Just last week I was polishing my car's finish after tediously waxing it and I noticed a few things. The paint near the fender wells was starting to fade and there were small chips all over the front bumper and hood. It looked terrible and even worse now that I know they are there. We all know that this is just the beginning of surface corrosion and, inevitably, rust. I like my car and am planning on keeping it for a few more years which means I need to call a good paint shop and start setting aside some cash because we all know that body shops aren't cheap.
When I was looking for a good body shop, I got sidetracked by a picture of a BMW that was painted black as night. I had to click on it and see more and it was then that I realized that the car wasn’t painted at all. In fact, it was wrapped in a matte black body wrap that gave it a flawless, ominous appearance. Vehicle body wraps are the latest thing when it comes to making your exotic or performance car stand out from the rest. Vehicle wraps can be used on almost any car, truck, ATV or trailer and they can really transform the appearance from ho-hum to amazing!
The company that did the wrap is called Custom Wraps and they are out of Toronto, Canada. Custom Wraps features the industry’s finest vehicle wraps and have many finishes to choose from including matte, glossy and chromes. You can even get a full body carbon fiber wrap and I have seen one of their projects done in brushed blue steel and it looked unreal. I like the matte finishes the best and they even come in colors, not just black. All of their wraps fully protect your original paint from gravel chips, insects, UV rays and the elements. And, they don’t harm your paint at all and make your vehicle look incredible! In less time than you know and for less than the price of a factory paint job, your car can be wrapped and transformed into something incredible.
Every Custom Wraps is installed by a team of professionals assuring you that your car is in good hands and the wrap will be installed the right way the first time. They are even certified by 3M and Avery Dennison, two of the more prominent vehicle wrap manufacturers. Their installers have from 5 to 13 years of experience installing vehicle wraps. And being 3M preferred means that they had special training at 3M facilities and then had to pass 2 days of rigorous testing. It isn’t easy to become a 3M Preferred installer. Think about it, there are less than 10 of them in the whole GTA and their installer, Alex Severin, is the only 3M certified installer in Scarborough!
The main reason Custom Wraps is considered by many to be the best in the industry is there free replacement policy. When you visit their site you will see the other reason, their work. Custom Wraps not only look good, but they are made to last. Your car’s appearance will be dramatically changed and you won’t ever want to go back to a painted finish again.
When you order a wrap from Custom Wraps you can be 100% sure that:
• There will not be any cheap materials used.
• All technical bulletins, instructions and best practices will be followed.
• No damage will be made to your car’s paint.
• A comprehensive warranty will be given both on the materials and installation.
• There will not be vinyl failures due to poor installation.
You can find Custom Wraps on Facebook, where you can find more pictures of cars in their wraps. Go on over to the Custom Wraps website and find out how you can get one installed on your car and how to take care of it and keep it looking good. Custom Wraps offers vehicle wraps for all makes and models of luxury and exotic cars including BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar and Audi as well as a full line of truck, trailer and ATV wraps. No matter which product you choose, you are sure to get the highest quality and best look for your money, guaranteed.
Go on over to their website and see what they have for you and your vehicle. You will be amazed at how good a full body vehicle wrap will make your car look and how much it will stand out. I'm contacting them soon about getting a wrap for my project and so should you.

Today we have a special guest blogger, a local independent car dealer named Jon Terns, He owns Lakeshore Auto and offers some of the best deals in town on low mileage used cars. But before I get too far into sounding like an advertisement for his dealership, I will let him take over and provide our readers with some weekly entertainment.
Hi, my name is Jon and I own and operate Lakeshore Auto. A lot of people think that the life of a used car salesman is easy; you just put some cars on your lot and people will come buy them. It’s actually a lot more involved than that and there are some pitfalls to the used car industry. The one main obstacle that all dealerships face it finding cars to put on their lots. Granted, there is a never ending supply of used cars on the market today, but for a used car dealer, we all have to wait in line at an auction and spend most of the day bidding on cars to get the best deals so we can pass those savings on to our customers. If we didn’t sell our cars for a low price, we would go out of business so the auctions are a very important place for us.
