Home Depot,

4 4X4s, some 2X4s and a couple 4X8s and you have a makeshift a frame and covered car. Use some thick mil plastic for both ends and its complete.

Yes.................If you have to leave it outside, better not to cover it. If you want to cover it, keep the covering away from the body. That way, the aior circulates and you won't get the condensation building up.

Harbor Freight has a "Portable Garage" on sale for $159.99 until November 1st after that it goes back up to $269.99. I wouldn't count on it lasting forever but that is just my personal opinion.

Cool I had a friend that went to school in Georgetown . I ve been to Toronto few times but just to really go to the airport or go right threw. But a buddy and i went down to buy a truck so we had to take my 4x4 (its all i had at the time) and we had to go right threw .. Jane and finch!!!!! Man o man i just looked straight ahead , turned the music off and didn't make eye contact! I can hold my own in a scap but i had no idea what kind of stuff the guys on the street were packen. We make it home fine but my 4x4 was blowen the heat like a sob to keep the motor alive and the chunky 33's were just a howlen.

I bought a 10X20 canopy from Wall Mart earlier this year and then bought the sidewall enclosure kit from harbor freight the other day. Looks cool....but even though it's not remotely airtight, it gets a lot of condensation on the inside roof and walls.Thinking of setting up a fan to keep the air circulating to help prevent it. The other thing to consider is that they DON'T recommend leaving it up during winter do to snow and ice storms. I'm going to just try to stay ahead of the snow during storms.
