Cleaning Alloy Wheels With Oven Cleaner

If you own a vehicle with alloy wheels you know how difficult it is to clean the brake dust off the wheels. No amount of soap, water or scrubbing will get it off not even a pressure washer will make much of a dent in it, but as you can see in the photos good old cheap oven cleaner will take it off, without much effort at all.
The vehicle is a 1985 Toyota FXGT and as you can imagine nearly 30 years of crud has built up and it looks quite nasty.

Rat Rod Facelift LED Headlights

So I'm looking at the front of my Hilux and i got to thinking about how much the front look like crap, mostly because of the square headlights. The headlights are so dim anyway that it hardly worth turning them on at night, so might as well fix the both issues at the same time.

After a bit of research, I found that this model Hilux came out with both round and square headlights and the round ones are 7 inches the same size as the headlights in many old vehicles, and the same as a Jeep Wrangler. The cool thing is that there are lots of aftermarket LED headlights for the Jeep and they shouldn't be too difficult to fit.

Rat Rod Rescue

I've been wanting to build a Rat Rod for some time, and have been keeping an eye out for something suitable for a low budget build. Australia doesn't have as many cool old cars as the USA so I would have to settle for something not so cool. So I wanted something with 2 doors chrome bumpers and rear-wheel drive. An old Toyota pickup/ Hilux came up at a junkyard I had to have it.
