Nationwide Car Insurance

Nationwide Nationwide Car Insurance

A reliable source for car insurance would have to be Nationwide where you are able to get an extensive list of benefits, including up to 75% no claim discount, online discounts for the new policies, 24-hour claim service, call center, guaranteed courtesy car and cover for up to 180 days when travelling in EU countries. They offer three different types of coverage: comprehensive, third party fire & theft and third party only. We will talk about only the first type of policy which offers the most coverage.

The Nationwide comprehensive car insurance offers unlimited third party injury liability up to 20,000,000 pounds for damage to third party property. Needless to say, it provides coverage for accidental damage to your car and also offers cover for up to 180 days when you are travelling to EU countries. You also benefit from a temporary replacement car if your vehicle is damaged, written off or stolen with the condition that your claim is handled by one of the selected repairers.

This type of Nationwide car insurance will cover the loss or damage to your car cause from fire and/or theft, and you’ll also get up to 10,000 pounds personal accident benefits for you and your partner, along with up to 200 pounds for personal belongings in the vehicle. In addition, this comprehensive insurance offers unlimited coverage for in-car entertainment, phone and sat-nav systems that come as standard with the car. The cover is up to 500 pounds for non-standard equipment. You also get up to 500 pounds physical assault benefits and a new car replacement if your car is less than a year old.

The comprehensive policy also covers the breakage of the windscreen and window glass without having to lose the no claim discount if you are willing to pay 75 pounds per claim unless the window glass or windscreen is repaired and not replaced.

On top of this comprehensive Nationwide car insurance policy you also have the possibility to benefit from the guaranteed no claims discount, motor legal expenses cover up to 10,000 pounds, personal accident benefits increased to a 100,000 pounds limit, along with road rescue cover.

Before you apply online, you should be able to prepare the following information: make, model, MFRD of car; registration number; details regarding the vehicle’s owner and registered keeper; driving license and info about driving history; car insurance history (including here any no claim discounts); details of any losses, claims or incidents in the last five years; additional drivers; credit/debit card for payments.

You will get the vehicle insurance policy documents within 5-7 business days. If you haven’t got the papers after 10 business days, you should give them a call at 0845 640 5920 and they will send duplicate copies.

You can cancel the Nationwide car insurance up to 14 days after you receive the documents. You will get a full refund minus a charge for the cover you have had and a cancellation charge for establishing the car policy. After the first 14 days, if you haven’t made a claim, they will refund you with any money that you’ve paid, except for a cancellation charge. Remember that you will not be able to get a refund if you have made a claim. If the amount of money due to the company when you cancel the policy is higher in comparison to what you have paid, you’ll be asked to pay for the difference. This includes paying the rest of the premium due for the policy if you have chosen monthly payments and you’ve made a claim.

eBay Stock Car Racing Finds

Complete Tony Stewart collection 500+ cars plus much more definitely 1 of a kind:

No 1

Tony Stewart might have millions of dollars, a mansion and three Sprint Cup titles, but he doesn’t have 579 miniature versions of the cars he used to make those millions, buy that mansion or earn those championships.

But now you can.

“This collection is definitely one of a kind and there will never be another one like it,” as the seller declares, and I couldn’t agree more.

And along with the chance to own this precious Tony Stewart diecast collection, you’re guaranteed a place among the pantheon of elite stock car fans for the buy-in price of $70,000, the asking price to take these 579 little beauties home with you.

Smokin’ Joe’s CAMEL Car. NASCAR WINSTON CUP. ROAD RACE CAR:

No 2

Hmmn. Decisions…decisions.

Do I pay $70K for 579 1:18th to 1:43rd scale NASCAR toys, or 1/3rd the price to own a 1:1 edition of the real thing? Even better, do I also spend my 401K to have Noah to build an ark-sized display case for my Tony Stewart models?

I think I’d rather spend an hour clearing space in the garage and drive this 800 hp monster up the driveway into its new home.

