I'll be removing the car from insurance as of the beginning of october. What do i need to do to keep it from fritzing out. unfortunatly, i dont' have a garage, so i HAVE to get a car cover. Do i have to really do anything or just cover it and let it go for 6 months?

well, here's a basic prep list for winter storage.
1. Cut up pieces of carpet or rubber to prevent flatspotting your tires
2. Stabil in your tank and make sure your tank is full
3. Change your oil and put fresh oil in
4. unplug your battery to prevent it from discharging, bring it in and put it on a trickle charger
5. Get some moisture absorbtion packs and leave them in your interior
There are some other things but they're kind of minor

if you have synthetic oil you shouldnt have to change it, if you were to put new oil in , youd feel you would have to change it when you take it out of storage, but i can see why you would want fresh oil in there .... idk

You HAVE to keep a charger on the battery unless you have an Optima type. A maintainer type charger will trickle charge it if you can't be there to take care of it yourself. Definetly disconnect it. Make sure to tie the cover on good-they are easily blown off.

I don't know if this is true, but i heard a cover can actually be bad for a car because even the breathable ones lock in moisture. But this could be totally wrong, just what a friend told me that has a 66 charger and no garage.

i wouldnt cover a car outside because the wind will whip the cover and scuff the paint/ been there done that
