3rd Time Attaching Rearview Mirror– Glue attached to windshield Using 5-minute Eproxy

Just a month ago, I re-attached the rearview mirror (4 years after my first video showing how to re-attach the rearview mirror), but then it fell off again. Certainly last time was a complete failure. This time I spend more time investigating why it failed. I am doing something different to fix this time so that the previous failure would not repeat again. Last time I had two choices:
1. repeat the process of the first fix and see if it works.
2. find the reason it failed and do things differently.
Since the first choice did not work, I am now trying the 2nd this time in this video.

4 Years Later, Attaching Rearview Mirror Again — Glue attached to windshield


4 years after my first video showing how to re-attach the rearview mirror, it fell off again. While I am glad that it lasted 4 years, it tells me that something is not right. I am not sure why it came off, so I will experiment more and share the results with everyone. I have two options:
1. repeat the process and see if it works.
2. find the reason it failed and do things differently.
Since the rearview mirror repair glue/kit is only $2 at Walmart, it is sensible to first try #1. If it does not work, then I will try something different.

The Cheapest Way To Change Spark Plug

Based on the kinds of the tools you have, I will provide the cheapest way for you to change your spark plug. There are 3 key pieces:
1. the spark plug socket (rubber socket, magnetic socket or spring socket) , did you know you can make your own socket for changing the spark plug?
2. the gap gauge
3. the wrench extension set.

Since you don’t change your spark plug many times, you may not choose to buy a special tool. I claim to be the cheapest.

DIY: Make Your Own Spark Plug Socket

Did you know you can make your own socket for changing the spark plug? You can get rubber socket, magnetic socket or spring socket, but since changing the spark plug is simply removing the old one and installing the new one, if you don’t change spark plug often why spend more money than necessary?

This video discussed various issues about spark plug socket.