Diecast Lot Redline Hotwheel Nascar Johnny Lightning Action Racing Champion Ertl:

No 3

I can’t wait to pitch my new “Hoarders: Stock Car Merchandise” show to the networks.

This lot is a bargain at $15,900, and seriously, what’s the better investment? Using that money to send your kid to college or becoming the coolest guy in the neighborhood with this infestation of goodies? Is there any question?

Order some pizzas, invite your buddies over, get on your hands and knees to frolic on the carpet with model cars and then play fancy-dress-up-time by taking turns trying on your closet full of stock car jackets. Sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday with the fellas if you ask me.

(And if $15,900 worth of stock car collectibles isn’t enough for you, try searching under “NASCAR Diecast Collection” and see what comes back. The one with a $29,000 “Buy It Now” option is a personal favorite.

Chevrolet: Corvair Marauder GT Bounty Hunter Dune Buggy, Dale Earnhardt, Hot Rod:

No 4

What in the world did The Intimidator do to deserve this $8500 vehicular tribute?

“If you’ve gone No. 1 and No. 2, be sure to buy this tie-dyed dune buggy with an inexplicable Dale Sr. motif so you can tell your friends you’ve gone No. 3.”

1200 LOT!!! 2006 Ken Schrader #21 Little Debbie / Ford Fusion NASCAR die-cast:

I’ve always been fond of Ken Schrader. Likeable guy. Talented, versatile driver. Granted, I’ve never felt compelled to buy a model of one of his cars, but if I did, it’s nice to know I can have 1200 OF A SINGLE VEHICLE.

According to the seller, who’s asking $4900 for the 100 boxes of 2006 No. 21 Little Debbie-mobiles, “from my research they are worth anywhere from 20 to 50 dollars a piece. I’m looking to sell all 1200.”

Doing the math, I could generate between $24K and $60K for a low, low investment price of $4900…almost sounds too good to be true…

Rare Dale Earnhardt Sr. NASCAR No.3 Goodwrench Chevy Car Cover – Est. $20K:

No 6

Estimated to be worth $20,000 by its sellers, this unverified, undocumented piece of Dale Sr. cloth memorabilia can be had for only $6900. (If you were wondering, no, you don’t get the car AND the cover…just the cover.)

And place your bid quickly because once Earnhardt’s loyal fans notice this Chevy Monte Carlo car cover was draped over a (Ford-owned) Lincoln Mercury to take the photo, the whole thing could go up in flames.

Kia’s Justice League Cars – 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show

Batman-inspired Kia Optima

Kia Motors America and DC Entertainment will show off two of their Justice League-inspired machines this week at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show – the Batman-inspired Optima, previously unveiled in October at the Time Warner Center in New York City, and the Aquaman-inspired Rio 5-door, previously revealed at this year’s SEMA show.

The two vehicles were built by RIDES magazine and West Coast Customs, respectively, both vehicles feature custom artwork by legendary comic book artist and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee.

The Batman-inspired Kia Optima has a matte and piano-black paint scheme, a dramatically lowered coilover suspension and ground effects kit, huge Ksport performance brakes for extreme stopping power, custom-designed 20-inch black wheels with one-of-a-kind Batman-logo center caps and a performance exhaust system.

Aqua Man-inspired Kia Rio

Kia claims that 85 percent of the Kia Rio’s materials are recyclable at the end of its lifespan, making it a natural automotive alter-ego for Aquaman, symbolizing his role as protector of the environment, both land and sea. The Rio 5-door received the West Coast Customs treatment with special gold, green and orange exterior paint and custom metal fins attached to the body. Other visual elements also include Oracle LED wheel rings and body lighting across the exterior and 20-inch color-matched Asanti wheels with Continental tires. The seats have been reupholstered with green leather featuring yellow and gold accents.

