I had the idea to make a 2 person scooter so my wife and I can ride around public bike paths and enjoy the outdoors. I plan to make this scooter Electric in the next article. Continue reading “From Scrap Parts to Rad Scooter!”
We decided we wanted to make a sign for our Swap Meet sale. We wanted to keep with the DIY spirit of howtoengineering.com so we used Wood, Metal, and Tiles for our company sign.
I used old scrap security window bars and made works of art.
(These will also be for sale at the Flea Market, Follow us on Facebook/Twitter for updates)
Here is the first project that will be for sale at the local swap meets and flea markets. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates.
I made a Long-board and Skateboard bench stand. Welding project DIY.

We’ve been having to change pad locks every few years because rain gets inside the lock and we can not unlock it.
I got fed up and made a little metal rain cover.
I started using a piece of cardboard between my battery and the intake a few years ago, and it seemed to gave me about a 2 miles per gallon increase. (Though after building this, I received criticism that this will not help with gas mileage, but will help with performance!)
Now it was time for me to relocate my battery so now I have to make a Hot air block from scratch.
I made this one from metal, and I expect better performance than my cardboard version.
This is the finished hot air block and my new battery box
I was using the stock battery mount location, with a normal tie down, but it kept having issues and getting loose.
So then bought a replacement tie down, but that also came loose.
I wanted to relocate the battery to the trunk, but I have way too many wires added in over time (inverter, fuel pump, 2x amps, and more). So I decided to relocate to about the same area under the hood, but lower and out of the way.
