fill your bathtub with enough water to completely submerge it, add a jug of bleach, and let it sit for a pretty long time. agitate it every now and then. bathtub is important. a sink will not bleach it evenly because the jacket will be folded over and get weird dark spots from that. I bleached a denim jacket from pretty much the dark to the light in your pic like this, it just takes quite a while to get it to desired lightness.

Just go to a local fabric store and look around until you find something that matches. It looks like some type of satin. The brocade would be a little tricky, but is also likely something you can find. The hat is easy as well. There's no point in buying it if you can make it yourself in an afternoon. You could make it with some cloth and a coat hanger if you really wanted to, but cardboard with the cloth stretched over it would be more durable.

Both my struts and shocks are performing quite poorly, and I will order replacements when my paycheck arrives next week.

However, I decided to inspect all 4 wheels to see if the springs needed replacing too, and they all seemed good.

But by jacking all 4 wheels up, and thus extending all 4 struts/shocks to their maximum limit and back down again, the whole suspension seems almost good as new, is this something that normally happens?

The only thing that ever goes wrong with springs is either they loose their elasticity and you can tell when the vehicle sags to one side or they just break.

Jacking a car up and down will tell you almost nothing about the springs unless they drop out of the cups.
>>
>>1053513
For springs, measure your ride height.
For shocks, bounce the car a few times, should bounce 1.5 before becoming stationary. If you replace struts, you should replace springs on the same wheels. you got to take the springs off to get at the struts anyways.

What the fuck? If the shocks blew out because he hit a six inch speed bump at 70mph, the springs are fine. Do you replace your headlight housing when you replace your bulbs?

So today I mounted a TV in my bedroom with a small swivel mount that was rated for 12-32 inch TVs and under 25 pounds. The TV is 32 inches and with an unknown weight and I decided to mount it anyways. The entire night I started having panic attacks and staring at the TV because I don't want it to fall. Is there anything I could do to reinforce or make it stronger? If it was going to fall would a 24 hour test be good enough to relax about it?

So it is outside specification, it could fall, I would get a bigger mount and stop thinking about it

No, it might fall off next week because your mount or the screws need time to work themselves out.

i can't find anything about the following on the internet. Evaporation takes heat out of an object, so warm air, inside a metal tube with wet cloth on the outside could cool the air inside.

If dad bought you tools I would assume he knows how to use them. Take new tools to dad's house and help him with his projects. Learn how to use them. You won't live in an apartment forever.

My calculator's screen suddenly started looking like this, I didn't drop it or anything, it is stored in a cabinet and only I use it. This coincided with me buying and using a linear power supply and an oscilloscope (Rigol DP831 and DS1054Z)

Now, I don't give a fuck about the calculator, but I'm worried about my computer monitor, which is also near the cabinet and both instruments - I'm wondering if they might have anything to do with the calc failing

Is that even possible? Can I measure it somehow? Or was it just a terrible coincidence?

I just now realized I didn't tell you why first thing I needed to "rebuild the wall", and which wall I was referring to.

One of the interior walls was collapsed when I bought the house.
This is presumably because of the extremely humid environment; the mortar was so crumbly it could be broken off the bricks by hand.

Man, and here those Europeans would have you believe that their brick homes were indestructible. Brought low by shitty building standards.

There is a known good solution but you are not going to like it. You have to rebuild the wall and seal it from the outside. That means you have to dig the dirt away from that wall and put a heavy duty water sealant on the brick after you rebuild it. I'm not talking something you buy in a paint can and put on with a brush.

OP, I would be very very cautious with buying an RV in that condition. This is coming from someone that has lived in a 30ft 5th wheel for the last 3 years.

Run it with the back off so you can see the state of the element. If it never turns off then some thermostat isn't tripping.

The area I'm looking at seems to be nothing but fixer uppers or cheap modular homes in that price range. What should I be looking for when buying a fixer upper? I have ~$170K in savings and don't want to go broke after buying a home either. Location is in Virginia, searching between Richmond and Williamsburg along 64.

If you are asking this question, you are unlikely to have much experience in the trades, and a fixer is likely gonna cost you a lot more than you expect.

Why not just buy a lot and build new? Frankly, it can be less expensive, and you then can get exactly what you want.

If you're not that pragmatic, try to find homes that the sellers are in financial distress, rather than the properties in disrepair.

Unfortunately, this is uncommon, as deferred maintenance is usually the first symptom of financial...

'fixer upper' means different things to different people. But, those prices are insane. I paid 140k for a standard Florida city home, 3b2ba, 1960s Tampa bay area. Needed updating, but nothing crazy expensive.

I am glad I didn't go crazy with required fixes, all rooms were functional. We had to move in ASAP, and if you dont have the luxury of a temporary place to stay, you'll be screwed too without a kitchen, bathroom, etc.

Research the local market. I just went through the nightmare of buying a home in northern AZ. Half the houses were rentals that have been destroyed from the native niggers. The other half were overpriced with some seriously shady foundations. I second the build a house idea. It's what I would have done had I the savings for it, or if VA loans covered construction loans.

Hi,
I want to make a small raft to hold a wooden structure. I have attached a sketch of three potential methods to make a keel-like element to prevent it from cap-sizing.
I would love to discuss and get your thoughts on which method will be most secure, simple to execute, efficient etc. and why. If there are further details you need, obviously feel free to ask.

Further info that might be relevant:
For the floats I'll use 2 barrels OR 4 jerrycans, they will be sandwiched between two wooden pallets; the structure will be about 2m tall; the weight at the bottom...

If you make it wider than it is tall it'll be incredibly hard to tip over.

A keel will do nothing unless it's counter weighted which will reduce the buoyancy overall.

How would a counter weight work for a keel? A mast? Also why do you need that?
>>
>>1052948
I have no option to make it wider, at least not to the extent that it will be stable relative to its centre of gravity; therefore a keel is imperative.
And doesn't a keel, by definition, include a weight? either way I intend to use one as marked in my sketch.

Hey diy,
I am replacing the brake shoes and drums on my car. I am having trouble putting a pin in the shoe.
So the other springs just go in holes, but the spring for the auto adjuster need a hollow pin in the hole first. I guess it's not allowed much wiggle room.
On the old shoe, it's a hollow pin with a zig-zag line cut into it. On the new one it's a straight line. There is also a locking ring for the pin, I am unsure how to put it in place.
Have any of you done this before? I can't find anything on it online. I squeezed the pin with pliers and...

Post pics of new shoe, preferably assembled to the point that you got stuck.
Weird setup.
I'm not sure exactly where the issue is.
I see the adjuster lever on the pin pivot with a retaining clip/rod over it that the spring also uses as an attachment point.

2 MB,
I need to take my Logitech G500 mouse apart but I don't have a screwdriver small enough to remove the screws.

Could anyone estimate what screwdriver size I'd need?

Thanks a lot.
