As I prepare to ready the Spider for winter, I'll wash, wax and change the oil but what are thoughts on rotating tires at the same time? Spider has 5k miles, mostly highway and appear to be wearing evenly.

If they appear to be wearing evenly, I would probably just leave them. But that's just me, some people religiously rotate on certain mileage or whatever.

In regards to storing it, I would put a battery tender on it, and possibly fuel stabilizer. That's about it.

If your garage sweats or generates moisture on the floor, I would put something as a barrier under the length of the car. Some carpet of even just plastic sheeting.

Don't use plastic sheeting it will draw moisture underneath, if your garage sweats you need to keep the air moving. Better still invest in a Carcoon type system. A battery conditioner is a good idea although a good blast every couple of weeks is better for the sole!

Not discussed which fuses to pull to prevent quick battery drain

the owners manual uses the phrase perforated plastic sheeting.