Kia says its partnership with DC Entertainment was conceived to benefit “We Can Be Heroes”, a giving campaign dedicated to helping fight hunger in the Horn of Africa and inspired by the heroism of the iconic Justice League characters. It says the campaign encourages everyday people to join the fight by getting involved and donating to bring help and hope to the people most affected by the hunger crisis.

In all a total of seven Kia vehicles inspired by the individual characters of the Justice League will be built. And if you’d like to own one you might get a chance as a fully-drivable, eighth custom Kia Sorento that encompasses all seven super heroes will be the final vehicle. It will be auctioned off to raise funds for the “We Can Be Heroes” cause. So far, five vehicles have been shown and three more are to be unveiled over the next several months.

How To Detect A Bent Frame When Buying A Used Car

When buying a used car we have to take into consideration some of the risks that come with it. Of course, we choose a pre-owned vehicle to save money and if we know what car to choose, we’ll end up with a great vehicle for which we’ve paid half the price of a new one. One of the most significant problems with used cars concerns structural defects (like a bent frame) resulted after the vehicle was involved in a major accident. This article will tell you how to detect a bent frame when buying a used car.

The frame (chassis) is the structure that was designed to hold the entire car together. You need to know that many of the bigger mechanical components, like the suspension or the engine, are bolted or bonded to it. As a consequence, these major components may not fit as they should and can cause the misalignment of the wheels which can be very dangerous. The problem is caused usually by a major accident or by overloading the car. Here’s how you can find out if there are any problems with the frame of a car:

First of all, you’ll have to look out for potential gaps between the bonnet, trunk or doors. All major car manufacturers spend a lot of money for making sure that their vehicles are properly built, with sleek body lines. For this reason, when the car’s structural supports are not aligned as they should be, you may find this out by searching for uneven gaps between certain of the body panels, like hood, doors and trunk. Keep in mind that not in all cases a twisted frame is the cause of these gaps.

You also might want to take a closer look at the undercarriage and if there are any signs of unusual dimples in the frame or if you notice that two halves of the car might have been welded back together, the vehicle’s alignment might be off.

It may be almost impossible to get the car’s wheel aligned properly if the chassis has been bent and you will not be able to align them correctly until the chassis is straightened. Most of you know that if the car’s wheels are not aligned properly, you’ll have to change the tires more often due to the excessive and uneven wear. We highly recommend that you take the car to an alignment center and if there is something wrong, they’ll definitely tell you what needs to be fixed.

Chassis Faro Arm How To Detect A Bent Frame When Buying A Used Car

There is another way how to detect a bent frame when buying a used car, by looking at it from behind while it is driving on the road. Each of the vehicle’s wheels should track the one in front of it perfectly. In other words, the right rear wheel must appear to be in perfect alignment with the right front wheel; the same thing goes for the left wheels. If the frame of the car is bent, the back of the vehicle will most likely appear to steer to the right or left, although the front wheels are right. In many of the cases, this misalignment of the wheels might be caused by a broken center bolt on one of the leaf springs.

Needless to say, it can be very expensive to fix a bent frame. I for one would never buy a car that at one time during its life had this kind of issues, although it has been repaired, but in the end this decision is up to you.

Club Car Parts

Repairing a golf club car doesn’t necessarily have to be a difficult task because in just about all cases you will need the suitable club car parts to fix the problem. Similar to most other types of vehicles, a golf club car can be repaired with the suitable parts that are compatible for the make and model of the golf club.

Club Car Parts

Here are some examples of club car parts and accessories:

Voltage converters – this will allow you to add a considerable number of electrical devices to your golf car. You should know that this is different than a voltage reducer as it can protect the batteries more efficiently by converting the battery power of the entire pack to 12 volts. The vast majority of the voltage converters work with 36- or 48-volt batteries, but before making a purchase you should double check to see if the voltage converter that you want to acquire will work with the batteries that your golf car uses. The price range for such a product is usually between $100 and $200.

