⛈ With another tropical storm/hurricane the horizon here are a few tips to protect your vehicle in heavy rain:
Rain
Rain may provide a calming ambiance, but when it comes to your car, it can wreak some major havoc. It’s not necessarily the rain that is the issue but rather all the other materials that are “re-activated” when wet or spit up onto your vehicle by the rain. Oil, dirt, high ph chemicals, acids, solvents, abrasive sand, and salt can end up on your vehicle. And when the water evaporates from the surface there is a HIGH likelihood those materials will be left behind in the form of the dreaded “water spots”! When the rain and all its evils hit, here’s how you can best protect your car from this weather.

Wash and wax
Take the proactive measure of washing and waxing, sealing, or coating your car. This serves to protect your car by creating a barrier between the car’s paint and the rain and dirt that is left behind. It will help release the dirt easily next time you wash and provide a sacrificial barrier to help protect the paint in the mean-time. Use only the best cleaning products possible to ensure you get the highly protective barrier you’re looking for. To avoid scratching it up even more, use a professional grade car wash mitt, as that will be the gentlest on your car while still removing dirt and grime.
Seal any openings
There are few things as detrimental to the interior of a car as water damage. Prevent rain from getting inside your vehicle by ensuring all openings are perfectly sealed. Check out the rubber linings on doors, and immediately repair any that become damaged. For any windows or sunroofs, always double-check that you completely close them—it’s all too easy to accidentally leave one open a crack.

:eek: Pertaining to the HTC, TOTM awards, I never received my certificates for March 2018, November 2018, and February 2020. I would love to add these to my other certificates.

My old computer went blue screen of death on me! The program I was using was on it and I lost the password key 32 digit key to use it again. The program cost me around $200 back when I got it so I didn’t buy it again. Trying to find another cheaper option just very busy lately!
