For some people, winter either never really happens or maybe it’s just a really short blip on the radar. Some of us haven’t even thought about digging out yet. Either way, it’s never too early to think about what you'll need to do once your hot rod gets pulled out of storage.
Everyone should have a list of things that they do to their classic each year. On that list should be brake fluid maintenance. Most classic cars utilize (and we recommend) either a Dot 3 or Dot 4 brake fluid in the system. These types of fluids are hydroscopic, which is a fancy way of saying they will allow absorption of moisture (it happens in all brake systems, so don’t worry about it). All fluids falling into this category are made with rust inhibitors to help fight this. But because this happens, we recommend changing your brake fluid at least every two years. With a car in storage, we recommend annual brake fluid maintenance.