Combo kits – these club car parts can include the lift kit which is suitable for those of you who want their golf car to stay a little higher off the ground. This kit also comes with wheels and tires, along with the necessary tools for installing the wheels and tires. Such a kit can cost anywhere between $400 and $1,000.

Club Car Club Car Parts

Street legal kits – there is a considerable number of golfers that want to drive their golf carts on the streets. This is where the street legal kits kick in, allowing the owner of a golf cart to legally drive it on public roads. Such a kit consists of headlights, taillights, horns, mirrors and turn signals, along with other similar components. The price tag for such a kit varies between $50 and $150.

Porsche Adds American Connor de Phillippi To Factory Team Roster

Porsche Adds American Connor de Phillippi To Factory Team Roster

First it was California’s Patrick Long, plucked from a promising career in open-wheel racing to serve as a racing driver for the Porsche factory. With multiple drivers’ and manufacturers’ titles for the German marque now on his resume, Long has become one of the brand’s biggest success stories.

And when it came time to bolster the ranks of Porsche’s junior team, a similar California+open-wheel philosophy has been employed once again. Why mess with a successful formula, after all?

Enter 19-year-old Connor de Phillippi, already a veteran of Mazda’s Road To Indy open-wheel program, who was just named as the second American to represent the legendary marque on the world stage.

De Phillippi, along with Spain’s Alex Riberas Bou, won factory seats in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland championship for 2013 after an intensive program that evaluated numerous young drivers in a variety of on- and off-track disciplines.

Porsche Adds American Connor de Phillippi To Factory Team Roster

For San Clemente native de Phillippi, who was expected to graduate to the Firestone Indy Lights Series next year, taking this 180-degree career turn towards sports cars wasn’t necessarily part of his long-term plan, but faced with the rare opportunity to race as part of the Porsche Junior Team in Europe, it was an obvious choice to make.

It could also see him in one-off guest drives in North America and other international markets.

“It’s unbelievable to now be a part of this program,” he said. “It’s a huge step for me to now race in Europe. But as everyone knows, there is no better school in GT racing than to pit yourself against the top specialists in the Carrera Cup Deutschland. Porsche works driver Patrick Long also took this route. He is one of my biggest role models. I hope to be his teammate one day.”

Porscheracing boss Hartmut Kristen is confident the marque has chosen the best twocandidates to groom into professional racers.

“The decision was a very exciting one,” he said. “The finalists were all on an impressive level. In order to select the two candidates with the greatest potential, our engineers carefully examined every single lap. Both Alex Riberas Bou and Connor de Phillippi have the talent necessary to be successful in the sports car scene and to follow in the footsteps of (2012 Porsche Junior Team drivers) Klaus Bachler and Michael Christensen. Our current Porsche works drivers have shown that the Carrera Cup is an excellent platform for a professional international career.”

Chevrolet RS

The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro RS was released recently by Chevrolet and it is absolutely stunning. The car has a lean and muscular look with an aggressive front end because of the optional front grille. The rear of the car catches the eye with its round tail light and the big aggressive exhausts. To complete the exterior design, the manufacturer used for this Chevrolet RS 19 inch rims which have a thick five spoke pattern. These rims feature an alloy finish having a sporty and aggressive look and providing great handling and style.

Inside, the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro RS is spacious and functional. The seats are amazing, covered in leather while the steering wheel is big having a retro look. When it comes to the dashboard, this is plain and tries to match the style of the classic Camaro. A disadvantage of the dashboard is that some of the gauges are placed under the HVAC and the stereo controls. Because of that, if you are trying to look at them you will have to take your eyes off the road and that has a dangerous potential. But you must keep in mind that the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro RS is a performance car, so it isn’t about luxury and fancy dash navigation systems. But, Chevrolet should have given more attention to the dashboard’s design.

The four passenger cabin is tastefully designed featuring modern touches. The buyer has the opportunity to choose the ambient light package which includes advanced LED light pipe technology which offers a special glow to the interior. The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro RS is also equipped with cruise control, rear deffoger, rear park assistant and USB port, air conditioning, remote start and a personal device interface for iPod. When it comes to the entertainment system you have everything you need including a single-CD radio with six speakers, XM Satellite radio and power door locks.

