This is a short tutorial on how I replaced the Ambient Light Sensor on my 2000 GMC Sierra. I was having problems with my headlights being on all the time instead of turning off in the daylight. I replaced the sensor ($15 from the dealer) and it fixed the problem. I imagine it's the same for 99-02, but not sure of the later years. If this video helped you and saved you some time/money and you have an extra 30 seconds, please refresh and watch the advertisement...throw a few cents my way. It would be appreciated!

This is a video of how we installed cable railing on our ground level deck and saved a lot of money in the process by using common hardware store items. Kits to do this can cost hundreds of dollars, and we did it for less than $60. THIS IS A METHOD FOR GROUND LEVEL DECKS, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THE SMALL ELEVATOR BOLTS FOR A HIGHER STRUCTURE. I WOULD USE LARGER BOLTS AND RETAIN THE CABLE ON BOTH ENDS TO NOT JUST RELY ON FRICTION FOR AN ELEVATED DECK. Tools: Drill 9/64" all purpose drill bit (to drill through bolt threads). If you flatten the threaded part of the bolt with a hammer a little bit, it makes it easier to drill and leaves a little more metal on the outside of your hole. 1/4" drill bit (to drill through posts for cable and for eyelet bolts) Forstener Drill Bit (pick a size that is smaller than the diameter of the bolt head you use) I believe I used a 7/8" or 1" bit. Bolt Cutters (for crimping cables ferrules) Fencing Pliers (for cutting the cable) Crescent Wrench (for tightening eyelet bolt nuts) Materials: should be able to find all of this at your local hardware store... 1/8" Cable Ferrules/crimping sleeves (pack of 15) https://www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/material-handling/cable-wire-accessories/1-8-cable-ferrules-15-pcs-box/p-1444439896572-c-13444.htm?tid=3578511688883712387&ipos=1 1/4" x 7-1/2" Steel Hook Turnbuckle with Aluminum Body https://www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/household-hardware/utility-hardware/turnbuckles/national-hardware-reg-1-4-x-7-1-2-steel-hook-hook-turnbuckle-with-aluminum-body/p-1444448915866-c-9710.htm?tid=5363778275835561553&ipos=4 1/8" Galvanized Cable https://www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/material-handling/cable-wire-accessories/metal-shop-1-8-x-50-galvanized-cable/p-1444437047489-c-13444.htm?tid=5792416829520388554&ipos=2 1/4" x 4" Stainless Steel Eye Bolts https://www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/fasteners-fastener-accessories/bolts/eye-bolts/national-hardware-reg-1-4-x-4-stainless-steel-eye-bolt-with-nut/p-1444448925226-c-19668.htm?tid=7644156144437655686&ipos=11&bargainStoreId=3275 1/4"-20 x 1" Elevator Bolts https://www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/fasteners-fastener-accessories/bolts/carriage-bolts/midwest-fastener-reg-1-4-20-x-1-chrome-grade-a-elevator-bolt-1-count/p-1444440176098-c-8731.htm?tid=-6768774712373750530&ipos=1 3/8" inside diameter-thick washers https://www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/fasteners-fastener-accessories/washers-spacers/flat-washers/3-8-x-086-thick-washer-gr8-1-pcs-box/p-1444440187092-c-8945.htm?tid=-313273895780844756&ipos=2

replacing the inner tie-rod on a 2010 Chevy Camaro. After the repair, YOU WILL NEED AN ALIGNMENT IMMEDIATLEY. I am not a certified gm mechanic, I am not responsible for any damages that may occur from you trying this yourself. That being said, I hope this can be a good reference to anyone trying to save a little money on repairs. Thanks!

Applying Rhino Shine Ultra to the Rhino Lined rocker panels on my GMC Sierra. It's supposed to rejuvenate sun faded Rhino Lining, and it seems to do just that. Was pretty simple to apply and looks really nice. I will try to post a long term review or just update this description as the Rhino Shine ages. UPDATE: It's now October 26th, 2016 and it's still holding up great...still nice and black. Seems like it should last a while!

We were inspired by a friend of ours who is also a builder, she made this chair and it looked awesome. A deck chair made of 2x4's and 2x6's from the local lumber yard. It is finished with natural deck stain and assembled with deck screws. It's made to fit a 25"x25" outdoor chair cushion. We used plans from Ana-White.com for all dimensions and materials. http://www.ana-white.com/2017/06/free_plans/modern-outdoor-chair-2x4s-and-2x6s

This bar is installed on my 2015 Toyota Tacoma with brackets that I also purchased from Auxbeam. It is a normal LED light bar that is a flood/spot combo. It has amber leds to backlight it with your daytime running lights. I had to modify the brackets a little to make them work with the 30” bar. They seem like they would fit better with a 32” bar. I had to bend them in an inch or so on both sides. Link to 30” Amber Backlit Bar: https://www.auxbeam.com/70026026

Applying Noico sound deadening in the passenger door of my 2015 Toyota Tacoma. This is a time lapse of a 2 hour job. This much sound deadening isn't always necessary but I wanted it covered. I applied some smaller pieces on the outside skin of the door as well, but it's hard to see in the video since it's sped up. I used Noico 80 mil sound deadener from amazon.com
