Anybody have any experience of storing a meth'd car in a mostly unheated garage for winter?

Actually, any winter storage tips in general would be appreciated, since I've never done this before I will be doing lots of cosmetic mods this winter, but have nothing mechanical planned until April.

Going beater shopping soon .. ha ha.

Once you go meth, you'll never go back

Which kit did you get?

Window tinting

Any one from Alberta with Windows tinted have any problems with the law?

I'm planning on getting 30% tint next week all around and wonder if I should reconsider.

Those of you who drive your car in the winter I guess it's almost time to put the winters on? Well if you have all seasons then can probably wait till min November but if your other set are summers then +7 or below they get hard like a puck.

I go some Hakkas and will probably put mine on mid October. The stock Eagle LS are ok. They didn't get good ratings by Tire Rack customers.

I think most people put their winters on around Halloween .. that's what I did last year.

I've driven my stock summer's in around 0oC (without ice), and they held up well. Also some light snow storms were no biggie when I first bought the car..

I have 28% on the sides and 15% on the back. I've been pulled over 3 times for windows alone since June.

First cop was kinda shady... he wanted ID from everyone in the car and he kept asking who's car it is (even though the registration clearly says my name), then he argued with me about how much I intended on drinking that night. Finally after realising he had nothing on me, he said my windows were "about 5% too dark"... I wanted to correct him so bad and tell him they're not supposed to be tinted at all (front windows) but I kept my mouth shut. He told me to go to the dealership (?!) and have the tint removed.

Second and third cops all said my windows are a little too dark for safety reasons and I need to get the tint removed as soon as I get a chance.

I'll just take my chances and get the 35% all around.

I'll just play dumb and say it's for my kids
