We are living in a time where we have some amazing products available for restorating the look of our beloved cars. If you have dull or faded black trim on your car, there are a number of products out there that can miraculously bring back the original black color of the trim. I’d like to share my thoughts on one of these products, Forever Black Bumper & Tire Conditioner.
Drying cars with a cars on a waxed or coated car with battery-powered blower is great, however typically they come with a long attachment that makes it difficult to use with drying off cars. This is where a “stubby” or short nozzle comes into use. The most popular one out there is called the Stubby Car Drying Nozzle made by the Stubby Nozzle Company.
MUCAR is a seller of OBD2 scanner tools that allow you to scan, research, and clear codes. They also offer additional diagnostics software you can download to the scan tool. I received this device, the MUCAR CDE900 Pro from MUCAR in exchange for a review. So, I will do my best to talk about my experience with the device so far, both good and bad.
One of the best modifications you can do on any vehicle that doesn’t cost a lot of money and makes your car look a lot better is a headlight restoration. I’ve tried others like the 3M headlight lens restoration kit in the past, but this time around I wanted to test out the Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit. Unlike the 3M Kit which requires a power drill, this Sylvania Kit can be done all by hand.
A couple months ago, I did a review on MUCAR’s JS501 2-in-1 Jump Starter/OBD2 Scan Tool. I found it to be a useful tool that comes in really helpful when you need to check for engine trouble codes or if you need to jump start a dead battery. MUCAR supplied me with their more powerful JS502 Jump Starter with OBD2 Scanner, which is essentially the same unit but with a higher capacity battery and more powerful jump starter for bigger engines.
As opposed to a thermal imaging camera that connects to your phone, which will likely give you a better display image (utilizing your phone’s display), it won’t be as easy to use as a handheld one like this TOPDON unit. The TC004 has a great build quality that is easy to use and handle, and it has many useful features especially for the car DIY’er.
I’ve used my BRIDJIT Curb Ramp for 5+ years now and it works really well. The quality is very good, it has held up over time, and it does exactly what it promises which is to keep your car from scrapping or bumping into the rolled curb. There are also some added features that I like, which include the channel drain that allows surface runoff to pass underneath the ramp. I also like that it is extremely heavy, as it helps to deter theft.
This Rust-Oleum Automotive Primer I purchased was from Amazon so I was able to get it within a couple of days. The one I got is a standard light gray color, although I do know it is also sold in a white and dark gray color as well. It gets a ton of great reviews online and it is intended to be used for automotive applications. However, there is one major flaw on this paint and it has to do with the spray pattern.
Some of the nicest looking floor jacks that I’ve seen are the Daytona Floor Jacks from Harbor Freight. Now, I know looks aren’t everything, but if they perform well too, I’ll be happy. I also wanted a low-profile jack as I hate it when you slide a floor jack under your car, only to find that you can’t even fit it underneath the lift point.
