Okay, since I'm not getting the house I wanted to rent out (owners japped out...damn bastards! <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>) I'm getting a place that doesn't have a garage. It does however have a very large driveway that curves around in a circle, and goes behind the house. So, this winter, I'll be storing my car outside in the back. I've never stored a vehicle outside during the winter. The whole time I've been here in NY for college, I've stored my lowriders and stuff inside a heated garage.

So, my question is what do I have to do to safely store my car outside? I've always used real high quality covers. Should I put the car up on blocks, or put some kind of carpeting underneath it?

Or should I just pay to keep my car stored in one of those storage places? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanx! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hmm..well, I'm renting out a bay to do all my work to the car (paint, shaving, body kit, etc...) I'm just wondering what would happen if after when I'm done doing all the work, I stored it outside with a cover over it.

If it will indeed hurt the car, then yeah..I'll just rent out a storage place and keep it there.

Well...
What are the weather conditions where you live???
Does it get humid? Rain a lot? Snow?
Knowing this would help a lot.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

2klosho....I'd keep it in a garage. I take extrodinary good care of my car, however just from the weather conditions, I got a bit of acid rain etching and **** like that. If your car has never been in the snow...keep it that way. Rent out a garage at one of those storage depots. Take it out once a week to keep all the parts moving so you don't have any problems when winter is over. Cars covers don't work well. They still can let water in and then spot up the car. My friend starting leaving his cover off his GTI because the cover kept letting water underneath getting it dirty

I eat Honda Civics for breakfast, Toyota Corollas for lunch, and Volkswagen Jettas for dinner
