About Schwarttzy

Welcome!

My name is Eric Schwarz, but I go by Schwarttzy, and this is my website that I designed. I like to build websites, specializing in hand written WordPress Themes. I also sell custom off-road parts for the H3 Hummer. Finally, I’m a Professional Skydiver… I actually get paid to jump out of airplanes.

H3 Hummer Parts

My passion with going off-road began with a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I quickly lost control and built an off-road beast. I love that Grand Cherokee, but with time I realized I had the spec sheet of a H3 Hummer. Don’t get me wrong, my H3 will probably never preform off-road as well as that Jeep. But that Jeep will never drive on-road as well as my Hummer. So I sold the Jeep, purchased the Hummer and wanted to get some basic parts so I could hit the trails. I designed and built my first set of rock sliders and took off from there. I’ve got two new designs in the works right now, a true hands free calling and music Bluetooth device, and a Hi-Lift / CB Antenna Mount / Bottle opener coming soon.

Website Designer / Developer

I specialize as a WordPress Theme developer, a few theme’s I give away for free on WordPress.org and have premium content too. I also build everything from the ground up using GoDaddy Virtual Private Servers running Centos 7. Basically it’s a LAMP stake server with Centos 7, Apache, MySQL, and PHP 7. I like to avoid using JavaScript, and instead rely on HTML5 & CSS3 tricks. Not to get to technical, I make websites where the client can manage their website without me with little to no website knowledge. Websites I build have the same amount of difficultly that Microsoft Office takes to print a paper.

Skydiving

I like to get paid to jump out of “Perfectly Good Airplanes.” Basically I got a rating, to be pilot in command, through the United States Parachute Association and United Parachute Technologies that allows me to haul meat out of a airplane for cash. I’m an AFFI, which is fancy why of saying that I can give anyone that meets the minimum requirements a license to skydive. However, my true passion has become shooting outside video now. I’d be know in the community for great outside video . Then I would non-stop tour the boogies. For know though, I just want share pictures and video of Freefly, Angle, building huge Hybrids, Pro Rated jumps (also referred to as demonstration jumps), and above all other jumps a Rogue Skydive.

Black Plastic Restored

For longer than I’d like to admit, I’ve been trying to find a solution to the aged plastic trim on my H3 Hummer. The Trim on the vehicle has taken quite the beating from the sun, weather, and years of driving. This damage has left the plastic with this blotchy grey-ish chalk white color. I’ve tried a bunch of products that claim to restore the look, like Mothers Back-to-Black Trim and Plastic Restorer, but they barely last a few days. I can’t bring myself to use Plasti Dip or Bed Liner because it looks half-ass. The heat gun trick didn’tContinue Reading

CB Radio

The Citizen Band Radio, or CB Radio, is one of the most important parts to equip a 4×4 vehicle with. A CB Radio is a requirement for most organized Off-Road events. Despite it’s old design, the CB Radio is a very effective tool at keeping everyone safe on the trail. In an age of cell phones, Facebook Messenger, and a hundred other things you’d think that the CB Radio would be a thing of the past, but honestly it’s just as relevant as ever. What makes the CB radio a valuable tool for communication on the 4×4 trails is theContinue Reading

H3 Upgraded Battery

Next time the battery in a H3 Hummer dies, I recommend getting the Optima Battery 8022-091 75/25 Red Top or 8042-218 D75/25 Yellow Top instead of a factory replacement. Although, theĀ Optima D75/25 is much bigger than the factory battery and will not fit inside that plastic box… but who cares. Personally, I think the plastic box is just there to add a distraction from the small battery and the non-GM labeling of the battery. So I ditched that factory hummer plastic box that the battery was hiding inside of, and dropped in a much bigger battery in it’s place. ReasonContinue Reading

Leaky Sunroof

A few months ago I fixed an issue where the sunroof on my H3 Hummer wouldn’t properly drain the water. Which would make for a surprise after a particularly heavy rain fall. The problem was from going off-road with the Hummer and flinging mud and debris every where with the sunroof wide open. By design, all sun roofs leak which is why they have tubes to drain the water. If the mud and debris is forgotten about and never cleaned out, it tends to get jammed in the tubes. Once the H3 Hummer sunroof tubes are clogged, the water hasContinue Reading

H3 Hummer PCM Programming

After some research using the internet on PCM’s and Tuning, I found out that I don’t have the latest tune / reflash from GM for my H3’s 2006 3.5 L (211 CID) L52 I5 cylinder engine. I was able to check my vehicle by using a simple OBDII sensor I have and cross referencing numbers using TIS website by entering the VIN number. I compared the tune number from my previous post P0455 & P0442 ECU Fault Log H3 Hummer where the Vehicle Calibration ID on my vehicle as 12606370. The tune 12606370‘s description mentions that it is for “NewContinue Reading

Burnt Out HVAC Instrument Panel Light Bulbs

About year ago in my dashboard a light bulb for controlling the vents went out on my H3 Hummer, making it difficult to see which setting I had the ventilation on. A few months later, I had two light bulbs that didn’t illuminate on my HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) Control Panel which began to make choosing the setting on the instrument panel difficult at night. I called up GM about getting it fix but all they want to do is completely replace the GM Part No. 15840354 CONTROL, A/C Instrument Panel, or with the part ACDelco 15-73909 GMContinue Reading

Blu-ray to MKV (MP4) Using Handbrake

In my opinion the movie corporation needs to wake up to the 21st century and realize that formats like DVDs and Blu-rays are dead. When it comes to Google Play and iTunes the prices these companies charge for movies is bloated at best in my opinion. I can compress Blu-rays down to 1.6GB on average with nearly unnoticeable quality loss. As far as I’m concerned, there is no reason not to compress data. As a proof in point, the newer HBO series Silicon Valley is about a company that has some extremely good compression logarithm. My final point that theyContinue Reading

130,000 Miles

Just the other day, while driving back from a weekend of packing parachutes at Skydive Alabama, my H3 Hummer crossed over the 130,000 mileage mark on the odometer. I think that my H3 has entered it’s proving ground now. This mileage period from now on shows how well built the vehicle really is. With a goal of 250,000 on the odometer, I want to reflect back on the vehicles performance so far. While I wish I had more power from the engine, the 3.5 L (211 CID) L52 I5 has never let me down in all those miles. The bodyContinue Reading

P0455 & P0442 ECU Fault Log H3 Hummer

About year ago my ECU light came on in my H3 Hummer, noticeably after some fun off-road. I grab my cheap Chinese OBD-II to Blue Tooth scanner from eBay, it doesn’t work with Fords, and open the Android application “Torque” . The scanner had no problem grabbing the code and I was able to see the error report in the computer. Fault log report generated by Torque for Android —————— Vehicle VIN: 5GTDN136X68227871 Vehicle Manufacturer: Unknown Vehicle Calibration ID: 12606370 12601134 1260 Current Fault Log —————— P0455: Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (gross leak, check fuel cap, piping etc)Continue Reading

Updates & WooCommerce

In with the new, and out with the old. I’m dumping my old shopping cart software in favor of the more popular WooCommerce. If you’re interested in why, well I have my reasons. I’m theme developer, and I don’t need some shopping cart software attempting to do what I can do better. I would rather the shopping cart software use as many of the well polished built in WordPress features, instead of reinventing the wheel. Some other odds and ends also bothered me too. However those details are rather boring to explain. I’d like to make things fun for youContinue Reading
