Since I don't have a garage to keep my car in for the summer, I need to get myself a cover for the car. I have been looking at the California Car Covers and they look pretty decent. Does anyone have any experience with these that could point me in a good direction. Also has anyone used the California Duster on their car? It seems to me like it would scratch the hell out of the car moving the dust and pollen and stuff like that off the car. But if it saves me from washing the car every couple days, I'm all for it. If anyone has good experience with these things, definitely let me know and I'll give them a try.

I bought my car cover from them. Quality piece. I've had it for almost 9 yrs now. My car does sit in the garage always so I bought the lighter cover for inside use.
I also have a California Duster. If you buy one, get the original one that has the wooden handle. You use it to take off "light" dust. It's not intended to be used on a car that's been sitting for weeks without being washed.
My car has zero scratches on it.It's stock.

Good info. I was hoping that those dusters would be good for just a light coating of stuff that might get on the car overnight so it keeps the car looking cleaner between washes. But my car being black it's already hard enough to keep clean for long so anything helps. It's a good thing to have I guess.

I have the california car dusters. I have both the interior and exterior ones. I love them!
I bought a wolf cover like 4 years ago and i swear by it.

OP - just be careful when installing and removing the car cover. If you are leaving the car outside, make sure to purchase the car cover designed to be used for outside use. You'll also have to most likely have the car cover washed in an industrial size washer (laundry mat). I have a relatively large washer at home and it doesn't fit in it. Being that yours will be outside, you'll probably need to wash it more often than I wash mine.

Another vote for Cal Car Cover, I have had several over the years for different vehicles. I love the fit and quality.

another vote for california car covers as well. But what i did notice when mine was parked outside and it rained, you can't let the cover sit on the car for to long after it stops. Altough most of the water does evaporate it will leave water spots all over the car.
