I know it’s bad to cover a car in moist weather. But I need to move my convertible mustang out of the garage for 2 weeks so the bathroom remodelers can use the garage for their work. Do you think 2 weeks with some rain with a covered car will result in mold issues? Or with the short time frame it would be ok?

Not a Mustang but kept a Miata (convertible) outside from November thru March in western Pa. It was under a Wolf cover purchased from Summit-not hi end. No problems. I would think your 2 weeks should be ok.

Think of it this way. If you were on a 2 week vacation, would you have to keep your car covered? If it isn't leaking now, then you don't even need a tarp over it (though you could just put one over it for S&Gs.

IMO, if the car doesn't leak you'd be better off to leave it uncovered. If the cover gets wet, the car will stay wet til the cover dries. I run a sign shop out of my garage. Occasionally I have to put the car outside, but I have a tent (ShelterLogic) to pull it into if the weather is wet. I use my car cover when it's in the garage to keep the sawdust off it.
