We have an issue with the garage in my condo so now some chalky, chemically stuff is dripping on my Insight. Left unabated, these drippings will eat the finish. It's going to get fixed but in the meantime, I need to get Mouse a blanket.

Wind isn't an issue really. Ideally I'd like to be able to install the blanket over a Saris rack, which I'll probably install later this summer. Any recommendations?

how about a tarp strung from the walls of the garage, with enough slope for drainage. i do that over my boat between some trees in the yard so i can work on the boat in the shade and keep most of the water and tree stuff out of it.

It's a group condo garage, so I'm not sure a tarp will fly with the Association Board. :lol:

I'm kind of surprised Honda doesn't offer one, actually. :oops:

Is this a concrete ceiling? I've seen that a lot in undeground parking lots. Basically you have manmade staglactite action going on... I've never actually seen it ruin paint... but it is annoying and disturbing.

Efflorescence is a white powdery appearing deposit. It may appear from a "light haze " to a very heavy "blooming". Or Water soluble salts, depostied as moisture evaporates, on the exterior of brick or concrete

What causes efflorescence? Efflorescence does not occur unless water has been, or still is traveling through the wall or floor. The denser the concrete, brick, stone or stucco the more difficult it is for the water to transport the salts to the surface, conversely, the more porous the material, the greater the ease with which the salts are transported and deposited on the surface.
If the drip pattern is located in a certain spot(s), you could go low-tech. Any normal car cover is porous, so that doesn't sound like it will help you alone.

Put a Garbage Bag down.
Put a towel(s) down.
Put some sort of weight to keep it from blowing off (regardless of the lack of wind).
