Christmas Pressy ..... 'Car Cover'

PostPost by: holywood3645 » Wed Dec 05, 2012 4:23 am

I have heard Santa is bringing me a car Cover for my S4 (Indoor) but he's not sure which one to get. Can anyone help with some suggestions (USA)

Thanks

None. Unless you are sure you won't be troubled by damp.

James,
I have a Covercraft "Dustop" indoor cover for my 68 S4 DHC. They are also available in the US from Covercraft USA. I quite happily drive the car into the garage and fit the cover whilst the car, and engine, are still warm. Doesn't seem to leave a "haze" on the paintwork that something like a straight cotton cover does.

Has anyone considered MX-5 car covers? As we all know, Elans and MX-5 are roughly the same size... For them, car covers can be found on Amazon for cheap cheap!

I use the Club Lotus shop Item and its very good. Plenty room in it and its super soft too.

Well happy and a full 100% recommendation.

You dont need to be a CL member to buy.

company website
http://www.covercraft.com/

I bought the evolution for my 70 S4. Here is the product selector for it:

What's good about it is that it is thick and cushioned, so if something does get dropped on it, it's slightly less likely to get damaged.

Merry Christmas! I hope Santa gets you what you want.

Hi,

I have had the CL shop cover for a couple of years now and am very happy with it. As Alex said, there is loads of room under it and it is soft. I did have some concerns about using a cover after reading through the threads but have not had any problems.

Hi James.
I purchased mine via CL, you get a 10% reduction in price.
Mine was for the +2 and was the Supertex Indoor size SL, current Club Price is ?94.50 + ?11 delivery.
Very pleased with the quality and have had no problems in over 2 years of usage. :)

Just checked the price on Hamilton Classic Web Site and the same item is ?100 + ?11 delivery.
You can make your own selection see:-

Sorry. Should have said sold by CL partners Hamilton Classics.Their advert is in the club mag every month, BUT... TJ has it coverd for you. See his link. (which looks to be not working so try this ).

Nice cover I have to say. Mrs B bought is as a prezzy a couple of years ago, it is the same as TJ uses I think.

Hope you like it ..
