"How to Paint rims with Rustoleum" wheel paint part 2 Paint and clear
"Rustoleum wheel paint" This paint lays down smoother than any other paint
I have ever used. I use 1 can of paint per wheel and 1 full can of clear
for each wheel. Thin coats at first, then heavier coats makes the finished
product look great. This is "Rustoleum wheel paint", and the primer is
"self etching primer". The paint is "graphite" color.
2006 Scion tC 5MT Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev With Exhaust View - 105K
2006 Scion tC Click the link below to compare a 2011 Scion tC!!!
This tC borrows the Camry's 2.4L 4 Cyl which makes 160 HP while paired to a
5 speed manual
Well it's obvious that this tC was a much better overall car especially
when it comes to the interior. Many elements within the interior were of
much higher quality, more tightly finished & better made. If theres
anything this car lacks what the 2011 has, it's the more refined engine,
the throatier Exhaust, the the
optional 6AT whereas the optional auto here is a 4AT. Forgot to check if
this steering wheel is damped so I need to check up on that.

Scion tC broken rear hatch handle panel repair tutorial
**UPDATE** Please be sure to read the comments section. As of late May,
early June 2013, Toyota is FINALLY taking care of this widespread problem
with extended warranty coverage. You should receive notification in the
mail. If you haven't, contact your local dealer IMMEDIATELY if you have an
older tC to schedule your repair BEFORE MARCH, 2014. I can't tell you how
many tC's I have seen on the road with the hatch handle cover held on my
tape or hanging loose. I'd like to think that this post, in part, helped
provide the pressure that Toyota needed to finally DO THE RIGHT THING for
the owners of these cars. Cheers.
Scion tC's are great little cars. Lots of fun to drive and very popular.
Unfortunately, they seem to suffer from a common defect. With enough use,
the rear hatch release panel will break off due to the flimsy plastic
anchor points beneath the panel that get brittle with age and weakened with
use. I've seen several tC's around my own town that have had the panels
broken. New, color matched replacement panels are available online as of
this posting for $108 plus shipping, but of course, you need to be able to
disassemble the handle switch, logo, etc. and re-install on the new panel,
which is not only throwing money down the tubes, but time consuming and a
I created this vid as a DIY tutorial if you want to repair it yourself for
around $5 and about a half hour to hour of your time. A little more care
with future use as described in the vid and the repair should hold
One thing I failed to mention in the vid is to be sure that the release
switch wire that goes to the handle grip is tucked out of the way before
refastening the panel. You don't want to pinch these wires for obvious
Update: In order for the simple repair shown in the video to work, you need
to retrain yourself on how to open the rear hatch. If you have a spoiler,
simply squeeze the handle release with one hand and use the other up under
the spoiler to lift the rear hatch. Otherwise, reach underneath the hatch
and lift the panel via the lower lip of the panel (as shown in the vid).
If you don't open the hatch this way as a habit after the repair, you will
probably want to reinforce the repair as shown in this vid with some
plastic wire ties, to firmly hold the repaired release panel snug against
the hatch panel. It's just extra insurance that your panel will STAY
fixed. Good luck!

How to Install Footwell Lighting that Fades with Dome Light in a 2006-current Honda Civic
Cost: Around $20-30 Difficulty: Intermediate Required Skills:
partial disassembly of a car's interior, and use of a soldering iron
Looking for the giant clock video?
UPDATE: According to various comments, this will work for the current
Honda Civic (or at least 2012 models) and will also work for the sedan.
Make sure you test the wires first, though, in case something is different.
If you're going to try it on these models, make sure you find out how to
remove the paneling--the process may have changed. Again, this video was
made specifically for the North American 8th generation Civic Coupe, which
covers model years 2006-2011. You will likely have to alter the procedure
in some way for all other models.
This is my first how-to video, so please bear that in mind when you watch
I've been wanting to install footwell lighting in my car (a 2009 Civic
Coupe) for a little while, and instead of just doing it, I decided that I
should record my progress and make a video of it for YouTube. Well, here
This modification wasn't nearly as difficult as it was time consuming. I
mention in the video that it takes 1-2 hours to complete, however this is
if you have access to all your materials at one time. I spread this out
over a few days and ended up spending much more time then I thought it
would take, just because of my start-and-stop schedule.
Basically, what makes these footwell lights unique is that they are tapped
from the dome light's power, so they will dim in and out with it. It took
me a very long time to find the information on the series of tubes that is
the Internet that showed where the dome light's wires were. I have to
thank the people at 8thcivic.com for contributing to a forum that
eventually gave me all the info I needed.
Some users have reported compatibility issues with the wire
taps/scotchlocks and the light strips. Ii is my recommendation to solder
wires directly to the strips, either using the solder pads or the wires
that may have come with your strips. However, for those who are
apprehensive of using a soldering iron (after all it can be dangerous), be
advised that you may have to use two sets of wire taps--one to make new
wires from the OEM wires, and another to tap your lights to these new
wires. Again, I always recommend soldering since it provides a better
connection, both electrically and mechanically. But if you want to avoid
soldering, just remember that you may need to find away around various
TO ADD A SEPARATE SET OF LIGHTS that stays on whenever the ignition is on,
use a fuse tap (which can be found at most auto parts stores) of the
correct size. If I remember correctly, this is for the ATM fuses. The
fuse tap does not need to be low-profile like the fuses are in the car.
Tap the radio fuse, or any other fuse that does not receive power when the
key is removed. Technically, the lights will be on when the key is in the
ACC or ON positions. The radio fuse was the only fuse that I found worked.
Use the smallest size fuse that came with the fuse tap for your new
lights. Then, wire the positive for these lights to the fuse tap and
ground them to something metal under the dashboard. I highlighted what I
used to make a ground at 12:38--I simply used a zip-tie and some bare wire,
looping the wire around the ring and securing it with the zip-tie.
DISCLAIMER: I will not be responsible for any damage that you cause to
your vehicle as a result of performing this modification, nor will I be
responsible for any voiding of warranties that may result from this
modification, and nor will I be responsible for any local laws that may be
broken by the use of footwell lighting. Since this footwell lighting only
operates when a door is opened (the dome light switch does not make the
footwell lights come on) or the car is being unlocked from the outside, I
doubt it would break any laws. However, if there are laws prohibiting
footwell lighting in your area, any fines or other consequences of breaking
the laws shall not be my responsibility.
YOU CAN NOW GET A 5 METER STRIP OF THESE LIGHTS FOR ABOUT $15 ON AMAZON!
Just search for LED Strip lights or Tape lights. You can also find them in
waterproof versions. If you want to do more projects with these lights,
look for them on Amazon. If you would like to add LED underglow, which I
explain how to do in another video, I would order a waterproof 5 meter
reel, and use a small portion for the footwell lights.
Besides the actual LEDs, most of the other materials required can be found
around the house. Remember to always remove the fuse to the circuit you'll
be working on, and be sure to check that the fuse you removed does indeed
protect your desired circuit.
Thanks for watching!
