  • Car covers

    After 30 plus years I need new car covers, my last purchase was from Beverly Hills car covers. What is the best car cover to purchase?
    Thank you,
    Mike

    I have two "plushweave"covers for my cars from Cal car cover. I have read in the past that Cover Craft is the same but i have never confirmed that. A good cover is important to me so the $$ part of it does not enter into my decision. I like these because they are heavy enough to absorb something bumping into the car. I also like a loose fitting cover VS the "Customweave" a tight fitting one (that gets stretched on) because as with any cover no matter how good the quality is if there is pollen, heavy dust ,etc, on the paint finish it can leave fine scratches not seen by everyones eye in the paint.

    Yes I'm anal:

    the bed sheet route etc that many take is fine for a driver, but maintaining a show quality paint job is a different ball game. I know I'm in the minority here

      Mitch,
      Thank you $$$ no problems for me either, when it comes to my cars. Thanks for the info are your covers for exterior use also ? The reason I ask is I want to cover my 29 pick up until judging on Wednesday at Gettysburg.

          There is info in the link i posted above.
          They can be used outside for fair weather use only, i would'nt use it for rain.
          That being said i purchased these for rain when i go to a show, emergency use only. Before you consider purchasing a temp plastic i tried the different sizes out so when i get home later today i can verify the proper one. I am thinking it was XLarge not the one i linked below, i just did a quick search to bring it up.
          The price was about the same

                    Mike,
                    If your covers lasted 30+ years, you should buy the same ones again! I chose a 25 instead of a 45 year roof------"I'm not gonna' LIVE that LOOOONG"!!

                      Cover craft makes some if not all of them for California Car Cover. You can order direct from Cover Craft last time I checked. I only have indoor or outdoor covers. Not any for both.

                          I read somewhere to not put a car cover on a newly painted vehicle. How long should I wait after I've had my car painted before using a car cover? Also, what are the best type of covers to use on our Model A's?

                          indoor car cover
                          by Paragon
                          I am looking into purchasing an indoor car cover for my 30 coupe and my highest priority is to protect the finish from dust. No need for any protection from the exterior elements. Do any of you have any good recommendations for a good, indoor use cover? Also, your experience with a fully fitted cover versus a generic cover.

                          Thank you

                          Just picked up a $25 car cover 'fits all' kinda deal at WalMart for the '36 Pickup. Fits good! Covers the whole vehicle. Elastic on the bottom keeps it on pretty nicely.If the truck had a high point paint job then no, wouldn't probably go that route but I just needed something kinda temporary and this one fits the bill. Truck stored indoors in a dry garage.

                          We have a custom fit cover...

                          I need a car cover
                          by Ray Horton
                          About 12 years ago I got a nice car cover for my peekup. It is light weight, kind of a silky material, and was made by a company called Pro-Tech. They seem to be out of business now, and I need a new cover because the squirrels nibbled holes in mine last winter and it's pretty ragged. Does anyone know of a good lightweight cover currently on the market that does nor need to do any more than keep the...

                          by Tom Wesenberg
                          I bought some $55 car covers for my Model A's and Studebakers, but they are shot after a year or two in the weather. This plastic cover is handy to take along for car shows and overnight trips, where you might get caught in the rain. I bought a 100' roll of 6 mil clear plastic, then cut the length needed for the car, and use magnets to hold it in place. Harbor Freight had the bar magnets on sale,...

                          28-29 Tudor sun visor
                          by Dennis
                          When I got my Tudor it had no cover on the visor and was flat. I gave it the arch that Marco mentioned in another thread. Now I am getting it ready to install the cover. I bought the new cover from Bratton’s. It was folded in the bag and I’m letting it relax some so I’m in no hurry to get it on the car. So what is the procedure for installing the cover? There is a soft backing on the vinyl...

                          Car cover that fits a slant window cabriolet??
                          by Kevin in NJ
                          So can anyone recommend a car cover that will fully cover a 68C?
                          It is in a garage so I am not looking for weather proof. I want one that is not a snug fit and is ok with the cowl lights and rear spare.
                          I guess a coupe cover would work too.

                          Who has bought what and how does it fit?

                          Thanks!

                          Is the rope seal that goes in the timing cover the same as the one that goes in the pan?

                          Valve cover racing
                          by Curly
                          Our Alaskan club did a valve cover race a few weeks back. It’s new to us but we had some good laughs. My dear wife realized the women club member were pretty good at it so now “she’s” building a racer.
                          Anyone else ever done any valve cover racing?
