    Best car cover

    Hey guys my car has been invisible since I took your advice and put a car cover on it while parked in covered parking at my apartments. No problems so far, but my cheap cover is starting to tear so Im wondering which is the best brand custom cover to get? Ideas or suggestions?

    I know everybody hates slp, but what about the SLP cover that was offered when you bought the car new?
    After Thoughts auto has one and here is the link, looks pretty nice.

    I'll second that. Mine came with the factory SS car cover from SLP,,,but I have never used it. Appears to be pretty nice quality though.

    On a side note, I do have a couple of car covers I use on my chevelle and my Formula, and they are from California car covers. Good quality, keeps the dust off very well while in my garage. Although I can't comment from first hand experience but appears to be built rugged enough for outdoor duty. I've had them both for more than 10 years that I can remember and they are holding up well,,,but as I said,,,,only used in the garage.

    I fixed the typo with the title


    Check out wolf and California car covers as well. I have the SLP cover that came with mine, but its only really good for a garaged car to keep the dust off. It doesn't survive rain or other elements well at all.

    Mine is also kept in a garage ,but after it sits for months dust starts to cover it. So if your car is garaged id look for one that just prevents dust. The website i linked explains each cover and which one would best for what you are looking for. good luck

    Best cover I have ever used.....a good wax.

    Most covers will leave very minor swirls.

    But didn't you just post earlier that the SLP car cover was crap and leaves lint and swirl marks all over the car????

    Just to add,,,not only does the car have to be clean before it's covered,,,but the cover as well needs to be washed. I have never had any issues that you speak of.
