Circumstances dictate that I store my T under a carport.
Fortunately, it has two sides.
Even so, it has been a tough winter here in Pennsylvania.
The current cover is nearing its usefulness. Is there a recommended cover?
I tarp mine with bungees.
California Car Cover Company makes an outdoor cover called "Stormweave". Pricey, but good.
Make sure you do some form of animal control especially if you have chipmunks in the area.
BROOKS,be carefull, wind will blow the tarp and cause scuff marks to the paint. if you have something soft to cover first will prevent this problem.good luck.GREG.
I shrink wrap my 11 when I travel with it on an open trailer. I cover it with cheap harbor freight furniture pads and then shrink wrap. Never had a problems. I travel great distances.
Richard Moore, where do you get your shrink wrap and what do you use for heat to shrink it? That sounds like a pretty good idea. Jim
Harbor freight or any warehouse supply
A car cover for softness is good and the more expensive ones are water proof too but a custom cover for a T can also be expensive. Some have said that a cover for a Bronco works well on a Tudor or Fordor and maybe even a touring with the top up, but you will probably still want to use a tarp in severe weather.
For just weather protection, you are lucky if a blue tarp lasts more than a couple of months and a silver one maybe lasts a year. I have found recycled billboards made from vinyl will last several years. Search the web for recycled billboards and you will find several sites offering them in several sizes usually for far less than a similar sized silver tarp. I have paid anywhere from $15 to $39 for a 10 x 20 billboard and a similar silver tarp is around $60.
Don't know what your budget is but check out CarCapsule. They make an outdoor heavy duty bubble. Dual fans keep the cover off the car and it is critter proof. There official website will give all the details. Mark Strange mentioned a company earlier in the posting called California car covers. It could be the same as what I'm describing. And as he said very expensive, but an excellent product. Lets say you'd be in the $700.00 range.
I believe Richard is using the stretchy, Saran wrap type shrink wrap. More commonly called Cling wrap when used in the kitchen. It comes on large rolls in different widths and no heat required. One bad thing about using it when driving highway speeds, it shreds like heck and I didn't have much left when I got the TT home. BTDT
Find a little old lady or little old man who is no longer driving and see if you can rent garage space from them.
Ask older folks in the neighborhood if they have space to rent or if they have friends or relatives that have something available. Church is also a great place to ask older folks if they have garage space available.
Many thanks, guys! Leave it to the forum for such great advice!
Is there a local historical society, business or public building who would like to have it for a display for a few months?
Why not just put tarps over the two open ends of the carport and make a temporary garage. That way nothing is rubbing against the paint and if you need to work on it a small kerosene heater works wonders in the enclosure. I enclose my mothers carport in the fall and store all her lawn furniture, BB-Q grill, and misc items. In the spring I just take the tarps down and she has her carport again. Since I do it every year I bought heavy duty tarps and I have hooks installed on the side walls and all I do is hook the eyelets of the tarp on the hooks secure the lower half with weights.
