Pink YETI Cooler For My Wife

Pink YETI Cooler For My Wife

Last updated on August 25th, 2018 at 03:49 pm

My wife Karen and I love cruising down the open roads with the top down on my Corvette convertible while engaging in one of our frequent impromptu road trips. My wife would normally bring along with her soft ice chests to store her refreshments, but by the middle of the day, all of the ice would be melted. When her birthday came around I presented her with a Pink Yeti Cooler, the Roadie 20 model, and she can’t get enough of it!

I have a Yeti Cooler myself and when I saw on Discount Cooler Sales website that they were selling a limited edition pink version of the Yeti Roadie 20 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, I knew that Karen would fall in love with it. With the rugged performance of the best outdoor cooler on the market and the soft feminine touch of her favorite color, she was beyond ecstatic when she opened up this birthday gift.

Pink YETI Cooler Ice Retention

No longer does she have to worry about the ice melting during her trip, because her pink Yeti Cooler can withstand even the most intense sun rays. Even on some of our longer day trips, she finds that barely any ice has melted thanks to the trademarked PermaFrost insulation that makes Yeti Coolers so popular. Combined with the ColdLock gasket technology that locks warm temperatures completely out, ice can last days on end. She can bring even the most perishable morsels to enjoy on her trips now.

Pink YETI Cooler Performance

Another aspect she loves about her pink Yeti Cooler is the Vortex Drain System that features a screw in drain plug that allows you to drain excess water without the threat of mess. The soft ice chests she had previously used would often leak, but her pink Yeti Roadie 20 is sealed tight, giving her complete reassurance.

Karen’s Yeti Roadie 20 can hold up to 14 bottles of her favorite hard cider, as well as a fair amount of ice, which is more than enough room for her. Sometimes I can even manage to sneak a couple of my beers in there as well. Even with a large amount of room inside, her pink Yeti Cooler still isn’t too clunky and inconvenient to carry around in our Corvette. The weight of the Yeti Roadie comes in at 16 pounds sans contents, so with contents, it still isn’t too heavy to transport. The durable, stainless steel handle makes it even easier to carry and locks in place to keep it steady while you are moving it around. It is also small enough to take up very little room in the hatch or backseat of my corvette, making it one of the most compact coolers that I have ever seen.

Ever since I have gotten my wife the Yeti Roadie 20, she has brought it on every single one of our day trips, and has even brought it with her to her office! She tells me that her friends at the office are all jealous of her new cooler. This high-quality cooler is an absolutely perfect gift for anyone who wants a stylish ice chest that performs as good as it looks.

303 Fabric Guard Saved My Corvette’s Convertible Top

303 Fabric Guard Saved My Corvette’s Convertible Top

Last updated on August 25th, 2018 at 03:48 pm

As most of our readers know, I am the proud owner of several Corvettes, including a 2010 Corvette Convertible. I consider my Corvettes to be my babies. I take immaculate care in trying to maintain them in a pristine condition. As with any vehicle, as time goes by, things begin to degrade on the car, and you must work hard to maintain them. As my Corvette’s convertible top begin to show signs of wear, I made a decision to purchase 303 Fabric Guard to protect it and restore it to a more new condition. I cannot say enough good things about this product. In fact, I am so pleased with it, that I decided to write this article to show you how to apply it to keep your car in great shape as well.

303 Fabric Guard Application And Success

When using this product, I found that you must follow a few simple guidelines to make sure it works perfectly as recommended. The benefits of this product are many:

1. Water repellant capabilities.
2. Stain replant capabilities.
3. It can be used on any fabric, including fabric convertible tops (which is how I used it).
4. The product actually can be used on any outdoor fabrics or umbrellas as well.

303 Fabric Guard is a fabulous product and restored my top to its original condition. 303 products come in other forms as well, and I believe they are every bit as effective and successful as the one I used on my convertible top.

