Steam & Upholstery Cleaner
I picked up a steamer and a heated upholstery cleaner to clean the seats in my wagon, as well as just take care of other things that need steamed or cleaned. I’ll write up a proper review at a later date, for the time being I just wanted to post up this image of what came out of the bottom of one of the clean seats.
And holy hell, out of the bottom of the back seat that was actually in the car. Jaysus!
She’s not there, but I was
Seat cover/foam replacement 88-89 civic to 90-91 civic.
This covers swapping foam and the cover from an 88-89 over to the frame of a 90-91 civic wagon. This is for the front seats, and can also apply to same year swaps. Also it might just come in handy for taking the seat apart if you’re going to be repairing the foam.
The grossness that I was sitting on before.
Kwik-lift ramps. Tool fantasy fulfilled
So I’ll start with saying I have wanted these for a long time. If you’re not familiar with the company check out kwik-lift.com
The gist of it is that they are ramps, you drive the car on to and then jack up the low side via cross bar. Then there are fold down legs that basically turn the ramps into a mini lift. Great for if you don’t have a high garage or the proper slab and funds to afford a two post lift.
Below is just a picture dump, it’s dark out but I couldn’t help but to test the, out. I’ll get better pics with the daylight.
Here you can see the ramps in their first position. Yes I have a bunch off shit in the garage, forgive me, I’m working on it.
Anole Ya Know!
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.
