How many times have you watched automotive how-to shows on cable TV and wondered how they make it look so easy, and where did they get all those expensive tools? If you're like most automotive enthusiasts, you don't have any of those awesome tools, let alone a lift in your garage.

To Chris Duke, host of the web TV show, iTunes podcast, and TV program Motorz, keeping how-to installations real for enthusiasts became his calling.
