Hose Candy Customer Stories…Meet Rick Leonis

Meet Rick Leonis

Rick knew exactly what he wanted to get out of a locally sponsored Hose Candy event and what he wanted was to finish dressing up the engine compartment of his car to match the rest of his spectacular ride. The rest of Rick’s car is customized and immaculate from front to back but he wanted something more. He knew that Hose Candy would deliver what he wanted and they would deliver it with ease. He couldn’t have been more correct.


I thought I was done customizing … then I saw Hose Candy

Rick says… “Hose Candy is so easy to install”

Rick watched the Hose Candy team install Hose Candy products on another vehicle and decided that he could do it himself on his own car. The Hose Candy team got Rick the parts he would need to take his engine ay from boring to extraordinary. Rick enjoyed every second of the installation process and kept reminding everybody at the event of how easy Hose Candy was to install and said that,


If I can do it, anybody can do it

Rick Says “Amazing”… more than once

Rick was so pleased with the Hose Candy install and the event that he came back to the Hose Candy shop to get brochures, business cards, and stickers to hand out at all of the events and shows that he attends. Rick continues to say,


Hose Candy is amazingly easy and easily amazing!



My hoses were once the ugliest part of my engine bay and now they are the star
