I was walking around downtown Seattle during my lunch and walked by a furniture store when these light bulb sculptures caught my eye. After researching them online. I found out they are used/old “industrial factory bulbs”. When mounted on a piece of wood, they look really cool.
Please support the artists that originally thought of and made them, but if you want to do a variation of your own — this is an easy project to learn woodworking and creating a piece of art.

Happy Amazon Prime Day! If you have been looking for a “safer” version of the oh so popular “hover boards” then you’ll love the Segway miniPRO at this steep discounted price of $699 from $999. Basically, it’s a few hundred more than the ones that catch on fire.
This little personal transporter connects to a mobile app via Bluetooth and allows remote control operation, anti-theft alarm, speed control, customizable lights, vehicle diagnostics, and firmware updates! It’s also UL Certified so it meets the fire and electrical safety set by world-renown global safety science company Underwriters Laboratories. It can also carry up to 220 lbs and it’s dual motor engine delivers 1600 watts of power to safely reach top speeds of 10 MPH and distances of 14 miles on a full charge.

My least favorite part about washing/detailing my car is cleaning the brake dust off the wheels. Mostly because the cleaners I’ve used in the past either seemed to emit extremely toxic fumes or left behind fine dust that required additional scrubbing. That’s why I like the Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner. First, this stuff is “Made in Germany” so it must be great, right? Second, it turns red when it’s working — visual indication! Third, it just works — no fuss, no muss! Spray onto dry, cool wheels, wait a minute or two, then rinse off.
I take my car to our local self-service Brown Bear Car Wash and use the pressure washer setting to rinse the spray off. Using this process I don’t have to do any additional scrubbing — it works like magic! I then use a microfiber cloth to dry/clean the rim to a factory new finish.
If you guys adopt my method of wheel cleaning, you’ll be able to spend more time cleaning the rest of your car than spending wasted time on your rims.

I like lighter colored interiors in cars and I cannot lie — but the issue is they’re always not that practical, especially if you wear denim jeans daily. Here’s a quick tip I learned for dealing with light colored interior so if you start noticing your leather car seats have a blue tinge to them (or they’re just dirty) you’ll know what to do. Now, if you are here because you searched on “how to get denim jean rub stains off of light car leather interior”, you’re also in luck! I have the solution and it works like magic.
You need the two items listed below and some elbow grease. It’s literally a wipe on, wipe off solution. I do it at the first sign the seats are getting dirty and also when I wash the car. The Chamberlain’s leather care liniment not only cleans the leather but treats it so it stays supple and less likely to crack over time.

I’ve never curbed a wheel before! Well, until this time — my first time. I was actually letting my wheels get dirty because I’m going to do a review of a wheel cleaner for a next video (so that’s why my wheels are so dirty!). Here’s what happened — I was parking at an end spot (to avoid any door dings) and as I was pulling into the space, I maneuvered a bit to close to the curb and nicked my rim. It was one of those really short curbs that was the perfect height as where my rim meets tire. Just felt like a slight bump… bummer!
Result, I got a minor curb rash. Because the wheel is “diamond turned” I knew I could never make it 100%. I just wanted it to be smooth so the brake dust doesn’t fill in the dings and make it less noticeable. In this video, I attempted to fix it the best I could. This one will be swapped with the spare tire rim but let me know what you think!
!!Spoiler Alert!! — while the repair made it less noticeable — I am going to replace the wheel……

As I’m trying to building up my YouTube Channel (please subscribe!) — I’ve decided to revisit my most popular posts here at Mavromatic. The plan is to create videos of these posts so people can watch instead of just read. I find that video often times makes the process of understanding complex things a little easier.
The post I’ve chosen to revisit and turn into a video this week is actually two separate posts which I’ve combined — HOW TO: Wire An Ethernet And Phone Jack Using A Single Cat5e Cable and HOW TO: Using a Cat5e Jack (RJ-45) for use with a Telephone Connector (RJ-11). They are still relevant as standalone posts, but I hope this video helps and allows you to “Do-It-Yourself”.
Feel free to comment below or on my YouTube channel and I will answer your questions.
Tools used in this video:
– Wiha 32092 Slotted And Phillips Insulated Screwdriver Set, 1000 Volt, 6 Piece

My TED 5000 (more about the product here and here) whole house power monitor by The Energy Detective that I’ve been using for years stopped working properly. The date/time would no longer keep after a power outage causing the logging of the data to get all messed up. I thought I’d try to repair it — this is my first on camera repair video.
Come along with me and see if I am successful with my repair……

Land Rover — at least in the North American market — has gotten a bad reputation for it’s fuel economy over the years. I’ve owned a Land Rover since 1997 (before they were status symbol vehicles) and I would even call myself a Land Rover enthusiast. So when Land Rover announced they were bringing a Turbo Diesel V6 engine to North America I placed my order. I’m now a proud owner of a 2016 Range Rover TD6 — it’s the engine we should have had back in my 1998 Discovery!
After a little over 1700 miles on clock, my best “journey” is 32.8MPG. Not bad for a truck that has gotten 12-14MPG in the past. Average with City driving is about 24.5/25MPG which is inline with what Land Rover/EPA states the average MPG would be. I’m impressed — great job LR!
Hope this video can change peoples perspective that a capable 4×4 like the Range Rover is now on it’s way to being more eco-friendly and fuel efficient than years past models.…
