  1. Hi guys, Back on AL after a long time. I recently stumbled on this website called howacarworks.com . They've got an amazing course on auto engineering that costs just $25, but will teach you basically every little thing you need to know about cars. It comes jam packed with high quality videos as well! Fully recommend it to anyone, especially those who want to learn. I personally think its very important for a car owner to at least understand how a car works so that they don't get ripped off by a makabass mechanic.

  2. Guys, I bought a new Hella Classic Horn set for my Vitz and going to fix it (didn't want to do myself but looking forward to If I can make it). I am extending from my question in the following thread and reply from @tiv . Just finding facts and getting guidance. Quoted is the @tiv reply. It seems that there is a relay in the Fuse box and a separate fuse for the Horn. But the thing is the relay is a Relay Integration (highlighted below). It's a single unit with several fuses. So, can I use the existing line and split it to connect the two horns in the new set without using a new r
  3. I'm looking to buy a fuse tap/fuse extender for my car (Honda Grace) which has micro fuses. I'm trying to hard wire a dashcam to my fuse box & is looking for safest DIY way. I have looked though most of the shops in Panchikawatta & all of the shops in Darley road. Shockingly, I was not able to find one - maybe someone in the forum had better luck than me. Can someone help me please? I'm willing to pay for delivery if it can be delivered to me (Dematagoda) soon.
  4. Greetings gentlemen, I just serviced the distributor of my project A72 and wanted to check and adjust the ignition advance curve. At minimum I needed a timing light and a dwell angle meter. As expected, decent tools are expensive. So, here I am looking for a cost effective solution to buying a bunch of speciality tools. Since Arduinos are (relatively) cheap, have sufficient processing power, and has a lot of sensors, I'm trying to make some car diagnostic kit based on Arduino. Disclaimer- With global supply chains down, it will be some time before there is any significant progress in
  5. Dear all, This is not abot automative but domestic renewable energy. Thouht that you will want to share some thoughts. As you know the electricity bill is giving us heart attacks. Thought of doing a research to see how feasiable to install a solar powered energy system at home. Contacted about 3 vendors and rough cost eatimations are below 1kWp (125 units on average capacity) about 550,00 LKR 1.5kWp ( 125 units on average capacity) about 700,00 LKR. Warrenty - 25 years for the solara pannels / 10 years for inverter. I am now considering if I can buy these units seperately (pannel and i
  6. It’s been a while I was thinking of getting a BMW E36. But finally I end up getting an E30. The car has not been abused, but it has accumulated work over the period that needs attention. My intention is to gather up all missing bits and pieces together and build the car back to its original glory. This might not be a big project comparing to some ground up projects and restores. But all help and suggestions are welcome. Here are the things I will have to attend immediately. Complete restore of the instrument cluster. Meters worked for few days after me getting the car, except for the Odomet

  8. Hi All, I'm look to buy a mini lathe machine (please check the attached photograph in this post). Are there any place to buy those machines in Sri Lanka?
  9. Hi Guys, Posting a DYI again after quite some time. After I got new wheels for my car, the stock rims have been lying around and I thought of repairing them. Two of the wheels had nasty kerb damage thanks to the previous owner who was careless when parallel parking (wheels with the most damage were the ones on the left). When I was looking for a set of used BBS rims for my car, 90% of the rims I found had kerb damage. So the problem is pretty common and getting these professionally repaired and resprayed can cost a lot. If you are keen on doing this on your own, you might find this p

  11. After wasting couple of thousand+ rupees for a simple scanning at garages I've found that this simple method do it for you without spending a single cent. Worked perfectly for my Nissan N16. Hope this will be helpful for anybody else who experience the same problem.
