Most valued coffee jar ever!
Kudos to you! Simple, elegant solution that will help many!
Something worth noting is that car upholstery is really tough so if you find the right seats that are just dirty you can clean almost anything out. I have used really aggressive stuff like Tide or even comet and a stiff scrub brush and then pressure washed the seats, leave them out in the sun till dry.
Nice instructable! I always say, anything worth do is worth overdoing!
My thought was to take a more direct approach and use a small 10HP diesel engine driving a single wheel behind the car. Put the whole assembly on a receiver hitch so it can be removed and put on for the 4 highway trips per year that I take. This would eliminate all the inefficiency losses due to running a generator and converting the power in the battery charger. The drive could be direct through a chain with a clutch to engage/disengage the drive once highway speed is reached. The electronics in the car would simply perceive the entire trip as being downhill or with a very strong tailwind!
At 100 Kmph my Nissan Leaf (one of the most aerodynamic cars on the road) draws about 15000 watts of power, that is getting to be a pretty good sized gen set.
As someone who has survived hantavirus (no it is not always fatal) I will support the argument that mice CANNOT be in your living space. Just had a mouse in the house and read your 'ible after finding the peanut butter had been licked clean from the triggers on my traps. Did the tweak you suggested and 1 hr later, no more mouse! Thank you
