DIY - Tire Paint for Temporarily White Lettering


This is a real simple and quick DIY on how to make your tires temporarily have white letters , You can find this at O'riellys Auto Part store . They come in 3 colors . It's made by Dupli Color tire paint . The one I'm using is the white one HT-100 . 

Make sure before you do this you have plenty of time to let this dry , It at least needs 5 days of water free and 24 hours at least before driving . 



Make sure you clean all of the tire with alcohol before you apply this , you want to make sure you have any tire shine off or grease off the tire so that the paint will stick , Follow the directions because you have to shake it for a while and every time you apply , Make sure the letters are on top so you can push down like a pen . Follow and trace your tire .





Once you finish you can apply tire shine .

Apply more when needed , this does fade and some times cracks ,

The good thing about this :

It's temporally 
Looks nice 
Can last long time 

The bad thing about this is 

It fades 
If you have stretched tires it scrapes off on the road so you must re apply as needed

DIY How to Remove Plasti Dip

This is a DIY on how to remove plasti dip off your vehicle safely .

I recently plasti dip the center of my wheels and I wanted to remove the plasti dip . I found out that if you do not put alot of coats of the plasti dip then it will not peel off easily . 

After research I learned that Goo Gone for Automotive is safe for clear coats . This has citrus formula in it , 





It is good of you can find a spray bottle and pour the goo gone in the container so that you can spray and let the goo gone sit for about a minute to soak the plasti dip then it will be easily to wipe off . 



As you can see in this photo the plasti dip is peeling up .


As a final step I sprayed the wheels again with goo gone then gave a final wipe , from there I sprayed Dr. Mechanico to remove any grease or oil left behind , This degrease is safe for your wheels because it is organic degrease . It wont eat the oil from your hands like the other kinds .

Once you sprayed your degrease then you can wash with car soap and if you happen to spray the goo gone with your wheels on makes sure you degrease the rotors then take it for a test drive to make sure your brakes burn off any chemicals on the rotors .

DIY Corolla 98 - 02 Brake Light Switch Replacement


This is a DIY for a brake light switch replacement on a Corolla . This can DIY can be use on most Toyota vehicles or others cause the switch is located on most cars in the same area .



Follow the brake pedal all the way up till you see where the power brake booster shaft and the pedal shaft meet . From there you will remove the small spring that keeps the pedal forward . Once you remove the spring you will see the brake light switch .



The easiest way to remove this is to unplug the switch first then with a open end wrench there is a nut that locks the switch to the frame , one you loosen that nut then you can unscrew the switch from the bracket . 



Then you put the switch back , Now there is a plastic piece that the button pushes on , make sure that the plastic piece is still there and not cracked or broken , Sometimes these go first and give false readings , In this case your brake lights will stay on constantly . 



Make sure you adjust the pedal to the switch , You want to as soon as you step on the brakes that the back lights come on . You must be careful you don't kill the battery when you do this cause the brake lights will stay on until switch is installed properly . Once you have it adjusted then you tighten the locking nut to the frame . Make sure you put the spring back on as well .
