    Default Car Cover?

    Does anyone have a cover for their Vec? We have just moved into a new build house and so other houses are being built near to ours which means quite a bit of dust. I know a cover isn't going to keep it spotless but I thought it couldn't hurt and wondered if anyone has any recommendations?

    Its elasticated around the edges so hugs underneath it. Soo far soo good... Well what it covers of mine anyway... Think i'm gonna buy the extra large one...

    Theres also 2 straps which pass underneath the car, roughly in line with the wheels

    If there is loads of dust about be careful.

    Covering your car with dust on it will act as sandpaper, you'll have to clean it and ensue it's dust free everytime you go to cover it.

    I did wonder about that Keif, the plan would be for the cover to go on after the car had had a rinse down!

    You'll need to dry it first, as putting a cover on a wet car = damp mouldy car.

    TBH i'd just rinse it down and dry it every week.

    I have a Nova sat under a car cover, if we've been any distance or come back in the rain, it's a pain to clean/dry it before fitting the cover. However i'll never put the cover on without.
