How To Make An Industrial Light Sculpture

DIY, Videos
September 6, 2016 No Comments

I was walking around downtown Seattle during my lunch and walked by a furniture store when these light bulb sculptures caught my eye. After researching them online. I found out they are used/old “industrial factory bulbs”. When mounted on a piece of wood, they look really cool.

Please support the artists that originally thought of and made them, but if you want to do a variation of your own — this is an easy project to learn woodworking and creating a piece of art.

The Right Way To Clean Brake Dust Off Rims Using Sonax Full Effect

July 2, 2016 No Comments

My least favorite part about washing/detailing my car is cleaning the brake dust off the wheels. Mostly because the cleaners I’ve used in the past either seemed to emit extremely toxic fumes or left behind fine dust that required additional scrubbing. That’s why I like the Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner. First, this stuff is “Made in Germany” so it must be great, right? Second, it turns red when it’s working — visual indication! Third, it just works — no fuss, no muss! Spray onto dry, cool wheels, wait a minute or two, then rinse off.

I take my car to our local self-service Brown Bear Car Wash and use the pressure washer setting to rinse the spray off. Using this process I don’t have to do any additional scrubbing — it works like magic! I then use a microfiber cloth to dry/clean the rim to a factory new finish.

If you guys adopt my method of wheel cleaning, you’ll be able to spend more time cleaning the rest of your car than spending wasted time on your rims.

How To Fix Minor Curb Rash Scratches On Alloy Wheel (Diamond Turned)

June 17, 2016 No Comments

I’ve never curbed a wheel before! Well, until this time — my first time. I was actually letting my wheels get dirty because I’m going to do a review of a wheel cleaner for a next video (so that’s why my wheels are so dirty!). Here’s what happened — I was parking at an end spot (to avoid any door dings) and as I was pulling into the space, I maneuvered a bit to close to the curb and nicked my rim. It was one of those really short curbs that was the perfect height as where my rim meets tire. Just felt like a slight bump… bummer!
