It’s about that time of year: the time when it becomes necessary to put away your fun warm weather sports car until sunnier and drier days come back around. But tucking your toy away for its long winter’s nap isn’t just as simple as pulling it into your garage or storage, turning off the lights, locking the door and walking away. You need to prepare your car properly before you store it to make sure that you find it in the same condition you left it in when Spring finally rolls around.
Stale fuel, ozone damaged rubber, dust, moisture, and even insects and rodents are all possible threats while your baby hibernates, and even in places where it’s possible to drive a nice car year-round, we all still have to park our treasures for extended periods now and again. A little preparation can save a whole lot of repair and restoration once it’s time to hit the road again.
