tricked out my car

I have an old car. In fact, it was built in May 1987, so just celebrated its 20th birthday! Woo hoo.

A great thing about old cars is that you can shut off the lights and "run silent" in dark conditions. I personally find this handy for a variety of reasons. If I'm camping, and returning to my site with say a trunk load of supplies, I can avoid disturbing my fellow campers by turning off my headlights.

Today, I added a feature to the car that will prove favourable to my fellow astronomers. I installed a cut-off switch on the reverse light circuit. So now, when I grab reverse gear, I can prevent the large white reverse lights from coming on.
