About this book
Of the five generations of Corvettes, the C3 or "shark" models are among the most popular with do-it-yourselfers. Produced from 1968 all the way up to 1982, most C3 Corvettes haven't reached the collector status (and inflated prices) of earlier models. Far from being the black sheep of the Corvette family though, these attractive cars are plentiful (500,000+ were built) and affordable enough that they can be purchased, maintained, and enjoyed by a large spectrum of car lovers. The vast majority are powered by the popular 350ci small block-perhaps the most modified and successful performance engine ever.

    Works Great. Better than Car Wash Soap

    0 5/5 Aaryanna (So Cal) - See all my reviews This review is from: Meguiar's G14324 Hot Rims Aluminum Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Automotive) I liked this Meguiar's Aluminum Wheel Wash. I thought it worked great. For light amounts of dirt and brake dust, I just sprayed it on and hosed it off. No wiping or buffing required.For really heavy amounts of caked on brake dust and very hard water spots, I'll admit that I had to use a brush. I sprayed a small section, brushed off my wheels, and the grime just melted away. For this level of dirt, my car wash soap alone (even with a brush) wouldn't do the trick. But this Meguiar's Aluminum Wheel Wash certainly did. It even worked fine in hard to reach places, like corners and around the valve stem. Thank heavens.For both levels of grime, both heavy and light, I think this product works well. In either case, there's no wiping or polishing required afterwards. Just be sure to rinse the soap off thoroughly with water. I was very happy. My aluminum wheels looked like they were new. This is a product I highly recommend.

    Poor coverage

    0 2/5 DWPC (N. Arizona) - See all my reviews This review is from: Meguiar's G14324 Hot Rims Aluminum Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Automotive) The foam spray is thick and doesn't spread so 1) you must use far more of it to coat a wheel than if it were a liquid spray, 2) it takes a lot of tedious squeezing to cover a wheel with the foam, and 3) because it's comes out as a stream, it only hits the exposed surface and won't get into the inner wheel or brake caliper behind a spoke easily. Surfaces it stuck to came out pretty clean but I got only 8 wheels cleaned out of a bottle...that's almost a buck per cleaned wheel! Won't buy it again...its easier and much cheaper to brush off the wheel.. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 1, 2014

    Buffing Aluminum

    0 5/5 Dale - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Anytime Tools POLISH BUFFING KIT for Mag Wheels, MANIFOLD, ALUMINUM, Stainless Steel, CHROME (Misc.) I used this kit to polish 4 American Racing rims that were polished but had oxidation marks from my car sitting outside 1 Ohio winter. I first tried a Mothers PowerCone but the foam prevented concentrating the buffing pressure. This buffing kit did the trick. The various shapes and diameters made it possible to reach 99% of the nooks but after the 2nd wheel they started to flatten out preventing getting every nook. I suggest buying 2 kits if you're doing 4 wheels. I bought a second buffing kit from the local Harbor Freight to finish the last 2 wheels. If your rims are not heavily oxidized then the Mothers PowerCone will get the job done. Also, because the metal polish is grease based it's a messy job. Use old clothes and wear rubber gloves or you might end up spending more time cleaning up than polishing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 26, 2010

    These are great pans. I have a number of them in the 14" and 16" sizes and I'am about to pick up some 12's. They make perfect pizzas every time (both frozen and homemade).I've never worked in a pizzaria, so I can't say if these are commercial pans, but I suspect they may be -- they are no-frills (no non-stick coatings, no perforations, etc.); are made of pretty solid aluminum that holds and conveys heat evenly, and come in a bunch of sizes.The mesaurement displayed is the diameter of the pan itself, not the usable area.

    Nice pan, not nice sticker

    I just got this pan in today, and so far haven't used it on pizza. It's a big aluminum pizza pan, fairly flat (even the rim isn't raised too much). The 16" fit just fine in my oven, and I have a 25-30 year old whirlpool electric model. So basically, a 16" should fit in a standard oven rack okay. while most frozen pizzas tend to be about 12 inches, having extra room for homemade, or those odd shapes is definitely handy!What I did not like about tthe pan, however, was this big (about 1" by 2") sticker on the back with impossible glue. I'm assuming they put this on there to cover the *second* sticker underneath that says "MADE IN INDIA" very clearly. Ironically, that sticker came up just fine, but the glue from the first one where it touched the pan directly was obnoxiously impossible to remove without scratching the pan all to hell. I dont mind scratches, as from just the cleaning, I see this pan is gonna scratch like crazy over time anyway, but it is sooo annoying to... 3/5 A.

