Today’s #fanfriday is all of you that supported me this year! I am so fortunate to have met some great people along the way and it is still crazy to me that I’m entering my fifth year of being able to be my own boss, see cool cars, and help people out.

On top of it, I’m still blown away that I was able to design and sell a product, and then start a second batch! I can’t thank you all enough and as always I’m looking forward to the future!

I wish you all a very merry Christmas. Enjoy your tome with those you love.

Here’s a pro tip: don’t smoke in your vehicle. Sounds simple but the unseen damage it causes is almost impossible to fix.

In the case of this newly acquired Tucson, I was able to scrub every surface to neutralize and clean and thankfully the smell has gone away (not just covered up). It is a very long process and one that cannot even be guaranteed. I was also able to remove a pretty deep stain on the rear seat.

For those that placed an order for a second batch of lift kits, please be patient. The machine shop is dragging their feet (again) with them and they will not be completed this week, meaning you won't receive them in time for Christmas. I am sorry for this and sadly out of my control.

The rear pieces are are complete and the front pieces are on their way to be anodized.

I will keep you all updated as I know more. Thank you for your understanding.

Accidents happen but thankfully they aren’t always permanent. I installed OEM European halogen tail lamps on Jeff’s Alltrack and when a tree decided to hit him, I was able to order him a replacement OEM European tail lamp. Got it all swapped over for him today and now he can pass inspection. Thanks Jeff!

Before you read this, know that I have a lot of thought to whether I should post this or move on. I’ve always stood up to people who lie and I decided that by not saying something, I was going against my values.

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of owning a business? There’s a lot but something you don’t usually find out about is when another business decides to tell their customers things about me.

deAutoLED is a business that has done well for themselves in the VW community with LED solutions. However, some of what they post has been factually incorrect over the years and when I was active on VW Vortex, I used to call them out on their statements. They have been known to pay people for reviews and now that I have left them alone for almost two years, they decided to bring my business into a vendetta they have against me.

Why is this relevant? I recently shared that it is frustrating to spend a lot of my time to educate and help inform people (potential customers) about my lift kit, just to see them go and purchase from businesses that have less/no customer service. Essentially just helping out someone else that doesn’t care as much as I do. What I always wonder is who is “bribing” people to plug their product in order to hurt someone else.

Becoming a business owner has taught me a lot and one thing that doesn’t go far is talking sh*t. Informing people with facts and comparisons is completely different than talking sh*t and is what try my hardest to practice.

Do what you want with this screen grab. That’s on you. I don’t care if deAutoLED continues to succeed or not. What I care about is my business and what they describe as me being a nightmare, was really just me calling them a liar for posting false information.

Stay classy because others won’t.

What do I love more than an A5 Sportback and return clients? Having clients that take care of their cars! Julia wanted a yearly Basic Detail done but once I saw that the condition of the paint wasn’t in need of a polish, I let her know. I did however need to remove some road line paint and did a vacuum and window cleaning. All good for another year. Thanks Julia!

Sometimes the job isn’t perfection. Sometimes the job is. Sometimes the job is just making it look nice enough for the next person. A Basic Detail is that package, with a one step polish and seal that’ll remove most major defects and leave behind some nice shiny paint. Simple as that.

The Bearded Detailer - Mk7 Golf Sportwagen/Alltrack Towing Module (J345) Retrofit

A while ago I finished up retrofitting the OEM trailer module into the Alltrack and I was going to assemble these and sell them but decided that it was better to put the information together as a DIY for others to tackle for themselves.

https://www.thebeardeddetailer.com/blog/2019/12/3/mk7-towing-module-j345-retrofit

This took me the better part of the day to assemble into a blog post, let alone the research prior to my assembly. I hope this benefits those that tow.

There are a lot of Mk7 Golf Variant owners that own a trailer of some sort and tow it frequently. I am one of these owners, having a fishing boat and a utility trailer, and like many, I had ordered a piggy back style harness to provide power to the trailer lights. Many people run harnesses like this

I’ve had my stock NAR LED tail lamps from my car sitting around collecting dust and I’m sure someone else would love a set of discounted lights. There is a set of four, three will be used and one will be brand new. These can be retrofit to halogen cars and will need adapters and coding that can be provided.

Brand new the assemblies are $806 so I will let these go for $575 and if you need the adapters, just add $140.

If you need them shipped, obviously shipping will need to be paid for and if you’re in PA, you know that tax gets collected.

This post has been a long time in the making. One year ago, Chloe was an eight year old that had been transferred to a different school for behavioral and emotional support, was on two medications, and was having a hard time academically. Her ADHD and DMDD were truly in control. We set out to help her in any way we could.

