This Week in The Garage
Well, another week goes by.............................
Still mostly in the house..................................
Now I understand why dogs run out of the front door when it opens.
O.K. back in the garage.
Last week we made sure that you are not driving around on dangerous tires.
This week you don't even need to get the kneeling pad, but you should get your flashlight and your reading glasses if needed.
Now, before I begin, I am told that most every Corvette that I meet "has never seen rain". While I understand the sentiment, I almost feel sorry for both the car and the driver when this is actually true. I myself once would never even lower the lift if storms were anywhere east of the Mississippi, but I digress. Regardless of whether it happens purposely or accidentally, it will occasionally happen. Anyone who has been to Corvettes at Carlisle or A Day at the Beach Show on the Boardwalk would know about getting caught in the rain unexpectedly, which brings me to my point. When was the last time that you carefully looked at your wiper blades? If you cannot remember, then head out to the garage right now. I am sure you know where they are, but lets try to carefully lift them up and take a close look at them. I say try to lift them up as on more than one occasion, I have found cars where the blades were actually stuck to the windshield. When you pull the blade away from the windshield does the actual wiping part of the blade hold its shape perpendicular to the glass, or is it fatigued and permanently bent at an angle? If it is too weak to maintain it's shape, replace it. If it's shape looks good, but the blade feels rigid and hard, replace it. If it has any tears of any kind replace it. If, when in use, they smear or squeal, replace them. It does not really matter what brand of replacement blades that you buy. Buy the ones that you believe to be the best. Don't forget to record the date and mileage in your car file.
Now, if you ever should get caught in the rain, you will be confident that your wipers will preform as good as your car!
Now treat yourself to a Quarantini or two!
