NNBS Cloth Seats

Anyone have some advice on how to remove dog hair from the cloth seats?? It's a 2013 and the outside of the seats is made of a different type of cloth than the center... This outside cloth is literally a magnet for dog hair and the vacuum and lint roller still wont do the trick!

Cree LED Flood Lghts Installed

Got my 2 new floodlights delivered midweek and decided to install them today with the help of some warmer weather. The Strobes N More EFlood 2500 Lumen Flood Lights with 2520 lumen drawing 2.5A apiece were pretty straight forward doing the install.

4x4 operation

2006 1500 Z71 with push button. All stock. Been trying to analyze a driveline noise and do not understand the 4x4 operation. Here is what I know from my truck when not running and in 2WD.

2) Try to turn front CV joints when ...

Painting Chevy Bowtie on Center Cap Painting Chevy Bowtie on Center Cap

I need some advice on how to paint the inside of the Chevy bowties on my wheel center caps. Not sure of the prep work needed for the paint to adhere to the plastic chrome. I have a rustoleum gold metallic paint & primer in-one that matches perfectly. The can says good for plastic, metal, etc... and to just scuff area to be painted. Will this work?

Friday I traded in my 2007 Silverado Z71 1500 for a 2010 Silverado 2500HD (v8 GAS) I have been swooning over the HD's since I got into trucks shortly after my first Silverado in 2011. Back then I didn't even know what an HD even meant...I just knew I wanted a Chevrolet pick up truck as it ...
