This is how I try to avoid hail damage. Under the tree. There was no hail here last night but 2 nights ago one hail stone put a small ding in the hood of the black mustang.

What kind of tree is that? I'd be worried about sap and bird poo if I parked under a tree. I guess those do less damage than hail if you get to them fast enough.

It had a cover on it. It's a White oak. Just big enough to do the job.

Green cars matter.

We all need two Stangs in the family.

BTW, grab one of the wife's old thick comforters from the bed when it hails. One of those saved my old F-150 several times.

That's definitely worth trying. Once I tried plywood. And draped a cover over it.

In the Green mustang I Got done changing out the break pads an rotors in the front. I did the back breaks about 3 weeks ago. The front had a wobble when breaking. The pads were fairly newer but one of the rotors or both were warped causing the wobble.
Smooth breaking now.
Today I cut the rear joust bumpers shorter. This was a great improvement in ride comfort. I should have done this when I first put the lowering springs in.
The world is good again.
