i'm not done with it, i will add more wood to the structure and maybe tarps on the sides but i,m not sure about the tarps yet, it has nothing to do with the battery itself it has to do with storage location.(i'have instaled and maintain a lot of car winter shelter in my life, i have a good idea of what i need to do.)
The roof structre is there to prevent branches from the surounding trees to fall
on the egg..we have giant trees in the back yard and pickup lots of braches during the wnter..
The snow that will fall
oon the roof will be removed and i plan on maintaining(removing snow) the sides also.
