[DML] Re: 3 Month Storage



Todd,

Check out www.drypak.com for your dessicant, but if you use one 
someone will have to dry it out occasionally.  Also DO NOT PUT 
MOTHBALLS in the car. I'm not sure if I will ever get the smell out 
of mine.  It has gone down some, but wow, you can still smell it 
from 20 feet away.  Don't fill the tank, just put some dry gas/fuel 
stabilzer in run it to get the stabilizer distributed, disconnect 
the battery, close it and cover it.  If you think it could be longer 
you may want to consider putting it up on jackstands, to unload the 
suspension.

three months, is there any preparation I should be doing for a semi 
long-term storage such as this.  I'm planning on filling up the gas 
tank to reduce condensation buildup, removing the battery, parking 
on a tarp to keep moisture off the underbody, covering the car with 
a breathable car cover, and heavily using good leather conditioner 
on the leather areas of the seats.  I would also like to place a 
desiccant inside to reduce moisture, but am not sure where to find 
one, any ideas?  Also note the car will be in a garage the entire 
time.  Does this sound like enough preparation?  Also, is there 
anything I should know about firing the car up when I get back?  
Other than squirting some oil in the cylinders.
