Fiberglass Repair On My Car?
Hey.. I Have A 69 Bradley Gt2 And Were Sanding It Down For A New Paintjob, But After Sanding Most Of The Car, There Is Cracks That I Think Are Fron The Sun Or Something... But I Was Wondering If Anyone Knows How To Repair The Cracks? They Are Kinda Deep And Very Long Cracks. Primer Wont Fill Them.. And Bondo Is Too Dificult.. Thanks -Josh
Google fiberglass patches and especially look for "slurry".
This is a mixture of fiberglass resin and tiny glass balls or beads that can be mixed to fill cracks in fiberglass. Then a layer or 2 of actual glass cloth can be put on over it. (after the slurry is smoothed.) The Bradleys were notorious for developing cracks from vibration or uneven stress. If you don't fix them properly (fiberglass repair) they will get worse until the body cracks enough to come apart. Bondo doesn't have the required strength for the job, but doing the glass work properly is even more time consuming than working with bondo. Follow the glassing instructions and invest the time to get everything right and smooth and the body will last forever.
How Do I Make My Windows More Energy Efficient?
I Already Put Silicon Around It To Save Energy.
Is It Possible To Glue Another Glass To The Window So That It'S Ticker And More Energy Efficient?
Yes, you could do that, but honestly, for the effort and expense of it to remove glass clean the insets so that new window glazing is effective... you might as well buy insulated replacement windows that will make a huge difference.
A more economical route is this: Thermal curtains. I have bought these special mylar ones when I lived in a 3rd floor apartment that was hotter than blue blazes! I looked on ebay for the guy I bought them from before, but cannot find his sales. He sells actual curtains of mylar. They are shiny silver like foil, but you put them up shiny side out to reflect the suns rays and turn them shiny side inward in the winter to attract rays of sunlight to warm your home. These are used underneath your regular cloth curtains and blinds. They worked super well in summer heat. My apartment was lowered 10-15 degrees when all windows were treated. It acts as sunglasses in summer, so it will be a little darker, but even a light won't make the heat you save yourself! The heat attracted was not something quite so easily measured for me, but it did make a bit of difference sitting near the windows. Eventhough I didn't find the ebay sale for the curtains, the link below is for sheets of the same exact material I keep for emergency blankets for the car in winter. You can use wide tape to fold over and tape down a rod pocket if you wish, but I always preferred to simply tack or staple the mylar directly against the casing along the window itself to cut drafts and "leaks" of heat! The link is below, please check this out... these are far cheaper than anywhere else and are big enough to create nice panels. If you have a picture window or patio which needs covered, just use wide tape very carefully. If the tape needs to be lifted, it will lift the coating that makes the insulation effective, so you'll want to take care not to need to do so.! btw, if you use normal insulated cloth curtains on top of this mylar, you will really save big money!
Hope you try it... it helps a lot!
Repair Of A Car Window, Temporarily..?
I Had To Leave My Car Window Open For A While Recently, Because The Power Window Had Fallen Down Inside The Panel, And I Did Not Want To Remove The Panel Myself Or Pay The $110 Right Then To Get It Repaired (Turned Out There Was No Motor/Regulator Inside, Anyway, And They Replaced Them During The Repair). At First I Used Clear Plastic, But Had Trouble Seeing Out, And Getting It To Stay. Then Someone Suggested Using The Wide Package Sealing Tape, Applying It Horizontally, And Overlapping The Pieces As I Applied It. If You Use A Good Brand Like Scotch, It Works Great, And Lasts A Long Time!
I Wanted To Pass This On, And Ask What Other Methods You Yahoos! Have Tried Or Found Effective In The Past?
Please Do Not Say I Could Have Pulled The Panel Myself, Because This Is Obvious, And I'Ve Already Covered Why I Did Not Do This. I Think Many (Most) Other Folks Would Not Want To, Either, Due To Not Wanting To Foul Up The Panel/Door/Power Mechanism.
I have seen a piece of wood wedged between the window and the panel on the inside of the window
Car Repair Marketing To Insurance?
I'M Working With My Group On A Marketing Project For School. It'S Our Job To Market A Car Detail Shop To Insurance Companies. The Ultimate Goal Is To Have Insurance Companies Recommend The Car Detail Shop For Fixes. How Do Insurance Companies Even Get A List Of That Kind Of Information And Who Qualifies As Someone On The Recommended List?
Automobile detailing shops are too specialized to be on a direct-repair shop list for an insurance company. You wouldn't market the detailer directly to the insurance company. You'd market the detail shop to the body shops that are on the direct-repair shop list the insurer has.
Many body shops sub-contract a dozen or so specialties out to sub contractors. These can include detailing, glass removal and installation, pin-striping, installation of large decals or graphics, complex wiring repairs, trim (seats and convertible tops), "paintless" dent repair work, and rental cars. Smaller body shops many sub-contract things like mechanical work, alignments, tires, airbag work, and frame work. Other than the glass companies these sub-contractors are generally considered too infrequently needed to bother with maintaining any sort of list. On the occasions they are needed the insurance claims adjuster either knows someplace directly or calls his local body shop to ask them.
Insurance claims that require detailing (in the sense that they need cleaning beyond a normal wash and vacuuming) are relatively uncommon. The two that come to mind are flood and extensive blood cleanup, both of which are normally associated with total losses. On rare occasions detailers are needed for things like a bunch of cars parked down-wind of something large being painted that were covered with over-spray, cars that ran over aerosol paint cans or wet road line paint, or damage done by wild animals that get into the car likes skunks or mice, but these are pretty rare.
Insurance companies develop their repair networks largely on word-of-mouth. A need is recognized by the insurer for a type of shop in such-and-such a place and they ask their local field appraiser who he would recommend in that area. The nearest local claims office then puts the shop on a list. Large insurers develop relatively complex tracking systems that "rate" each shop based on things like customer satisfaction surveys, days-to-repair times, and costs.
If you're able to change your marketing project plan then direct the detailers marketing efforts to smaller car dealers, auto body shops, limousine services and places like that. Most of the time these places will be able to handle most of their own detailing needs but they would need specialty shops for extreme or time consuming cases. Detailing is generally for people with lots of disposable income so marketing at places like marinas, tennis clubs, and golf courses would likely also pay off.
