We had lots of car shows this summer. I was going to put my Jeep in a couple of them but they all happened on a Saturday when I work.

Yeah, most shows do happen on Saturdays. We had one in the park the other day that was on a Sunday. First one like that in years

So October/Winter maintenance has started.
Oil change, lube, diff, transfer case, tranny and all other fluids checked.
Filled the window washer reservoir.
Charged up the battery for my impact and little jump box I carry.
Lock-Ease in the locks. Some white lithium for the hood release.
Scrapers, brush, etc put in the car.
Still need to power wash underneath and Fluid Film.
Quick detailing of the exterior too.

Coming up on my 3rd tire rotation for the KO2's. 5k/yr for 3yrs. I love knowing I've gotten that many years out of them and still have a ton of tread.

Sound like you do yours once a year like me.
Every April, thinking they are 5 years old, and
probably only 3K on the rotation.

Required 5k rotation as per my Costco warranty. I've been about 11 months at a time consistently

Used it to move fallen trees from a storm to the burn pile.

So more October/Winter maintenece.
The underside of the Jeep is now all nice and shiny. Well as nice and shiny as she will get.
I love my little powerwasher but the one thing I never liked is how the container is set up to use a cleaner.
Thinking this is the same set up with most home versions.
Awhile back somebody posted that the cheapo $15 paint sprayer at Harbor Freight can be used to apply Fluid Film.
So I grabbed one. Never got a chance to try it because I ended up buying a bigger boy compressor and the Fluid Film gun kit.
So it occured to me to use it to apply Purple Power and then just hose it off with the pressure washer.
Seemed to work pretty good for it.
So going to blow off as much water as I can off with my compressor and hopefully everything will be dry so I can apply Fluid Film tomorrow.