I am fortunate enough to have over 100 dealer-only auto auctions within a two or three state drive and that gives me a wide range of choices. I have been in business for over 20 years and I have the knowledge and experience to decide which auctions are right for me and when. A lot of new dealers don’t have this experience and they are left guessing. To help these new guys, and gals, out, I am going to let you in on a little secret about an online resource that many of us car dealers use to decide which auctions we will go to and which ones we will skip.
The website is called Auto Auction Review and it is just that, a review site that provides useful information about local and national auto auctions and provides real reviews from real dealers. AutoAuctionReview.com lets you search by location and allows you to decide which auto auction is right for you based on the trusted reviews of dealers nationwide.
If you are new to the game or you just want to check out and out of state auto auction, AutoAuctionReview.com is the first place to go. Unbiased reviews, useful information and an online community of auto dealers working together to make the industry better. You can even leave a review of your own and let others know about a particularly good auto auction in your area.
AutoAuctionReview.com is a great place for car dealers to network, find new auctions and learn about which ones to avoid. If you are a new or used car dealer and you need stock for your lot, check AutoAuctionReview.com first and be in the know.

Five. That’s how many torch tips I have purchased this year alone. If you are like me, you probably use your propane torch extensively in your shop or garage. From brazing and soldering of pipe fittings, to heating up bolts, breaking through rust and just all around hard use, our torches go through a lot. They get banged around, they fall off work benches and they tip over constantly. Sure, you can try those little stubby cans, but they are really hard to hold and use effectively. They were a great idea, just designed by someone who doesn’t work in a shop setting.
There has to be a better way to keep your torch upright and keep it from falling over every time you set it down right? There is and I just bought it! It’s called The Torch Tamer and it is an ingenious device that holds your propane torch for you while you are not using it. If you are in the middle of heating up a bolt and need to get the wrench on it quickly, now you have a place to set your torch without worrying about it falling over and burning your leg (yes, I have done that many times!). Maybe you are soldering a pipe fitting and your cell phone rings. Safely place your torch in The Torch Tamer and now you can answer your phone without worrying about a hot, or even a live, torch creating an unsafe environment in your work space. With The Torch Tamer, you never have to lay your torch on its side again!
Maybe I sound like an advertisement for The Torch Tamer and, if so, I don’t mind. I really like this product and if it save me from having to spend $25 on a new torch tip every 2 months, I will tell everyone I know about it. I bought mine from their link on Amazon and paid less than 8 bucks for it. When you compare that to the cost of a new tip, a burned leg, or worse, a fire, it’s a big savings.
You can even use The Torch Tamer as a torch holder. Just place your torch in the stand and aim it where you need it. Now, you have two hands for tools, solder or anything else you need to do while The Torch Tamer safely holds your torch keeping it from tipping over.
Whether you do a lot of soldering and use your torch regularly, or you just use it once in a while and need a safe place to store it while not in use, The Torch Tamer is perfect for you. Buy one today, you’ll be glad you did!

Does everyone know what silly string is? What about tree sap, bird dropping and acid rain? These re all things that are cars, trucks and SUV’s face every single day. Well, maybe yours doesn’t have to face the silly string every day, but I am sure it has some other potential hazard to deal with on a routine basis. The reason I am asking you all of this is not because I have dreams and aspirations of becoming a teacher one day and I wanted to throw a pop quiz at you; far from it. I am asking my readers if they know what is attacking their car’s paint every day while it is parked outside in the elements.
There are many potential environmental dangers to your car’s paint that are working their way through the wax and the top coat right now as you read this. Don’t stop reading though, the information that follow is of great importance to you and you just might learn something about how to protect your car’s paint.
First of all, anything, and I do mean anything, that adheres itself to your car’s paint will begin destroying the top coat and, sooner than later, eat away at your paint and your car’s body. What can you do to protect it? Aside from routine washes, hand waxing your car with expensive carnauba wax, keeping it parked in a sealed, climate controlled garage and using a very large umbrella over it while driving it in the rain (don’t laugh, this will become big in Japan very soon!) there isn’t much you can do to protect your car from the elements.
