What did you do with your Compass today?

These threads are the most popular on other sites, so let's try it here. Mods, wheeling, road trip or just a wash and polish? Let's see a pic or two....

I swapped my winter rims back to my summer ones, using the scissor jack from the trunk - glad I got seperate rims not just tires, now I can do it myself every year, saving $50 or so each time

Next it needs another a wash!

Yeah I post to one of these on another site all the time.
You need a jack to make that a little quicker.
Well it wasn't today but will post what I did last weekend just to get this started.

Changed PTU and rear diff fluid with Valovine conventional 80W-90.
Change oil and filter, Quaker State High-Mileage 5W-20 and Fram filter.
Drain and filled radiator (broke drain plug, DON'T TAKE IT OUT) with Zerex G-05.

Yeah now I've done it once, I'll get a trolley jack and maybe axle stands over the summer, it was hard work!

Cleaned out my car and organized it. I typically have to keep a lot of gear in it for work at all times so its always a challenge.

Not today but yesterday drove from Montreal to Niagara Falls (ON), took $62 to fill up (used to take $45 to fill the Patriot, gas prices suck!!!) - haven't worked out mpg yet but did around 650km on tank

No issues driving except wind noise was noticeable as it was through the night and my son/fiancée were sleeping! Also it wants to drive at 90kph when loaded, too slow!

So I worked out my mpg was 22.5 for the journey there, fully loaded doing around 100kph. Fuel hasn't run low yet so don't know my return mpg. Average of all my recorded mpg's is 22.8 over 9800km

Just realized I should have plasti-dipped my wheels before putting them back on, perfect time to have done it!

Went to Canadian Tire and bought a jug of Platinum synthetic on sale for $25
and waxed the front part hood and rear with Nufinish will do the doors maybe tomorrow. I also put in 36 psi up from 32 psi to see how it handles and maybe get better mileage, what do you guys run for tire pressure?

Fitted my roof rack cross bars, in prep for the Rola basket

Got them from eBay, I've been looking for flush towers not overhanging bars, they're Chinese but I like them. More pics in the gallery

Looks good! I am a big fan of the 2011- roof racks. Can you set them at four different slots like the pre 2011 ones? I wonder if they would fit a "classic" compass (oooooooohhh)... the clasps look similar.
Nice lookin! So.. when are you gonna plasti coat ur rims again?

Thanks both!

On the 11's you can't move the bars, which might look odd with the rola basket but i hope not

The rims would be this weekend but my son is sick in hospital so it will have to wait a while

Sorry to hear that dude. Kids in hospital is no fun at all. At least you have your priorities right. But, Your compass is gonna look awesome with the blacked out grille/wheels and the basket on top!

Our boys' back to 100% now, they were worried it was menigitis but was most likely mono

So today I swapped back to my winters and prepped the alloys (with the help of my beautiful and understanding wife!) for plasti-dipping tomorrow

Put on some blind spot mirrors to see if it helps, not driven it to test them yet
