    Perodua Viva Elite

    Machan it could be one of those door sensors too right? I got the same problem on the KE72 when security system was installed.

    Dash Cam recommendations (2019)

    I use Viofo A119. I like it because its pretty discrete and give good video quality. Sample ebay link - https://www.ebay.com/itm/VIOFO-A119-1440p-30fps-Car-Dash-Cam-with-GPS-Logger-V2-2-0-LCD-Screen-A119-G/392192058663?epid=2297434809&hash=item5b5077e527:g:rPMAAOSwze9coedc:sc:UPS2ndDay!94124!US!-1 Here's the the install and sample video -

    Good place for AC repair

    After having continuous repairs on our old KE72 we took it to Frostaire at Union place in 2008. For sure it wasn’t cheap as we replaced quite a few parts but well worth it because it still works until now. All I say is if you do a proper repair rather than patching it might be worth in the long run. I may be wrong but it worked for me.

    Car seat covers

    I highly recommend Gunawardana cushion house @ wijerama. Using them since my parents time. Many options are available (materiel, colors, pattern) and workmanship is really good. I have used them for new seat covers and full floorboard cover (the complete cover on the car under seats from front to boot/cargo area.). Just stop by at this place an get a quote.

    Toyota Hilux SSRX V8 conversion

    Checked few pics and yes, looks like they have solid axle front and rear. I guess that’s great news for getting a good suspension upgrade rather than engine swap. I wish Toyota kept solid axles for all body on frame vehicles 😢😢

    Toyota Hilux SSRX V8 conversion

    I’m not sure why you are planning to do v8 swap? Is it because you want more power? Just my thought. If you want a faster vehicle better to look for a car. If you try to put a bigger engine on hilux you will get much lesser fuel range. If you are off-roading you don’t need v8 power to go over obstacles. Better invest in tires and protection for off-road. Also remember that Hilux is an independent front axle vehicle, so do not put lot of stress on the front axle as it might damage. Solid axles can get bit more abuse but don’t do too much with ifs vehicles. Im not an expert but just sharing what I learned from online search and YouTube so that I wouldn’t damage my vehicle.
  8. Congratulations mate.. BEAUTIFUL...!! 👍
  9. I just created a bit more detailed installation video for a friend of mine. If you are still thinking of paying someone for an install just have a look at this video. Trust you can do yourself..

    Car Polishing & waxing tips

    Not sure about the paint thickness machan. This was repainted on 2006. Old paint was removed completely and repainted. The paint looks good since its not been used much.

    I need sd card

    Sorry if I didn't catch the problem. That SD card is for storing music or GPS? Assuming if its for music can you use USB thumb drive? I use 'SanDisk Cruzer Fit' they are so tiny and not that expensive.
  14. But what do you think about reliability between the two? I think maruti will win? Is it not? No experience with Panda. But loved how simple was the Maruti.

    LED headlamp bulbs

    I checked at halogen options too. When I search more on the Phillips I found that more the light out put you get, lesser the lifespan. Anyways since this thread is for LED headlights don't want to divert the topic.

    LED headlamp bulbs

    All seem to be having 6000K or closer to 6000K color temperature. How good are LEDs with 6000K in wet weather? I'm asking because I wasn't happy with 6000K HIDs in wet weather. I almost felt like driving without lights.

    LED Light Bar

    Sharing my light bar project; I installed this Auxbeam 32 inch light bar behind the grid to look discrete. At first I was bit hesitant to remove the front bumper but YouTube had all the instructions how to remove. For sure it blocks some of the light from the grill but I like the discrete look. Also I don’t think I could expect more light on these comparatively cheap light bars vs those crazy expensive light bars.

    Good dash cam for the Car

    Here is a sample video of mine. I reduce the resolution to 1080p as I use Windows Movie Maker to trim and fast forward the video to reduce playback time and it doesn't publish more than 1080p.

    Selfdriving Prius? (Modified of cause). I guess it will take a long time this to happen in our country as far more intelligence needed with our traffic.

    Portable jump starters

    While I was looking to buy portable jump starters mainly I found 2 type of chargers (There could be more I just did some limited search). One type has capacitors that can use existing charge left on the car battery and gives a boost to start. This one was bit expensive. There was another type that the portable charger has a battery where we need to keep it charged and that battery can give boost to start the car battery. They were cheaper than the capacitor type portable chargers. So personally I use these 2 portable jump starters. (links are only for reference, they were not the exact sellers I bought from) AUKEY 18000mAh Jump Starter with 600A Peak DBPOWER 1200A Peak Portable Car Jump Starter Here is an example using the "Aukey Jump starter" (Only to show that it works, this video was unplanned and i'm not a professional product reviewer) -

    Headlight Bulb Upgrade

    Buying HIDs and LEDs are not easy as buying regular Halogens. See below email where I ordered set of LEDs and they replied saying that it’s no more compatible. If you just buy LED or HID based on bulb base you might be in a risk where it might not focus perfectly as halogens and it might scatter the light to oncoming traffic.
  24. This is the dashcam I use on my car and so far no issues. I think this is somewhat mid level dashcam and it is more than enough for my requirement.
  25. Yes, If you are not hard wiring from the fuse box and just using the cigarette lighter it’s very easy. Many dash cam chargers come with 2 usb charging ports, 1 for the dash cam and the other to charge your phone or other device. You can even install without tools using your nails and maybe a credit card like thing near the A pillar around the airbag. Try to buy a smaller dash cam with a good microsd card so it’s more discrete. Min my opinion it’s not worth to spend money for dash cam installation.
