Any suggestions for something you have used, with links?


For the same effort as getting a car vac out and using it, bring the Dustbuster out from the house. Works much better. They really should offer a car charger for them.

My gift suggestion, for the long-time Leaf driver: get them a new 12 volt accessory battery, preferably a Marine type hybrid-cycle.
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Here's my door saver, made with an old boogie board and some duct tape:

And here's the guidance system:

The hanging ball on the entrance to the garage is important, because as long as the side mirror overlaps that, you won't smash the passenger-side mirror on the side of the door entrance. That's important for my wife who is spatially challenged.

Another tip: Use a quick-release on the string by taping two lengths together halfway up. That way, when you pull it off by mistake, you don't need the ladder to reattach things.

Here's a gift idea, to keep you from losing your $200 key fob:

This one saved me some trouble recently. My fob was where it belonged, but something else had covered it up.
