    We had 51 degrees and sun today here in Delaware. So, I pulled her out of hiding and went top to bottom, end to end with a waterless car wash. Whew! Still amazing after 7 years!
    Keep on CHALLENGING!

    Just couldn't take it no more. Today was sunny and about 40 so we took the Challenger go my brothers house to celebrate a late Christmas with my family. Ran great in this cold weather.

    I miss judged the amount of road grime and salt residue so it got pretty dirty on the 100 mile round trip. Got home around 10 pm and gave it a quick wash and rinse down and put it back in the garage. Driveway is a sheet of ice but that's what they make rock salt for.

    Tomorrow I will hit it with some waterless wash to clean it up better and cover back up for another long nap.

    Good for you Kevin!!! If your temps are above 32, trust me, you can wash it!!! Your driveway will melt if the sun comes out tomorrow. I know what you mean about it getting wiped out with the road grime. I would drive mine anyway if we just had warm enough temps for me to clean it up when I got home.

    Started mine up in the garage yesterday and let it run about 20 minutes. Then went back in the garage and revved it up a few times allowing the rpms to fluctuate, then turned the air on as well for a bit to get that stuff moving in the A/C system.

    Then watched the Bears lose their last game!! Oh well, what else is there to do. Then we skyped with my son and grandson in Connecticut...at least that was fun. They went snowboarding yesterday and my grandson isn't even 3 yet. :):):)

    It's a plastic coating to renew and preserve trim parts. Works well. There's a bit of a technique to applying it, it's not as easy as they say. The more textured the plastic the easier it is to get a smooth consistent finish.

    Received an Email at 4 pm last night to tell me I had an appointment at 8 this morning, it was news to me but I wanted to go in so no problem. It was raining of course and the appointment was to check out but not fix ( I don't trust them) the roller bearings and casing siting in my passengers side seat tracks . They are going to replace the whole track system. While there it had two dodge updates to go through, another radio one and an extra top rad hose clamp as there is obviously an issue. While doing that the tech did a test on the radiator that has been flagged and it failed so will need a new radiator. Oh Joy :(:(

    What happened to the seat? Does this have anything to do with people (me) seeing lube drip down onto the floor

    Uncovered her and drove down to Wally World to pick up a few things. TPMS light was still on even though I put air in the tires last time, had to put a couple of pounds over in the rear to get it go off while taking a quick country trip just to have some driving time. Took the extra pressure out when I got home. The battery maintainer appears to be working well as it turned over quickly when I hit the key. Rebaited the mouse traps since I'll be home for a spell and can check them every day or two.
