Repairing and retexturing a Ford Explorer bumper cover
This video demonstrates, from start to finish, how to repair a textured
plastic bumper cover using a hot air plastic welder. After the plastic
welding is complete, the dents and low spots in the bumper are filled with
epoxy filler which is then sanded down to match the original contour. The
bumper cover is then retextured with MicroTex texture material from
Urethane Supply Company. Finally, the bumper cover is painted with Bumper
and Cladding Coat so that it matches the original color.

2013 Chevy Equinox v Ford Explorer v Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Road Mashup AWD Tech Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and the Ford
Explorer and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Overland don't have a lot in
common. However all three of these vehicle have a very different approach
to powering all four wheels, in other words, they all have one form or
another of all-wheel-drive and terrain management technology. We thought it
would be interesting, informative and fun to try these three very different
AWD vehicles off-road in a real world test to see which one can best handle
our Colorado Mountain off-road terrain. In this battle of 4X4 people
haulers we take all three vehicles up our standard rugged Colorado trail to
see which one can make it all the way to the top. Check out another fun and
real world TFLcar Mashup test as we get wet, muddy and rocky in this
off-road AWD technology comparison and review.
Why you need an after-market wiring harness or module for your STEREO INSTALL / Deck Install
http://www.gofasthavefun.ca | http://www.metraonline.com
Don't cut your vehicle's wiring harness, use the proper parts! In this
video I go over the basics of aftermarket wiring interfaces when a stereo /
deck installation is being performed.
I explain why it's a very good idea to use the proper parts, that way you
know you're hooking up all the correct wires and making sure your speakers
are hooked up properly and in phase.
In this video I show you products from PAC Audio, Best Kits and Scosche.

2000 Ford Ranger Pioneer Double Din DVD TV / MB Quart Factory Replacement
I REALLY wish I would have had more time to film installing the deadener
behind the speakers in the doors etc. but I just simply ran out of time (as
usual). These things always seem to take more time than you think they
will. Discovering the factory unit with trim is only a DIN and a half as
opposed to a double din was not a nice surprise LOL. With some skillful
dremeling though I made it fit in there like a glove. The AUdio TEchnix
made a big difference as well with the midbass as you'll hear in the demo
song in the next video. Teach me how to dougie has some real clean 808 in
it and it sounds like a night and day difference from the stock setup. The
same day we installed this he texted me and said he wants louder already so
we will be putting an amp in there for the 5 x 7's. I might use a 5 channel
amp so we can get a sub or two in his extended cab area. Thanks for
