Sunbrella – Keeping Your Car Shielded From The Sun

If you life in a hot climate, with the sun constantly beating down on you, you will realise that you need to do more to protect your vehicle. If you live, as I do, in Phoenix, you will know that the sun relentlessly shines, and while this is lovely and enjoyable for us, our cars don’t enjoy it as much. I found that the Sunbrella cover, from Covercraft, is the key to keeping the car in a healthy state. The acrylic fibres that the Sunbrella cover is made from are naturally UV resistant. The material is woven and hence prevents any ultra violet rays from coming and harming the car. At a lower degree, Sunbrella is water resistant too. This is fine for the odd occasion when we get a shower or two. Then the car won’t be left entirely to its own defences.

Sunbrella will automatically resist the growth of any rot or mildew. In most environments, the acrylic material will be able to resist this growth. It will also prevent the build up of dust on the car, so that it always looks clean, and shiny, not old and dusty. If not for the Sunbrella cover for car, the paint work and finish of the car would quickly become faded from the sun. The uv rays bleach the exterior, made it look much older than it really it. Sunbrella have a marvellous feature in that the cover itself will not get bleached and the colour will always stay fresh. Covercraft dye the acrylic fibres before they are even woven, so that the colour is embedded into the material, and not just on the surface. There is a choice of five colours that Sunbrella comes in; Pacific Blue, Sky Blue, Cadet Grey, Jet Black or Toast, all of which will make sure the car looks classy, even whilst covered. Having a Sunbrella cover will save you from constantly having to repaint the car to freshen up its exterior. It will also prevent the cabin of your vehicle from becoming overheated and too stuffy to drive, and will make sure that the internal system doesn’t get damaged from the heat. A big advantage of Sunbrella is that it is practical. It is compact enough to be folded away in the trunk, so that wherever you go you can take it with you. This way you’ll always be protected. Also the cover is easy to wash, so when it gets dirty you can freshen it up at a fraction of the cost of a car wash, which is what you would have needed, had you not had Sunbrella.

Car Seat Harness Safety Tips

The harness is an intricate part of your children’s car seats and keeps your child secured to the seat. There are few different commonly used harness systems that you should be aware of: The three-point harness has straps that cross over the shoulders and fasten onto a buckle at the bottom of the seat. The five-point harness has five straps, of which two are at the shoulders, two are at the hips, and one is at the crotch area. The overhead shield has a padded shield that swings down around the child. The T-shield is a padded t-shaped or triangular shield attached to should straps. It is attached to the front of the seat. The five point harness is the most preferred by many safety experts. The lap part of the harness fits over the child’s hip bones. With this harness it can be adjusted to fit snugly on small infants and bigger kids. Watch out, however, because there is a tendency for the straps to get twisted. Remember to check the straps and straighten them out for the best protection. The T-Shield straps are attached to a flat pad. The shield actually reduces the event of twisting straps, and it can be buckled with one hand for quickness and ease.  There are some harnesses that have straps that adjust automatically. Positioning the harness is very important. The straps can be wiped with warm water and mild soap using a sponge or cloth. A good trick that I’ve learned is to remove the car seat cover, take it to a local self-car wash, and use the high pressure hose to clean it quickly! Once you’ve washed your car seat, it’s best to air dry it – never put it in the washer. Do not use bleaches or soak them in oher chemicals, and do not iron or press them. If you still can’t seem to get your cars seats harnesses clean then buy some replacement straps. It is better to spend the extra money then to take chances with chemicals that could be close to your baby’s mouth or skin. Car seats are an integral part of transporting your infant or toddler. To ensure that you’re buying the best one, become an informed consumer and learn all that you can before you buy.

Removing a Car Bumper

Automobile manufacturers design and build vehicles in an efficiently way. While some vehicles cost more according to the craftsmanship included by the manufacturer but every model has a specific instruction for removal and replacement of major parts which includes body parts. Follow the simple directions. Tools Needed – Screwdriver Ratchet Sockets Pliers Assistant Directions Step 1: First of all, the vehicle must be parked in a properly lit working area. Open and raise the car’s bonnet and inspect the plastic protective coverings on top of the radiator. For accessing the front bumper, the top protective plastic shield covering the bumper’s clips and screws at the vehicle’s front have to be removed. Put aside the plastic shield and screws for reinstalling later when the bumper is removed. Step 2: Start working from the middle of the bumper and move to the two end fasteners.

Use a socket or a screwdriver to loosen and remove the screws all over the bumper from top center to the bottom center. There are roughly 4 clips and 12 screws that hold the bumper in place. By removing the bolts and screws, the bumper will be pretty easily removed when finished. When the bumper is fastened well under the wheel but the screw is covered, then the overlapping wheel well cover would have to be removed and then remove the screw. Step 3: The next step is to release the bumper body panels from the rest of the front fender’s body panels and around the head lights. Much of the body parts fit together or overlap for positioning the pieces together. The panel edges of the bumper have to be pulled softly from under and behind the other body parts. The only thing that is holding the bumper now are the factory manufactured body clips. Step 4: Take help from an assistant who is supposed to hold one side of the bumper while you work on the other. Gravity or clipping from the side holds the clips together in place. The clips that are held together with gravity call be pulled for separating. For taking off the clips that have tabs pushed in from the side, pull the bumper away from the clip. Wiring has to be reinstalled on the replacement bumper for maintaining all of the safety equipment required for vehicle registration. Step 5: When all the clips and screws have been released, pull the bumper away from the car. In case, one section of the bumper does not come apart, then it means that the two body panels are still locked or it is possible that one of

Tips & Precautions – As the task is to separate the bumper from the other body panels, take a cloth and insert it in between panels for preventing scratches from the loosened bumper. – The front bumper clips that attach to the stock bumper or replacement body kit should not be removed or loosened.
