Colin, I am going to order a couple of kits as soon as Brian is up and running on the site. The blanket is a really good idea along with a couple of different plier shapes to pull nails etc. out and a good pair of side cutters to cut the plug to length.

My Z06 has a small compressor in the truck along with a repair kit. I have never opened the bag. Wonder if it works, wonder if it is even in there? Maybe a good idea to try it out?

yes to the pliers and side cutters Murray.....a comprehensive kit will sure help.

I also have a compressor but it's larger and won't fit in my cubbies. It's one I bought ages ago from CTC -- probably ok but a compact, and newer one would be nice.
An extra compressor won't go to waste anyway with multi vehicles.

Nice that you're waiting to order from Brian. If he steps up for the sponsorship dough he'll appreciate the business.

I hope others wait too.:D

Cheers,
Colin.
 
Colin, I was thinking about the compressor that Brian described and my only thought or concern would be does it have enough power to actually fill the tire if it is completely flat (rim on the ground so to speak). I know a lot of these little pieces of machinery can do some incredible stuff, I would want to make sure it actually can.

Maybe Brian can confirm that.

Murray, I asked him that very question and he said it's rated high enough inflate a car tire from flat......tho, expectedly, you'd need to cool the pump down some during the operation to prevent overheating.

Brian can answer more about it -- he's actually used one I believe.

I have not tried the Dynaplug compressor yet.

When my Z06 had a leak I bought a HP one in Oregon. Wow, it worked fast. It is the green/red one on the right.

The Dynaplug one is the yellow / blue one.... smaller. Now, we say now with smaller displacement engines in cars better power.

Ok, looking at the instructions. Says 7 min for a 195/60/15 tire.

Corvette tires are wider...... but less sidewall... maybe 10-12 min to fill... guessing.

If you have a 78-82 vette..... your in trouble... those might take 30 minutes... haha.

On Monday I will try use these in a race on one of my shop cars ( two tires ) ...... inside my shop as -30 outside for Monday here.

I will post times/results.

I will email Riley soon and see what he says.

Brian

I think a little water bottle with some dish soap in it would be good to pack too..... to put on after to check for bubbling.

Another thing I thought of. if your on a major highway and get a left side flat, it could take 30-45 minutes for most people to change a tire ( if they have a spare ) --- if it takes under 5 minutes to prepare and do the repair that is also a safety feature to get you back on the highway faster too. I remember hearing a new story where someone stopped to help someone change a tire and someone ran into the people.. probably texting.

This takes under a minute to perform once your ready to pull out the nail..... that is safer. Faster then going through a Tim Hortons drive thru haha.


and not being late for work either! or picking up the kids at a daycare.

Also, i know a car chicky... I want to video her doing a fix to show that women could do this too.


I like the whole concept.

Brian


I sent Riley a PM today.

If anyone is interested, Brian will be selling these on the forum. It will just take some time for me to get his membership updated, however, until then, please contact him with any inquiries.....and not only do I plan on allowing him to just sell these, I hope to be a customer too! :D
 
Very good. Seems Brian is going to get a very warm welcome as Sponsor.

I do have his website link, I was just waiting for approval to post:

DYNAPLUGCANADA.COM

Good luck Brian -- seems you'll be ordering more stock before long.

Put me down for another Xtreme Kit and a pump please.

Colin.
 
thanks ... the web site is almost 3/4 done.

With talking with Riley I will be doing an introductory club special starting in the next week.

Mr. Dent / BDL Motorsports main page


Shipping will be $8-10 cheaper then ordering from the USA. They will be sent Expedited which is 1-3 days in Western Canada and 4-7 days for Eastern Canadians.

I might do a $5 Xpresspost button for people in the east needing it faster... the west doesn't really need it that way.



I do have the compressors and replacement items in stock... not every item just yet.

Now, they do have cables that you can hook to a battery with eye hooks or clips. These tools are very popular with ATV owners as your out in the bush with no spare tires.

tell your friends as I will try keep shipping the one amount for multiple items.

