Default Car cover and shipping tips

Hey guys,

I am in the final stretch of my little over a year living and working in the states, the company I am working for is shutting down the branch office here in San Diego, so its back to south of Sweden in Europe.

I am "stealing" on of the Nova beauties, to take with me home :-)

So now to the questions:

I am looking for a car cover that will be good while shipping (container) and also that will outlast the climate back home, even though its probably just going to be a dust cover. Any tips for good ones? that fit a 4th genner real good?

Also Im putting fuel stabilizer in the tank (limited to a 1/4 tank) and I am thinking of putting some "keep moist out" chemical, but I have heard different stories, as the chemicals attract moist it might just work the other way around, pulling it into the car and then keeping it there? Should I avoid it overall?

Ive also heard that people put some sort if disinfectant on the interior to keep mold out? like just rubbing it down with something like Lysol or so? Its gonna be at sea for 2 months.

Thanks guys!

Silica Gel Bag will suck out moisture and prevent mold/mildew from growin

personally on the car cover id get any 3 layer poly topped cover with a nice soft inner layer kinda like this guy:
