How Long Does It Take to Paint a Car

Good afternoon. My name is Tom Burns, NOFX certified master mechanic from Redding, Pennsylvania. Today I’m going to briefly talk about how long it takes to paint a car. We’re not gonna include all the time. It takes, the extensive time it takes to do to cover all your, your lenses, your windshield wipers, all your glass. Um, the prep time alone is an inexperienced person will take hours to do an experienced person prepping the car, probably take a couple of hours, three, four hours to the properly tape, everything off. But, uh, the unexperienced tech that this painting a vehicle can usually spray it in 45 minutes to an hour, hour and a half. Um, it really is not too much for somebody that does it on a routine basis.

But for an experienced person, the pain of vehicle, I’m an inexperienced person. The pain of vehicle, um, I would say it would probably take you relatively a couple of hours. Um, three most. Um, one thing I don’t recommend doing it if you got this thought in your head is that the, you spray paint it. It’s okay to touch up a small area, but to a paint a whole vehicle with a whole bunch of spray cans, you’ll, you’ll probably use to 30, 40 cans and email. They don’t want to go down that road. Um, that’s about it. I mean, it takes a couple of hours to the, and the painter vehicle. It’s, it’s really not that bad.

How Much Gas Money Does a Manual Transmission Save

Good afternoon. My name is Tom Branson off certified master tech out of writing, Pennsylvania. And today I’m gonna talk a little bit about how much guests does your manual transmission safe. Um, that is a huge misconception. Um, did a lot of people have done throughout the years? You can look on your, your, the sticker on the windshield and you’re looking at new cars and you see, um, highway mileage on manual transmissions is a little bit greater. Um, it, it basically is all going to fall back and depend on your driving.

You driving habits, whether you’d like to fly down or pull out fast. Um, manual transmissions will save you a little gas mileage, but you have to drive carefully. Um, do I have him 70, 80 miles an hour down the highway obviously isn’t going to help you? Not Pulling out fast is not going to help you not blocked the view drive responsibly. Um, keep everybody around speed limit 55, 60 miles an hour. It will save you a little bit, but typically not more 10 50%. Um, but hopefully that’ll, that’ll sum it up for you. Um, maybe get rid of some of that misconception of manual transmission saved me some gas, but, um, that’s basically, hopefully, that answers your question on how much gas is my main transmission safe.

How to Change Brake Pads

Good afternoon. My name is Tom Brunson off certified master tech out of budding Pennsylvania. And today I’m going to show you how to change brake pads. Now the first thing you want to do, let’s make sure the car is all jacked up and secured nice and easy. Up near you’re going to locate your two bolts. Three bolts are four bolts holding your caliper on. Typically just to take your two bolts out and make sure you’re going the right way.

These bolts out, take your caliper out and the last thing you want to do is let this thing hanging down here. She won’t bring it up here, let it rest up there. Nice and easy. Put your brake pads out of the holders. Real simple to come out. Good. That’d be new ones sliding might in their first year out of the way so you can see here. Set that in there.

You know what? Take your brake pad set in here. Take your brake caliber toy. You can find these any local parts store asking for when you’re going to buy your brake pads. Are there new under $10 did you brake pad in there? Put this in there and just start turning in there. It’ll pull one side in and then the other set of the following suit.

I’m trying to see if she can see it. Why don’t you get that all the way back? It’ll stop on its own. Pull this out. Take your break pen, sir.

So that back over and not smash little boots here. Put your bolts back in it. Just make sure you pump up your brake pedal before you move it. It’s as easy as that.
