When home, do you park your 392 outside or in a garage?

In garage at work. Outside while at work. So still gets significant sun exposure because I have a day job.
 
Oh crap I really need to get that garage cleaned out. I’m all alone!

After years of not having a garage, we finally built one and wow, what a difference it makes. Cars (and Jeeps!) are so much happier when they can dry off and spend most of their time not in the sun and under birds and trees. I know this is a “Captain Obvious” comment, but I had convinced myself otherwise, and man, it really does make that much of a difference. A luxury, no doubt, though. But so worth it when you love your vehicles.

Garage of course! Here in Houston it gets really hot so we turn the a/c on in the garage to keep the temps around 85 degrees to keep dashes etc. from cracking.
 
Three car garage and a fourth space in my storage garage. These two get spots, my FJ gets a spot, and my BMW gets a spot. I may add on my house and have a 5th spot. That means I can buy a 5th at that point. ;)

Sadly, the TJ is going very soon and the FJ will go around the time I get my 392. I'll be down to three at that point. I have a Hummer on order to take the fourth spot though.

Garage at home
Garage at the airport (weekly)
And, if at a hotel, garage there as well.

The Colorado sun can be hell on a car.
Ever seen a 40 yo person who lived at this altitude their entire life? Donatella Versace is a fine example of a Colorado 40. 🤣

I'm with ya! Must be a West Coast thing. :) And my garage is currently full of other toys, gym stuff, etc. Sigh.......
 
Inside with all the other toys and tools. I had to install a shorter antennae because the OEM antennae tangled with the rear tire on my mountain bike.

Too funny...🤣 I have the exact same setup with my Trek hanging precariously over my Jeep like "the sword of Damocles" ⚔️

Just had to post one more picture of my the two "Matchbox" cars that get to live in the garage. Kinda funny they both emerged from WWII on opposing sides and now they share opposite sides of my rickety old garage. I call the Bug my Schwartz Car (cuz it's black a definitely not a "sports car" but it does have 4 on the floor) 🤣... May the schwartz be with you.

(I brought it down a little lower than it normally lives to get it in the shot)

(The other irony is only the German Beetle spent time in the US military, the Jeep has been a civilian its whole life. ;))
That's a lot of weight (Trek e-bike = 50lb death trap) hanging precariously above your shiny RED 392. 😉

I know, I know... 🤣 hence "the sword of Damocles". But where is the fun in life if you're not living with a little danger hanging by a thread?
Actually I am planning to move the Trek elsewhere to free up some space so I can add a hoist to help lift off and remove/store the one-touch hard top up there.
 
3 car garage. THE JEEP has the single bay to itself. At home always in the garage, except on perfect weather weekends when I'm working in the garage and like the jeep sitting in the driveway so I can look at it in all it's grandeur!

You know what they say, “If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space!”

Send some pics when you get that figured out. Plus I was told that removing the 1 touch top was a pain in the A** and not really recommended. Very curious on that process. I appreciate it. Thx!

Have you seen the youtube video of the guy that did it? It doesn't look super painful, but definitely not just straight forward. Removing the rear glass seemed to me like the most painful part. If I remember correctly, it involved him balancing the open glass on his head while he undid/redid the bolts.
