    Wow, its fucking cold here (central texas) but nothing has frozen yet...

    Hey, have you seen the new buicks?? They shoot steam/heated water from the wipers to melt away ice. Cool shit, even if it is on a shitty grandma car.

    And people thought I was a fruitcake attending my survivalist camps. HAH.


    I love the cold - like B said, I would rather be outside in tons of clothes working than outside in a wife beater sweating my ass off.

    That really doesn’t make to much since, you would think they would use some sort of de-icer. Warm water will just freeze faster.. ?

    ya know, i've lived in new england my entire life... have been through countless snow storms, blizzards, ice storms, and cold weather...

    but i have NEVER ripped a wiper blade off.

    i sense user error.

    just like when VA gets a dusting of snow... everything closes.

    95% of the rust on rear quarters is not from salt or sand...

    its from the water drains the run along the roof get clogged with something... leaves, debris, etc... and it ends up holding the water in the drain, eventually rusting out where they exit--- right in the rust spot.

    either you have one hell of an overpowered wiper motor or you have some shitty ass blades

    i've had the wipers frozen to the windshield before and it won't even come close to ripping the blades

    bah, the drain theory holds some water but i would say the majority of rear quarter rust, and rear wheel well rust can be explained by two things...

    the rear wheel well's on hondas come with a shitty plastic protective strip... worst design ever
    this strip holds water and debris up against the metal, it never gets a chance to dry out and rusts...

    the rear quarters can be explained by debris, and drivers failing to clean their cars well enough
    they get a buildup inside that also traps water against the metal leading to untimely demise due to rust...

    they was also a rumor of honda cutting costs in the mid to late 80's by using recycled metal, which, according to the rumor will rust faster than non recycled metal...

    and there's also the rumor about salt from ocean water clinging to the vehicles as they travel on a transport ship from japan to the US, but i think this is pure BS

    And ocean/road salt has a MAJOR effect on cars. Thats why when you get a car thats more than a couple of years old from up north the undercarriage is all rusted out. That just doesn't happen in central Texas. Not even on hondas.
