    Awesome, be careful with those gauges. I don't know how many Mustangs I have seen with it installed and the owner all ticked off because half the gauges don't work anymore after a few months. My father in law's Mustang has it also and all but the fuel gauge don't work anymore.

    I have those gauges, and what happened to me is that after a few months, they wouldn't light up. I was driving at night with no instruments. :notnice: So I went to a shop and they found it was a bad electrical transformer that came with the gauges, so they put in a good one, and they have worked for about 3 years now. Here's how mine look, day and night..

    I think we can go ahead and recycle this thread for this year. One thing I am getting myself right after Christmas is a flat-panel tv; I have had enough of the 19-inch 50 lb tube tv dinosaur.
    I haven't driven my Mustang in 2 days because we have 6 inches of snow plus half an inch of ice on top of that from frozen rain. Very unusual for Oregon. Gotta love "global warming!"

    Christmas has come a bit early this year. I actually bought a few gifts for myself. Have gotten a couple from inlaws and what not. And plan on buying a big one after christmas.

    For myself - Winchester 12G Home Defender Shotgun, all black and also picked up a Henry .22 Repeater. Also got me some Timberland hiking boots.

    From inlaws so far - Some polo shirts, which are good for my job. And a Wii...which shocked me, but really ended up being a family gift. My daughter loves playing it.

    After Christmas I am going the way of Red98 and getting a flat panel tv. I have had a 36 inch Sony Wega tube for the longest time. Looking at Sony's 52 inch LCD's, Might go with the XBR series....not really sure yet Still researching and want to spend time looking at em at the store. I never had a problem with the Sony Wega even after I dropped it in transport onto carpet from 3 feet up. Dam thing weighs like 400 lbs. More than likely will pick up a blue ray player too...what the hell. Might even upgrade my old Sony 5.1 reciever too.

    For the Mustang...well. I really don't want to mess with it too much at all. I really plan on trading it in within the next two years. I am putting some new struts on it and front brakes tomorrow morning. That's about it. Oh yeah...the original battery is finally dying, so I will be installing a Duralast Gold this week. Pretty good factory battery to last this long... almost 5 years.

    So yeah...gonna be a good christmas this year which is good since the last few ones were pretty crappy. Well, last year was ok in that I got the xbox 360.

    We have about 7 or 8 inches of snow, and in that snow is about 1/2 inch of ice, because for a while it quit snowing and dumped freezing rain for a while, then started snowing again.

    I got: Seahawks blanket, misc. clothes, and almost enough best buy gift cards to get the flat panel lcd tv I want.
    I have been driving with snow cables on for the last 3 days and it SUCKS. I should be able to take them off tomorrow.