    For maximum life, clean your aluminum pizza pans with a mild detergent or a detergent made specifically for aluminum products. Over time, strong detergents can cause corrosion and thinning of the metal.
    This pan can be used for individual pizzas or small shared pizzas

    Half Sheet Performs Great

    Be sure to read this whole review because there is a very happy ending!!First the things I like...the pan is nice and heafty and well balanced. It's made in the USA. It heats evenly and does a great job baking cookies, and other dough items....actually everything I've baked on it. Now my big beef with this product! I wouldn't feel comfortable putting any food DIRECTLY on this pan. Every time you wash it...(and I do follow recommended instructions and wash by hand)...everything turns a muddy gray...the sponge, the rinse water, your hands, everything. It's even hard to wash the gray off your hands after your done. I hate that so just won't let food actually cook on the surface. I'll always use parchment paper. Don't trust all that gray metallic colored residue that comes off in the washing process.Update Feb 20, 2012: I sent Nordic Ware an e-mail asking if they could explain the reason for all the gray metal color all over everything when I wash this... 4/5 P.

    Awesome for cookies!

    Every single other cookie/baking sheet I've owned has made that dreaded "bong" sound within minutes of being put in an oven hotter than 300 degrees. It's annoying, it makes the food slide around, and it cannot be good for the pan to warp and unwarp like that. So this time I went looking for professional bakeware. I love Nordic Ware; they make quality stuff without charging you an arm and a leg. These work perfectly. They fit well into my standard home oven (plenty of space around it for proper air circulation), they brown my cookies beautifully on the bottom, and the rolled edge seems pretty sturdy. The only negative thing I will say is the gauge could be a little thicker. I'm used to Nordic Ware products being extremely heavy; and while these are certainly heavier than your average cookie sheet, they are not as heavy as I expected. Batch after batch of holiday cooking doesn't lie, however. Everything has come out perfect, so maybe the gauge isn't such a big deal after all... 5/5 Brianna N.

    Almost magic - and that's the problem

    I bought this product last summer to restore some vintage kitchen canisters made of brushed aluminum. It's almost magic, but in a way that's a problem. I literally spent a day polishing one canister, because I just couldn't ever get to the point where my rags and paper towels weren't continuing to pick up dark oxidized material from the surface. This stuff is so effective, that at some point, you just have to realize that there will always be a microscopically thin layer of oxidation and call it good. The challenge is to leave an even surface without darker or lighter spots. If you start saying "I'm just going to work on that little spot some more", then that little spot will be shiny enough to blind a sniper at two miles, but then it's shinier than everything else, so you you need to work on the other parts for awhile and...well, you see what I mean.I agree that it stinks to high heaven, but I use it in my kitchen anyway.

    Mothers Vs. Simichrome

    My father bought me a tube of Simichrome some years back. The stuff produces a luster in metal so well that I didn't want to change products. But when I looked into getting an 8oz tub of Simichrome (smaller than the 10oz tub of Mothers listed here), I realized that it's more than three times the price. Now I'm trying Mothers after having used Simichrome for years. I know how Simichrome smells, how it acts on metals, how much to use, and how far how much you use can go on the type of metal it is used. Mothers polish is an affective product; it does what they say it does. It puts a very nice luster on metal. However, compared to Simichrome, it doesn't do as well on the relatively harder metals such as the brass of a bullet casing; the bullet casing was a test. Simichrome seems to have finer grits and a more concentrated concoction of chemicals. As a result, it takes less work and less polish to achieve a superior luster.In essence: Simichrome provides a better (more... 4/5 M. Duran "Matthew R.

This review is from: Adcraft PBR-1218 16-Gauge Heavy-Duty Aluminum Bake and Roast Pan with Drop Handle (Misc.) I received this pan yesterday - just in time to cook dinner. I roasted chicken thighs, Italian sausages, red potatoes, red peppers, onions and garlic in olive oil. I set the oven to 450 and started roasting. Wow! Everything was cooked beautifully with amazing carmelization on the bottom of the pan. After I removed everything, I added a small amount of chicken stock to deglaze the pan. That created some beautiful pan juices which we drizzled over everything. Dinner was great, the pan roasted the meats and vegetables evenly and to perfection. The pan did not warp and clean-up was a snap. I'm going to order 2 more since I tend to cook many dinners in one day to freeze. Having several of these roasting pans will definitely make that process a pleasure! I did have reservations about this purchase, but not any more.

