-40, and you just washed your car? Have fun opening the doors the next time you go out.
Just some amateur photographer advice, don't leave your headlights and fog lights on. Just parking lights. The bright headlights confuse the camera into thinking it'* "daylight" and you will get dark shots.
Looks good otherwise!

-40 is the best time to wash your car reason is everything is iced out so when you drive around your car will stay clean.... If you wash it when its a little warmer -15 and up by the time you drive home your car is dirty again from the slushy roads and the cars ahead of you...

As for the doors and windows freezing, its not a biggie... All you gotta do is open your doors 15 minutes after leaving the carwash once or twice and you're safe.... This way the water dries and stays as ice and your doors still function same as before... As for windows... Don't really care much they can freeze all they want hahaha

Thanks for the tips though I will keep that in mind for sure... Don't know much about cameras... All I know turn the power on go into auto mode and press the big button lol but hopefully soon I'll get a little better with your and everyone else'* help


Its just -30 to -55 about 3 or 4 months a year so if you wanna wait till it warms up you'll be waiting for quiet a while... And I hate keeping the big piles of snow between the wheels and all the salt on the car...


Thanks again everyone
