I took my car to Brakemasters in a pinch.  I needed new front pads and rotors and figured they could handle the job.    The installed the new rotors and pads OK, but they quickly warped as I was initially sold sub-par parts, especially for the heavy, 3800lb Mercedes 300sdl.   I was able to […]

Posted on 06/08/12 No Comments

By accident, I discovered that WVO is an excellent weed/grass killer.  I had a spill on my lawn one day, and a week later I noticed a bare spot where the ever-difficult-to-kill bermuda grass had fallen dead, roots and all.    So much for using this as a fertilizer, but it can be used as […]
