The method in which you tied one end of the string to the door handle and the other end to the bad tooth and then when you opened the door the tooth was gone.

Very,nice thread i used to buy some after market spares earlier to get them fitted on my passion. but in turn i would damage the original fittings in my bike. the sadest part was i was never even thinkingonce,nor asking any body whether this can be done ? whether this will work on my bike ? jjust go to any accesorry shop and buying things and wasted a whole lot of my hard earned money.

Moral i have learnt experimenting things without knowing what it is how do it, do you have self confidence that you can do if not please don't experiment things.

my first DIY was a complete rebuild of an old bicycle (kiddie type) my dad gave me. when i was in high school, i had let the whole thing rust. after my boards, took it apart, sanded and re greased it , and bought it back to much better shape, so that I could give it away to a cousin. Then there was a time i changed the brakes on my hercules MTB and removed all the free play when engaging. my friends were like WHOA air brakes

too scared to touch my car's mechanicals though, and I'm not that sure i can at all. ICE is another thing !

during my newbie days with my pulsar, i had read up online a lot on TDC/BDC etc and i was like what the hell let me figure out where the TDC/BDC is.So i decided that the best way to do it is put a screw driver inside the sparkplug hole and slowly rotate the kick using my hand.the screwdriver got stuck and result wasnt even funny :(

just a few months before this incident i wanted to clean the bike's sparkplug,so i removed it and cleant it. and tightened it,while tightening i was happily yapping away on the phone suddenly i realise the plug spanner is moving freely. removed the spanner and half a sparkplug came out!! the threading was stuck inside!!

Default Ok this DIY is not BAD or whacky like the earlier.

A few years back a friend insisted me on making an alluminium spoiler for him in a low budget for his esteem,as that time MKraft spoilers were(still) in good form and very expensive.I agreed and told him the total amount of materials and powercoating and nickle plating.He agreed and i started and build it off in a friends factory in 2-days,this is 100% made just by myself,the design was mine and was aproved by my friend,later after the install on the car we removed the 2 x supporting Black bracket over the spoiler wings, hope you all like it cheers:

Ramie
