Thanks - I may take my lug nuts off one at a time and smear a little anti-seize on the studs as well. Then use the ole torque wrench to tighten to spec torque - which is 79 to 94 lb-ft. Do it once and never have to worry about it again.Now that's "PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE! " A lost art! Congratulations!
It just dawned on my that pollen wont be an issue on my car. It's YELLOW! Just kidding - But have you thought about the Meguire's Ceramic Wax? I put it on my car the day after I bought it since it wouldn't be any cleaner... Looks great and water beads like crazy. It also gets a car wash every time it rains due to the ceramic. I had this on my Stinger and it works like a champ!So today, I took my car to a DIY car wash for the first time ever. She was almost Caked with yellow tree pollen. It's a spring thing around here! So I needed the Soapy Brush and the pressure wash, to get it clean.
Then I brought her back home, made up a bucket of hot soapy water and got out an old washcloth and went over every little nook and cranny, like around the doors, and the door sills. I also vac'ed out the driver's compartment. I've not done all that since I've had the car, so she was due.
I wanted her to look her best, because tomorrow I'm taking her to my Kia Dealer to have a new smoked plastic Hood Protector put on. They owe me a favor, so they're doing the install for FREE.
Even if it does rain, it will still be a good day.
