That last picture, where you can see the mag fan installed, was taken before the original Nashfan prototype was made. The first 2 pictures, yes the Nashfan is on it just wasn't in the field of view. Here's a more current shot taken of the engine

Over the weekend i replaced the battery tray in my ugly rampy. It was mostly gone! Found a perfect rust free original and gave it a good coat before install.
Also found a NOS set of taillight lenses for it so installed those. Also put in some time smoothing the corners of quarter panels below the lights.

Yesterday I built a temporary shelter for my 1965 Monza convertible and got it ready to put the car away for the winter.

The wood strips you see are spaced so the tires will rest on them so they are held in place. You may notice eye hooks at the ends of each board.
This is so I can run straps as needed to help keep the shelter securely in place when it gets breezy out there.

Here is the car getting put away for the winter.
It is wearing it's new car cover then put in it's new Car Bag/Car Jacket-
There are desiccant packs in and under the car inside the bag to help keep moisture out. I also disconnected the battery as a precaution.

If I had to guess, I would say, it looks like a ShelterLogic brand.
Here is a link. > > > ShelterLogic's Website < < <
They are available at some big box's like Home Depot sometimes.

Shelter Logic is a better choice than the Harbor Freight.

Because you can get replacement covers for SL but not HF.

I'm in the process of installing the second cover on my SL.

This time I picked the second level of canvas thickness.

The "Garage" I bought is 10'W by 15'L and is a Shelter Logic brand that I got at my local Tractor Supply store for $299.00.
I paid another $60.00 for a very heavy thick 12'X16' truck tarp to put on the ground.
The Car Bag/Jacket sells for about $290.00 but I found this new one on e-bay and got it for $220.00 delivered.
The car cover was another $225.00

In all it cost me just over $700.00 to store the car for the winter.
With some luck, I'll get more than one season out of the Garage or maybe get my new building up by next winter.
I have a contractor coming out in the next few days to look at the spot I want to put it.

That shouldn't be a problem, the ShelterLogic tarps are much more rugged that the ones from Costco/Harbor Freight.
We had a ShelterLogic at the Marina that stood for several years.
I have not worked since the Governor shut the state down, but the last time I drove by, it was still standing.
It is the Silver colored tarp.
Not sure if that makes it more heavy-duty or not, just noting that it is slightly different than your tan one.

Shelter Logic offers several replacement cover options for their products. These prices do NOT include a frame.

Standard is referred as the Polyethylene 5.5 oz. cover in "Sandstone" for $149.99 which is most likely what comes standard for the one I purchased.

Also available are the Heavy Duty PVC 14.5 oz. covers in Gray, Tan, or White for $475.99

And the Ultra Duty PVC 21.5 oz. version in Green or White for $655.99

For now I am happy with what I got and will see how well it lasts.
