I was amazed at how well Por-15 did too. I wonder how hard it dries. Can it fight stone chips from road trips?

Sarah tries out a Harbor Freight soda blaster on the bed of the Ranger. Can it handle the job? You decide.

Rebuilding the rear end and adding a limited slip.

Gotta admit. Having an open diff with the weird ABS powered "anti-slip" makes me jealous of the LSD install.

Breaking bolts because auto mechanics is a hard nut to crack.

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
Can we talk about how she pronounces aluminum. She says it like a Brit.

Yes! She does it on purpose just to be annoying.

If I ever meet her in real life, I promise to be every bit as annoying to her.

Didn't think much of her at first, then watched a few vids;
quirky but seems a fairly good mechanic & has money to spend on tools+shop (GrandMa's inherentance?).

Another youtuber, based on Sarah’s views, estimates 5k a month in income for this channel. That’ll buy some powdercoating. 🙂

As long as you don't tick off the Youtube Over Lords, one can make some decent money on Youtube. Once you tick them off, they demonetize your videos, shadow ban you, make notifications drop, cause subscribers to be unsubscribed, and issue strikes your your videos until you get banned from the platform.

As far as I can tell, she doesn't ruffle any feathers and she checks at least some of the right boxes as far as Youtube view point is concerned. So, she is bringing in all that Youtube is willing to pay out.

What surprises me is that YouTubers can get twice the money off Facebook. (AutoVlog showed his income from both places.)
