Express operators and their customers can agree that thoroughly drying a vehicle surface via carwash dryers

Express operators and their customers can agree that thoroughly drying a vehicle surface via carwash dryers is massively important. Dryer performance ends up being one of the most important factors when customers judge a carwash’s performance and final results. A dry surface can equal excellent service, but a soggy vehicle will frequently frustrate paying customers and leave spots on otherwise clean paint. In order to prevent spotting and ultimately satisfy every customer, wash operators and managers must regularly work to fine-tune their dryer equipment. Only by following all the recommended upkeep steps can a business guarantee maximum performance and realize the added benefit of minimizing energy waste. Here, experts indicate that proper dryer installation should be a big focus, and they share other operator best practices aimed at efficiently drying vehicles. Since dryer systems are so important, there are many factors to consider when fine-tuning their operation. First, the airflow from the dryers’ blowers should always provide adequate coverage of vehicle surfaces, according to Cheryl Dobie with Aerodry Systems LLC. An owner can observe the water movement on a vehicle and ...

As the age of the cars being restored grows older, the rust damage needing to be

As the age of the cars being restored grows older, the rust damage needing to be repaired becomes more extensive. Panels that we wouldn’t have even thought to replace a few years ago are being replaced. The upper dash is one of those panels. It’s a part that most folks don’t associate with rust damage, as quarter panels and floor pans seem to get all the glory in that department. But over the years, water seeps under the windshield and through the trim holes. If left untreated, this cancer will spread to the A pillars and the cowl. The good news is, the upper dash is one of the easiest panels to replace! The welds on the back and sides are covered by the dash pad. The upper cowl grill covers the welds on the front side. Also, the upper dash doesn’t involve any structure in the car. If the cowl is in good shape, there’s no need to use any bracing when removing the upper dash. It’s the perfect project for anyone who has limited or no experience with panel replacement. As with any panel replacement, proper preparation is key. Measure twice before cutting anything. Take photos of the upper dash, make note of the places where it’s spot welded, and the places along the corners where i...

Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric motorcycle back in production

The problem that caused production to cease a week ago was limited to a single motorcycle, a spokesperson told The Verge in an email sent on Friday, without disclosing what the problem actually was. “Temporarily stopping LiveWire production allowed us to confirm that the non-standard condition identified on one motorcycle was a singular occurrence,” the spokesperson said. Harley-Davidson ceased LiveWire production and warned owners not to charge at home, but to instead use dedicated chargers located at dealers, just weeks after the first of the zero-emission motorcycles were delivered. The company said the motorcycle is now safe to charge at home. Owners should see 146 miles of range in city riding from the air-cooled 15.5 kilowatt-hour battery, which drops to 70 miles on the highway (there are no EPA figures since the agency does rate motorcycle efficiency). And peak output of 105 horsepower should see the bike accelerate to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. The LiveWire is Harley-Davidson’s first foray into electrification and while pricey at $29,799, it should help pave the way for more affordable electric motorycles, as well as scooters and bicycles from the company. Alumin...

3-bedroom Tampines condo unit with lots of wood and greenery, Business News

A modern home, swathed in hues of golden-brown and green, shows what happens when you embrace the best that nature has to offer. Every angle of Adrian Chua and Irene Ng’s abode accords a soothing vignette. With most of its surfaces clad in beautifully grained teak veneer plywood, the apartment exudes a cosy and rustic vibe, accented by notes of modernity. Greenery is incorporated into the nature-inspired look, in the form of a living wall in the living area and around 150 plants peppering the interiors. The renovation was handled by the couple themselves, who are the founders of Paper Carpenter, a business that uses cardboard to create installations, art displays, and even pet furniture. Dressing the walls of the living room (and reaching the ceiling of the corridor and into the master bedroom at the back of the apartment) are 3mm-thick teak veneer ply pieces, cut into 4-by-8-inch strips and staggered. Adrian shares that he chose teak for its durability and unique grains. He scoured through the wood piles of four different shops to get cuts from various trees for a more textured and distinct look. Adrian preserved the wood’s natural golden-brown colour, which he love...
