Trep going to storage....

I am going to park my trep in the garage soon for winter, but I want to make sure everything is set up how it should be for storage.
I know it needs to be started every so often, whats a good rule?
what about the just sitting in place? what can I do? I
am not sure how to lift the car in my small garage.....
I am going to get a dust cover. is there something I should do with the gas, oill, brakes, etc? I was told to put stabalizer in the gas, but how much gas? certain octain rating better?

please reply with any storage tips!

Thanks!

cool
anything that could be added to the list? (like it isnt long enuf already) or something that would be different? a better way perhaps?

what kind of moisture barrier could go between the floor and the car?

thanks gordo!

I would take atleast the subs out, you can leave the box and all the wires, but if I was you the sub and amp would go in the house.

Its not like getting the subs cold will hurt anything...unless you turn your system up after the cars been parked overnight and its like -10 out.

Wish I could store the Special for the winter. Don't got enough money to buy a winter beater, oh well. I'm getting some gnarly snow tires for my 16" steelies prolly tomorrow. *shakes fist at winter*

I am not sure I agree with the WD40 on the hinges. WD40 is technically a degreaser and not a lubricant. Some spray silicone or other grease would be much more appropriate.

I saw a commercial last night for something called "Sta-bil" which supposedly was good for storing vehicles etc.... Maybe check that out.

Ummmmmmm, you're storing a '94 3.3L? :p That's cool though, more power to ya!


I have a question. I use full synthetic oil for my Intrepid now. I'm overdue for an oil change though. Should I change my oil and then put the car away, or should I change my oil first thing in the spring? I don't wanna change it twice.
