    Exclamation Read Before Posting! Proper use of the "How-To" Sub Forum

    What exactly is the "How-To" sub-forum?

    The How-To section is for users to post write ups detailing how a procedure is performed. This can be normal maintenance, an aftermarket modification, or something totally original. Easily misinterpreted by new users, It is not intended for "how do I" threads. These type of threads are better suited for a sub-forum of the appropriate category (Audio, engine etc). Often a topic has been covered (probably in detail) already, so a search may yield more thorough results.

    That being said, in an effort to preserve very useful, and very well written "How-To's" that are too often being bumped further and further back, miscellaneous threads and other non "How-To" threads in this sub forum will be moved appropriately or deleted.

    Example:
    Impress your non cooking bros!
    A basic way to fry any fish
    I've used Tilapia because it is cheap ($5 for 2lbs ~8-10 fillets, cheaper than ground beef..)

    What's needed:
    12" skillet, or any pan wide enough for your catch, at least 2" deep.
    Milk (or egg)
    Oil (Canola/Vegetable)
    Fish (Tilapia used here)
    Fish batter (or flour + seasoning)


    Step 1

    Using two separate containers, place enough milk (or 1-2 eggs) to wet both sides of the fish, and enough batter to coat both sides of the fish after wetting with milk. Leave the fish in the milk for now (they will be coated just prior to adding to oil)


    Step 2
    Add enough oil to the pan to cover the fish at least 2/3 (you can deep fry but that's a waste of oil imo)Heat the skillet on medium high (more towards medium, fish cooks quickly and you don't want to burn the batter. If you are a noob at frying, you can test the oil for readiness by flicking water off your finger an seeing if it pops.



    Step 3
    Once the oil is ready, coat the wet fish on both sides with the batter, and promptly add them to the oil. The oil should be shallow enough to add them by hand so you don't risk breaking the fish by using tongs or similar, rubbing the coating or splattering grease.


    Step 4
    Fry for about 3-5 minutes on each side. Larger fillets may need more time. Less cooking time will give you a flakier fish, longer for a tougher cut.


    Step 5
    As with most fried foods, place them on a paper towel to drain.


    Step 6
    Add some cheap sides (fried and coleslaw a good bet) and you have yourself a cheap lunch or dinner that stretched your $$$. Louisiana style hot sauce is good on it. I reheated sides I had been eating with a new meat for the last 2 days which probably cost me a total of $6 for all 3 meals. Can McDonalds beat that? haha

    Center console latch DIY info

    If you have made it through all the fish frying, here is a link to RichieRescue's DIY for repairing the latch for the 2016 center console, which often breaks.

    The Link

    I made a pdf version of his very helpful DIY, mostly so the pictures could be easily seen in context:
