Auto-Vox M1W wireless rearview camera kit

Camera mounted on rear license frame, and view behind bumper displayed on monitor (BTW, the object was not visible in the factory rear view mirror).

Thank you, Linda, for continuing this thread (and Steve, for all of this). Everyone be safe, and enjoy the Christmas and New Year holidays!

Great to have in the roaster truck in case you get stuck in a snowbank and need to keep warm. :roll:
Also good around a campfire as it does not burn as quick other blankets

Not sure it has been mentioned, but I continue to be amazed by the California Duster. I'm telling you, we went through some dusty dirt roads this past summer, turning my black car to silver. The duster handled it all, and without damaging the paint. One of my favorite all time products. I may just buy myself a new one, not that the current one, used like 4 years, is bad! Just an awesome product. Also, big fan of Eagle one nanowax, especially for dark colors. Nothing has ever worked better on swirls.

90 degree in-line spark checker/tester:

https://www.harborfreight.com/90-in-lin ... 69023.html

A straight version is also available, though not as versatile, due to limited clearance on numerous applications (e.g., Ford 8N). Either way, it’s a good idea to carry a screw-on plug terminal for motorcycles (and some other small engines) with this tool.

Very cost-effective, and easily stored in any toolbox/vehicle – no need to pull a plug to check for spark.

Sweet Battery Disconnect Switch

https://www.ronfrancis.com/prodinfo.asp?number=MS-11

I wanted a remotely controlled battery disconnect switch that didn't require opening the hood every time. These are very well made. I have the remote toggle switch installed inside the cockpit and it works great. This newer version includes a wireless remote key fob as well.

Just in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday...... What's a neat gift for the Roadster owner?
How about a Datsun tree ornament?
