    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!!!

    A square clear plastic lens from a welding hood is the best ice scraper that you'll ever use, they'll cut through ice that the regular scrapers just skip across.

    While I was growing up my parents took all our vehicles into the driveway and as close to the house as possible. First car gets backed in and the next one gets parked up close to the front bumpers to help keep the engines warm as long as possible. Some of us had different schedules that helped keep most of the heat in and some of the snow off. One side had less to clean off because of the house. Less scrapping too

    Rain-X Treated windows are easier to clear snow and Ice off of. Its something i noticed a few years ago and it works. I always treat the windows late Fall for Winter. For me, most of the time i have time to warm the car up, but ive scraped and gone with a lot less effort on treated windows.

    I live in germany and generally speaking, we dont get too much snow in the south. last year we moved to a hilly area tho, temperatures are considerably lower, there´s way more snow, etc. I have never understood just how convenient the winter-package offered for cars is, until this year. I have a Seat Mii, an Eco-box based on a VW Up, the winterpack cost, whoever got the car new, some decent extra money so it seemed excessive but Frozen mirrors? heated. Cold butt? heated. Engine cold? someone fit a coolant preheat in it. yes really, in a small ecobox. its just insanely convenient.

    Purchase a small plastic ice scraper without a brush for $2-3 or on clearance in the spring for like $1 or less when your wheel wells get packed with snow use it to clear it from your wheel liners trying to avoid your painted bumper covers, body or flares this will also prevent excess water in your garage if you have one available which can refreeze after melting do you rears and for your front wheels turn start your car and turn your steering wheel lock to lock get the front of one side and the rear of the other fender and switch wheel direction. if your car has unpainted textured bumper covers like 93-04 Grand Cherokee's give it a swift kick with your boots and a-lot of snow will drop.

    Hey ChrisFix! I just wanted to let you know that your videos inspired me to fix up my 1997 Ford Mustang! Just got done installing new spark plugs, spark plug wires, a new coil pack, and I even wired some exterior LED lights with a switch under my hood to give me extra light to work on my stang into the night. I am only 20 years old and have never known these skills before watching your videos. It is a great feeling to learn from you and then to put what you teach into practice. Starting up my mustang after installation was an amazing feeling! Thanks!

    Better reason for backing cars and trucks into anparkong space, same reason why emergency services does it. Ypu don't have an emergency when parking at the end of the day,, but if you have an emergency at home like a family member injured, you can safely exit the parking quickly.
