Car Cover for Fibreglass Body -Good idea or not?


Recommended Posts

Is a cover for the Fibreglass body a good idea or not???? :)

I plan to use it when the car is in storage in the garage over the Winter to keep the dust off. I also plan to use it when I go to Le Mans next year incase it rains like this year - so the cover in mind will be a watertight fitting waterproof one.

Your thoughts and comments will be much appreciated...............

I had a fitted one for my Elan, but not water proof, I would have reservations about a water proof one, unless the vehicle was bone dry it would be like parking it in a green house. I's stick with a soft cloth, elasticated around the circumference. If Le Mans is a problem, buy a bigger tent.

I think by waterproof you mean rain proof, which doesn't mean it's not breathable, in which case you should be able to avoid the issues mentioned above.

If you plan to use it outside and it's not protected from the wind, get one with straps to secure it, just having it elasticated to pull in at the bottom will not stop the wind ripping it off the car.

Never had a problem with mine - dont be tight on it though, spend the money and get a decent one with a soft inside lining and make sure it is breathable.

My GT3 spent most of this year under one, take the cover off and it often suprises me how clean it looks.

If you can get one that has special 'ears' for the wing mirrors.

I had one for my car. It was an outside cover, fully weather proofed but breathable. The interior has a soft velvety feel and it was fitted. If you are going to buy one do it right and spend at least

I found these by typing "car cover" in the search box at the top right. Include the quotation marks in a search if you want this phrase.

hope it helps
