A How-To video on repairing a chair leg. There are multiple ways of doing this, but this way worked best for me. Hopefully this gives you some ideas on how to repair your broken chair leg. Enjoy.
This is what happens when you use cheap drywall anchors – they will spin in the drywall and create a gaping hole. To solve this, TOGGLER makes an anchor kit specifically for hollow areas – you can purchase this at most hardware stores. In my case, the hole in the drywall was so big that […]
When replacing the EVAP purge valve (valve that re-circulates the gases in the gas tank) the embedded nuts in the canister rust-weld and fall right out – especially for those in a northern climate. To fix this, remove the embedded nuts entirely and go to your local automotive store to pick up a pair of […]
Since the original tabs were broken on the speaker covers, I came up with a new way of attaching them to the interior “A” pillar piece. Home Depot sells these nylon based nuts and bolts. With a black coat of paint, they fit right in.
The upholstery on the centre console/armrest is now complete. The openings for the shifter and the window switches were created.
The interior pieces came back from upholstery, and all I can say is WOW. I can’t wait to get these installed! The pictures don’t do them justice.
I’m just finishing off a few outstanding items: – Completion of the glove box with magnets. – Addition of a multi-switch plate inside the glove box – I will wire additional lighting (for car shows) to these switches in the future. – Completed the speaker mounts. – Levelled the dash gap piece with Bondo. It […]
The Velcro option was not working well. So I came up with another solution – MAGNETS. I used epoxy to glue a 9″ piece of metal to the glove box door, and I secured 4 magnets to the internal adjuster plate.
I have completed the installation of the HVAC system. The 2.5″ SHOP-VAC tubing was used to run the air-flow, and a plate (made of fiberglass) was fabricated – this allowed the tubes to mount to the stock HVAC outlet. This was a time consuming modification – 6.5 hours total.
The ducts were secured to the fiberglass dash using something called a Chicago nut/bolt fastener – they are also called barrel nuts/bolts. They have a very low profile, so it won’t interfere with the upholstery or the trim pieces. The couplers I glassed in are being used to connect a 2.5″ hose for the HVAC […]
