    Insurance companies watching your driving through a smart phone

    Not interested in these monitoring apps. Ask what the maximum theoretical discount will be ahead of time. My friend tried the app thing for ~3 months, once the 3 months is over they will apply the savings to his plan and future renewals. Ended up being like $60 savings total for a 6 month...

    Solar Attic Fans vs Wired vs None

    If you add a powered fan and it pulls any air from the house you are hurting your cooling performance. This is due to extra hot air being pulled into the conditioned area from the fan so I'd be careful that does not happen.

    Motul DOT 5.1 anomaly

    Motul has had 5.1 for a while, I'd be concerned about how old some of your bottles are. Just some conversation but Bosch ESI6 is a great alternative and designed for extended intervals which might be a better fit for your car. Though the price has almost doubled in a year. Stoptech 309 pads...

    Moving to Florida and UV damage

    Moving to Florida and UV damage

    Sealants and Waxes offer poor UV resistance, the sun is intense here so they wont really do much in that regard. For example Of 41 Ceramic Sealants tested here the highest was a 4.3% reduction of UV and a majority <2%. The best defense with UV is not to be exposed to it.

    Construction Adhesive or Epoxy for TV Mount?

    Adhesive will likely fail overtime from the temperature swings and the difference in thermal expansion rates. I would rather through bolt it and never have to worry about it falling.
