How do I keep a garage dryer? Sign In

Hi everyone,

I bought one of those cheap portable garages, at least it keeps my car from being rained on directly but the problem is condensation drips from the roof and water comes up through the ground. If I look under my car after it has rained I will see little droplets even though I havn't driven the car anywhere. Someone told me to get a large plastic sheet to put on the ground but I'm not sure where to find this at the home depot. Anyone have advice? Thanks

Sounds like you have a terrarium going on with this. This is not helping the stored car a bit. If you can't put this on concrete or asphalt, I would try a tarp and that should help as it would tolerate being driven on longer than just plain plastic, T

Alright I'll do that. THanks. By the way, do you have a 67 fleetwood?

No more Fleetwood. Just a memory. Got into Lincolns and restored a 1969 but the truth is I didn't like the car!! I did sell it of course at a disgusting loss which is about normal but the details are a passion.

Right now I drive around in a 1989 Town Car and own three -- two are mint and I love to drive the beat up old one as if if gets another door ding it would just give it more carachter and people are rude in public parking areas here and elsewhere and just don't respect other cars.

I'd buy a 67 Fleetwood but that would mean intense effort to make a storage place for it and I have too many cars right now, Be well, T

How are the distributors in those lincolns? Any slop? If so you can stop by my house in mendon and take mine for free, I'm trying to get rid of clutter and I don't own a ford anymore.

Thanks! I'm such a jerk I carry a spare whole known good distributor and the timing wrench to replace it on the side of the road if needed.

I'm from Marlborough, MA -- despite the sign off that says MetroWest Boston which it is but the site gets hit from everywhere so I used that as most folks would have a basic idea.

I did what you suggested Tom and got a tarp to put on the floor. I bought one much bigger than the floor and cut it to size so I wouldn't have to overlap anything. I have a new problem now, I accidentally did a little tiny burnout and it ripped a hole under the tire, that teaches me I have to be very gentle I guess. You think I should just stuff a piece of tarp under that hole or do you think I should glue it in? Do you think if I drive the car everyday I should put something else over it? If so what? Thanks

From there I would go to something like plywood but if you plan on too much money with this a real garage would be the way to go, T
