This custom car article is not so much about car performance as it is about style. Does it really matter how fast your car can go if it doesn’t look good while going fast? Lets look into some methods in which you can customize your car to make your car look as hot as it goes.Customizing your car has a lot to do with custom car modification even if it has nothing to do with engine performance. Throughout this review, I will discuss ways in which you can personalize and customize your car to set it apart from the crowd.There are numerous customizations available on the market today consisting of both interior and exterior possibilities. Simply by tinting your windows, adding a customized body kit, nice wheels and some vehicle lighting, your vehicle will be unlike any other.There are a couple of things you should think about before you get started however. First, start off with a plan in mind. If you don’t have a plan from the start, your end result could be something quite embarrassing.By following a set plan, you end result would be a hideous surprise, rather a great accomplishment that will reflect something you can be proud of for years to come.Second, try to be original. This brings me to a huge part of vehicle customization: car led lighting. After you have installed car led lights, you car will look completely unique from the other vehicles out there.You can purchase many interior and exterior lighting kits through many different companies, however I have had the best luck with Varad. They offer a great product called Scanners. Scanners are visual theft deterrents, which are made up of extremely bright LEDs that deter break-ins before they occur. These Scanners are far more visible then the traditional dash mount alarm LED’s and they also will work on a vehicle without an alarm system.Another excellent product I have installed is the HID kit produced by Xenon. Xenon creates a superb HID High Intensity Discharged Lighting Conversion kit that provides many advantages when compared to other standard halogen lighting.These HID Lighting Conversion Kits contain 3 times the strength, which helps improve visibility and vision at greater distances. This whiter, brighter light is 10 times the longevity that cuts down in replacing bulbs. These HID lights are great for showing off your ride in shows and off road.The SL210 is Varad’s suspension lighting kit, which contains the brightest LED’s in the world. The SL210 comes with 4 LED emitters to be installed in each of the four wheel housings of your vehicle to create a look like no other. The strobe, brightness and breathing patterns can all be controlled by the digital controller. The kid comes in 5 bright colors including blue, white, red, orange and green.There are many car enthusiasts who take great pride in customizing their rides just for the ability to create a personalized look to fit who they are through personal style.Performance and style go hand in hand when it comes to modifying a vehicle that will stand out from the others. You can easily differentiate your ride from the rest just by installing simple car LEDs that will generate a styling in your ride unmatched by anyone else.
Here are simple instructions on replacing brake pads, discs and lines.Firstly, you will need a well-lit area with plenty of space. Gather your tools such as a jack, jack stands, lug wrench, wrench and socket set, screwdriver, and rags. Loosen the nuts on the wheel so they’ll be easier t remove later on. Then jack up the car and slide the stands under the frame of the car where they are stable and lower the jacks. Take off the nuts and remove the wheel. Inspect your brake line and if need be, repair or replace it.To repair a brake line, cut a part of the line at the divider fitting off and get another one. You will also need compression fittings. Run the new line and screw one end into the divider fitting; use the compression fittings to attach the two steel lines together on the other end. The new line will have flared ends to make this fit. Seal the line securely after tightening the nuts in the fittings.Moving onto the pads, you will need to unbolt the caliper and place it to the side. If there are brackets on the pads remove and set aside for later. The old brake pads should easily come off. If you need to replace the discs, now would be the ideal time. Remove the sets of screws and discard the old disc. Replace it with the new disc. Then look in the caliper for the piston that you will have to push to return to its original position. You are ready to put the new pads and brackets on. Re-bolt the caliper and test the brakes by tapping them a few times for pressure before putting tires and nuts on. You can now lower the vehicle.When starting any do it yourself project, you should think about the pros and cons. If you have the patience and the time, doing these and other projects can save you money and teach you more about your vehicle. But think about whether or not you want to invest the time and effort of going out and buying all the various tools you may need. The risk of purchasing the wrong materials may set you back. You should keep in mind that having these jobs done professionally can comfort you. Knowing that everything is properly done, the parts are correctly ordered, and the job is completed can lift a heavy burden off of your shoulders.
