  1. Hi guys. Our home handyman adventures are sorta scattered all round the place in different threads. Maybe can lump here under something like makan thread. Don't think this belongs to plumber thread. So I start this off. My 555 ss water container. The lid handle fell off. Would an epoxy work? Any recommended brands? Funny thing is if it's epoxyed on originally. How come got that 3 contact points?
  2. Hi bros,,, Anyone purchased for custom mixed spray can paint (to match your car colour code) Locally? a friend of mine from US told me that it is commonly done and widely available there, but in SG totally no news.

Want to touch up & spray up some parts of my car, but touchup paints not doing too well cuz the area is about 3"x3" Thanks in advance !!!!
  3. Had been meaning to do a short write up to share my experience when I did a DIY installation/replacement of my old 2-channel dashcam (front and rear) with a new 2-channel dashcam, and also to rant about the shitty worksmanship that I got from the "professional" workshop that did my previous dashcam installation. I had read up quite a bit on DIY installation of dashcam before deciding to take the plunge, and boy did I learn a lot from it! Dismantling the Old Dashcam So I started from the rear camera, and start ed pulling the wires out from the head liner. My fuse box is on the le
  4. Bought some tyre shine products a while back and finally got my lazy bones to work and washed the car myself. Since I was washing, decided to do some experiment for the products i bought. Below are the pics of each of the products used on each tyre. All tyres are given 2 coats of the products and see which lasts longer and maintain its shine. Feel free to comment on the experiment so that I can do better in future experiments. The photos doesnt do justice to the shine. It actually is shiny but i cannot seem to take a photo to bring out the shine. I'll report the daily shine status of ea
  5. Coming back home last night the car tyre monitoring system indicated a leak in front R tyre. Checked it out upon reaching home and indeed discovered a nail. 1. Extracted the nail out with an orange pliers. 2. Plug in a round file to smoothen and enlarge the hole. 3. Standby the sticky worm inserted into the needle eyes. 4. Insert into the hole with some force, with about 3/4 way in and pulled it out quickly. 5. Spray some water or bubbled one to check for leak. I pumped up the tyre a bit with a portable inflatable pump and drove to a petrol kiosk to fully inflate the tyres and do a r

  7. Anyone DIY? Brought a thrttle body cleaner at Mr DIY, loosen the air duct, ask my kid to step on the accelrator when I on the igition swtich without starting the car. Open the e throttle, use a rag, spray the cleaner and clean it... Less than 10 mins job, spend less than $5. Remove battery terminal and reset the ECU, and start cleaning the battery terminals using steel brushes. Apply copper grease on the terminal and connect it back.

  8. I recently DIY installed a set of spacers for my car. Thought I share with you guys the process. Hopefully this can help those of you keen to install wheel spacers yourself. Why I did not choose to pay a small amount of money and save myself the hassle of the DIY? Well, after researching on the proper installation of spacers, there are a few reasons why I think DIY will be better compared to workshop installation: 1) Proper application of anti-seize copper grease to the right surface and not to accidentally get these into thread grooves. 2) Tighteni
  9. My kitchen drawer is no more soft closing now, and I think the slide mechanism spoils. Usually the slide is installed at the side of the drawer, but mine is under it. Anyone know where can I find the replacement? I tried to put the entire drawer out to inspect, but it can't be removed. Please share and guide if you have DIY before. Thank you.

  13. Have some old (5 years old) sticky residue from double sided tape on my front door (zzz leftover from 5 years ago when i used double sided tape for CNY decorations). I tried to remove it back then but then procrastinated cos i was busy then. Then haha now it's 5 years on. Scrapping it doesn't work cos it's just a very thin residue that u can see and hardly feel. It's the usual laminated type of door. Anyway to remove it without damaging the laminate? Other than Rubbing alcohol, any other suggestions?

  16. Here is a very successful DIY project - leather wrap ( or Alcantera ) on steering wheel. The wrap is customised for each specific model of steering wheel, and they provide all necessary items required for the DIY, which is a rather nice feature . There shall be no mention of what seller since this post is to show you how easy to DIY your steering wrap. If you are good at hands-on, do consider this option instead of paying hundreds to shops instead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xU_IvxSN2A

  23. Due to an injury when I step on a nail in the old past, now the bone on one side of my heel hurts badly when I walk. I am thinking about creating my custom insole and embed a wood support around the injured bone. I experimented with some wood cut-out and it worked. I can make wood part but I can't find good materials which I can create main part of the insole and a normal matching part for opposite foot. Assume I want to make custom insoles, what kind of materials I can find and where? I think folks in a car forum would have more knowledge in hardware and do-it-yourself ideas.

  25. i have some outdoor bamboo blinds painted in black and white which started peeling quite badly. Repainting them would temporarily solve the problem since it would be recurring in another year after exposure to the elements. Hence, seeking from the DIY gurus, if locally we could get something like below? or if they works in the first place (no paint crack/ peel with long exposure to sun). Or some other recommendations? many thanks in advance. https://www.amazon.com/Rubberseal-Liquid-Waterproofing-Protective-Coating/dp/B00F0U0IRA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1488778172&sr=8-2&
