    Protective car cover when in garage

    Hi,

    Im excited to finally become the proud owner of a Cobra after many years of saving.

    I would appreciate advice on a good protective cover for my car when it is in my garage.
    its hard to know which ones really fit and give protection

    Any recommendations please?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi <Name>

    Welcome aboard

    With regards to cover, i got mine from Hamilton classics - the one that shows the 2 door, silver, Merc in the photo.

    I've had it for 8 - 10 years and used it when the car was in storage in FiL barn for nearly 3 years. It's been used pretty much since buying it. Not a perfect fit but works well (doesn't stop sawdust much though i've found)

    Get a good quality cotton cover which can breath. Dont fit an out door cover indoors as fibre glass needs to breath .

    I've just ordered a pretty cheap cover from Amazon. Indoor breathable. (supposedly)
    Measured the car and went for the closest size cover.
    I'll let you know how it fits, quality etc.
    Made sure I can return it just in case.
    Cheers

    I have an indoor car cover from classicadditions.com which covers my cobra nicely. Barry

    old cotton bedsheets for me, not fancy but did the job. Use fitted sheets as the elastic corners hook nicely under the body, I used 1 over bonnet, one over rear deck and then one plain sheet just draped over windscreen making a tent over the cockpit

    As recommended by other club member's, I purchased this from Amzon, and it has been on my car for the last couple of months.

    Cosmos car cover for less than £50. Nice product and comes in a handy storage bag for when you don't need it. I went with the med size, which goes right to the floor all round.
    Thank Mike

    My car is now inside one of these for the winter:

    It'll be taken down at Easter.

    Pricey new, but they do come up from time to time on ebay. Keeps spiders/mice and cobwebs out and we'll see if it keeps the damp out as advertised or not.....
