Automobile Internship – Halfway Stage

As you probably realized, I have stopped providing daily updates of my internship due to the repetitive nature of my work. However, I have almost reached the half way stage in the internship and I feel compelled to write another post about it.

By now, I have completed 4 out of the five levels of training courses. Jishar has been an excellent teacher and I feel much more confident around cars, since I can unhesistatingly work on most models now.

On the repairs side, I have repaired innumerable cars since my last post. I have worked on nearly every Peugeot car on the market and some notable non Peugeot models such as the Lexus ES300, the Nissan Patrol, the Chevrolet Tahoe, the BMW 750Li, the Audi A7 and the Porsche Cayman S. The repair work has been the same as before, replacing engine parts and repairing parts such as the injection system, the fuel pump and so on.

The internship has been thoroughly enjoyable and I enthusiastically look forward to the second half. It has helped drastically improve my skills with automobiles and I am sure that this will help me with various automobile projects in college.

I leave you now, with a few pictures from the past few days. Ciao!

My First Photowalk!

I recently went on a photowalk through Dubai, with my uncle, shooting with his Canon 1000D. It was my first experience with a DSLR and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Here’s an unedited shot taken near the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.

Picture specifications – 34 mm, f/18, 13 seconds exposure time, ISO 100.

Do critique the shot; I will graciously accept any comments and suggestions from you.

Automobile Internship – 04/16/2013

Today, was a fun day at work!

In the morning, I underwent training in air intake systems with my trainer, Jishar. He explained the theoretical aspects of the topic first, then showed me an entire air intake system that was detached from a car and kept in the back office. About a hour and a half of training later, I went to the workshop.

The first car on the agenda was a beautiful white BMW 750Li. It required new spark plugs and a routine oil change. I thoroughly enjoyed working on a car like this, after nearly two weeks of working on Peugeots. Sixen and I completed this job my lunchtime and were well on schedule for a few more tasks.

After lunch, I returned to work on a Peugeot 308. It was a rather simple job requiring a change in the variable solenoid of the car. Soon, I completed it and headed to the control room.

There, I found the job order card for a Peugeot RCZ sports car and quickly snapped it up. The recent rains had created havoc in its engine compartment. We performed repairs on it’s turbo and changed its fuse box. Finally, we changed the engine oil. This job took much longer than expected. Thereafter, I performed Global Tests on two Peugeot 207s and called it a day.

On the way home, I spotted two sweet little classics in a public parking lot, just the right way to top off the day!

I will leave you now, with some pictures from today.

The Beemer 750Li. I opened it all up!

Sure looks odd in a workshop full of hatchbacks.

This Pontiac complemented the Merc.

Monthly Featured Post – Hofburg Palace, Vienna – A Glorious Monument to Royal Opulence

This photograph depicts the glorious Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna, Austria, once home to the mighty Habsburgs of Austria-Hungary. It currently serves as the official residence of the President of Austria. Its exterior as well as its interiors are great reminders of the opulence of the European royals in the Age of Empires.

Trailblazers

Milestones set in stone.
They say, go down this way or perish alone,
Without this path, you’ll stay frail.
Forget they do, that grassy trail,
That had seen its last traveller in brocades
And will see it’s next one in shades.
This isn’t the road not taken,
‘Tis the trailblazer’s haven.
