    Post What did you do to your car today?

    I've seen threads like this on other forums and I thought Beyond should have one.

    Whether it be an oil change, performance modification or just a wash, tell us what you did to your car today.

    I installed a Blue Sea aux fuse panel and heated seat pads today. It was my first time messing with upholstery and it went pretty well. I cut the hog rings with side cutters and replaced them with zip ties which made putting things back together far easier.

    I cursed swore and asked myself where the coolant leak was

    Tomorrow maybe if time allows I'll figure out where from...

    I drifted a turnoff nicely in an AWD car. Winter tires FTW.

    Switched over to my winters today, not excited for the first time I punch it and forget there's less traction.

    Same here. It's supposed to be a mild/dry winter for the prairies, and with the weather we've been having, I don't want to burn off the blizzaks. Have brand new all seasons on, gonna see if i can hold until either an actually full blown snowfall or december.

    Other than that, cleaned up the garage today and booted around with the truck. Cleaned her up at the wash was all I did with the truck. SUV sat around looking pretty.

    Yeah well I wonder how they get the soft flowing caramel inside the Caramilk bar but you don't see me making a god damn thread about it. Slap your wife Baygirl, straighten him out.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    I wanted to do this too haha, but I don't want to end up having to swap my tires when we get a sudden blizzard or cold snap since I'm doing it outside in my driveway. If I parked in a garage I'd do it the night before it starts getting seriously cold or snowy.

    Nothing because I did my wheel swap last weekend. Also cleaned my hubs of corrosion applied anti seize and set tire pressures. Torqued them to spec but while i had the wheels off I serviced/inspected my brakes to make sure they were in good order. Since I had the car In the air I drained the oil, it was before my usual oil change interval so I left the old filter. Refilled with new oil and checked the level. Road tested and It was brilliant. Then I vacuumed inside and cleaned the exterior
