How To Winterize Your Vehicle -EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Discussion about this video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/component/kunena/18-The-EricTheCarGuy-Video-Forum/40872-How-To-Winterize-Your-Vehicle?Itemid=0#40872 This video has been a long standing request and I'm glad I was able to fill it here. So if you're about to go into the winter season perhaps this video will help you with ideas on what you should do to your vehicle before the snow flies. I took a slightly different approach with this one in that I reached out to my viewers and asked them about what THEY do when they winterize their vehicles and incorporated many of their suggestions into this video. Even so, I'm sure there will be other good suggestions and I would urge you to either post them in the comments below or even better post them to the forum link above. Either way your comments and suggestions are welcome. Enjoy the video.

Why Mechanics Drive Junk Cars -ETCG1
This topic was suggested by forum member Brink5. It's a great question and I admit that I'm guilty of this myself. For some reason I'm happier driving a junky old car over a new whatever. My reasons are simple and I state them in the video. I've also noticed this trend in many other mechanics and technicians. I'd love to hear your input as well. Are we wrong in this, or do mechanics really drive junk? Thanks for watching. EricTheCarGuy Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/EricTheCarGuy Intro music by Eric Cook "ETCG1 Intro". Related Videos.

Easy Rust Repair the 'Hack' Way -EricTheCarGuy
As you may know my 1993 Acura Vigor had some pretty bad water leaks into the trunk due to rust issues. To repair them I needed to do a little body work. In this video I show how to do body work using 'hack' methods to get you by. In order to do this 'properly' it would have been best to cut out the old rusted material and weld in new metal. I didn't feel that my $500 Acura Vigor was worth that effort so I did what you see here in this video. As stated this method works very well for floor pans or other areas where you're not necessarily going to see the finished product. Honestly, I don't think things turned out so bad, in fact, I have a new appreciation for the car now that I've done this work, despite the fact that the paint doesn't' match. Perhaps one day I'll go back and finish it properly and respray the entire car. For now, I have other work to do to keep this car in good working order.
