This thread is of intense interest to me. I will be "housing" my 1972 MGB in
the great-outdoors of either the uncovered parking lot of my apartment
complex in Laurel, Maryland or the covered, concrete-leaching parking lot (it
eats, with what appears to be acid rain, polycarbonate windows on my Jeep,
and leaves concrete-leavin's stains on the roof of the company 4-runner) at
work in Fairfax, Virginia.
What would work best under either condition? I have agreed to park the MG in
a drippy corner of the garage in case I go with option 2 (and park the Jeep
at the church next door when I come to work in order to compensate for the
crappy parking space I'd otherwise use). I will provide photos of covered
cars and company trucks and other lease-violating vehicles to my landlady
(who is very nice in person but sends letters written by the
Worst-Case-Landlord Kit at regular intervals) in the event I go with Option
Whaddaya think? An "instant garage" isn't an option in either case, and I am
aware of condensation issues given a car cover (I hope to drive it enough to
reduce the concern). What would YOU do in this situation?
Oh, by the way, option 3 is to leave it in the concrete-floored, weathertight
barn it sits in for now and go visit it and my friend, its current owner,
once in a while. Truth be told I'm leaning towards option 3, if my friend
will put up with it. We already have put a top and an oil cooler on and in
it, respectively. Fuel pump is next.
...But it's THERE and not HERE.
