Car covers are a wonderful investment that often go overlooked when considering some of the best things a classic car owner can purchase.
During the winter season, those without the luxury of a garage often utilize car covers as a means to avoid the snow and ice build-up on our cars during the winter months. And as for those who do have access to a garage, they still use car covers as they do a phenomenal job at protecting the vehicle's paint from dust and other debris.
But when spring and summer roll around, classic cars are exposed to damaging elements just the same. If you don’t have a garage to store your classic vehicle, you may be unknowingly exposing your classic vehicle to rain, dust, dirt and the underestimated foe – the sun.
Although rain, dust and dirt can mostly affect the exterior of the car, the sun, can damage the outside and more so the interior of the classic car.
When the UV rays and the temperatures reach extreme levels, the vehicle’s interior vinyl or leather oil dries up, which leads to discolouration, drying and worse still - cracking.
So, with this in mind, when it comes to choosing outdoor car covers, not all are created equal or even, for the same purpose.
