    My cars is washed once a year at max. At the end of March/beginning of April, if we had a winter, and there was salt on the roads.

    This year there was no winter. Only covid19.

    I've never heard of nor had any instances of birds (much less crows) pecking at car windows. Simply wild.

    Got any pictures of this? A video would be tops.

    Just mount a bunch of big snow blowers to the front bumper, it'd come in handy if you ever come across rioters("protesters")

    My small town is chalk full of the 65+ crowd... not sure the hippie generation does much beyond garden these days.

    Talking about snowblowers, my MTD is a 28 incher.. the chute mechanism is stupid on mine, the motor etc. pretty darn sweet. You want to go big or go home if you buy a snowblower.

    From the looks of these comments I wont get flamed from the detailing freaks, but the best $12/month subscription I have is at the local car wash. I can go every day if I like, and they have free vaccuums and an automatic floormat cleaner.

    Really nice for a lazy SOB

    I changed my windshield sprayers to a fan-type instead of a dual squirter, I got the part at Autozone and it took about 10 minutes to put in.

    Have to remove the hood insulation (mine never went back on), and a 5/16 lock nut of the right thread pitch will work to secure them (included hardware sucks), 1/2 inch deep socket is needed as well to bolt everything down.

    I also put sequential smoked fender signal lights on last week as well.

    Waiting for LED everything else to upgrade in the near future.....Gonna see how terrible WISH is.....

    Well, this is something I would never even think of! What are the benefits of fan sprayers?

    They cover the windshield in washer fluid WAY more thoroughly, so if you're out and about in the winter with salt spray, the windshield cleans WAY easier with less fluid. Saves a couple cents...

    Plus I'm just picky and like them better.

    Sounds good to me! I don't deal with salt and snow, but it seems like it would do better with all the damn pollen!
    Thanks

    Do you know the actual ones you installed?
