The winter is right around the corner and I am about to put the lowrider away until spring. Is there any precautions I should take? The car is going to be in my garage. Should I do anything about my wheels, pumps, and batteries? It gets very cold in Michigan. Thanx for any advice.

Mine is garaged, I live in upstate ny, I feel ya. I'd just take your batts out of the car by Dec 1st, or so. put them in your basement or a ventilated room in your house. put them on boards of wood, and keep um trickle charged at least once a month, so they stay good and in case ya need them for a move of the vehicle. hydros will be fine, keep gas in your tank, always 1/2 or better, and make sure car is started at least every week or two weeks. leave like a light syn. oil in your motor, 10w30 or so , nothing heavier. light oil warms up faster. hope I've been of some help, later

Get that car out of the garage, increase tire pressure, increase accumulator pressure and keep rolling. :thumbsup:

Beginner rule #1- leave the car pancaked the whole time. I see people leaving their shit up for weeks at a time and wonder why they have oring problems.

But would drive it, I always did. Gold Daytons and all ;) :)

Thanx for the advice fellas.

Detroit roads are terrible to drive on in regular conditions, I don't wanna try with snow and ice all over! The roads don't get plowed too often. Damn Mayor!

You should have been in NH the first 3 months of this year. Snowed damn near every day in January. Nothing like getting to work in the snow and pancaking your shit. Then when you open your door, I'm sure from above i looks like your lo-lo is making a snow angel. :)

If you have a show car with a chrome undercarriage, fine by me. But like I've said many times in the past, if I can't drive my car any where, any time... I don't want it.

Mine is garaged, I live in upstate ny, I feel ya. I'd just take your batts out of the car by Dec 1st, or so. put them in your basement or a ventilated room in your house. put them on boards of wood, and keep um trickle charged at least once a month, so they stay good and in case ya need them for a move of the vehicle. hydros will be fine, keep gas in your tank, always 1/2 or better, and make sure car is started at least every week or two weeks. leave like a light syn. oil in your motor, 10w30 or so , nothing heavier. light oil warms up faster. hope I've been of some help, later
I agree with you, but the only thing is, you dont have to have your batteries on boards. Unless your putting them on carpet or something and your worried about acid getting on it ;)

If I take out my batteries when they are fully charged and store them in a safe place, will they stay charged?
