Camaro Police Cruiser: 

Camaro Police Cruiser: Long Mullet Of The Law

The 2010 Chevy Camaro is likely to attract its fair share of police attention. But what if the new Camaro was the police car? Whoa. Rendered gallery below.
The detailed photoshop adds much of the features you'd expect from a police car, including the push-bar and an LED light-strip above the roof. Without many additions the Camaro looks the part of a macho patrol car and reminds us of the Z28 B4C. We also have to credit the creator with the corresponding white-and-blue lights worked into the headlights and alternative taillights, something we now badly want to see... just not in our rearview mirror. 

Repairing a car console armrest

finished 2.jpg
My wife an I recently purchased a "new" used car, and one of the defects was damaged upholstery on the armrest, which also serves as the lid for the compartment between the two fronts seats. This wasn't a deal breaker, but it was annoying enough that I set out to replace it.

What I quickly found was that it was near impossible to replace just this part, without replacing the entire console. I found replacement consoles online, and I even found one in a local salvage yard, but both options involved removing and replacing the entire console - way more time and money than I was willing to invest! And why scrap a perfectly good console when all I needed to replace was the armrest/lid upholstery?

So here is how I reupholstered a damaged armrest in under an an hour, for less than US$5!

(My car is 2007 PT Cruiser, but I imagine there are plenty of damaged armrests out there on different make/model cars, that can be restored in the same way;-)

• A few feet of vinyl
• 3M Spray adhesive
• Packing foam

* Torx bit & screwdriver
• Stapler
• Scissors

Step 1Remove armrest

This is pretty easy, as long as you have the correct tool. I believe I used a 10 or 15 torq bit to remove the three screws holding the armrest in place. Yours may be held in place with different screws, but still likely easy to remove.

Step 2Disassemble armrest

My armrest is made up of three layers of plastic parts; the part that screws into the base, the underside of the lid, which also include plastic tracks that allow the armrest to slide forward, and the top cover (with the damaged vinyl).

First remove the two screws that attach the base bracket to the underside of the lid, then remove the six screws that hold the remaining pieces together.

(One of the plastic tracks on my armrest was broken, likely from a previous owner who tried to pull the lid open without first pushing the release button. I glued this piece back in place during this process).

Step 3Remove vinyl

The vinyl cover is held in place with way too many staples. REmove these staples with a needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver.

Step 4Spray mount foam

To give the armrest a bit of cushioning, I used a bit of packing foam that came with some electronic component I bought ages ago.

Place the plastic lid on top of the foam, and then spray the lid with adhesive. i used 3M 90 HI-Strength spray adhesive, which did he job perfectly.

My foam wasn't quite large enough to cover the lid, so I mounted one piece, and then used a second to complete the job.

Once the top surface was covered, I sprayed a bit of adhesive on the underside, then folded the foam over the lid.

Step 5Cut vinyl

I decided to use a piece of vinyl that matched my car's interior, a light grey. But of course any material can be used; scrap leather denim, or your favorite old sweatshirt. But keep in mind that this piece will get a lot of wear, and vinyl is very easy to clean (and cheap! I paid about US$4 dollars for a half yard at a fabric store).

Step 6Staple vinyl

This I found to be the trickiest step in this process. The difficult part is getting the vinyl to wrap around the lid as tightly as possible. i chose not to glue it with spray mount, as this would make replacing it in the future more difficult.

The trick I used was to first staple the vinyl on the underside length wise, then widthwise, then I folded the corners in towards, creating as bit of overlap in the corners. You want to try and make the corners as tight as possible, to make the final product look close to factory original.

I chose to staple the vinyl, rather than using spray adhesive, to make it easier to replace the vinyl in the future shoul I need to. 

Step 7Reassemble

Once your done stapling the vinyl inside the lid, now you're ready to reassemble the whole cover, reversing the steps you used to disassemble.

The FBI Just Created a National Anti-Laser Attack Task Force

lasers - The FBI Just Created a National Anti-Laser Attack Task Force
Laser attacks are serious business. According to the FBI, they've reached "epidemic levels," with 3,700 expected to occur by the year's end. But we're not talking about some kind of futuristic death rays. No, no. This is about people with laser pointers blinding pilots.
Idiots shining laser pointers at pilots isn't exactly a new phenomenon, but it's not going away. In fact, it's getting a lot worse. Since 2005, "attack" frequency has risen 1,100 percent. That's a problem the new Laser Strike Working Group National Initiative aims to fix.
A Laser Strike Working Group has existed in the FBI's Sacramento division since 2008, and its success there is what prompted the FBI to take it national. Under a law passed this year, laser-wielders can get up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $11,000 for pointing the beams at planes. And that's actually a step down from existing law, which can dish out $250,000 fines and 20 year sentences for interfering with an aircraft in general.
"Use a laser pointer for what it's made for. Aiming a laser pointer at an aircraft is dangerous and reckless. Just don't do it," says George Johnson, a supervisory federal air marshal who is a liaison officer with the FBI. If you see a laser attack, the FBI suggests you call 911, email the Federal Aviation Administration, or get in touch with your local FBI field office. Be careful where you're pointing those things.
