    If I could write the directions for tool use for companies I'd gladly do it.


    Guido Valentini told me he wanted me to write the how-to book for the RUPES iBrid Nano 2 SEMA's ago when they were announced. I was excited to be asked by the President of RUPES to do this project. Never heard from him or anyone after that.

    First time I opened a RUPES iBrid Nano I read the paper that came with it and ended up writing 2-3 new articles to fill in the voids.



    LOL....yep, you're on point. When people say, refer to manufacturers directions, I don't always have the most confidence.

    Inquiring mind (me) dares to ask why did you post this in the Thursday night class area? Did I miss something or ?

    I just kept this project down to a few people. We've had really big turnouts lately, nothing wrong with that in fact it's a good thing but this is a custom paint job with some major issues so I wanted a small group.

    Plus we had a new guy from Connecticut.

    I'd love to get all 4, the hand light, pen, match grip and the head light. Due time...
    Until then, I do thoroughly use my Flex Light, and it's quality is excellent as well.

    Are you referring to the handheld multumatch or the bigger lamp? The handheld is great. I was playing around with it and it shows up defects very well. Both my cars are light in color and it showed defects on them that I did not see before with an LED flashlight. The color of it is just right. One of these days I will get the bigger light.

    The headlamp is great as well. Gives a nice flood light dispersal of light. Same color as the handheld which shows defects very well. Brightness can be adjusted with one button while the other button is for the motion sensor trigger. The motion sensor trigger is a cool feature which allows one to turn it on with the swipe of the hand. It is also a rechargeable light. Great for interiors as well. Also the foam comfort piece behind the headlamp itself makes it comfortable compared to other headlamps.

    The pen light is also very nice. I would recommend these three for sure and I can see why these lights are so popular.

    Mike P.

    Per your recommendation I picked up a Sunmatch via AG.

    When I first turned it on I thought,

    "OK, well this is not much (if any) better than some of the hand held lights I already have."


    Then I followed the directions...

    "charge fully before use"


    When the five light bars were all the way to the right I tried it again and all I can say is WOW! I'm really lovin' this light.

    Thank you again for your review...I'm now looking forward to picking up a SCANGRIP Multimatch and a I-View. If they are as good and the Sunmatch these lights are a real winner!

    Thanks Again.

    The customer just picked it up, and it was super cloudy.

    Luckily, I had shown him the true condition with the light before when we met for consultation.

    I was able to show him what it looked like now with the light. He was amazed,


    Great testimony...


    Thanks for sharing...
