Customize Car Seat Covers

Tie and dye

This is ideal when you are operating on a tight budget. You should buy white car covers and large rubber bands. You should also buy at least four colors of your favorite dye.

While sectioning off large and small areas of your covers, you should place each of your favorite dyes in a large bucket and dip each section of the cover in the bucket. For ideal results you should ensure that the car cover is saturated with the dye.

Applique

This is where you customize the seat cover using your favorite sports team logo. You can also customize it using your favorite cartoon character or flower image. You should start by buying a fabric with images that you like. To make your work easy, you should choose a fabric with images that are large enough.

Once you have found the fabric, you should cut the images out and identify where you want to place them on the covers. You should then iron the image on the seat cover.

For ideal results you should ensure that you use the correct heat setting on the iron. To prevent melting of the synthetic material, you should place a piece of fabric between the iron and cover.

You should finish the appliqué by sewing the edges of the image onto the car cover.

About Wheel Balancing

It is the distribution of the weight of the vehicle across the four tyres. If the vehicle is not properly distributed across all the tyres, it causes the vehicle to be unbalanced or out of balance.

If the wheels are unbalanced, then it could cause a vibration when you drive which makes it a very unpleasant experience. The first sign that indicates unbalanced wheels is when your steering wheel starts to wobble when you reach a certain speed. It can also cause the premature wear of the tyres, the suspension, and the steering components. So it is quite important to have it checked when you notice that wheels are unbalanced.

The solution to this problem is relatively easy. When you feel the vibration, take your car to a wheel and fitment centre that makes use of superior equipment. They will take the car for a test drive to monitor the vibration and the sounds. Then they will conduct a test in the fitment centre. With the selected equipment, they will balance the wheels. They will take the car for a final test drive to monitor whether the vibration has been eliminated. Then the car will be handed over to you. It is advisable for you to perform your own test drive once you leave the wheel and tyre fitment centre. Drive the speed that previously caused the vibrations to check if the steering wobbles and feel for any vibrations. These issues should be resolved, so there should be no odd occurrences while you’re driving.

Wheels that are correctly balanced will eliminate the vibration and avoid the premature wear of the rotating wheel and tyre assembly. If you are vigilant to any sounds or vibrations on your vehicle, you’ll have a good driving experience all the time.

Take Care Of Car

You should check the oil and change it on time. You can’t extend the life of your vehicle without changing its oil and filter. On the other hand, if you want to destroy your engine, you should stop changing its oil.

Although washing the exterior of the car is recommended, you should do it anyway. Aside from this, hosing off road grime and winter salt is also a great idea.

You should flush your cooling system and then change the coolant every year. If you want to maintain your cooling system, we suggest that you create a mixture with an equal amount of distilled water and coolant. This is to prevent deposits and corrosion from accumulating in the cooling system.

You should change the differential oil and transmission. Although these fluids don’t require frequent service, they must be changed based on the service frequency. What you need to do is use gear oil and transmission fuel of the right viscosity and type.

keep in mind that every vehicle with parts that move requires grease in order to stand the test of time. Actually, the ball joint life decreases because of poor lubrication.

If you want to keep the paint looking great and protected, we suggest that you apply a coat of high quality wax. You may want to use wax a minimum of twice per year.

Driveline parts like u-joints also need lubrication on a regular basis. Aside from this, the driveline may need to be removed in order to get access to the fitting of zerk grease.

You should protect the internal plastic if you park your car in the shade with a UV protector and a window deflector. This will prevent the vinyl and plastic from drying out.

Buff a Car

Choose a Buffer

For fine results, it’s better to work with a high-speed buffer as they are better at eliminating blemishes and scratches thoroughly. However, make sure you practice using this type of buffer.

Orbital buffer: for better results, we suggest that you try out a random orbital buffer. The great thing about these buffers is that they are not hard to use. Moreover, random orbital buffers make use of less compound relatively. Therefore, they are cost-effective.

Manual buffing: if you can’t bear high costs, use manual buffing. However, keep in mind that manual buffing requires a lot of effort, and the results won’t be impressive. On the other hand, manual buffing doesn’t require lots of equipment.

Compound or polishing product: you can also buy a compound of polishing product for best results. If the finish has deep scratches, you should go for this option. On the other hand, polisher is used when the body paint is good but needs better shine. Actually, this decision will vary based on the model, age and condition of the car. With the buffer, you can use either of the products. You can ask your friends, or good car aficionados for product recommendations.

Buffing

First of all, you should dry your vehicle with a soft towel. In order to make sure that the vehicle is dry, you should work on the whole unit.

Next, you should apply lots of compound or polisher to the car body. Ideally, you should start with the hood.

Put the buffer on your quality polishing product and then move it around for proper application. Moreover, you should use circular motions for buffing each area of the vehicle.

Moreover, if you are going to use a good powered buffer, you should switch the product on and then move your quality buffer in a circular motion.
