ground wire in place. The only place that does not have a screw in place is the location I chose on the transmission.

You can ground the headlights also as we discussed in another thread, I just chose not too. It doesn't matter if you do or if you don't. And remember you don't have to ground to every single place I did, you can choose to ground whatever you want.

so, I going to do a DIY ground kit... I was just going to buy some bulk 4 or 6 gauge car stereo wire in blue to match my theme, and all gold terminals. How much, do you supose should I buy of the bulk wire? I planned on using a gold junction block terminal, normally used for car stereo power wire. anyone have any better sugestions, or comments... Oh yeah there will be pictures for the whole thing...

If I'm right it basically hooks up to both the positive and negative terminals of the battery to better regulate and stabilize power. Not sure if it'll add increased performence, but might make electronics work better. Honestly it's considered by almost everyone in the automotive field as a bling item and nothing more. Never now though. If it's cheap then try it and let us now.

I was hoping to do another mod this weekend and write up a DIY, but it looks like I may have to wait until next weekend aswell.

I'm having a tough time with mine x__x

I can't find anything grippy enough to hold that cylinder thing so I can stick the screw up it.. It seems to toughen out 3/4 of the way there and I just don't know what to use to hold it down :|

What'd you guys do?
