Sette inn en dør og lage en vegg

Tenkte jeg skulle sette inn en dør for to grunner:

  1. Redusere støy
  2. Enklere å holde stuen varm

For å få dette realisert så måtte jeg sette inn en dør og lage en vegg over døren. Det var ikke lett. Utgangspunktet så slik ut:

Først ut er å skaffe seg døren. Det var lett. Jeg kjøpte en massiv tredør med støydempende karm.

Andre steg var å feste karmen. Det var et rent mareritt fordi den ene veggen var ikke rett og jeg hadde ikke et ordentlig vater. Ble kjempesur og Pappa måtte komme å hjelpe meg. Jeg trodde det skulle være lettest å gjøre dette, men å feste karmen var utfordrende.

Neste steg var å lage en ramme øverst og starte på veggen. Etter rammen var på plass dyttet jeg isolasjon inn mellom karmen og veggen for å få det helt tett.

Siste steg var å sette på gipsplater og skru det fast. Her passet jeg på å knekke gipsplatene riktig og måle nøyaktig når jeg festet dem. Brukte også riktige skruer som jeg ikke skrudde for hardt fast. Var bare uheldig en gang faktisk på skruene og ødela platen kun på et sted. Flaks

Nå gjenstår det bare sparkling og maling. Gruer meg sykt til å sparkle.

Uniggardin solskjerming til god pris

www.uniggardin.no leverer solskjerming til en meget god pris basert på mål du selv tar. Jeg har brukt det nå flere steder i huset og har fått god erfaring med måling og produktene. Her er de forksjellige typene og hva du må tenke på når du måler

  1. Festingen. Bruk denne festeguiden eller så får du problemer med å føre gardinen helt ned

    Her er det feil festet av meg og gardinen går nå ikke helt opp til rammen.

  2. Trådene, velger du duette så ser du ikke trådene. velger du vanlig plisse så ser du trådene. Det skinner også lys igjennom.
  3. Mål nøyaktig. Og husk at du kan kjøpe en for å teste først hvis du har flere like vinduer.
  4. Skal du ha gardinen på et vindu som slår ut? Husk å velg riktig feste. Høyre vindu slår ut og har en ståltråd som hindrer at gardinen får en bue på seg når jeg åpner vinduet.

  5. Fest gardinen i viduet så sparer du plass i selve rammen
  6. Det er stor forskjell på stoffene, høyere pris gir bedre kvalitet på stoffet
  7. Velg mer mørklegging en du tror du trenger. Det er lettere å åpne gardinen hvis det er for lyst enn å ha en gardin som slipper igjennom for mye lys.

Get black tires with Rubberspray

Black looks really good. I bought 4 cans of Rubberspray and decided to paint my tires black. Bear in mind that this does not protect the rim and it can get scratched off so be careful and do not use a high pressure washer on the tires. 20171015_144740

The application part is really easy and anyone can do it. I know nothing and managed to get a decent result.

Here are my pro tips:

REMEMBER TO WEAR A MASK

  1. Clean your tires

    20171015_144728

  2. Use the whole Can at once, do not stop spraying until the can is empty. First layer will look something like this. Just spray and keep the wheels close so you can leap to each tire.

    20171015_145153

2. Keep your cans warm and stop if there is little gas left or else you can get drops. 20171015_152132

Don’t worry about the drops, you don’t see them later.

3. Minimum 4 layers. 4-6 is recommended.

 

End result is cool.

Wash with care!

 

Tesla Model X pedals replacement

You may replace the break and accelerator pedal plus the foot rest. The process is really simple.

20171009_192206

The break pedal, simply remove the old rubber pedal

20171009_192529

On the accelerator pedal you just slide the new pedal over the old pedal

20171009_192220

Be ready to fumble for 2-3 minutes while you jerk the rubber pedal on. Once it is fixed it stays and looks good.

Easy and nice modification.

Tesla Model X Topfit Dashcam

I decided to get a Dashcam to monitor the traffic situation in front of the car. Some things to note about this dashcam:

  1. It does not operate when the car is parked
  2. It fits perfectly into the car and does not require any extra wire-work
  3. The control app is simple.

This is probably the cheapest and nicest way to get a camera into your car if you do not require rear view capture or parking capture.

It comes in a really nice box

topfit dashcam box

Instruction manual in English with a mounting manual. The English is okay enough.

It is a bit bulky but looks okay. It has a proximity sensor that takes a picture if you swipe your hand under the camera. It also has a motion sensor that locks pictures and movies from being deleted i case of a crash. It has a microphone and a small speaker. It can capture audio from the cabin.

 

The camera fits nicely into place after you remove the old plastic cover in your TMX

The whole process is super easy and it looks good afterward.

