Easy to please, though a bit picky.

I feel, compared to other car enthusiasts, that I'm easy to please. But I have some unique pickiness too. For example, I have a conversion van and am quite pleased with the cabinets, raised roof and DVD player. However, I really want to mod a solar panel on the hood to lower the extra draw some features put on the battery when it's off. You?

When it comes to tricking out your ride, you sound more high maintenance then easy to please. A solar panel as an accessory though? That sounds nice.

Lol, Has anyone tried to use a solar panel? I guess it depends on what part of the country you're driving in to see if it's cost effective. But if you've got money to burn it doesn't matter

I don't know if 100% solar panel would ever be possible to be honest. You'd have to generate a TON of energy from just a little bit of sunshine in order to make it work. Or it would only be able to function in areas that are sunny like 90% of the time.

Ahaha! I laugh shocked at that statement because among the people I know they call me laid back. You should see how some of my friends trick out their rides. I guess I can sound a bit high maintenance to those who aren't surrounded by people painting and lowering or raising their wheelbase every other day.

As far as a 100% solar panel it would be nice, but I'm only looking to account for about an extra 600mA draw that occurs when the car is off.

I guess "High Maintenance" is a relative term depending on who's giving the label. You can't really have a set definition. That's funny though, it would be interesting to see some of your friends vehicles!

I know a lot of high maintenance people. I suppose if I'm honest I could say that in some ways, I'm high maintenance. Certainly, some vehicles are the same way. They absolutely need attention with frequency. As for solar panels, in a car? I'd like to see it.

I think most cars are pretty high maintenance, at least those that I have had. If you are modifying your car on a daily or weekly basis like most people seem to do you are certainly picky!!

I agree that a lot of cars do need a good deal of maintenance, at least if you want them running at peak performance. It can be easy to overdo things a bit as well. But hey, everyone needs a hobby

This is a good idea. This can save lot of energy too. I never thought of having a solar panel in my truck. But where to buy it?
