    My 12 volt battery pissed the bed and it is IMPOSSIBLE to find one in my area. I called NTB, P Bois, etc with no luck. All are screwed and playing the waiting game. I ordered a yellow top off of Amazon with hopes of installing it myself, since I have no choice. I guess mother is indeed the...

I've been "experimenting" with my current car in order to get some numbers figured out, and see if I actually enjoy it. But I don't like the idea of using this car for...