We first made some changes in her diet. We eliminated processed sugars, dyes, high fructose corn syrup, and gluten. These were all items that we had witnessed be triggers for her physical and emotional behavior. I know it’s easy to say, “way to take the fun out of being a kid” but if you saw what we saw, there was no fun. It was beyond exhausting and frustrating. We went further with this by explaining nutrition to her; it’s one thing to take something away and it’s another to educate and provide tools for the future.

Next we started incorporating CBD oil from UnCanna twice a day. Before anyone gets heated, it was THC free and it took us three tries to find a company that was liked and saw results from. Within a short time we were able to remove one medication while continuing the CBD.

The final piece of the puzzle was taking her for specialized chiropractic scans and adjustments at Life Potential Chiropractic. This started with three trips a week to them, which is 2.5 hours round trip. Every 12th visit, scans were done to monitor her progress in heart rate recovery, nervous system, and organ thermal response.

Today we have a nine year old that has successfully transitioned back to her original school, started fourth grade in a new school, visits the chiropractor once every other week, and takes no medication or CBD. We still have a limited diet and the rest of the family also follows it. We still enjoy treats once in a while as an exception, not the rule.

Things aren’t perfect and they may never be. If we just sat back and made no changes, what would that say about us? I’ll do pretty much anything for my daughters and I’m so happy that we aren’t on damage control anymore. We can now focus on the pre-teen garbage that will be coming soon. Don’t let anyone tell you there aren’t any options left. There always is.

Veterans Day is an odd day for most veterans. It’s a day where people specifically want to single you out and say thank you, yet most veterans feel uncomfortable with that attention. Personally, I’m not a fan of people coming to me and saying thank you but I will gladly accept it when compared to the alternative.

What I care more about is how we are shaping the future. I didn’t have an assembly on Veterans Day when I was in school. When I was asked to speak at a high school four years ago, I was happy to learn that schools are now making time specifically to the education of kids on veterans. This is how I want to be thanked.

Putting a face to a word and listening to stories. It doesn’t matter if it’s from the Global War on Terrorism, Korea, or WW1, I’d the stories do not continue to be told, those involved with those stories also cease to exist. These stories are about our siblings, parents, grandparents, and many others just like them. Our neighbors, coworkers, and store owners.

I was in the Army. It was a job I chose to do. I wasn’t anything special and I certainly don’t deserve any praise for it. There were some nuggets of value that I took from my enlistment that I think were exclusive to military service and that is what I choose to pass on to my kids and to anyone who will listen.

What made me tear up this year is seeing the smiles on my daughters’ faces at their schools this year and saying how proud they are of me. At home I’m just dad, I don’t think they’ve ever seen me in uniform (in person), and we don’t talk a lot about my enlistment unless it is relevant but I think that if they can display the values I’ve tried to share with them, then mission accomplished.

Loyalty
Duty
Respect
Selfless Service
Honor
Integrity
Personal Courage

Happy Veterans Day to all that have serve and continue to service. For those that need someone to talk to, my phone is always on and ready. For those that want to listen, all you have to do is ask. God bless the USA.

I received this in the mail yesterday from Google and while I don’t play the veteran card often (with the exception of with friends), I thought this was a nice gesture.

Being a veteran, I also give any current and former military, law enforcement, and first responder an 18% discount off of anything I offer. This is my way of saying thank you for putting the love of country and others first.

Any former military knows how cheesy challenge coins can be but at the same time, there’s something about them. I have every one that has been given to me and this one will get added to that collection.

Health stuff you can ignore.

Throughout my intermittent fasting, I’ve been weighing myself daily but not recording it. For October I decided to keep track and there were only two days I didn’t because of traveling. I also decided to do daily sit-ups and pushups. I lost 4.3 lbs this month and man there were a lot of treats mixed in there.

I’m fine with where I’m at right now. I’m only about five pounds heavier than where I was before deployment, I sleep about eight hours every night, and my energy has been great. I still eat meat, I still have beer, and I still have cake. I still enjoy those moments when they arrive.

You can actually see those treats on the graph. October 6th was the day after pizza and donuts in CT. October 18th was a lot of beer and staying up late with Sam. October 27 was the day after pizza and cake.

The point here is there is no such thing as cheat food. There’s food with consequences. That’s all. Intermittent fasting has been a fantastic way for me to regulate how I feel and I see myself doing this for a long as I can. It’s so easy now.

I officially started this at the end of February at 228 lbs but I’m very confident I was heavier prior to that. Forty pounds in eight months without changing what I eat or going to a gym. Why wouldn’t you try it?!
