Re: Windshield not defogging properly

After battling the layer of chemical out gassing on the inside of my windshield, I found a product called Stoners "Invisible Glass" It's the only stuff that works for me.
I also get very little fogging upon cold days

Re: Howto: Adding more padding to front seats

I swung by House of Foam in Palo Alto yesterday and bought some scraps of high density firm foam - enough to do probably 10 Bolt seats - for a whopping $5. Today after work I slipped two 1" thick strips in under the existing foam per the awesomely helpful video and it made all the difference in...

Re: Howto: Adding more padding to front seats

I just checked and my cloth seats have the same clips as your leather ones, so adding the foam should be the same

Great job and thank you for doing this!

Re: Capacity fade in EVs

One other variable will be the price of replacement batteries when those in our Bolt do reach "end of life." I expect there will be used replacements available, and also new from GM. With any car, you take a gamble on buying it. Is it a lemon. Should I buy or lease. What's it's resale valu...

Capacity fade in EVs

We bought because we keep our cars until they die of old age. So I expect our Bolt to be with us for very many years.

Re: The seats are a deal killer.

Bought our LT yesterday and spent the afternoon driving it. The passengers seat feels a little wider but the drivers seat doesn't bother me. If I take stuff out of my back pocket it's fine. I weigh 220# and have a 38" waist. My wife was pretty bothered with the drivers seat but liked the passen...
