how do you determine if a garage is safe though? if its away from your house, who knows who's watching it?

I have the same problem, I leave the cover on when its been raining (or snowing), take it of when im going for a drive but then I dont want to put it in the boot as I dont want to get the boot wet so end up having to put it indoors in the bath to drip dry. Its not ideal. A solution as per your link would be great, but im not sure if it would not attract more unwanted attention with passers by curious as to whats underneath.

The only solution: Move to house with a nice big heated double garage (i can dream)!

or a cheap alternative, build a double garage.





wait for it





put the car in one side, live in the other side, sell the house. kerching:thumbsup: cars always safe and dry, and you have loads of cash left over from the sale and no mortgage. happy days, i see no downside.:D

Garage or lockup is the only way really. I rent a garage at £45/month and then over winter change to a local car storage company and use their de-humidified storage at £80/month.
