    Distressed Motorcycle Headlight

    Beauty! They don't make bikes like that any more. Love the fuel level tube on the tank. Did that come from an espresso machine?

    DIY bumper repair

    Pure genius! I never thought of using a towel and boiling water. That will now be my go-to remedy.When it happened to me in the past, I used a heat gun on low and got results that were satisfactory but the repair remained obvious. The problem was that the plastic was heated unevenly and, if heat was left on a spot for too long, the paint blistered.For future reference, you may be interested to know that it's usually pretty easy to remove the bumper cover completely for unobstructed access to the back of the dent. In my experience, they are usually secured with a few bolts and/or removable/reusable plastic rivets. It helps to have the car's service manual (see eBay). Even if you don't, you'll probably find removal instructions for your particular car on Google and/or YouTube.

    What a great idea!

    Good idea. Where did you get all those parts for ≤ $10?

    Building and Using a MOSFET Arduino Shield

    Great ible on using one of my favorite semiconductors for useful purposes. I've pretty much given up on solid state and mechanical relays. Instead, I have a sack of MOSFETs to use whenever I need them. Quick, simple high current switches. Your board, however, takes MOSFET switching to a whole other level! Bravo!Excellent soldering tutorial, too!

    Epoxy -vs- Tshirt = Artwork

    I forgot to mention what a great idea it is!

    I second the System Three Clear Coat suggestion. I use West System resin and 207 hardener as a bomb-proof wood finish base over which I spray automotive clear coat. But the West product has a light yellow tint even when fresh. It doesn't distract from the wood because pretty much all wood has some yellow in it. However, if you want the colors to remain true, System Three Clear Coat would be a better choice.
