  • Tips to Clean Your Car like a Pro

    Follow these 10 awesome Tips to Clean Your Car like a Pro to get your car in show and shine condition this summer #MidasLiquids Regardless of your car and budget, Randburg Midas have the perfect car cleaning and detailing products for you. Pop in and let us help you! 1 It’s all about beauty Think of the surface of your car as you would your face, it needs to be properly taken care of in order to have a healthy glow. Today, it’s easier than ever to do that yourself: Techniques developed by professional detailers have trickled down to passionate car enthusiasts. Auto paint has been improved from the days of lacquer covered with carnauba paste wax, and now it’s more durable and shines longer than ever. If you’re considering some DIY detailing, proceed with caution. The pro detailers who provided us with these tips are practiced with rotating buffers that clean and resurface paint with wool or charcoal-coated foam pads, and they warn that such machines are not for an amateur Saturday-morning project. But the following 10 steps will help your home detailing go smoothly. The order for detailing tasks, the pros tell us, is important, and begins with the unpainted surfaces of your car. NOTE: When to See a Pro When your paint has a scratch that goes down to the metal, the only way to fix it is by sanding and filling the scratch with paint using a tiny pinstriping brush. Pros can blend this type of fix with surrounding paint, but that takes experience. To find a pro, check your local car clubs and shows; usually a few names will surface. The detailer should interview you about your expectations, and then suggest how to exceed them. 2 Start with Compressed Air and Stiff Scrub Brushes on Your Carpets The first step, is to fire up the air compressor and blow dirt from the nooks and crannies of your car’s floor onto the middle of the carpet, where you can easily vacuum it up. Stiff brushes also loosen dirt from the carpets and upholstery. If you’ve got leather seats, use a conditioner with aloe or similar. 3 Duct Clean to Keep that New-Car Smell Compressed air from a small, portable compressor is an easy way to blow dust and dirt out of heating and air-conditioning ductwork. The trick is to aim the high-pressure air at the walls of the ducts behind…

  • 12 Tools every guy should own

    There is a tool for every job! Here are the top 12 Tools every Guy should own #Powertools There’s a big world (OK, your home) that needs fixing, and these 12 tools are just what you need to do the job. Regardless of what you need you can be sure to get it at Randburg Midas! Claw Hammer A good, solid hammer can be used for driving nails into wood as well as small demolition jobs. My old man would use his hammer for damn near everything, much to the chagrin of my mother. Go for the classic 500g hammer. It’s heavy enough for most basic home repair needs, but light enough for you to carry around without it being a nuisance. While your grandpa probably used a hammer with a wooden handle, you shouldn’t. Wood handles break easily. Go with something that has a long-lasting synthetic handle. Also, when picking out a hammer, you want one that has a good balance in your hand and isn’t head heavy. It’s a lot like picking out a golf club or a baseball bat. So go to the hardware store and try a few out before making your selection. Flathead Screwdriver A flathead screwdriver has a single blade that fits into the single slot of a flathead screw. Flathead screws have been around for a l o n g time, so it’s likely your great-great grandpa had a few flathead screwdrivers in his tool chest. While the Phillips screw has quickly taken the place of flathead screws in most projects, it’s still a good idea to have a few flathead drivers in your tool arsenal. In addition to driving in screws, flatheads can also be improvised for different uses like light prying, scrapping, and nudging. Quick tip: make sure the electricity is turned off BEFORE you start sticking a screwdriver in a light socket to pry out a broken bulb. Trust me. Phillips Screwdriver Invented by Henry F. Phillips in 1936, the Phillips head screw has quickly replaced the flathead screw in most projects. A Phillips head screwdriver has a four-star point at the end that fits into the corresponding screw’s shallow, cross-shaped depression. This design allows a user to apply more torque than is possible with a flathead screwdriver. The depression forces the blades of the Phillips screwdriver to slip out before any damaging over-torqueing can occur. As mentioned above, Phillips…

  • Best brake fluid available from Randburg Midas

    Whenever riding a superbike, you want to know that you have reliable breaking power when you need it. Use the best brake fluid which is available from Randburg Midas! #SmokeBrake Regardless of how good your brake pads and disks are, without the correct high performance brake fluid you might as well not have breaks… What does brake fluid do? Heat generated under braking, especially under heavier breaking or prolonged breaking, may affect the brake fluid which can only work if it is liquid and not so hot that it has become vapor. Therefore the boiling point that your brake fluid can achieve is critical to efficient braking as temperatures above the boiling point form vapor bubbles in the system, potentially resulting in brake failure. In addition, the brake fluid serves as a lubricant of all movable parts and prevents corrosion. It has to be compatible with rubber seals and hoses thus allowing braking systems to achieve long service and optimal performance That is why it is highly recommended to use Motul brake fluid. 100% synthetic brake fluid on polyglycol basis for all types of hydraulic actuated brake and clutch systems in accordance with DOT 5.1, DOT 4 and DOT 3 manufacturers recommendations. Specially designed for anti-locking brake system (ABS). Dry boiling point of 522°F (272°C)   For more information on our impressive range of car care products and more, please contact us www.midasrandburg.co.za | (011) 789-4411 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg.
