I took my vette out of the Car Bag today, very pleased with the results.
Plus you can tell if you have any fluid leaks, what kind of fluid is leaking and where about it's leaking from LOL

Darn.....sort of left myself open for that one Wacko
 
Well I have been puzzled with a tiny hesitation, I noticed it when we burnt the coil out, on the way to MAMO.
I had my buddy come up this morning with his pyro gauge and the cylinder temps all seem normal.
I ran a few tanks of lead additive through the car last season and we think I may have a Cat conveter plugging up.
Car started right up and sounds fine, when hot you can detect a slight skip or burp every once in a while. If you recall last fall I said I had a chirping noise when going down the road.
We sort of think its putting backpressure on the donut gasket at the exhaust mainifold.
They make a cat cleaner that is suppose to work great, so that is the next step to try.
I'm just glad not to have to worry about plugs or wires!
Anyhow it is an amazing day today weather wise, for us this is unreal, we broke temp record yesterday and they think we are going to break the record the next 4 or 5 days.

Larry I really liked the bag and nothing was able to get to the car. I was surprised that when I unwrapped the bag I could smell petroleum fumes at first...that bag really seals that car up.
I will buy another one for the Red vette when that one is complete.
Thank you for talking me into it.

What made you put lead additive in the car? There is a reason it says unleaded fuel only. You may have to put a new converter in her. If you do, go for the high flow one, works great.

Yeah...it's called a DOG...LOL

I don't know what kind of cleaner you be talking aboot, but, my guess is it ain'ta guna werk. I'm wid Dave...why you puttin lead additives in yer car? There's no need for it, and it will damage the converter. Once it gets onto the surface of the grid/pellets, it's there...
On the bright side, at least the bag worked out well...kinda like a big ol diaper, eh?Thumbs Up

Is this a reusable bag?
Do you clean the inside and store it until the Fall?
How difficult was it to put the Vette in it?

Ebo, I'm sure glad that you liked it............otherwise I would have an ebo person after me. The great part is you can also see if and where you might have leaks on the floor areas of the bag! Enjoy your Baby!

Dave, your spread out the bag, then drive onto the floor section of it. They want you to put your regular car cover on, then cover up with the vinyl bag zipping it from one end to the other.
