I fabbed one of these up this weekend. It cost ~ 20 in materials at the hardware store.

I changed mine a little so I can unscrew the nozzle and use the hose input piece (with the on/off knob) to hose the rest of the car down.

Works well!

Next trip to HD, and I'll have another project. Thanks for posting.

A) WHERE does one obtain the groovy music used in these "How To" videos?

B) FLAW: At no point did you mention minding the orientation of the holes during this rig's irreversible assembly.

A friend found out that spraying water under his F-150 and letting it dry made his Harbor Freight rust peener work better.
He used a sprinkler.

Many thanks for the idea.

I think you should be able to make those bends thermally. Save a bit of gluing and component purchase

I had to make a run to HD so I grabbed what I needed and threw one together. It works well. Just be sure to read what people posted below the video. The holes are 7/64ths he had a typo in the video. I was lucky and caught it before hand.
