This article was originally written by me (@Tony) over on overclock.net, a forum I used to belong to and use to do a lot of powder coating for the members on there. This turned into a full time business after I made this article. The exact same methods can be used for automotive as well, and in fact, I will be firing up my powder coating adventure once again very soon for the S10 project. So stay tuned. But for now, this is the old article. I will make a new one when I get setup. Hello...
Over or under charging your AC system can cause all kinds of issues when the summer heat hits. In this video I show you how and where to find the info on filling your AC system so you know exactly how much refrigerant to put in it. These numbers are for a bone dry system with a vacuum pulled on it. If you are just topping the system off, you have to go about that a little differently, and I will explain that in a later video.
What is an internal combustion engine? It is responsible for turning an air/fuel mixture into motion. It does this by burning the mixture inside the engine to utilize the power output of the combustion explosion. There are different kinds of internal combustion engines like diesel or gas turbine. However, for the purpose of this article we are talking about ones utilizing gasoline as its primary fuel source. In order to understand how an engine works, a look at engine makeup is required....
This is a write-up of the trip I took with my son to document the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour. It was a fantastic trip. I had just finished working on my car two days before we had to leave for the trip, which made thigns very exciting! Anyway, I had written this up on antoher website and thought I'd share it here. I hope you enjoy the commentary and the pictures. It is a very memorable event for me ... another one of those bucket list items checked off ... unfortunately I think I have added it...
Air conditioning systems scare more people than just about anything else in a vehicle. I'm not sure if it is because the system is under pressure, tightly sealed or what, but it scares a lot of people. I'm here to tell you, it doesn't have to be that way. In this video, I'm going to show you the tools you are going to need to work on your OWN AC system. From Manifolds to Vacuum Pumps, we will be diving closer into these items in future videos. If you have any suggestions, post a comment...
Don't you hate it when you can't find that wrench for your 4.5" angle grinder, or any other wrench like that for that matter? Here is a little quick tip for you guys that not only keeps you safe and removes the risk of the grinder powering up on you if you accidentally hit that switch, but you will ALWAYS be able to find the wrench for that tool when you need it.
What's up guys and gals. I thought I would post up a how-to on installing poly bushings from Prothane. I had noticed that my steering was really loose so I started checking the front end out. On the passenger side, I could grab the upper control arm and move it front and back about 1/2", not good. So, i ordered this kit and started the install on the passenger side. There are no pics from that side other than the completed pics. This is cause the drivers side is exactly the same with the...
Part 1 - Aperture, Shutter Speed, & ISO First and foremost, we need to cover the 3 main settings you should be adjusting on your Digital SLR and the relationship they share with one and other: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. In the world of photography, light is everything. These 3 settings control how much light enters your camera or how your camera processes that light, so understanding what each setting controls and the relationship between the settings is critical to taking a properly...
I have seen so many videos out there of the "newest" way to restore a headlight and let me tell you, fucking toothpaste will NOT WORK!!! You need to do it properly and in this video that is exactly what I do. The kit that I"m using is from 3M and it is the best $15 I have ever spent! As you can see in the video, I have taken lights that are horribly yellowed and restored them to a perfectly clear lens. Why would you want to do this? When a light gets hazy or yellow, it will start...