Under the hood, this Chevrolet RS hides a powerful engine. The car is equipped with a 3.6 liters V6 direct injection engine producing 312 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. The 2011 Camaro RS is available as an SS version as well, equipped with a 6.2 liters V8 engine which produces more than 400 horsepower. If you want to take this car for a ride, you should know that the 2011 Camaro goes from zero to 60 mph in only 6.1 seconds. This amazing Chevrolet RS also benefits from some of the latest technological advances including antilock brakes, traction and stability control, variable valve timing and an independent rear suspension. You can say that this 2011 Camaro is the modern version of the classic Chevy Camaro. The car is available with the Hydramatic 6T70 six speed automatic transmission that helps the driver shift easily during the ride and offers the opportunity to choose different gears.

Chevrolet Rs opt Chevrolet RS

2011 Chevrolet Camaro RS

When it comes to the fuel economy, this Chevrolet’s RS consumption was estimated by EPA to be around 17 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on highway. The safety measures are also respected by the Chevrolet Camaro RS. The standard package includes antilock disc brakes, front-seat side airbags, stability control, full-length side curtain airbags and the OnStar system.

If you love the American muscle cars and you are looking for a powerful engine, the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro RS is the perfect choice for you. If you are interested in buying this car it will cost you $40,000. If you desire the entire optional package which includes the sunroof, the body kits, the V8 engine and something extra, the price goes up. Nonetheless, the performance is worth spending every penny.

Infiniti Red Bull F1 Racing for 2013

Infiniti Red Bull F1 Racing for 2013

Everyone, apart perhaps from die-hard Ferrari fans and Spaniards, had to be truly impressed by the Red Bull Racing team’s successes in the 2012 F1 season. The relatively new British-based F1 team (it took over the Jaguar team at the end of 2004) captured its third straight World Manufacturer’s Championship last week at the US Grand Prix in Austin. Then yesterday in Brazil, during one of the most nail-biting F1 races in a long time, Sebastian Vettel grabbed his third straight World Driver’s Championship. He is the youngest driver ever to achieve this and joins Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher as one of only three drivers to achieve this milestone.

Just before yesterday’s race, Infiniti announced it has expanded its partnership with the team for another four years. What’s more it has obviously upped the dollar amount, as the team will be known as Infiniti Red Bull Racing from 2013 on.

When making the announcement, Johan de Nysschen, the former president of Audi USA and now president of Infiniti, said: “While our first 24-months have been very beneficial to both parties, our new deeper relationship will bring increased advantages to Infiniti and Red Bull Racing. As title sponsor, Infiniti Red Bull Racing will help us garner even more worldwide exposure for our brand, products and technology.”

Red Bull Racing’s Team Principal Christian Horner added: “Red Bull Racing and Infiniti have been working on a number of initiatives since the start of our relationship in 2011. During that time, Infiniti has demonstrated significant technical prowess and I’ve been impressed by the depth of the wider engineering capabilities of the Nissan Motor Company. In terms of marketing, Infiniti has leveraged their involvement with Red Bull Racing and Formula One extremely effectively to become much better known in a short space of time. These two attributes make Infiniti the ideal title and technical partner for Red Bull Racing.”

Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer commented: “Formula One presents immense design and engineering challenges on a daily basis. Having a committed technical partner like Infiniti gives us a great platform for working together on technical projects, such as the Energy Recovery Systems for the 2014 season.”

A few years ago Toyota and Honda withdrew from F1 racing, as it proved too expensive to go it alone. As of now the Red Bull car is powered by a Renault engine but we can only imagine that the name on the engine might change to Infiniti before long, especially if Nissan engineers have any major input.

