Draining the VelocityAP Catch Can on an Aston Martin V8 Vantage

The factory air-oil separator on the Aston Martin V8 Vantage lets a surprisingly large amount of oil get into the intake manifold. I designed a plug-and-play oil catch can to help fix the problem. This video shows how to drain the catch can. The kit is sold through VelocityAP and can be purchased here: http://www.velocityap.com/

And through my own website, here: http://www.redpants.lol/shop/oil-catch-can

How to easily clean your headlights in minutes with household products! How to do it.

Are you cleaning your care and wondering how to clean that nasty yellow haze off of your headlights? In this video Farm Girl uses, Gojo, 600 grit sandpaper and baking soda to demonstrate how each works and then how they all work together. The gojo trick works fin to get the filthy hazed layer off but leaves the lense a bit dull looking, so it's good to follow up with something that will give you a more polished finish. You can try 1200 grit sand paper for your finish if you want to fully restore them headlights. but for a quick fix the gojo and baking soda works fine. Also try an abrasive toothpaste, that works too!

Just remember that you can easily get better results with household items and or sandpaper for a fraction of the cost than with expensive kits.