There is one other thing that you can do and it works very well to protect your automotive investment; you could purchase a car cover and keep your car well protected when it is parked inside or out. There are many companies selling car covers that are designed to protect your car from whatever want to feed on it protective surface, but there is only one online resource that helps you wade through the 1,000’s of companies to find the one that suits your needs and the needs of your car.
It’s called CarCoverGuide.com and they are one of the best online resources for researching car covers and finding the best places online to buy them. From universal car covers, to a custom fit model that will cover and protect your car for many years to come, CarCoverGuide.com has the information you need, when you need it.
Your car is being attacked by the elements every day, do something to protect it. Visit CarCoverGuide.com and learn more about how to protect your automotive investment and how to find the perfect car cover for your car today. After the last silly string incident from the neighbor’s kids, I am buying a car cover for mine now and I found it on CarCoverGuide.com with a link that is going to save me money!

If you are in the Toronto area and you are looking for your next car, I am going to let you in on a little secret that a good friend of mine told me. He was in the market for a new BMW but he had been searching and searching locally for a good deal. Anyone who knows BMW’s, knows that they are one of the best vehicles on the road and you would also know that new ones can be expensive and, because of the high demand, there aren’t very many deals to be had. What does all of this have to do with the secret I was going to let you in on? Well, after weeks of searching for a deal on a new one, he was relegated to looking for a used one that was almost new, but had that used car sticker price.
This is what led him to look closer to the Toronto area and a dealership call Luxury Auto Sales. They have the best prices and the best cars out of any other dealership around. These guys are THE PLACE to buy your used BMW in the Greater Toronto area, or anywhere else for that matter! They have the best selection and Luxury Auto Sales has set the standard for quality used BMW’s in Toronto.
I checked out their website online and it has more used BMW’s than you could imagine; most of them very low miles and all of them in excellent shape. I think a used car should look like a used car, especially when you factor in the savings or buying brand new, but Luxury Auto Sales thinks a used car should look and feel brand new so they go through every car they sell to ensure it is in perfect condition from top to bottom. If you are looking for a used BMW in Toronto, why would you shop anywhere else?
Luxury Auto Sales serves the Vaughan, Toronto, Brampton, North York and Mississauga areas and carry a full line of used cars from BMW, Audi and Mercedes as well as many others. If it‘s a high end sports sedan, chances are, you’ll find it at Luxury Auto Sales and you’ll get a good deal on it. Visit them online, or stop in at their showroom in Woodbridge, whichever you choose, you will always find a good deal on a used BMW at Luxury Auto Sales.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but one of my hobbies when I was younger was spending hours on the weekends searching for that one special project car that I could take home and make new again. I had visions of finding an elusive model just waiting to be turned back into that street machine that it once was.
Many years, and many cars, later, I don’t think there are any more of those special cars out there for us. The scrapyards have all been picked over and all that’s left is parts for today’s cars and trucks with the random rusted out Chevelle here and there. Today, my hobby has gone from searching the scrapyards for a diamond in the rough, to searching the repo lots for a car that is flip-worthy and can make me some extra money. I have even found a couple that I would sell my own car to have!
The repo lots offer us the ability to find a car that we might not normally be able to afford at a much lower price. Remember, repo lots sell the cars for what is owed on them, not for what they are worth; this means great cars and big savings for you and me.
When someone defaults on their car loan, the bank or credit union will repossess that car, truck or SUV and sell it for what is still owed on it. This means that you can find incredible deals on cars all over the country. How do you know where to look for these cars? That’s the easy part! Not many repo lots advertise their products or selection and searching online can be quite time consuming. What do you do? You go on over to repofinder.com and let them do the searching for you!
Repofinder.com is a free nationwide resource for buyers looking to purchase repossessed cars, trucks, motorcycles and from local credit unions and banks. Whether you live in Anchorage or Tallahassee, you are sure to find a repo lot near you on repofinder.com.
With repofinder.com, you will never pay retail for a used car ever again! They will help you find the car you are looking for in any part of the country quickly and easily. Whether you are looking for your kid’s first car, a used car for yourself or one to flip and make a little extra profit, repofinder.com is your trusted online repo lot resource.
Visit their website today, and start searching for your next car tomorrow! Remember it’s repofinder.com and they are standing by to serve your needs and help you find the car of your dreams that fits your budget.