From a purely financial point of view it makes tremendous sense for Infiniti to place its name on a successful team rather than try and build one from scratch. Such is the popularity of Formula One worldwide this alliance will undoubtedly help Infiniti establish itself as a key luxury brand as it expands its presence globally.

eBay Racing Finds From Thanksgiving

eBay Racing Finds From Thanksgiving

In what’s become a ritual in the Pruett household on Thanksgiving, especially during those hours while the food is cooking, paying a visit to eBay to kill time and peruse some of the silly automotive- and racing-themed items up for bid is guaranteed to bring a few laughs.

Using the search criteria of “IndyCar” and sorted with the “Prices: Highest First” option, more than 10,000 items appeared. The first that caught my eye was:

Chevrolet IRL Indy car engine Gen 3: For a cool $15,000, you can take home a 2003-2011 era IndyCar Series engine. With upwards of 700 hp at just over 10,000 rpms on tap, the 3.5-liter mill is actually a bargain if you’re in need of a somewhat light racing engine with a low center of gravity. You’ll need to buy the electronics and headers separately, but if you’ve always wanted to build the ultimate Track Day or Time Attack car, the cost-to-performance ratio with this Bowtie powerplant is hard to beat.

INDY 500 Franchitti Car Original Art PAINTING DAN BYL Investment Collector XXL

Indy 500 Franchitti Car Original Art Painting Dan Byl Investment Collector XXL: I realize that art is hard to judge, but if this is worth the $4000 the artist is asking for, I’m quitting this writing thing, ordering art supplies and joining this new ‘paint while blindfolded’ movement that’s apparently going on.

Red IndyCar Game Chair with Stool

Red IndyCar Game Chair with Stool: Offered by seller “MarciaTreasures” for $2150, the buying instructions come with a mandate that bidder must either be single or looking for the perfect piece of racing-inspired furniture to spark a divorce.

1980 to 1981 Pontiac Indy or Nascar Pace Car Turbo Mags

1980 to 1981 Pontiac Indy or Nascar Pace Car Turbo Mag: Are you a CEO with gobs of money to burn and an unbridled love for the movie ‘Smokey and the Bandit’? Here’s the perfect opportunity to pay a ridiculous sum – $1979.98 – to make whatever you drive look like the Bandit’s Pontiac Firebird. Two grand for four Pontiac wheels? How is that not eBay’s equivalent of a Black Friday door buster?

Original Helmet Used by Patrick Lemarié 2003 IndyCar Test Pollock Kalkhoven Racing

Original Helmet Used by Patrick Lemarié 2003 IndyCar Test Pollock Kalkhoven Racing: If you’re a fan of the obscure and utterly average, surely you remember French race car driver Patrick Lemarie. Who could forget the thrilling pair of 10thplace finishes he earned to start the 2003 Champ Car season for the PKV team…before he was sacked…by his manager…who co-owned the team. Well, if you want to breathe in the sweaty essence of Lemarie and don’t mind sending $1550 to a seller in France, you can take home Patrick’s pastel lid that was used during the first two events of a Champ Car career that lasted all of six races.

Bobby Unser

Car Postcard Autographed: Bobby Unser: Indy 500 1981: At first, I assumed this was just a case of the seller having a poor grasp of decimal placement. Unser, the cantankerous 3-time Indy 500 winner, is a beloved member of the IndyCar community, and one who makes himself available for numerous autograph signings throughout the year. Which makes the selling price of $1499.99 for an Unser-signed postcard sound like a typo—a $14.99 item, for sure, right? The seller even declares its shoddy condition (“Well used, marks, bent corners, wrinkles, marks”) giving further rise to the belief it’s something you could buy for a $20 bill with shipping.

But towards the bottom of the page, we quickly find that the seller, owner of ‘AAA Historical Americana – World Exonumia’ believes he’s happened upon a cash cow and has indeed set the price at almost that of an authentic Patrick Lemarie helmet for a signed Bobby Unser postcard… (And trust me, if you want Uncle Bobby to sign something, let me know…it will only cost you the price of a stamp to send it to him in New Mexico.)

