We need you're reviews

Post by astrozam »

Have you been working on you're van lately? perhaps bought a new tool or some other product for you're vehicles? well if you have, how about snappin a few pics and writing up a little review for ASV which might possibly help out someone in need of that info.
The current Tool & Product reviews have been up for some time now and it would be nice to see some change here. To get an idea of what we are looking for just have a look at our current reviews on the HOME PAGE, If you can help out just put a response in this thread, thanks.

Let's see, what to review. I can probably do that. Now if I could only figure out a way to take pictures without getting my camera all greasy, I would post even more stuff on How-to. Oh well such is life.

I"m either installing an auxiliary electric fan, or going full bore with dual electric fans. I've got to reposition my tranny cooler and get more air flow through the ac condenser...summer's coming early this year.

This is one awesome tool. I have no plans for a brake fluid flush at this time so no pics to follow, but this little tool, bought for my motorcycles years ago has bled many a bike and car, by myself!

Highly recommend.

Not sure if this goes here or not Keith.

Here's a tool I don't know how I lived without all these years. Makes drilling different size holes in sheetmetal a breeze. No swapping out drill pits, just load er up and you've got 12 sizes all the way up to 7/8th's. Everyone needs one of these. A unibit or step drill.
Image

Here's another pic showing the different sizes. After completing each hole, the bit will drop in hole drilled the distance you see between each size to let you know that size is complete.

anyway a recent purchase was a dashdaq computer a US product i believe similar to scangauge II etc. but better if u like toys it has been invaluable to me showin 29 parameters from the OBDII port all customisable screens digital/analogue readout etc and a service soon, read codes reset option which over here in blighty cost about £40 a time around $60
this will connect to ANY vehicle with OBDII output

You had me all excited, till I figured out that the £40 is what they are charging you to read/reset codes. Looks like a really cool tool though. I'll stick with my much cheaper ScanGaugeII for now, but I do want one or something similar.

For those who haven't visited the site, the base model is 544 € ($809 US).
