Default What did you do to your C3 today?

Do any of you guys/gals modify or maintain your C3 yourself?

Made sure the battery tender charger was still showing a green light.Its under its cover and will not see any action for another 3-4 months at least.

The majority are undercover and charging now, a lucky few have the right conditions to enjoy. Winter is the season for mods. I hope to hear stories of modifications and maintenance. To all C3 owners, I salute you as you have the body style that intrigued me as a kid and led me to Corvettes today!

Speaking of battery tenders... Seems my old CTEK is on the fritz. I hook it up to the battery and the power light comes on, but the mode button does nothing and the damn thing never charges.

Is there a more reliable brand of battery tender out there? What do y'all use?
