Winter Hibernation

It's been a great run but time to put the beast away for the winter. Looking forward to being back on the streets in the spring.

That's just what I did on the weekend. I like your cover.
It was sad. I'll have to get a pic of the sleeping beast.

Getting up on the FlatStoppers was tricky, my garage is really tight. Have to get it rolling just fast enough to get on so that all get centered.

No mice, no possible way something could damage the car, protect it better.

Thanks. I got my cover from ShopChevyParts.com. It is hard to make out in the picture but it has little ZL1 logos in a checkered pattern. It fit really nice and is perfect for indoor storage.

I lined up the Flatstoppers while my wife drove the car up onto them. She pulled up on them a little to slow and ended up spinning the back tires before it dropped into the groove. Thankfully they didn't slip a bit on the floor.

My battery tender is an Optima 400 charger. I just connected to the battery cables under the hood. The same place you would use for jump starting. It is a really nice setup and includes a bracket for wall mounting and it works on both AGM and standard batteries.

I use the flatstoppers as well. I spun the tires once too. But there is a little trick to using then you have to line them up against the tires and back up about 18" and then go foward just fast enough to get up and over.

...what's up with the bag and store stuff, it ain't a boat in the backyard for cryin' out loud.....to each his own. I'll drive mine if it's above 40 degrees in the winter, with dry and clear road conditions whenever I get some free time to do so.

This is exactly what I plan to do this winter except I won't have to wait for temps to get above 40. Just had my winter wheels put on today.

Here's the thread I posted when I bought everything back in August.

Man, you can't appreciate how hard the Goodyears get when it's cold until you put on a tire specifically made for cold weather.

Man I couldn't imagine the pain of having to put my Camaro away for 6 months at a time. Where I'm from cold weather is a dip in the 50's.