There are two things that I would mention as a negative aspect.

  1. The controller app is really simple and does not offer a lot of functionality. It does not always show the content of the camera properly so you might have to restart or click on the app several times.
  2. There is a voice coming every time the camera initiates, “DVR RECORDING STARTED” this is super annoying and I messaged the seller. He gave me a recipe for fixing it but it require you to update the firmware on the camera. Extra work.

that aside, I this is a good buy.

Paint roller/runner pro, what the ads don’t tell you

I was browsing Facebook and saw this ad for a cool no-spill, no-drip and easy to use paint brush. Of course I had to order it.

Here are some pro’s and con’s using the paint roller on a even painted surface:

It does not drip or spill when you are not using it or just holding it, great. Just fill it up and it holds all the paint.

 

Just be aware that it does require a great deal of paint in order to get soaked and apply the paint evenly. Well, evenly is a stretch the pain is not applied evenly because of the joint where the paint roller cloth is stitched together. Look at this:

You can clearly see the point of the roller where the seam is on the cloth. It also takes several rolls before the roller is soaked and even after it is soaked it does not apply perfectly and tend to slide rather than roll.

After applying several strokes it gets more even. Be prepared to have a lot of paint as the roller soaks a lot.

20171001_110052

And it DOES SPILL. Observe the small paint droplets that come after rolling up and down. So it is not spill free.

My opinion: If I had a lot of paint and a large surface plus the roller had been a bit better quality with seamless stitching this would be a great tool. The only real problem is the stitching which can create uneven marks on the wall. It also takes a bit more time to clean after use.

I do recommend using a better quality roller with no stitching if you can find one.

Eve sleep linnen sheets

Wow, what cool sheets. Color and everything.

20170922_172739

I got this nice package with the linnen sheet as a replacement for the cotton sheets that ripped during wash. I have not yet washed these sheets but they look way more durable. Both the linnen and cotton sheet comes in a really nice box.

The seam is much tighter together making the edge stronger

20170922_172751

the buttons have two loops and make them twice as strong and durable.

20170922_172808

The button and hole are perfectly sized this time making it really fast and easy to close the sheets.

20170922_172822

The opening has extra stitching back and forth making it more rip proof.

20170922_172845

These sheets are in every respect better than the cotton counterpart reviewed here. However I do prefer the feel of cotton rather than the rough feel of linnen. The linnen fabric also make the sheets feel warmer. Perfect for a winter comforter but could feel warm during summer. It is turning fall here now so I am a bit in between on the comfort zone.

Eve sleep sheets replacement mixups

Earlier I bought a set of sheets from Eve sleep. The quality was so bad that the sheets ripped in the first wash, check out the review here.

They were going to give me a replacement. Or so they said.

That was 12th of July. I just got my sheets last week end of September.

bed linen order

Now, please note that they did not reimburse the sheets. They just issued a new type of linnen sheets. These are completly different. While the orginal sheets are smooth to the touch, these are warmer and rougher. Cotton vs Linnen.

 

I did not hear back from them in a Month.

Month later, it is finally on the way.

The linnen sheets are better quality but they are also way different feel. I actually prefer cotton. Oh well…

EVE Sleep, the return, the nightmare

So this whole mattress thing was just a utter nightmare. I got Inkasso claims and UPS held me personally responsible for the lack proper paperwork. Some people might have just paid extra to make it go away.

So, what happened?

ups reply to tax

But Eve sleep do charge VAT (MOMS), so is this my problem. Short answer is: YES, YOU ARE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE that Eve fills out the correct forms and pay.

moms på eve sleep

As Eve Sleep did not have their papers in order with UPS during my 100 day trial, where I was supposed to enjoy the bed, extra bills started to arrive. Keep in mind that everything is paid for during orginal purchase “with VAT” but UPS wants ME to fix this and holds me personally responsible for EVE sleep’s lack of filling out forms.

angry at ups and eve

Now Kudos to Eve Sleep customer support team. Really amazing people and they helped me. Without them I would have a huge problem getting this to go away since I am personally responsible for paying tax

Eve sleep wants to fix it

Wonder if more Norwegians have had this Issue? Please note that EVE paid for this directly to UPS and they dropped their claim. But it took weeks of back and forth mailings.

Finally Bring arrived to pick up the mattress, they came almost two weeks later that our agreed pickup date, but at least they came at all.

eve sleep return form Bring

I got the refund to my account and everything with the mattress has been settled. I did not have to keep the box or any plastics, they just took the mattress and left.

It was not hassle free for me and the mattress was not any good for my back. I ended up buying a Jensen Majestic at a way higher price but also way softer and I pick it up myself so NO MORE UPS.