    This is what I was looking for to clean my wheels.

    This cleaner works well. It is not magic and simply applying it and rinsing off doesn't really do the trick. Although, I guess if you were crazy and did that daily it would work, but who does that?Personally, I try to wash my car weekly. Some weeks it doesn't happen, but mostly it does. I've found that this spray is easy to apply after having just washed the car and then I use a brush on the wheels before rinsing it all off. The spray goes on easy as a nice foam and all four tires of my mustang seem to take just a little fluid out of the bottle implying a large number of wheel washings per bottle. I have only used it three times so far and the fluid level is nearly at the "looks like it just came from the store" level.As with cleaning anything, keeping a regular routine just makes the cleaning easier and faster. If your wheels are really dirty and you don't clean them frequently then expect to apply this cleaner more than once and to use a little more... 5/5 C. Zimmerman "train nut, shutter bug, compute...

    From an automotive detailer...

    I too am an automotive detailer, I've used this product for quite some time. It used to be called all wheel cleaner but is not called all wheel and tire cleaner.I don't get the negative reviews, this product works great for many applications. Applications as in, wheels, tires, and even plastic wheel wells where gritty dirt accumulates.Wet the wheel down, make sure it's cold, you don't want to apply this or anything for that matter to an extremely hot surface.. Work one wheel at a time, rinse, apply product, let sit a few seconds SCRUB the tire and wheel with a SOFT to MODERATE bristle brush, and rinse away... You shouldn't have a problem and you should see a dramatic improvement.Cons: this stuff isn't cheap and it doesn't last for more than about 3 sets of 4 tires and wheels. Use it only when completely necessary. If you wash your car often DON'T use this all of the time unless your budget is better than mine. Use your car wash detergent or... 4/5 Michael Bremer (MCHENRY, IL, US) - See all my reviews This review is from: Meguiar's Hot Rims Wheel Cleaner. 24 oz.

    The Good Stuff

    0 5/5 Dan Ya ME "Dan" (San Diego, California) - See all my reviews This review is from: Meguiar's Hot Rims Wheel Cleaner. 24 oz. (Automotive) This Stuff really works when you use it right. Something that should be mentioned is that you may(and more likely than not)need to "agitate with a brush." It also cleans your tires a lot better than I expected. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 30, 2006

    There is nothing this cloth can't clean!

    0 5/5 Megan "Surrogate Mommy" (Panama City, FL) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Miracle Cloth All Purpose Metal Cleaning Towel (Misc.) LOVE IT!! It took all the little wear and tear scratches off my wedding ring in just a few swipes! The ring looks brand new again. That, to me, is enough to sell me on the product. However, I was so excited, I used it on everything in the house I could find - including some 20+ year old tarnished silver baby spoons, it worked perfectly! The cloth can really clean EVERYTHING. I used it on an old burn mark on my MIL's sink from a cig that was left too long and it came right off! Takes stains off the tile that no other cleaner could with ease. I would recommend this product again and again! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 16, 2011

    Good shine, weird product.

    This is a weird product. It comes in a double plastic bag. It's a sheet of heavy flannel-like fabric measuring 8-1/4" X 5-3/4". It's saturated (not dripping, just moist) with oil and some kind of unidentified solvent or metal polish. You can smell the tarnish-removing solvent in addition to the coconut oil. Something I don't like is that I "taste" the solvent for a long time after using it. I'm not sure why that happens, but since it's volatile, it's in the air and gets on my tongue.I used it on the plastic on my microwave control panel which had become scratched from being cleaned by the rough side of a sponge. It took the micro-scratches out, but it also dulled the plastic surface. A little shining with high-gloss Pledge remedied that pretty well.I used it on several brushed stainless steel pieces that had gotten stained. The instant I touched the stains, they disappeared and the cloth came up very black like when you polish silver. It leaves a beautiful... 3/5 L.

    Worked well cleaning tarnished coins, but use gloves

    0 4/5 Rotoscoped - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Miracle Cloth All Purpose Metal Cleaning Towel (Misc.) I used this to clean and polish tarnished coins. The cloth made a copper penny shine like it was new. I was amazed at how much tarnish came off of one penny - it turned most of one side of the cloth black. Other clad coins polished well.I cleaned the coins with my bare hands and the very strong coconut smell would not wash off my hands until I used cleaned them with ajax. So I recommend using gloves when working with the cloth. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 5, 2013