I might do free shipping down the road with bigger orders... but probably not with the introductory discount.


I will throw my web site past head office tomorrow... and hope it will be active here by Monday night or Tuesday night.

Most of the shipping will be within 24 hours of ordering, same day for some.


I only will be doing PayPal at first and I do have a business location in Edmonton if you want to do it in person to save shipping. Debit, Visa, MC and cash in person.

I do have business cards being made, they won't be ready for the first orders.

Thanks,

Brian
 
Good morning Brian,

How handy you are in Edmonton! I'll have to add your address to my Garmin and plan on stopping by in person next trip to take a dekko at this rig, it sounds most useful!

Cheers,

Garry

Sure, drop by.

Just call first, I am in my location 80-90% most days and back and forth from dealerships and body shops grabbing vehicles to work on in my main business, door can be locked at times.

Mainly in M-F 9am to 5pm and the odd Saturday.

The site was done yesterday.. was just waiting for head office to look it over. They did today.

Links coming soon.

OK, I will probably not have the site active to the public til maybe mid March.

I have promo's I will do for an introductory special for the forum here.

Brian
 
Colin, you are to fast, I only got silver medal but at least I have a medal. :D

I just order the extreme kit whit the compressor. I already had a 12v compressor but it's way bigger, I will leave it in the truck in case me or someone else need it, you never know, when you are far away in the wood for fishing, the local garage is pretty far to get some air

lol, no worries, I have been criticized for always being here and being perhaps 'ubiquitous' but when it comes to new stuff, being retired does have its advantages.....

LOL, I'm a sharing kind of guy so I'd be pleased to share my gold with you for being one of the first......

Here you go brother:



Cheers,

Colin.
 
Hi everyone. As a shop owner (tires and mechanic services), I saw a lot of different product to fix tires. First the product offered by Amazon is a very old stuff, these plugs are made of fabric and coated whit some rubberized product that usually dry out and on a longer period and tend to leak true the fabric as the coating dry out. The best repair is the patch/plug. It fills the hole and re-enforce the the tire from the inside. Remember that most of the time, wen something puncture your tire it cuts a few steel belt and open a way for water to reach the undamaged steel belts. The patch/plug is the best because block the hole and prevent water to make the belts get rusted and re-enforce the tire where the belts where broke. Second, on low profile tires like ours,you don't have to drive very long to get the interior of your tire shredded. The problem whit any plugs repair is that you don't know if the interior liner is damage or not. Many time I saw tire badly damaged inside whit very small or no damage on the outside. If you have a flat tire tire and you are absolutely positive that you did not ride on a low pressure tire then you can put a plug but if you drove on a low pressure (even a short distance), have the tire remove and check the inside for damage. The dynaplug system seem to be a good product as long as you have a small compressor to refill the tire. If you drove on a low pressure tire, you can use a plug, adjust the pressure and have the interior of the tire check asap. Third I don't want you to think that I am trying to scare any of you and as a shop owner I am trying to sell the idea of going to a shop every time you have a flat tire but after 33 years in a garage I saw a lot of situations that could be avoided. These cars are fast and safety is not an option.

Sorry about my english, but I am sure that you do understant what I am trying to say

Steph.:seeya:

Hi Colin. If someone happened to find a screw or a nail in a tire and there is no lost of air, a plug can be a permanent cure if a good quality product is use, but still, having the tire remove and check is not that expensive to get peace of mind. Most of us do not track the car so no very high speed and I would prefer to have a blow out tire in a vette than any other regular car, I am positive that the handling of the car will probably save my but, the best is still to avoid these situation. We all share the same passion for these car, let's get back home in one piece.

Steph. :seeya:

Here you go Stephane....the posts were in Peter's thread on tire repair.

Great write-ups guys -- Nice to have some insurance in the trunk for those rare times one has a problem.

Cheers,
Colin.
