rao Posted March 16, 2009 Share Posted March 16, 2009 So lately I have been considering actually driving my Legacy, but I am a little afraid because of the damage that could be caused. I see people drive other cars all of the time, but they aren't high performance machines like the Legacy, although I occasionally see a "sporty" car so you must be able to drive them, but maybe they don't really care about their cars' as much as I do Anyhow, the weahter here is going to be sunny and 60 today so that would seem to be a great day to take the car out and drive it. I typically keep it stored on jack stands so that the tires and suspension do not get :flat spotted", but they I read that could cause damage to the frame and to the bushings, so now I alternate daily between the stands and the ground, but I do rotate the tires a 1/4 turn each time so that do not get any uneven wear. I also read the start up causes the most engine wear, which is why I usually don't start the engine. how do you people handle that when you drive them? Can yo set a turbo timer so that the engine stays on all of the time? Can I use some sort of special oil to reduce engine wear? For the paint, I have it all covered with that blue painters' tape so that should be good - does anyone know if that alows the paint to breathe or does it trap moisture against the paint - that sounds bad For the windows I tried to get someone to come out and install that clear bras stuff on them, but they all said that was a little crazy, which I don't understand - how else can you protect the windows? I would appreciate any help with these issues, and I am sure there are some others that I must be missing or that you will point out to me. I'd really like to drive the car soon, if it takes too long to get ready, then the weather might not be ideal and I wouldn't even THINK about driving the car in non-ideal weather.
