provided they are not bare metal, just leave them alone.
if bare metal have a
body shop shoot a coat of epoxy primer on them.
don't wrap them in poly bags.
the moisture in the air will condense and evaporate many times and lead to
rust problems. but even then it will not be severe rot.

Storing sheet metal (fenders)

Hi List,

I've been lurking for a while now -
some of you may remember me from the
late '90s.  Life has interrupted but I
still have my TR4.

I now also have the opportunity to buy a pair of rear
fenders.  However,
they would have to be stored in my (unheated) workshop or
the attic of our
house, for a few months to a year, while I figure out how to
get the TR4
into the workshop for a proper restoration.

What do people
recommend for treating the sheet metal for storage?  Oil,
grease, waxed paper,
really big ziploc bags?

Thanks in advance!

'62 TR4 (CT10339L)