Tony Bettenhausen Piece of Car Fatal Accident 1961 Indy

Tony Bettenhausen Piece of Car Fatal Accident 1961 Indy: Looks like eBay has turned me on to another income generator. The description reads: “Up for auction is a very unique piece of Indy 500 memorabilia. It is a piece of Tony Bettenhausen’s car that he was driving when he had his fatal accident in 1961. Comes nicely displayed in an acrylic shadowbox. Piece was obtained from C McCord Purdy a well known collector of Indy 500 race memorabilia.”

I guess I’d also fall into the ‘well known collector of Indy 500 race memorabilia’ category, and like the original seller, have the ability to pick up small pieces of metal off the ground, mount them to a plaque, tape my business card to the top and add thoroughly unverifiable claim of the metal’s origin to the base. Want a piece from the hull of the Titanic? A rivet off the Apollo 11? A bolt once used on a car driven by Ayrton Senna?

If the guy selling this small and randomly macabre “2-3/4″ X 4″ section of aluminum gets the $999.99 he’s asking, I’ll be flooding the market with whatever I can score from the dumpster at my local Home Depot.

SUPER RARE ORIGINAL LEAD SKETCH FROM JEFF ANDERSON OF A MERCEDES INDY STYLE CAR

SUPER RARE ORIGINAL LEAD SKETCH FROM JEFF ANDERSON OF A MERCEDES INDY STYLE CAR:  I’ll go ahead and fix the title for this item: A GUY YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF WHO ISN’T AN ARTIST USED A PENCIL TO DRAW A RACECAR THAT LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING YOU DID IN HIGH SCHOOL WHILE WAITING FOR RECESS.

You can take this ‘SUPER DETAILED’ beauty home for $999.95.

Elk Lighting 5082_2 Indy Race Car Pendant in Satin Nickle Finish

Elk Lighting 5082/2 Indy Race Car Pendant in Satin Nickle Finish: Do you have low ceilings? Looking for new and inventive ways to bleed from your head? Fork over the $225 for this (F1 car posing as an) IndyCar overhead light that’s sure to make dad’s scalp look like a SAFER Barrier, thanks to the sharp edges on this ill-conceived item.

IndyCar Racing -BRAND NEW-Vintage PC Game-3.5″ Disk-Papyrus: And finally, for today, that’s right friends. Take a trip down video game memory lane with this classic, first-generation copy of IndyCar Racing. Still have a computer that uses floppy discs? Can’t be bothered to upgrade to Windows 98?

Car Window Decals

With this article we are going to offer you a few tips about how to properly apply car window decals. Whether you want to apply a parking permit or a college sticker, you need to follow some instructions in order to get it right from the first time. Here is what you should do:

First of all you need to pick the right conditions for this procedure as the decals should be applied on a warm and dry day or in a garage. The glass must be cleaned thoroughly by using mild soap and water. Get a lint-free cloth (a lens cleaner / microfiber) and dry the window in order to make sure that no lint or dust specks get on the decal that you want to apply.

You now need to assemble the right tools for the job: masking tape, squeegee and a knife. Get the decal and place it where you want it. After that, put the masking tape across the decal’s top to hold it on the car’s window. Some recommend that you use overlapping strokes to apply and start at the top center and work your way down and toward each edge. It is advisable to use a smooth and slow stroke when applying car window decals. You need to go over the entire backing and watch as you peel it off.

If you notice that if any of the decal starts to lift off the car’s window, you must press it down by using a knife. With the squeegee or a credit card you need to press all of the backing again. This time use more pressure and go slower. Your last move would be to remove the backing and the decal should be set by now.

To avoid the risk of creating air bubbles, don’t forget to go slowly and start applying a bit of the decal at the time, no need to rush things over. It is highly advisable to avoid using chemical products like glass cleaner on the car’s window as it could damage the decal.
