    Remote starter solenoid and push button start

    So my car leaves me stranded today. But more than that, I'm also tired of my heatsoak issues. Chevrolet starters have the starter solenoid integrated into the starter unit and that puts it directly beside my header primaries as they come down. Due to the heat they are expeosed to, the car barely...

    Cloudy headlight lenses

    Actually, my headlights are aftermarket and fairly nice looking, I dont really have a problem with them but I notice a lot of people who do. But my parking lamps look absolutely terrible in comparison. I've been annoyed about how terrible they look for a while. See? So I bought this $20 kit...

    Bondo on curb rash

    Just looking for a way to repair some wheels.... If I do the bondo thing... I'll have to paint them, which is fine. But I'm worried about the stuff flaking off at high speed or getting damaged when the tires are mounted/dismounted or balance weights are added. I did a google search and...

    Saw a weird Buick today...

    This thing looked kind of like an Eagle Talon, but it clearly said "BUICK" across the back of it... It clearly wasnt a Talon, but it was proportioned similarly. IT seemed like a 2-seater... a medium-sized "sports" car. I didnt know Buick ever made anything like that. Anyone know what it as...

    How trashed is this clutch?

    I was going to put this in my other thread, but this is a little different in content. This clutch came with a transmission I bought. I was told I can buy a new clutch disk and get the pressure plate refinished, but then I read that 80 percent of the price of a new clutch is the clutch disk...

    How a clutch works...

    American vs European V8s

    Americans V8 have crossplane crankshafts, throws every 90 degrees. It gives them a wonderful sound if you ask me... (see sig) European V8s have single-plane crankshafts, all the throws are on the same plane, or 180 degrees from each other. It gives them a very distinct, but VERY cool sound...
