Advice for mothballing a car
Late last year my wife had a stroke and her driving licence was temporarily revoked. I kept her car on the road as it was handy to have another set of wheels available, meaning I could have mine fixed or serviced at the sort of cheap shop that dooesn't do courtesy cars and just use hers instead. But now the tax and insurance on her car have expired and although she has her driving licence back it will be a long time before she can go back to work, and until such time it is not worth taxing and insuring her car and due to the economic downturn I will get next to nothing if I sold it. So I hope to keep it in a corner of the garden until she needs it again. Any suggestions as to what precautions I can take? My main concerns are the engine, clutch and brakes seizing due to lack of use. I live in a very moist, humid environment.
The car in question is a 2000 Daewoo Lanos 1.4S
