    Default 2018 weather and road conditions thread

    Discuss hail, snow, ice, rain, and even sunshine along with its effect on driving conditions here.

    Extreme and mundane weather discussion all welcome.

    Agreed. I took offense to the previous "extreme weather" thread title. Calgary gets very little of that, but the thread had updates every day.

    I am sure that this thread will just turn into a studded vs non studded debate.

    It's slushy and gross out. How do people keep cars clean?

    I was thinking this to myself. It's either too cold or too slushy out to even bother washing the car. I'll probably give it a douche tonight out of pity.

    Oh, I'm not worried about the slush sticking, I'm talking about how my car turned from gray to brown in a single day.

    Ceramic coatings. Best thing I have ever done to my car. Run it through the CO-OP touchless and it looks like it has a fresh coat of wax on it every time. Nothing sticks to it and it's protected from salt/sap/bird poop, etc.

    There is nothing you can do about the fine spray off people's tires though that slowly turns every car brown haha, this just makes it much, much, easier to clean off with minimal effort.

    Also get your windows coated as well! Even the easy to apply Aquapel does wonder!

    I started reading into ceramic as this sounds like a great idea. Several shops are saying donít apply to windows as you can get weird distortion effects. Any truth to that?

    I'm doing it tomorrow so hopefully decent. Traffic cameras all show the roads being totally clear of snow, and with it not being too cold out hopefully won't be icy.

    Can't be any worse than a $200 replacement windshield some people run.

    Drove it yesterday, they were fine. No snow on them anywhere. Fill up on washer fluid though.

    Some companies like Gtechniq and CarPro have specific coatings for windows and windshields but I can tell you from my own experience with Gtechniq EXO. I had no issues with distortion from using a coating on any windows.

    It will usually last for around 1 - 1.5 years on the side windows and a little less on the windshield.

    Would Aquapel be good in these conditions? I've yet to try it.
