I like lighter colored interiors in cars and I cannot lie — but the issue is they’re always not that practical, especially if you wear denim jeans daily. Here’s a quick tip I learned for dealing with light colored interior so if you start noticing your leather car seats have a blue tinge to them (or they’re just dirty) you’ll know what to do. Now, if you are here because you searched on “how to get denim jean rub stains off of light car leather interior”, you’re also in luck! I have the solution and it works like magic.

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

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!

As I’m trying to building up my YouTube Channel (please subscribe!) — I’ve decided to revisit my most popular posts here at Mavromatic. The plan is to create videos of these posts so people can watch instead of just read. I find that video often times makes the process of understanding complex things a little easier.

My TED 5000 (more about the product here and here) whole house power monitor by The Energy Detective that I’ve been using for years stopped working properly. The date/time would no longer keep after a power outage causing the logging of the data to get all messed up. I thought I’d try to repair it — this is my first on camera repair video.

Come along with me and see if I am successful with my repair…

I’ve been running DD-WRT on the Linksys WRT54G for about 6 years with no issues. But Amazon had the Linksys WRT1200AC on sale so I decided to upgrade to the latest model — have to say the WRT1200 is a whole lot faster than the WRT54G. As you can see in the video, the install process is also amazingly quick and you’ll be up and running in no time!

It’s been a while since I last uploaded a video to YouTube. In this video I give an update on my YouTube channel, a neat Fusion 360 tip (attaching canvas and using the calibrate feature), show an extremely basic process of designing something in Fusion 360, sending it to Simplify3D slicer then printing on the 3D Printer.  I will be posting more videos on YouTube so please subscribe to my channel as it definitely puts wind in my sails and influences the type of content I create.
