Re: Windshield Cleaning

Here you can buy the tool for 99 cents (with free shipping) . . . . or, for 4 bucks, you can get the tool and 6 different colored microfiber covers to go with it, so you won't have to spend $40 to have one to apply and another one to polish! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Microfiber-Windshield-Clean-Cloth...

Re: Windshield Cleaning

The tool that does the trick is this thing, as it allows one to reach everywhere without too much contorting: http://www.invisibleglass.com/Products/automotive/tool Some evidently have two of these tools: one for application and one for buffing the windshield. Good idea, but if ever there was a $5 ...

Re: Best way to Repair Paint Scratches On A White 2012

The white is a multi-step paint process. We had a new front bumper cover professionally repainted after an accident and the body shop did a very good job matching the rest of the car. I fear a DIY job on scratches might look worse than the scratches, but you could always give it a go and if it turns...

Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

I wonder if there is room to insulate around that heater? Why not install a check valve to make sure none of your diesel heated water flows through that cold heater core under the car? There are a few who have insulated everything under the car having to do with the heating system - There are threa...

Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

You do want 100% of your hot water to flow to the heater core within the car and then back to your fuel heater to be reheated - You don't need to be flowing any diesel heated water through the uninsulated electric heater under the car which would waste a good percentage of your heat.

Re: Electric Car Review Talking Points

Until publications get some reviewers who cut their teeth on EV's, and actually know what they're looking for, there's not much hope, I fear. If his/her credentials are that they've reviewed 50 or 100 ICE's in their career, I think we can just forget about anything he/she may have to say about any n...

Re: My JuiceBox has gone wonky

Since it's just the app that's not working, maybe it's something simple . . . . like a Bluetooth error?

Re: Marketing the USED I-MIEV

That's a great result - You found the 'right' buyer, got a record setting price (about $12,750 USD) and both parties are very happy . . . . and you taught us all something too!
