Need a good quality car Cover

Postby CJVR08 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 12:02 pm

Hey guys, I don't really have anywhere to store my car so I'm looking at buying a decent car Cover something that is weatherproof and will also stay if it gets really windy? It gets really warm where I am as well.

There's obviously all kinds at the local car shops but no idea which is the best quality and actually does what they say?

My budget Max is like $200 so what I'm really asking has anyone actually bought one recently either online or eBay or something that you can actually vouch for

You don't want a car cover.
Nothing but a pain in the ass to put on and remove.
Also will scratch the shit out of your paint work.
Only time there any good is after a thorough wash and dry of the car , and for long term storage in a dry shed.

Best way to scratch the paint other then using polish is to shove a car cover over it.

Use some decent car wash and clean it at least once a fortnight
Have a look round see if you can find a hand car wash nearby , might even find one that does a pre paid system and they clean your car fee times a month for under $80 or so

As we know the paint on top of your car is pretty much stuffed so a car cover isn’t going to hurt it. The ones super cheap sell are OK Just need to remember to take the cover off after it rains to let everything dry out
