    • @Will Hutton I would just use flex seal to seal and repair it

    • How about how to fix a water leaking from the roof and staining the headliner? Would be a great quick video. I’ve got a leak from the top of the A-pillar on my Ridgeline. Apparently the sealant cracks over time and leaks whenever it rains or goes through the car wash. Seal with a weather proof rubber or silicone sealant and it’s good to go!

    • 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

  • I wouldn't recommend keeping the blades up sometimes the wind can blow it and itll snap onto the windshield cracking it.

  • 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 SEworldr. 😉👋🏻
