    I never thought of that. Probably would work but I've decided to just clean the car via spray cleaner and rags from now on.

    I use a leaf blower & silicone squeegee. Leaf blower is about the best way to get water out of the grille / taillights / side mirrors.

    Are those switches the readily available narrower switches?

    No, they are the regular sized ones.

    Back into winter storage she goes.




    New storage buddy this year, my 2002 BMW 325i Touring.







    I measured ahead of time, and knew it was going to be a tight squeeze. I've got about 2 inches to the rear wall, 3 inches between cars and about 6 inches to the garage door.

    It was tempting to put it away yesterday but decided to wait a couple more weeks.

    Did you guys get much snow on Halloween? We got blasted with like 3 inches and they dumped a bunch of salt on the roads. It really sucks because it all melted and the weather is suppose to still be in the mid 40's and low 50's for the next few weeks. It would have been nice to get one last drive in for the year.

    Not really, it stayed just north of us. I drove through it heading north to work Tuesday morning. The stretch between Tomah and Black River Falls had serious black ice on Bridges.

    Not yet winter in Kansas City so I addressed a couple of small issues -

    1) I have the Redline Goods black leather shift boot mounted on a DPI boot frame. The leather is really nice and high quality but for some reason the top opening is too big to be retained by the flange built into the shift lever. For now, the leather is stiff enough where it mostly stays up and in place but I am sure as it wears in it will keep sliding down. I bought a leather sewing kit with black waxed thread and cinched up the top of the boot so it stays in place under an M8 washer, the nut, and the shift ball. Now it's perfect!

    2) Finally added a fire extinguisher to the car. I bought a H3R 2.5 lb halon extinguisher from Summit. At first I considered just leaving it between the passenger seat and door sill, and then considered mounting it above my subwoofer box behind the driver seat, before finally deciding to just leave the damn thing on the floor behind the seat. Hopefully never have to use it!
