I touched my AOC drain plug, and decided not to change it when doing a trans drain/fill. I was on a hill on ramps at too steep of an incline to change it.1

Test driving my 2001 S60 after finishing up my front LCA replacements. I don't like driving in the dark to begin with, so I wasn't going to take it out after a big job like that.

Washing the greasy hand prints off of it that keep adding up the more I work on my S60.

We have similar to Denver....freeze-thaw, freeze-thaw. 35/25 day/night. So more ice than packed snow.

I am guilty of having some older snow tires on and just running them all summer to use them up. Wiggly soft tires when it's warm, but...
Must be the polar vortex thing.. masses of cold air alternate with masses of warmer air, all spinning around the north pole like fan blades... usually with quick temperature changes and high winds.

Speaking of winter tires, I learned driving in a northern city of Canada on a Chevrolet Caprice, rear traction with worn 'all terrain' tires. Each turn was fun indeed. And the slightest incline would require driving backwards

I lived where studded tires or chains were mandatory to even drive on some of the main roads, so when I moved back to Ohio I left my studded snow tires on until almost all of the studs were either worn all the way down or had been thrown from the tires, at least two straight years. When I had new tires put on, the place I went to acted like they'd never seen studded tires before and kept them for display.

Finding a place on my car to put these stickers that FCPEuro sent me with my last order. Too cold out to do much of anything.

Tool box stickers? I got one of these and also Pelican Parts sticker recently. Must be the new thing.

I asked if I could get a second set for symmetry but they didn't have any more.

Is that what they're for, my tool box? I'd rather put them on my car windows. They're not decals, but they're sticky.

Just the normal day-night temp swing here in the winter.
