Default Opinions needed on Winter storage

this will be my 5th winter storing my SS in my garage. I have a car cover, But when i close the top would it be a benefit not latching it tight?

I would keep it fully latched. I've had mine since new and the top rarely goes down all winter. It's latched tight. Still all original and no issues with the Haartz cloth material. I would hope you are using the RAGGTOPP products as well.

No I do not use that. I listen to "The Camaro Show" podcast everyweek and I won a Griots garage convertible top cleaner and it works awesome.

I'm sure that Griots works fine but you need the protectant too. Really repels water and bird/sap droppings.
