    HAHAHA! I realize without context this makes no sense. My hose is on my patio which is like 200 - 300 ft. from the shady spot in the parking lot. Initially went out with 2 buckets of fresh water and 1 bucket of soapy water. Ended up needing more water to rinse, so I grabbed 2 more buckets of clean water.

    Use at least 2. One for soap, one to rinse the cloth before going back to the soap with a dirty mit. You'll significantly reduce the likelihood that you'll scratch the paint with dirt you picked up.

    I usually use the wash bucket for the wheels after I'm done with the car. But that's mostly cause I've gotta carry the water. LOLOL

    I do my wheels first with some kind of wheel cleaner and then last with a wash cloth and shammy.

    Thanks Webby! Hopefully someone else will try this, maybe Pauly can do it blue like everything else. lol I thought about maybe doing more lights in the car red, but thinking that might be a bit too much if I did.
    Took a while, but I really wanted to see this through. These were extras from another wheel so I thought what is the worst that can happen. It will work or it won't.
    Thanks man! I thought the SI's were done in red? Of course I just assumed, but it makes sense it would. I did this thinking that it would now look like the SI's steering wheel. Never seen a SI interior.

    I like it. Simple yet effective. I really like the steering wheel accent lighting.

    Thanks man and I would say give it a shot. Its not too bad and if you do not feel comfortable you can go to one of those cell phone repair shops where they solder and ask them if they are willing and it might be a small fee. Just be aware of the led orientation and test it if possible. You can put 3 volts to it and the LED will light up, but I don't recall if it does it anyway or if that's how it will read when all hooked up.

    SO Clean.

    I always like to ask, what method do you use to clean your engine bay? It seems like such an undertaking that I never want to even start. How long would you say it took you?
