Restored Value

There are several things that make a car valuable. Most put a price on the car’s performance, making sure the engine is in tip-top shape, fuel-efficient, yet still powerful. Others may think that the value lies in the cabin and its interior, after all no one would want to buy a car whose seats seem like a dog chewed its way right through. There are also those people who put a price on the actual car and its name. Obviously certain brands just carry more value in them for the simple fact that the brand has a premium. However, a lot of people don’t seem to value the paint as much as the other components.

The paint of a car has to be one of the more important components since it is what is immediately seen by onlookers. As your car ages, the paint wears down after years of exposure to the elements. It’s at this point that one should visit the nearest industrial paint booths and put some value back in your automobile.

Every car owner has some apprehension on getting their car repainted especially by someone who isn’t the original manufacturer. The original paint of the car is always something different from a paintjob done by a third party company. But technology has come a long way and companies now provide high quality painting facilities with state-of-the-art technology like waterborne drying systems. Give your car a second life and get a new paintjob, restoring value to your precious ride.

How to Safely Use a Car Jack

Written by: Toolsmith Direct

Using a car bottle jack to change a tire is something most car owners will come into contact with at least once during the duration of car ownership. You will need access to your car’s under carriage, which typically requires a jack to lift the car from the ground.

What Not to Do

Don’t use car jacks to hold a car in place, it is strictly for raising or lowering the car to change tires and do maintenance to the under carriage. Do not leave the wheels unblocked or your car runs the risk of rolling, which could knock it off the jack and cause serious problems for whoever happens to be working underneath. You should also avoid changing tires on a freeway, pulling off to the side wherever possible.

What to Do

Begin by parking your vehicle on the side of the road, or in a space that is safe for your to work. Feel beneath the car for the bar of your chassis and position the 3 ton floor jack so that it will raise the car from that support. Put the car in park if your transmission is automatic, and engage the parking brake. If you do not have blocks to stop your car from rolling, turn the wheel of your car so that the tires are against the curb.

Jack the car up slowly, then place stands beneath the car. Lower the jack until the car rests comfortably on the stands that you set up.
