New in bag…. Wrapping paper.  I had to test it before I am going to sell it though.

Is there such a thing as a to bright Coleman timer?  No way!  Is there such a thing as a to bright Dixmor LED 6S?  You may think so…. But in RL it is really nice.

UPDATE 4/18/2016: SOLD…. if you do not have one of these timers you should purchase one. They are very nice.

Why I LOVE Amazon.com! :)

These are actually really great cheap vinyl gloves…. Usually vinyl gloves are pure crap.  (BTW I was trying to purchase XL gloves.  I also purchase some black latex gloves…. But they have gotten worse I believe?)  LINK
There are 2 things I dislike about Amazon.com…. How the prices fluctuates and how you can not just shop with Amazon easily.  (You actually can but it is a pain.)

Ginsan Meter Door Opening Sizes…. Gin-San Dixmor Drop in Replacements?

The question is…. Does a Dixmor LED 7 timer fit in the same location as a Gin-San GS-400 timer or the GinSan GS-407 timer?  I did not know the answer so I contacted the experts at Dixmor.

Dixmor said the Gin-San GS407 timer has a 2″ x 9″ display so basically there is no way it would fit.

ANSWER:  The Dixmor LED 7 timer will NOT fix where a GinSan GS-407 timer is.

The GinSan GS400 has the same height as the Dixmor LED 7 timer but the GS400 is 1″ wider.  Which I assume would allow for a drop in replacement?  But Dixmor’s official statement is they do not think the LED7 would replace either timer.

I hate to contradict the experts at Dixmor…. but today I measured the left and right meter door openings.  Each door opening was the same at 2 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ (I did not have my caliper so it is just close.  🙂 )  So the only variable is the mounting studs…. which are probably close or close enough?  (You could widen the holes if you had to.)  But…. Because both meter doors (above) are from GinSan.  I could also go so far as to assume that the one on the right definitely has the same mounting screws…. but I can not measure the door on the left to verify.  Why would Ginsan create a meter door which their own timer (GS400) would not fit?  But you can look at my pictures and use the 1″ measurement Dixmor said the timers were different in size…. but someone could assume they would be a drop in replacement?  Probably?  Maybe?  More than likely?  LOL  🙂  (Of course you would need a wire harness for the Dixmor timer…. but for some reason GinSan does not use wire harnesses?)

So if anyone knows for a fact if a Dixmor LED 7 is a drop in replacement for the GS400 timer let me know.  Also let the fine guys at Dixmor know.  It might help them out.  🙂

Just an aside…. the opening for the above meter door is 3 1/4″ x 1″ (again I would not start production on your timer add on…. this was done on a piece of paper and measure with a ruler later.  No caliper…. just an idea of the opening size. 🙂 )  This door is also the meter door for a Gin-San GS-31 timer…. which is the timer pictured next to it.

UPDATE 20160318: When emailing this guy back…. I believe I figured out why Dixmor says their timers may not be a direct replacement? Dixmor has no idea how you have your bay setup. You may have to rewire and probably bypass another timer to get a Dixnor LED 3 or LED 7 timer to work. Also you would have to purchase a harness for the Dixmor timer.

But harnesses are good…. and wire nuts do not count as a harness. LOL 🙂

My Official 2015 Car Wash Product of the Year!

2016-02-19_06-52-012016-02-19_06-52-092016-02-11_07-35-21

The 2015 cwguy.com product of the year is the Klein Tools 2100-9 stainless steel scissors Sure you can use a knife…. But now I feel stupid for not having scissors for over 10 years in my bag…. so no need to state your point.  

The first time I pulled these Klein ss scissors out of my tool bag and used them….  I felt like kissing them.  NOTHING….. let me say this again…. Nothing cuts something like a good pair of scissors.  Also Wow is it easy to cut with scissors….. Instead of a knife.  I know I sound like a retard.  🙂  Purchase the ss ones…. They are also a nice size.

So I lost my flashlight for the 100x time.

I had a headlamp last time…. which I lost.  The light before that was a headlamp…. which I broke.  So I was at a welding gas place and they had this magnet led light (looked like this one).  It was really nice…. I guess?  Heavy…. really bright and the magnet was super strong.  I did not purchase it…. but ever since I have been wanting to purchase a magnet multi-function light.  So I purchased the Nebo 250 Slyde Led Flashlight.  Seems really nice quality…. and heavy.  So I have been shining the light in my eyes and everything.  Seems very bright and I was thinking after I purchase this magnet light…. wait for it…. everything at my car wash is STAINLESS STEEL!  GREAT!  LOL 🙂  Whoops!  I actually think the light will still be very useful though.  The other light I purchased was a ThorFire…. really nice also was on sale for $13 now $23.  But it is also super nice is seems….  has 4 modes fancy.

So if this Nebo light is really a 250 lumens light…. I think half the lumens might be better?  But I have not used the light yet.  It is bright.

Amazon was running a special on this item and I got one in the mail yesterday…. I have not used it yet…. Well because I wanted to touch it first.  🙂  It has 4.5 stars with 550 reviews…. this is really a nice quality product.  I am going to purchase another one today.  Just thought I would share because I was actually impressed.  LOL 🙂  They cost $8.66 now…. I did pay $6.14 the other day. But it does not matter now. 🙂

The manufacturer also has Spanish on the back. Which I actually do not have a problem with. I have a problem with all Spanish labeling…. like I saw at Home Depot before. Also I saw a banner on the front of a USPS that was written in all Spanish…. which since it was a United States Government facility…. it seems inappropriate?  BTW…. I think these items should have the English language on them?  🙂

UPDATE: 20151220 Amazon lowered the price again. They are $7.02…. You might need to use the code ktek9? But it was automatic for me? So who knows. 🙂
