How-To Greatest Hits

 

With winter project season around the corner, fall feels like a great time to resurrect some of the best how-to's on the old 33. These tips were submitted by CC readers to help their fellow grease monkeys get the most out of the garage shop experience.

We tried to pick the how-to's with the clearest instructions and most revealing photos. If you've got a garage trick you'd like to share, please do so in the appropriate category in the CC forum. If your how-to gets its share of great feedback, we'll move it to the Greatest Hits section.

Thanks to all the ChopCult members who submitted these great how-to's. We'll be hosting another How-To contest next spring, so please take notes and photos of whatever you're doing over the winter. If you can't wait to show us your handiwork, that's okay too. How-to's are everyone's favorite thing around here, so your contributions are appreciated.
