Itz A Gas Can

It seems like there are just a few times in your life where you run out of gas.  For some people, that may be sooner than later.  Gas prices right now are so low here in Ohio that everyone seems to have a full tank.  When the time comes and you are deep in conversation or you just aren't paying attention, Itz A Gas Can can be your lifeboat. 

The concept is very simple.  Instead of buying the $20 gas can at the gas station when you run out, they have a better idea.  Have a can in your car at all times.  They don't just sell you a large, oversized can though.  Itz A Gas Can is a portable, compact and build when you need it system.  The entire concept is so simple and clever, you'll wonder why didn't I think of that?  The video below will show you the entire process.  With all that being said, check these guys out.  These make great gifts for the holidays and this truly is a product that you'll wish you had it, when you really need it.

Diono Rainier Child Seat

When you think about installing a child seat, most of us automatically look at our significant others.  We expect them to come up with the best option at Babies R Us, then we carry it to the car and install once we get home.  The point of this story is for you to get more involved.  Don't just pass the buck on this job, you wouldn't do that with an exhaust system would you?

My daughter is ready to upgrade.  Her infant seat is reaching the limits for her size, so the next step is the bigger version that allows her to sit more upright and also removes the carrier from the equation.  I went with Diono, mainly because of this laundry list right here:

  • Holds Lilly rear facing up to 50lbs
  • Aluminum reinforced surround and full steel frame
  • FAA certified
  • Folds for easy carrying & storage
  • Works up to 120lbs as a booster
  • 12 year shelf life

That right there, should help you with your decision making.  Diono is an industry leader in child safety systems and the Rainier model we picked up for this story is one of their best.  Our model is the Graphite color, which looks good with any kid and in any car.  Follow along as I show you unboxing and also how to install this setup.  I really love this thing and the best part is, I handled it all.  While my wife watched Lilly, played and fed her lunch, I was able to handle all of this from start to finish.  It gave me some pride knowing I'm involved and also knowing that I chose a safe and easy to use system for my daughter.  Enjoy the video below and if you'd like to purchase a Rainier, click the link below.


Meguiar's DA Power System Tool - G3500

The Meguiar's DA Power System is a unique tool that allows you to fully buff your car, without purchasing expensive , professional equipment.  They allow you to use your own drill with their setup, which is a big bonus. 

The plan was to buff out some fairly heavy swirl marks on my Dad's Z06.  I contacted Meguiar's and they recommended this entire kit with pads, compounds and the DA attachment.  The tool literally wobbles all around like a random orbital would, very impressive.  I found though that with this kit, you aren't getting professional results.  Don't get me wrong, for the normal do-it-yourself-er, this is a great idea.  It has the ability to remove light scuffs, swirls, and paint defects.  My guess is the Z06 just has too deep of an issue going on, which will have to be tackled with a more aggressive compound and tool.  I found though, that the DA System is great for applying wax quickly and in a fashion you cannot mimic with your own arm.  Watch the video below and I'll show you what I mean with all this.  Below the video are links to everything I demo out here, so if you are in the market, give it a shot.  The price is right and this kit will allow you to have a little fun with your vehicle waxing ritual. 


Husky Liners Weatherbeater - Ford Flex

Anytime we work with Husky, it always ends well.  That should tell you something as the consumer.  They are a Made in America company selling high quality products which always seem to do their job.  In the garage, we had a 2014 Ford Flex, the ultimate family vehicle.  Third row seats, storage, and an interior that feels like the size of my living room.  One of the worries with any family vehicle is wear and tear, especially the interior.  There are so many spots where items can fall, spill, get dirty, and even get ruined.  This is where Husky Liners comes to the rescue.  We set up with them to outfit the entire Ford Flex, which is not a small job.  Watch the movie below to see how we protect every square inch of carpet in the Ford Flex with the help of Husky Liners
