Re: Knock on Model A's door

Re: Radiator Wire Figure "ART". Tutorial

Use Telecom wire, its plastic coated, make a staple, poke it through and 4 twists tight will hold it in a few places. It does vibrate and will cut the Radiator or rattle apart a dud solder.

Re: Logo Lites USB Charge Port

Re: Strange Engine Noise
