Riding Dirty

Bench Racing

Man, the Cobalt got dirty going to Glacier this year.

Okay, dirtier than it already was.

I had a shoulder injury and wasn't able to clean her this year the way I like — I was only able to vacuum the interior and clean the windows.

Even that was a challenge.

At least I could see, though.

That vacuuming, thing, however, is nearly as difficult as putting air in the tires was before I picked up the Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator.

My little 2.5-gallon Shop-Vac is the perfect size for doing car detailing, but, it blows the breaker on the only plug in I have access to — just like the little air compressor I was using to pump up the tires.

I've decided to deal with this problem the same way I dealt with the air compressor issue:

Ryobi has a nice little 3-gallon cordless vacuum they call a Project Wet/Dry Vacuum — so, since I've had such good luck with their cordless inflators, I'll give this thing a try.

You can check out my review of the Ryobi 18V One+ Project Wet/Dry Vacuum in the Machine, Equipment, and Tool Reviews section.

I know I've done three reviews of the Ryobi One+ line in a row, but I need cordless options at the moment and I've already invested in the system, so there you go. No, Ryobi isn't paying me to promote them, that's just where I'm at with my hobby right now so that's what you're seeing pop up on the site.

I hope you find the reviews useful.

Until next time, I hope you're not riding as dirty as the Cobalt currently is.
