    So, I picked up a car capsule showcase model this week. I bought the 18" model and it's the perfect size for the hellcat. I have a standard 3 car garage and it fits perfectly on the 2 car side and the hellcat fits great within it. The plastic is wrinkled from the box so it looks a bit funky now, but as it has time to unwrinkle it will be much better.

    The instructions were great, and it was easy to setup. It was up and ready in about 20 minutes.

    Is that to store the car for the winter or protect it from the kids?

    Love it! It's a great protector! I wish they had the showcase when I bought mine.

    I bought mine off of Ebay from a local seller. You can get one from www.carcapsule.com/showcase for about $1,700

    The zippers are tough because the plastic is shrunk and creased in the box. I had to have the walls deflated a bit in order to get it zipped. Then I inflated it fully after I put the car in.

    I was going to get a bubble but at that time smallest one was way to big for my garage.

    I thought about the bubble, but I was worried about the bubble touching the paint and setting it up everytime I wanted to drive the car was a pain.

    My wife will probably be mad at me but i'm gonna get one and do that to protect my car from her and the kids when i'm deployed. Is there a way to run an extension cord in there so i can use a trickle charger?

    Yes, there's a hole just below the service fan. It has a flap to keep air in.
