Been away for most of August in Europe and just catching up. Love the 1954’s Batman imitation!

Changed the coolant and oil on the '54. Tanked filled and stabil treated. Probably get a couple more drives out of this season. But otherwise ready for its winter nap.

I'll be following suit on mine shortly. Driving season is quickly coming to an end.

How often are you changing your coolant?

Every few years. Mostly to keep the rust inhibitors good. Also, the garage here can keep into the 20s then it's sun-zero outside for multiple days.

It occurred to me this morning I should probably flush the brake fluid, as it has been a couple of years. So, I am sure the fluid is probably less than pristine.

That will be a project for some day this week after work. I can also adjust the brakes while under there, as it hasn't been done since I was in California.

Brake fluid changed. Old fluid was cloudy, but not horrible (see pic). Also adjusted the brakes. The fronts needed some adjustment, rears almost none.

Also checked the Diff fluid level while back there. It was still full.

With that, I think the fall maintenance is done.

Nicely done Kev. I'll be due to replace my brake fluid here in the next year or two. Been two years so far.

Good job! Of course the fronts do most of the stopping so no surprise that they needed more adjustment than the rears. Is that standard brake fluid?
