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.

And what I’m swapping over to

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.

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.
