|Dale_K||Thanks for the replies. Turns out I'll be able to use the garage in the empty house across the street. I like the idea about the foam wakeboards but I won't need them this time.|

|DFW6ER||I've...knock on wood....sucessfully weathered several hail storms w/o damage by putting layers of cardboard boxes over the top, windshield, hood, and windows and then covering with a tarp. Cheap and quick to set up.|

Tarp to keep it dry, padding to protect it.

|GreenRubi||You could go purchase a large thick tarp and some rope and setup a makeshift shelter. That would probably work unless it is baseball or softball sized hail and then you'll need to pull it under something a little more sturdy.|

If your Cruze already has a damage history, leave it out.
It has already been devalued.

|GREEN-MACHINE||set the jeep on fire to melt the hail before it hits the jeep.|

Hail coming today and protecting the Jeep
The weather guy is predicting storms this evening with the main threat being large hail. A storm like this messed up the roof of my house a few years ago. My garage won't hold all my vehicles - one needs to be left outdoors, and I'm thinking maybe the softop Jeep would make more sense than the GMC pickup or the Cruze. The Cruze needed $500 worth of hail repairs after a storm, mostly to the roof and hood.
Anybody have some tips for protecting against hail damage when you can't get undercover? Laugh if you want, but I was thinking about buying some bubble wrap and duct tape. The vertical windshield & sides would seem to be less vulnerable to me compared to the other vehicles. I could cover the hood with bubble wrap and cross my fingers.
