over kill? nah... its what any nerd would do

So... car wouldn't start, but I have a solution.

It involves a 12v 370w electric engine block heater that will heat everything to 60 degrees, a 12v solar panel that generates power even in overcast skies, a charge controller, and some fancy rewiring.

When I'm done I'll have an engine block heater with a battery backup and a solar charger to keep the block heater from fully draining the battery.

Basically, I will be able to start my car in any cold and never have to worry about a dead battery again.

Ever.

It'll be great. Even in the event of a zombie apocalypse or a nuclear winter I will still be able to start my car.
