    Hopefully these tips are helpful. The weather has been horrible here with snow ever couple of days which has put a hamper on filming my regular How-To videos. Hopefully the snow melts soon! I have some awesome videos coming!!!

      Hi Chris fix I got a tip what if you can polish cars from rusting and make sure you have a good battery charging system and check your wiper blades and your radios in the cars for news on weather and make sure you can keep your car battery's charged up with a battery charger and always use a snowblower to blow the entire snow in your city

      Extra use for my leaf blower, I like it! And the zippy bags, good idea, too! And combat parking, also very useful...though my neighbors already think I’m a little extra aware and protective of the perimeter, but why not be? I only shovel where I’m walking up to car at first, not to compact any snow, then I clear the car top to bottom, pushing it to the less-used side of the driveway, then I shovel the driveway after, so I’m not doing it twice after clearing 10” of snow off the car. And I shovel a bit according to the forecast. If it’s going to warm up or get sunny, then it’s a minimal shoveling day, just enough to get in and out. What time and the sun will do for me, I do not do.

    I use a tarp for my windshield. Open the door put one side of the tarp in it and close the door, than pull the tarp over the windshield to the other side of the door, open that door tuck the tarp in it and close the door on the tarp . It works for me every time, even in icy weather! Also put the blades over the tarp to hold it better.

    My battery was at least 4 years old when the -20 finally did it. I was getting ready to take the battery out but my hood latch wouldn't budge. On my dodge the grille comes up with the hood so the release switch runs down the middle of the grille and is on the bottom. Because its right in plain sight, snow can easily blow onto it and pile up ice. When I finally managed to break the ice off the release rod.. The ice literally blew apart. Hahaha I'll never forget it, it was basically an explosion

    Could also close the ends of the garbage bags in the door, (along with dropping the wiper blades) to keep them from flying away in the wind. What about a wax or silicone coating on the windshield and windows for ice and snow, like with the snow shovel? Or does that go badly when the wiper blades go on, maybe leaving drag marks?

    Hello ChrisFix 👋🏻. I have an idea for a project car. Maybe you can buy a used 2018 Dodge Challenger/Charger (Scatpack 🐝) and Supercharge it, build race seats in, build it on lightweight and make ist look brand new again. Dodge Challenger/Charger are my favorite cars and you are my favorite YouTuber. 😉👋🏻

    This is a good video for beginners. It’s really good tips but I’ve been driving for ten years and here is how I prepare for winter for my 2010 Honda Accord 1. Buy 2 snow tires and put them in the front and old in the rear
    2. Get a shovel so when you get back home you have to shovel out a parking spot.
    3. Tape down your hand brake button so in case of emergency you can drift around your problem without worrying about hand brakes locking up ( yes my car is a Front drive )
    4. Go to Dunkin’ Donuts and get a large ice coffee with caramel swerl and cream no sugar because America runs on Dunkins
