Anybody got any tips for someone who has no garage? Only having the weekend and working around mother nature can be bothersome.

Friend of mine who owns an upholstery shop goes to Sam's Club - or Walmart, don't remember which - & buys their temporary storage tents for cars & boats sitting outside his shop until he can work on them...he bought me one for my '60 Magnette until I got my garage finished....large enough for that big saloon with plenty of room to walk around & work under/in car....less than $200 & will hold up to high winds, rain, etc.

FYI - I just saw one of those for sale at Harbor Freight for $260. See the link here: Temperary Garage (https://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=42211)

I've used one for years (with plywood floor) and it beats being out in the weather. Be aware that the quality of the tarp material varies widely in these things. The better ones will last for years out in the UV, and you can get replacement panels, unlike the Wally Mart junk.
