Default Post a Pic of Your Latest Purchase - Part 2

Since the old thread for this got closed, I think it's time to start a new one. So let's post a pic of our latest purchases.

Here's mine.

Last week, I figured out that I didn't have any good micro USB cables left for charging cell phones and the like. So I ordered a box of six Anker brand cables from Amazon and I ordered one nylon braided cable to put in my car. Maybe the braided cable will last longer.

Glad to see this thread got started, again, sorry to see that the original one was closed as it was interesting

Not a big item, but they look pretty good.

Today, I got in some lift struts I ordered for the hood on my son's Dodge Ram.

Normally, I buy the Armstrong struts. But my son asked how much a new set of headlight assemblies would be for his truck and I told him about $100. He asked if that was each? And I said no, I could get a quality pair for a bout $100 a set. So got on Amazon and the DEPO brand (that I really like) was only $40 each with free shipping.

So I loaded a left and right headlight in my cart and then I looked down at the bottom of the page where Amazon shows you stuff that other folks bought along with the stuff you are getting. And there was a pair of lift struts for $13.63 for the set. I knew my son's truck needed some, so I snagged those too. He will still get out under $100.

I found out last week that I was missing the hood weatherstripping.
Picked it up new for $36.

Just bought another brand new Mopar subwoofer for the PT Cruiser from Cass Daniels on eBay. The number of these left is finite. I've had one in each of my last two PT's. And I wanted to snag one now for my next project before they are all gone.

After trying one I found them to be ok for a sound system upgrade beginner and still a bargain price a PT Cruiser stock sound system. But for a Audiophiles taste in music they don't exactly" kick" so to say the sound without changing parts and bypassing other's when installing it. Also unless you upgrade the rest of the speakers to at least the premium OEM or aftermarket the response is sorta of flat and hollow in the low end. As for availability I am guessing that Cas didn't tell about there origin? A good phone call to him explains a lot about why there seems to be so many of them. Think about your resent gauge purchase. They will be around a long time, that is as long as people buy them. You know I always like the ebay and amazon ads that say 1 left.
Now all Cas has to do is offer one with a better speaker and maybe a more ample amp.....

As a thought and helpful recommendation I suggest that people that get them at least pack it with polyfill to fool the speaker in thinking it is in a larger area.
