    I drive all year round and run 50% antifreeze to ensure clean passages in the cooling system. My garage is too damp to allow it to sit still I'm afraid.

    Would it be best to put the thing up on axle stands with the wheels off or just let it sit on the ground with wheels on?
    Hi Ken, I do what has already been advised, ie blow the tyres up to around 35 psi, disconnect battery with isolator switch , check antifreeze etc, except when i get the engine up to temp once a month , i also drive up and down our close , and give the brakes a work out to stop the brake pistons sticking . Before I cover it up to keep next doors cat off the paint work and give it a bit pf protection when i constantly squeeze by it ,i also put the roof on over winter, which stops the roof material shrinking . i once left the roof in the boot over winter and couldn't get it to stretch enough to reach the clips when i came to fit it again in the spring
