Outdoor car cover
 
Hi folks.

Recently my council garage rent has been getting rather expensive, so I have a drive in front of the house where I can keep the Rover, however I would require a good quality outdoor car cover, I have an indoor one, but it will just blow off.

Could anyone send me a link where I can buy a good quality cover suitable to protect the cars paintwork, also needs to be able to be tied down or hooked to the wheels.

I am not a fan of outdoor covers - they can scratch or sweat. I find a regular polish keeps the paint fine, but I do it at least once a week - not practical if time is of the essence or you live in a very wet area.

From people I've spoken to that use those covers ensure the inner lining is a soft cotton like material or the vinyl cover will leave abrasions on the paint over time.;)

I had a heavy duty cover with a fleece lining plus it had breathing vents. Ok in the dry but totally useless in the wet as the vents let in the water. Then it was a pain getting the cover dry to put back on the car.

I have a tourer and this is what i bought last year off Amazon, very tough, waterproof and has several ties front and back and a central undercar strap.
very happy with it so far and remains in place during strong winds (of which we get lots of!). It covers down to middle of the wheels.

I've done a video about one that I've used for years on my various 75s as I've no garage anymore.

I've never had any issues with scratching or grim, and I've one car parked under a tree currently also which having done a check before posting this is almost as clean as when I parked it up two years ago.

Don't forget, if you go down this route, to notify your Insurance Company that the car is no longer garaged. It is also likely to put your premium up.
