      Want a free AveoForum decal? Write a DIY!

      Darin and I have been talking about this for a little bit. We love all the info we have here. However, we have a lot of people asking questions just about every day here, which isn't bad. But, its always great when we say "oh, you want to do _______? Check this thread out" and give them a link that walks them through how to do something. So, we're looking to have more people write up some DIY articles on how to do stuff like:

      - Oil change
      - Brake pad/shoe replacement
      - DIY alignment
      - How to track your gas mileage
      - Audio upgrades
      - Nearly any modification (ex: plasti-dipping something)
      - How to troubleshoot and/or fix a common Aveo issue

      I think some of these are even written already, but you get the idea.

      In exchange for sharing this useful info, we'd like to reward you with a free AveoForum decal! When you write one up just private message me with the link to the thread and I'll get your info to send you a decal.

      Now, we aren't going to give decals out for crazy simple stuff like 'how to refill windshield washer fluid' or something silly like that.

      I've also been going through the How-To forum and have been doing some cleaning as there was a lot of other stuff in there. Its not done yet, but it will get cleaned up so it is easier to find stuff.

      For those who have recently written something up, we're making this retroactive for the past month and a half. So if you've posted any DIY since March 1st go ahead and PM me and we'll get you a decal.

      Anyway, what do you guys think? Good idea?

      I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this. Many of the DIY articles do make it to the home page though.

      Rear Brakes are done! What an awesome idea! I am also planning to do a review/how to bleed your brakes on an automatic brake bleeder.
      Please do not power off, firmware update pending.....
