This skid plate will allow air flow to enter smoothly through the undercarrage and exit the rear of the vehicle with less turbulence over the plastic service panel. Also ventilated to allow positive air pressure that tends to build in the engine compartment from the Mopar Hoods that contributes to hood chatter. The vents elivate the pressure and allows the air to escape the engine compartment safely.

All weather Mats 3dmaxpider Carbon Fiber pattern Kagu rubber for Dodge Challenger

 

So far I’m loving these 3D MAXpider Kagu Rubber mats, Laser cut for the Challenger the fit is near perfect. We’re talking about less than 1mm gap in 1 or 2 areas which I show in my video and it may even be related just being out of form from shipping. They feel nice and grippy under foot and look outstanding. These mats DO NOT SMELL which many mats I’ve purchased in the past carry a funky stench for a few weeks and the grip to the carpet below is like glue yet you can lift them out of the car easily for cleaning if required. I.e. they don’t slide around under foot, but when you lift straight up they come out smoothly (you are NOT peeling them out like Velcro)

Check out the FP2000 Interior cleaning video

Looks like Amazon finally has these up for sale with some proper year identification, in case they go out of stock I included the part numbers so you can find them elsewhere.

Dash Cam Fun – Road Rage – Hit and Run Deer and more…

 

 

This is the first in what may become a series… Interesting tings I’ve captured on Dash cam  over the last 2 years.  In this video you will see some road Rage, we hit a deer not once, but twice.  Flying Fur groomers spraying dirty dog water all over us.  My son laughing so hard he couldn’t breathe due to a motorcycle scaring him and much more.

 

Dash Cam – GRDIAN Defendr+ http://www.grdian.com Affiliate code “workplaydrive” $5.00 off.

Or from Amazon  

Another cam featured in this video is the Papago Go Safe 200  This is my oldest and most versatile cam.  I still love it to this day and now it’s super cheap.

 

Raw uncompressed Dash cam footage

You must (Right Click and Save As) Then play using your normal media player Quicktime, VLC Player or Windows Media Player recommended

The 2 videos below are worst case Daytime fopotage, same place and time driving into morning low hanging Sun, the only difference between the 2 is a $6 CPL (ploarizer) filter added to eliminate dash glare.

DAY DRIVING
http://www.workplaydrive.com/dashcam/GRDIAN_NoCPL.MP4 (right click and save)
This is 1920×1080 with the camera as is out of the box, quality is good, but with all dash cams the dashboad glare annoys me. I use the footage for cruising videos and other stuff so I prefer a clean video.

CPL FILTER ADDED
http://www.workplaydrive.com/dashcam/GRDIANCPL.MP4 (right click and save)
This is 1920 x 1080 with a stick on CPL (polarizer) I picked it up from eBay for $6.00 for another camera and it happen to stick on this one as well almost eliminating the glare

2560×1080 FOOTAGE
http://www.workplaydrive.com/dashcam/GRDIAN2560.MP4 (right click and save)
The GRDIAN also has a 2560 x 1080 mode which is really nice, here is the raw footage from a club run.

NIGHT DRIVING

1920 x 1080 Night footage (note, I have tinted headlights and these roads have almost no lighting I need to find some clips on well lit highways.

Quick Wheel Cleaning Basics – Show Prep Without Breaking the Bank

 

You asked for my wheel cleaning process…

I use a set of 12″ long 2 x 6 planks or double (side by side) 2 x 4s that I drive up on to get my tires off the ground so I can easily scrub all the way around. I’m not brand focused or sponsored I use all different products because it’s just what works best for me at the best cost.

It is very important you repeat the steps below every time you wash your car. If you don’t remove the old product before you apply new you wind up layering tire gel and brake dust resulting in a shiny brown tire.

 

1. Super light spray of water on the tires. Don’t to do an initial rinse yet. The best product I have used to date is Adam’s tire and rubber cleaner . Spray the tires liberally with the product then agitate and spread with a stiff bristle brush right away. Let it sit for 2 minutes then spray and scrub well.

 

2. Rinse and repeat step 1 then after your last scrub take a coarse microfiber rag I use Kirkland Yellow Microfiber specifically for this task as they don’t disintegrate when you scrub rubber. using the dry microfiber scrub the tires still wet with the Adams product good and hard. The microfiber really picks up the left over tire shine. don’t forget to do the bead between the tire and wheel this area really holds the tire shine. If your tires are really gooped up you can repeat step 2 one more time

3. Now I hose off the wheel and tires really well, then scrub my wheels and calipers by hand using Meguiar’s G17748 Wash and Wax. I avoid chemicals on the wheels, just my personal preference. I use Fresh Kirkland Yellow Microfiber (same as the ones I use to scrub tires just new ones) and also 3 piece Detail brushes to get in all the tight spaces. Rear wheel first, then front, after one side I empty the bucket, refill with Fresh suds and a new rag and do the other side. If your wheels are very dirty you should rinse and refill the suds with every wheel.

4. I blow dry the tires and wheels with my WORX mini blower it has enough power to dry the wheels and when I wash the car all the badges, grills and other crevices. it also has a flexible hose attachment so you can focus the air like when cleaning the engine bay.

At this point my tires are really clean and have a nice satin finish. for the most part I do not dress the tires I like the satin clean look  (fresh from a wash) but I do understand some people really enjoy a shiny tires, especially car show judges so when I need to dress my tires like this I use Meguiar’s G7516 Endurance Tire Gel and apply with a cheap tire gel applicator like these.  I used to buy nice ones with handles, but they get so nasty so the cheap ones are better and can fit into a small zip lock back for storage.

5. I use a pair of Nitrile gloves for this because it gets messy. I spread a good amount of tire gel on the applicator and rub it into the tire, add more as necessary to coat the tire well. Don’t worry about spreading it perfectly just make sure the entire tire is covered then let it sit for 10 –20 minutes. go back with a fresh Kirkland Yellow Microfiber and rub off the excess to prevent sling while driving.

if you are showing the car and want super gloss. When you get to the show wipe down the tire with a microfiber to clean off any road dirt, then re apply the gel evenly and don’t wipe off. Before you leave the show rub off the excess with a microfiber to prevent sling.
