Default Parking My Mustang for Winter... TIPS??

I just bought a 94 Mustang GT vert, and unfortunatly have to park it for the winter

thing is it will be parked outside, and up here in Alberta it can get down to -30 degrees Celcius (-22 Fahrenheit) and can snow pretty heavy.

So what things should I do?
Things I am planning on doing are as follows:

- Outdoor car cover is a given.... Does the quality of the car cover matter much or are they all pretty much the same?
- Fuel stabalizer
- Take Battery out
- Open window a crack to prevent moisture (with the cold temperatures this won't affect the leather interior will it?)

anything else???

thanks

Full tank of gas and fuel stabil will keep condensation out of tank. Make sure you drive a bit after putting stabil in so it mixes up and gets in fuel lines. I would keep windows shut. Also cover tailpipes to keep critters out and put a moth ball block under the hood.

Any way to keep the snow piling up on your convertible top?

keep windows closed? I heard the moisture that can build up can cause mold/ bad smell.

Remember this car will be parked for 5+ months never moved.

and not really, I could go out and wipe the snow off myself after a snowfall...
