Get something that goes as low as possible. You'll get what you pay for, obviously a fitted one wont be readily available, but try to get something that wont blow away.

What did i find in that thread

But yea i did find one thats like a bag. but.... it says for indoor use only :(

But i bet if you put another cheapo cover or tarp over that it should be fine.

I assume Gravenge will be sharing the garage with a REALLY old car with a 6-volt optima battery?
