I got my xB back up and running today. Well, actually my buddy did. I bought a new battery, and after installing it, it wouldn't start up. My friend came over and took a look, he's my automobile guru, and he diagnosed that the aftermarket alarm system someone had installed (improperly) had come loose under the dash, and apparently resetting the battery made it flip out.
So we completely removed it. All better now, very happy.
Garage time over the weekend. Upholstered the headliner the door panel inserts redoing the speaker box today, installing 9 TVs, upholstering the rear hatch panel, been making wheel light rings and under body kit to match. Paint work almost done.
