Rebuild Question - storage

Long story short, my engine is taken apart and I'm planning on rebuilding this summer. I've found lots of info on how to care for a block or head while in storage, but nothing for my specific scenario. Is there a way I can leave the block on the jeep with the cylinders exposed without worrying about it? I can't take it out right now, but I also don't want to put everything back together until I get to it this summer. Thoughts? I live in the mountains and it is very dry here.

I guess it depends on how much of a rebuild you will be doing. If you're doing a complete rebore with new pistons, id just cover it with plastic as much as possible, just to keep crap out of the head bolt holes and such. Spray it down with WD40, and just keep it covered...shouldn't be an issue.

I use fogging oil to winterize motors. Maybe mist that over parts that are exposed to prevent rust.
