the skylines are in my garage, will i need a sunroof in the garage if i use a solar trickle charger???

No! I'm afraid you'll have to park it in the attic of your house and fit a velux. I know it seems like a lot of hard work but it's the only way. :sorry:

solar trickle charge, it has diodes so wont damage or over charge the battery.
i have them on my gtr's and cos i dont use the car that often, the car still starts after sitting for 2-3 weeks

well as mine is off the road now i could do with a trickle charge as it nearly didnt start today.

^^^^^^
as for starting the car up for 5 mins every few days like solheim said it wears the engine so i just drive up and down the street untill engine is up to temperture.

Optimate chargers are good they come with an extra socket and wires that with a bit of ingenuity you can attach to the battery and route anywhere convenient on the car for easy access.
