  1. How To Find Your Ac Information For Your Vehicle

    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.
  2. How To Powdercoat For Beginners

    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.

  3. Good newbie guide to DSLR photography

    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...
  4. Bitchin' S10 Project Part 4 Removing The Front Clip

    By this time, I pretty much couldn't hardly move and had to do even less work than I did when removing the bed. I still did some work on the truck removing parts, but mainly getting all of those busted blind nuts off! I'm not sure where this truck lived its life, but it had to be somewhere that had a lot of salt. Because almost every single one of them broke off!

    Removing the front clip gave us great access to the engine so that we could remove it. I have yet to even edit the footage we...
  5. Bitchin' S10 Project Part 2 Cleaning Out The Bed

    This is part 2 of the Bitchin' S-10 Project. In this video, I clean out the bed to get it ready to take off the truck. This was the time when I stressed my back beyond what it could handle. Shortly after this video, I went into the garage to do a little cleaning to get my tractor in there and that is when all hell broke loose. I have been in pain ever since.

    But to move forward with the truck, it was almost worth it. I now know my limits with my back and what I can and cannot do and what it...
  6. Bitchin' S10 Project Part 3 Removing The Bed

    At this time, my back was in bad shape. Bryan did most of the work and I mainly held the camera while taking the bed off. Thankfully, I had my tractor to help lift the bed off of the frame. If it wasn't for the tractor, I'm not sure we could have gotten it off.

    Taking the bed off did show us a lot in terms of how this truck was cared for, or the lack thereof. Just a little more work for us to do in the future when we get to painting the frame and the rest of the truck.
  7. Tools Needed To Fix Your Own Air Conditioner

    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...
  8. Quick Tip Never Lose Another Spanner Wrench Plus Safety Tip

    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.
  9. Restore Yellow Headlights Correctly

    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...
  10. How To Install Poly Bushings Front Camaro

    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...
