Staying cooped up at home during this pandemic might not be the best for your sanity, but it does have its advantages. For instance, you now have all the time in the world to double down in looking after that prized set of wheels sitting in your garage.
The pandemic is the perfect opportunity to work on your car at home
But what if you decide you want a dash cam, you’ve run out of car shampoo, or your car antenna suddenly broke and you need a replacement? Quarantine regulations in your area might not allow you to venture out to your nearest auto parts and supply store.
