Outdoor Car Covers- Is That Good?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for outdoor car cover for Suzuki Swift. Can you recommend any cover and where I can buy it (and price)?

I knew that some car covers damage the paint of vehicle.Is it true for all covers? Let me know your feedback

thanks

Yup i use an imported one and covers my 141. Does a really good job. I bought a pair for 5000 from Darly Road. There is a cheap one made from the same material as the umbrella, try to avoid this as it sticks. The other one is water proof and has a soft white cover inside and protects it from scratching too. If you buy it in singles it will cost around 2700-3000. Always bargain. Good luck.

Guys, I am compelled to park my car outdoors and may continue to do so for some time.

However I am glad there are no trees on top of the car/around hence the car is somewhat cleaner without much dirt or bird droppings.

Given the weather conditions and other external factors, I would appreciate some expert ideas from all of you on how best I can take precautions and continue? I am right now using a sunshade on the windscreen, that's all.

I am concerned about the rubber / beading etc and how can these be protected? Are there any protectors or cleaners available in the market for similar cases?

Thanks in advance guys.

Car is a 1993 Corolla Wagon - White.

I used a car cover made from "breathable" fabric(allows some Air in but no water). But after some time I saw some fungus grown between dashboard and door panel.M aybe its improtant that you remove moisture from the cabin-Air before covering.

i guess proper waxing will protect your paint. I have done a 3M tint on my windscreen which had a visible reduction in heat

Yes this works. However if you keep the car covered for a longer period (in my case a month), humidity creeps up again thanks to the vent holes and voila, you have fungus again. The rule I later followed was what they do with DSLR lenses. Fungus needs humidity and darkness  (or lack of UV) to thrive, remove one and they wont grow.
