    Unheated garage here in chilly DC and I won't do anything in there unless its at least 60 degrees. BTW, What is the scientific reason that tires with a slow leak deflate faster in cold weather?

    The air that is in them now is known as "summer air" (from the Greek work "Sumiar"). The summer air is more dense than the winter air in it's current environment creating a mild vacuum in the pores of the tire rubber. As the temps drop and the summer air shrinks it finds places to seep through these vacuum leaks into the lower pressure outside environment. When Obama's EPA air quality laws went into effect in 2011, the summer air found itself alienated in this new environment, so the white wall became a barrier to prevent summer air from being truly free until Trump redacted those laws last month which finally gave freedom to the air and allowed it to cross uninhibited. Expect more air to escape to freedom in the coming weeks.

    -10F this AM


    Here's a pic of my car, and what I've been doing with it since I put it away in Rocktober:

    I started it today to warm it up for an oil change. I'm also making a video of it running before removing the converted intake [that I'm going to be listing for sale.]

    Yes, and yes...haha!

    I have a propane wall heater but I only turn it on a day before I'll be in the garage (with the setting on low,) and I run my car a while to generate some heat. It was ~50F in my garage before running the car.....quickly dropped to 37F when I opened the garage door.

    This Southern cold streak has been brutal; I moved down here to get away from that sort of thing. Damn South...
