Tarpaulin / cover

Post by jonwood on Mon Dec 10, 2012 1:12 pm

Has anybody had any luck tracking down a supplier of covers for my '99 Hijet? I don't have a garage and want to give her a fighting chance over the winter (especially as the rear sunroof leaks a little).

Be careful with car covers, I have given up with them as they have caused me more problems than they are worth. One actually stuck to some of the paint and ripped it off when I removed it! The have a nasty habbit of trapping condensation under the cover and causing more rust and paint damage than if you left it uncovered.

They are good to use in a garage though as they stop little scratches and dust.

Fab, I'll keep on top of the leak for now and work towards a more permanant solution when it's a bt dryer.

Gotta agree, my Merc was kept under a cover, paint on the roof was blotchy, caused by dampness trapped in the lacquer, brought on by the cover.
