Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

I have a truck that I don't drive very often, a 2003 F-150 and I like it more than the new trucks. It's simpler, smaller, has a COLUMN SHIFTER, and really quite reliable. I don't know why automakers feel the need to make things bigger every time they redesign, that doesn't mean better. Here's my dre...

Re: What is this? Loose part found in toilet tank

Toilet magnet, huh never heard of such a thing. See https://www.lehmans.com/product/toilet-magnets-set-of-4 - you can still buy them, $12.99 for a set of 4. We all know sometimes it's the "crazy" things that really work. Drop magnets (housed in clear plastic) into the tank of your toilet and walk aw...

Re: Da 'Burb

I always try to buy original brand oil filters, simply because they have to meet a high standard. The el cheapo filter makers don’t need to warranty your engine so they don’t necessarily need to give a crap. If GM uses AC Delco filters on new vehicles under warranty then you can trust that brand for...

I see lots of adds on your site now. Is that just me? We made a change to the ad setup about a month and a half ago.

You should try 303 in anything vinyl, rubber, or plastic. Especially black stuff like tire sidewalls and plastic black trim. I'm super impressed with it https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KN0UOEE/ The rust is such a killer here. I'm taking my 03 F150 in to get the rockers & cab corners replaced hopefully ...

Yep, I'm on my 3rd one. I had the Nest, got rid of it when Google bought them. Overall it was pretty good but the whole Goog thing is a separate topic for me. The other downside of that one was that if you didn't walk by the thermostat in the hallway sometimes it would think I was away when I was ho...

No bug guard. If you must, paint protection film is a modern version. If you drive lots it’s probably worth doing the front hood edge. If not, then it’s probably not worth it.

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

In the last ~5 months or so I've started using NuFinish once-a-year car polish because I really don't do car care like I did in my younger years... so far I'm happy with it. It makes the car easier to clean because I hand wash my vehicles 99% of the time. In my opinion the boutique (expensive) detai...

$20/mo for unlimited washes? Wow, cheapest I've found around here is $199 for a 90 day pass (max one wash per day).

Re: The Official Useless Post Thread

Typical dish soap strips off wax and polishes, that's why it's not recommended for washing your car. If you never wax or polish your car you probably don't need to worry about it but if you wax your car to help protect the clearcoat and make it easier to clean in the future then you are working agai...

Just for giggles here's the main bunch of water lines before they disappear into the wall. Now that I'm looking it over, just wait a minute! I see two copper hex fittings on the red handle ball valve on the left of the first pic. That is the water line that goes down to the other red valve and down ...

Is this what we're talking about (with a valve sweated on)? Galvanized inside the wall...? Literally every other piece of visible water lines in the building all appears to be copper. I don't see a shred of any other galvanized pipe. Even the main supply goes down behind the water heater as copper, ...
