car cover recommendations
« on: August 20, 2009, 10:57:53 AM »
When I purchased my '41 60S, it came with a very heavy, fleece-lined (or something like that) car cover which left a coat of dust on the car every time I used it.  I tried all the tips recommended on this forum and others to shake the dust out and even had my cleaners treat the cover, to little effect.  So, I'll buy another one.

I've never purchased a car cover and wondered what suggestions the group might have - this would be for a #2-condition car stored indoors.

Many thanks-

Covercraft, in my opinion, makes the best car covers you can buy. They have patterns for virtually every car made since the 1930s and will custom make one for you if they don't have a pattern.
They have many different types of fabric to suit varying needs.
I generally buy covers made from their Technalon Noah fabric.
They are all made in Texas and sold by dozens of retailers online. Beverly Hills Motorsports is a company I have purchased from in the past. The last cover I bought was from a company called Dan's Discount Car Covers. You'll find, however, that the prices vary by only a few dollars between retailers.
If a seller doesn't list the car you're looking for, call Covercraft directly. They have helped me many times and are very knowlegable.

As they say in their ads, no cover is a substitute for a garage. Most of their covers are guaranteed for 5 years. The weathershield and Noah fabrics are very good for outdoor use but are the most expensive.

I'd also suggest the custom fit rather than the ready fit patterns. The ready fit is just a generic, size-based pattern for the standard jelly bean/wedge shaped cars made today.

Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for YOURSELF
