DIY wrap car aircon hose

This is an easy DIY; you just need to buy aircon insulation hose from air con shop and wrap your car aircon hose.
I bought a 6 feet long superlon for RM2.50 and able to wrap 2 cars.
Hopefully the aircon will be a bit cooler this time... hahaha.... :P

The insulation hose is quite thick
Cut it a side and wrap it around the aircon hose and cable tied it
Wrap until the aircon hose into the firewall

Black & Decker Polisher

I bought a Black & Decker Polisher from Tesco yesterday.
With the polisher I can polish more cars in a day.... :P
It was a tired job to polish 3 cars in a row at home....
I used it just now and I felt it was quite good, my polishing job was faster than before.
The bad things is the polishing sponge will damage after 3 to 4 cars according to manual.
Replacement kit will cost 20 bucks; but I asked my mom to make some replacement kit for me :P
