Adding Aux to old car radio

Aux + iPod

How to add an Aux port, a 3.5 mm “headphone” jack to your radio.

Aux port

As my van is rather old – as is the radio – but working, I figured out how to add an aux line-in to the radio unit.

All it doesn’t do is play mp3 CD’s, however I can live with that. An mp3 player, or other music player can always be connected. Such as a mobile phone.

On our vacations, and other long trips, our younger family members like to look at Youtube videos – and now we can all co-listen.

Spray paint an EPS diffusor

Color applied : Metallic Gray

Here I tell you about how to spray paint an EPS wall panel. (EPS = extruded polystyrene, Diffusor = breaking, scattering a soundwave)

Starting point

The starting point is a white – uncolored – wall panel, non-colored from production. As EPS doesn’t stand against any form of alcohols, a primer has to be applied. Otherwise, the spray propellant will eat away on the surface. The primer is water based, and propellant other than alcohol based.

At least give a peek into my personal findings of the state of the world.

8 mm projector conversion to LED

From halogen bulb to LED

What if one could increase the lamp life 100-fold, and avoid all that heat – that would burn the film in case the film would stop running…

Story

3 generations were seated to dig into a number of film rolls from my childhood, to travel back in time some 40 years. We got through 20 minutes of film, when the light bulb came to an end.

The projector – the patient

Fujicacolor 10M

Life expectancy is 25 hours, so having lasted since my childhood – that in itself was a lot of hours than the listed expectation.

Energy conservation – Low hanging fruit

Energy conservation – Low hanging fruit

We as human beings do things out of old behavior – habits – sometimes without reflecting over the logic of our behavior. I will present situations around energy saving behavior, which I have philosophized a lot about.

Are you familiar with the term “Low hanging fruit”? It means things that are easily reached, things that are available at closest reach.

I believe habits are formed because of the road of least resistance. In certain ways, things are simply easier. Therefore, there is a resistance to change a habit, a behavior.

And, if to change, there must be an certain experience of pain.
