Winter Storage Tips

I'm planning on storing my Boxster for winter and would appreciate any tips or adviced about getting the car ready. I'm looking at putting the car away probably mid December and taking it back out after the last snow fall and salt is off the road in March. I'm in New Jersey with summer tires.

Some things to consider:

Sitting on jack stands vs tires
trickle charge

Here's what I do:

Change oil and filter
Stabil in gas tank
Top-off gas
Wash, dry, buff, wax
Inflate tires to ~60psi
Small pieces of plywood under tires
Chock wheels
Parking Brake OFF
Trans in Neutral
Battery maintainer (the kind that plugs into cig lighter outlet)
Leave windows cracked
Cover

If it's humid, a couple of bags of silica desicant in cabin
If you have rodents, block tail pipe and front grill area with rags or towels

Tom Blue, read this old post. I did this stuff last year, and my car came out in April like a charm!
