    I had not noticed that the ban had been lifted. Good update.

    He brought up a good point. I would love to change the bulbs in my garage door opener motor but the LED bulbs are too large. The fvxker has these bulb housings on a diagonal and the bulbs won't fit down.

    The reason I want to change the to LED is because the incandescent ones are constantly going out.

    truth is that de la Paz is just upset he can't use his Easy Bake oven anymore. only a 100W incandescent produces enough heat to cook with in one

      Normal bulbs don't take the vibration well, perhaps some special ones would be better for you.

      Why don't you change the door opener?

          It would make more financial sense to just sell the car
