The sun is your enemy. It hates your Corvette.
As any owner of Corvettes knows, all that window glass bakes theinterior of your car. For our project '86 Corvette, sitting in the sunfor three years without a car cover to protect the insides took its tollon the hard plastic parts and soft interior coverings.
