What to Look for in a Car Cover

You lovingly wash and wax your vehicle on most sunny weekends, spending time detailing every single blotch, nick, scrape, or other damaging mark on your car's exterior. Part of the deal with owning any vehicle is making certain that it looks its best week in and week out. Still, you may not be doing all that you can to protect the finish. Other enemies including bird excrement, acid rain, and even harmful UV rays can thwart the best efforts of even the most diligent car owner.

Love Your Car With a Clear Bra

The 3m clear bra is a wonderful invention for any car-lover who treats his prized possession like a true friend. A man's best friend is not always the family dog. Sometimes a car can take the place of a great pet and nothing hurts more than seeing that first scratch or dent on your favorite automobile. However, traditional protective bras are not the most attractive option for car owners who want to protect their investments. The problem with the traditional protective covering is simply due to the fact that it covers the magnificent machine. No real car enthusiast wants to hide his prized automobile under a rubbery surface. He doesn't want to spend a lot of money on the perfect finish to cover it up with a protective layer.

A car enthusiast can opt for a 3m clear bra that protects the car by creating a colorless barrier between the car's finish and the elements. The 3m clear bra is simply a protective...

 


Bike Racks Are a Boon

What do you do if you want to take your bikes on holiday? You can't exactly cycle there in most cases, but you'd like to cycle around once you get there. The answer is to simply attach your bikes to your car using a bike rack, and then drive them there. It's a lot easier than taking them on public transport, and cheaper than renting bikes once you get there. Bike racks sit on top or on the back of your car, and can hold a surprising number of bikes, sometimes as many as five on one rack. They are very useful, yet generally inexpensive, and you can buy them at any good sporting goods or bicycle store. Don't worry too much about which model you get: as long as it can hold the number of bikes you need it to, it'll generally be just fine. If you're going to fit a bike rack to your car, however, it is important to realize that it could potentially be a hazard not only to you and your car, but also to the other drivers on the road. For this reason, you need to make sure that the rack is secured to your car exactl...

 


Not Your Ordinary Rearview Mirror

A new, patented vehicle mirror that provides 260-degree peripheral vision without head movement is making driving easier, safer and less stressful for people with a variety of vision and other impairments-including its inventor. Brad Sawyer, a 100 percent-disabled, Vietnam-era veteran, designed the mirror as a driving aid for himself. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) has fused Sawyer's spine, neck and rib cage, leaving him unable to turn his neck. With his safety mirror, Sawyer says he can look straight ahead and work the left and right hinges to look in either direction, clearly seeing when it is safe to turn left or right. Easily See If Cars Are Coming "When I've angled the visor correctly, I no longer have to ask other people if cars are coming," Sawyer says. His condition is just one of many disabilities that the MultiFlex Adjust-A-View Safety Mirror helps people overcome, Sawyer says. He describes a 33-year-old mother of two who has had her driver's license for 16 years. She drives herself and others, inc...
