This weekend was pretty productive Mirage wise. I've been working on all of these projects for a while now and haven't really updated my thread here. But, I am now, so big picture dump time!

I ended up finishing up instructions for installing a glove box light kit that I designed. Still gotta write up the DIY, but I got all the pictures for it.







I also finished installing a DIY solution to enable the OEM cruise control. It consists of a switch panel I made up on the 3d printer, some switches and resistors. I also had to install a clutch switch and replace the brake switch with a different one, as well as reprogram the ECU to enable the cruise control system. Sounds complicated, but its not that bad. Here are some pics.













I also got a rear sway bar made up for the car and installed on it. Wow, it makes a huge difference. The car now feels like a normal car vs a 70s Caddy.


Last, but not least. I had my 2nd fill up with a disappointing 38.1 mpg. I blame the cold weather.
