I was discussing some detailing issues with a friend who recommended a lot of different stuff to me. His biggest concern was my use of a glaze when I should be using a Dual Action buffing machine and proper compounds to smooth out the finish on my car. I also talked to him about how my car could use a respray in certain spots due to chips in the paint to which he suggested touch up paint
I've been having an issue with My Sony head unit lately where it won't play all of the music on my USB flash drive. I've always wanted a touch screen head unit both for entertainment purposes and for running gauges, plus I've got a Raspberry-Pi and a touch screen for it already so I figured I might have to give it a go.
What do you guys think? Should I go through with it and make something cool?
#Winter #Snow #Tire Pennsylvania had it's first snow over the weekend and I found out just how "good" my snow tires are. After this season I'm replacing them. What tire do you guys and girls recommend for dealing with cold temps and snow?
It looks like this product may finally have a US supplier. After I reviewed the towel on here and another automotive forum, my UK contact spoke with the owner of Raceglaze. If enough interest is shown, these towels will be available stateside at a cheaper price than I had mentioned in my review. $10 shipped is the estimated price. All I need to know is: which of you would be interested in buying one? This isn't a commitment, just
It's pretty much the weekend so that means more time for car stuff. I'm probably just doing some small detailing like applying more AnGEL to faded plastics and measuring my dash to see if I can fit a 7" touch screen where my head unit is.
What kind if car stuff are you guys and girls getting in to this weekend?
#Review #Detailing #Saab #Shiny It's time to finish off the reviews of the 3 detailing products I received from the UK. Last, but certainly not least, is the Poorboy's Black Hole glaze.
For the most part, my Saab's paint and body work was in good shape. The hood, however, was faded and chipped and in desperate need of some attention.
Here's what I started with. A car that was freshly cleaned and dried, nothing else. You can see that the
#ToolboxTuesday When the weather starts getting worse you have to change up what you carry with you in case of emergencies.
I personally like to carry a bucket of cheap kitty litter, an ice scraper, and extra low temperature windshield washer fluid on top of my usual stuff.
What do you consider to be a "must have" tool in your car for winter time?
Now that I have my "Summer" wheels off of my Saab I think it's time to start looking for a brand name tire to replace them with that actually hooks up rather than what I currently have that fights to get grip even with my untuned setup. I need something that is grippy for "spirited" driving but long lasting enough to be good on a daily driver with the occasional road trip.
So my question is: What kind of tire
#Saab #detailing #clean After trying all sorts of interior cleaning products and having pretty much no luck in getting this annoying adhesive residue off I decided to take drastic measures.
The final death blow to this eyesore was some Good Gone and a lot of elbow grease. There's still a tiny remnant of it but it's more than good enough for now. Unfortunately, I now have a super clean spot in the center of my dash. I'll definitely have
What car related shenanigans do you guys have going on this weekend? I'm planning on fixing a grounding issue in my Saab, detailing it a little more, and if everything goes right maybe reflashing my ECU.
#Saab #Tuned #Project_Car #Turbo #Boost I finally received the spare ECU I ordered to start tuning my Saab. I'm so excited to finally be able to get the most out of my bigger turbo and exhaust and get rid of that pesky fuel cut
#Review #Angelwax #AnGEL #Detailing Last week I received a package from the UK containing various detailing products. In this package was a clear sample bottle with just the word "Dashboard" written on it. As it turned out this little sample bottle contained a product known as Angelwax AnGEL Dash Renovator. The dash in my Saab has seen better days and has what appears to be remnants of some sort of adhesive that's baked in to my dash. No product
#Detail #Review #Raceglaze #Saab With winter weather on the way and it having been months since I washed my car I decided it was time to do a good detailing and review some products I received from a friend in the UK.
First up was the Raceglaze One Pass drying towel.
I started by taking my car to a car wash (Sacrilege, I know) and gave it a good scrubbing. I then drove about a block back to my working area.
#Saab #WinterIsComing #Steelies I finally got a chance to get my winter wheels on and my new E-brake cable installed so she's ready for snow. I just need to clean and detail it good one last time before the weather gets bad
I've been wondering what the "best" chassis for a project car would be. I'm thinking something that can handle daily driver duty but occasionally be taken to the track (road course type) on the weekend. What are your thoughts?
