Dirty perverts. Get a room.

 

Gauge pod solution? Mickey Mouse nonsense!

So I wanted to do some gauge pods, and I’m not a huge fan of the A pillar pod look. Nor was I looking for pods to replace my dash vents or pods on the dashboard itself. In stumbling around on the nets I found some pics of people who did some integrated with their gauge bezel. That seemed like a great solution to me so I figured I would have at it.

Alternator replacement, swapping out the strangled hamster for the juicy swizzle stick

So the old alternator was giving up the ghost. Flickering battery light when coming to a stop and a horrendous noise that sounded of a chorus comprised of a thousand strangled hamsters.

Popping your nuts with Stanley. Rivnut tool & ANL fuse install



So I’m putting an ANL fuse holder and a fused power block in the car and I needed a good way to mount them on the firewall. To accomplish this I got a rivnut/pop nut tool kit. I’ve used pop rivets before but not pop threaded inserts so this is a bit of a tool review here.

DIY battery cables

I can't take credit for this method, but it does work well, I'm doing it, so might as well write it up..

Bracing the floppy floppy cargo cover

If you have hauled anything heavy or maybe the previous owner wasn’t so careful, you probably had a spare tire cover that shared some similar structural properties as a pringle.

Update and such

It's been a bit since I've made an update. Largely because I've been working with dirty metal and stopping to take pics with the ipad tends to get it all sorts of dirty. So I need to figure out a way to keep the ipad clean but still get decent pics.

I'm gonna order a case and a screen protector and hope for the best. I have built a welding cart, a garden table and will be doing a coffee table for a friend soon. So I'll try to get some pics of that.

Up front strutting

The continuation of the suspension work. This time sorting out the front.

Finally done with it, so let’s just get right in to the write up while I still have the energy.

Control your arms, on the down low. + springy struttin

In making this thing not such a wallowing hippo on the road I’ve decided to take on the installation. This is the first time I’ve dug into this, and found that it wasn’t too terrible of an undertaking. Though that is a reason I bought an easy to work on Civic.
