We figured Heculiner would look great on a truck bed.... watch us make over the (seriously trashed) bed in Patrick's Dodge 2500, from peeling out the old liner to rolling on the new one. (Hint: it's ALL about the prep before you start rolling it on!) But when we were done, we had extra bed liner, so we decided to find out what happens when you try it out on other things.

Build a Custom Suitcase Boom Box!
 
06:58
Speakers + Vintage Suitcase = Awesome Sound? Jesse wrote in, "I have been looking into building a stereo suitcase. I want to make it myself instead of buying similar online custom models." We love this project... find out how to build your own suitcase boom box in the video! It's fast, fun, surprisingly cheap if you upcycle speakers, looks great. Your friends will be amazed! (And then they'll start dancing.) A more nuanced explanation of the Ohm rating is coming next week. But to add to what was stated in the episode- most car speakers are rated at 4 Ohms. If you properly match your speakers and amp, 4 or 8 Ohm speakers will work... 4 ohm speakers are just harder to drive, so make sure you have enough amp if you pick 'em.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has funded research to develop a pee powered smartphone battery... but you can make one right now. Lemon batteries are cool, but salt batteries are powerful.

We show you how to build a battery from aluminum foil, copper wire, charcoal, and salty liquid that'll charge a smart phone in the video!

FreeNAS Developers Help Us Build A Better FreeNAS Box!
 
14:02
FreeNAS is the most popular storage OS in the world, and makes it easy for anyone to build secure, robust network attached storage (NAS) to store files and share files. We love our FreeNAS server! So when the caretakers of FreeNAS over at iXsystems called to ask if we'd like to do another -ultimate- FreeNAS build with a couple of their experts, we said YES! Where did FreeNAS come from? Should you use server parts like EEC RAM, or can you use junk parts from the bottom o' the closet? Are FreeNAS and the ZFS file system CPU bound? How much RAM do you need? What's a jail? How do you set up -all- the plugins? We've got answers from the experts! Jordan Hubbard is the project lead for FreeNAS and the CTO at iXsystems, a co-founder of FreeBSD, and a key engineer at Apple from 2000 - 2013. James Nixon keeps the web servers at iXsystems running, and has a passion for FreeNAS plugins. You'll learn tons about FreeNAS, open source, and setting up your backup hardware the right way in this video!

If you are looking for a general guide to overclocking modern chips, take a look at Lifehacker's beginner article: http://lifehacker.com/a-beginners-introduction-to-overclocking-your-intel-pr-5580998 But as they mention, it's best to look up the specifics of the processor that you're working on.

Make Hangover-Curing Donuts at Home!
 
09:08
Got a wicked hangover New Year's day? Some nice, fluffy buttermilk donuts might be just what you need! http://www.cooksillustrated.com/recipes/1192-buttermilk-doughnuts INGREDIENTS 3 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus extra for surfaces 1 cup granulated sugar 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon table salt 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh grated nutmeg 3/4 cup buttermilk 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 2 large eggs 1 egg yolk 6 cups vegetable shortening for frying INSTRUCTIONS 1. Mix 1 cup flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in bowl of standing mixer fitted with paddle attachment. 2. Mix buttermilk, butter, and eggs in 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup. Add wet ingredients to the dry; beat on medium speed (number 4 setting on a KitchenAid) until smooth, about 30 seconds. Decrease speed to low (number 2 setting on a KitchenAid); add remaining flour and mix until just combined, about 30 seconds. Stir batter once or twice with wooden spoon or rubber spatula to ensure that all liquid is incorporated. (The dough will be moist and tacky, a cross between cake batter and cookie dough.) 3. Fit candy thermometer to side of cast-iron kettle or large, heavy-bottomed soup kettle; gradually heat shortening over medium-high heat to 375 degrees. Meanwhile, turn dough onto floured work surface. Roll with heavily floured rolling pin to 1/2-inch thick. Stamp out dough rings with heavily floured doughnut cutter, reflouring between cuts. Transfer dough rounds to jelly roll pan or large wire rack. Gather scraps and gently press into disk; repeat rolling and stamping process until all dough is used. (Cut doughnuts can be covered with plastic wrap and stored at room temperature up to 2 hours.) 4. Carefully drop dough rings into hot fat four or five at a time, depending on kettle size. Turn doughnuts as they rise to surface with tongs, a Chinese skimmer, or a slotted spoon. Fry doughnuts until golden brown, about 50 seconds per side. Drain on paper towel-lined jelly roll pan or wire rack. Repeat frying, returning fat to temperature between each batch.