303 Aerospace Protectant is another excellent product with tremendous UV protection capabilities as well.

303 Fabric Guard Recommendation

So why would use the 303 Fabric Guard? My response is why would you not use the 303 Fabric Guard? It is in my opinion the best product out there for the job.

I recommend that you follow the instructions below for best use:
1. Before starting, ensure that your fabric is both dry and clean.
2. Apply the product with a soft, clean cloth.
3. It’s best to apply the 303 product when the temperature is at least 70 degrees farenheit.
4. As with any sort of spray, make sure your working area has adequate ventilation.
5. Spray the Fabric Guard in a crisscross manner.
6. Spray just enough to dampen the fabric, being careful not to over-spray or soak it.
7. Allow the fabric to dry for at least 6-12 hours.
8. Since it is flammable, be sure not to store 303 Fabric Guard in a really hot area or any area near flames.

If you follow these steps on your convertible top, you will see results that I would define as literally amazing. If you would have told me that a product like this was this capable of restoring my Corvette’s convertible top’s natural beauty, I would have said you were crazy.

I first found out about 303 products after reading the reviews over at Joe offers a lot of information about car and boat detailing. Check out Joe’s site the next time you need to clean your car up for a show.

Use the 303 Protectant as well periodically as a preventative product, this way you can stop fading before it gets to a level where it becomes obvious. This product is not overly expensive, and I believe an investment in 303 Fabric Guard is well worth the money, because you will be protecting your car for many years to come in the future.

OPT7 LED Headlights Upgrade To Our Corvette

OPT7 LED Headlights Upgrade To Our Corvette

Last updated on August 25th, 2018 at 03:48 pm

With spring almost here, we decided to do some modifications to our 1996 Corvette. Specifically, we thought now would be a great time to install the OPT7 LED headlights upgrade kit that we purchased about a month ago. The OPT7 LED headlights kit installation went smoothly, and we are very pleased with the results.

OPT7 LED Headlight Kits For Sale Online

When shopping for your headlights online, it’s important to understand the various options available to you. For example, you should know the difference between xenon vs led vs halogen headlights.

We found many places online with OPT7 LED Headlight kits for sale. However, in the end, we chose to buy them from Amazon. It should come as no surprise to anyone that Amazon offered the lowest price, including free shipping. Not only that, their customer service has proven to us numerous time to be top notch. So, while you can do your research about OPT7 HID and LED headlights on any of the numerous headlight sites out there, we recommend that you check them out on Amazon before you buy them somewhere else.

OPT7 LED Headlights Installation

Installing the OPT7 LED headlights was a fairly simple process. I won’t go over all of the details, but there are plenty of videos, like the one below, that will show you how to install them. Just make sure that you have the right tools and are comfortable under the hood before installing OPT7 LED headlights. The directions provided with the kit are also quite good, so you really should have no problems. People with larger hands may have a little more difficulty with installation of OPT7 LED headlights, since getting your hands into the nooks and crannies under the hook may be a bit more challenging.

All together it only took about 45 minutes to get the OPT7 LED headlights completely installed. I spent most of that time trying to get the old bulbs removed. They can be a bit tricky to get to. Other than that, the headlight installation on my Corvette went fine, without issues.

After the OPT7 LED headlight upgrade, we headed down to Stewey’s Bar & Grill in Southport. The gang there all loved the Corvette and the upgraded OPT7 LEDs. The headlights are now super focused and road visibility at night is superb.

The OPT 7 LED headlights produce slightly blue hue, yet extremely crisp light on the road. I can certainly see why these headlights are as popular as they are.

We had looked at a fewer cheaper LED kits, but the online OPT7 LED headlight reviews persuaded me to give them a try. I am glad that I did, as I don’t think it would be possible to beat the value and performance of the OPT7 LEDs that we selected.

OPT7 LED Kit Installation Conclusion

Overall, upgrading the headlights on our Corvette was time and money well spent. The OPT7 LED headlights have proven to provide great night time visibility, and makes us feel a little safer while driving after dark. We highly recommend the OPT7 LEDs if you’re looking to improve the style and safety of your Corvette.
