What would you recommend for a Vette that lives outside mainly (other then snowy months) in NJ. I am deciding between the NOAH and the Stormproof. I have heard great things about the NOAH and am leaning there. Is there some kind of soft inside lining for the Stormproof? I want to protect the paint. Thanks. BTW I just got the fat daddys and am excited to install them this weekend!

With car covers, it all about the condition of the car when you put
on the cover...

With an inner liner, if there is dirt or pollen on the car when the cover
goes on, it gets trapped and rubbed on the car, scratching the paint.

They are both good covers, both protect for outdoor use

The Stormproof is very thin and breathable, the material is like
parachute material, light weight with a very dense weave. You can
easily roll it up and take it with you.

The Noah is a thicker cover, the material is like a treated heavy
blanket, it is very good to protect against dings and dents. It would
be a little big to roll up and take with you.

Neither cover has an inner liner...


I have both and both do the job well. If you have a lot of pollen
in your area, I would get the storm proof. If you have a lot of "traffic"
around your car, I would get the Noah.


Peace
Chip

Can you recommend an indoor/garaged cover? I'm still reconfiguring my garage. My e46 is lonely at work!
Thanks Chip.

If you are not worried about Kids/dings, then the
Coverking Satin Stretch is a great cover, about as soft as it gets.

If you need a cover to protect the car against kids/dings, then the
Covercraft Dustop is the wa to go


Both are great to protect against dust and pollen, one is thicker than the other...

Peace
Chip

My Autobody Armor is falling apart. Literally, ripped at the seams and one side is a pocket for dead leaves. I must say, the fit has kept it on the car in some pretty strong winds over the years (you see I live in Manassas, too).

Is there a cover that stays on in blustery winds and is a bit more durable? I just bought the cover in October 2008, and it's quite an eyesore! I'm surprised I haven't gotten any ugly notes about it from my neighbors yet...

5-6 years is about the expected lifespan of an outdoor cover - especially one that get heavy duty like high winds

The Autobody Armor is about the best cover on the market

I live in Ocean City Md. and it's very windy a lot of the time. My concern is that the cover will scratch the car on windy days. Your thoughts please.

The cover will only scratch the car if you put it on a dirty car.

Personally for really windy areas I like a heavier cover like the
Noah or Autobody Armour

FWIW, I use a California duster on my one outside vehicle and then if it's not too cool I go over the car with detailer and a microfiber towel. I try to get as much dirt and dust off as possible then I warp the cover tight so as to limit the amount of moving that the wind will create.

I'm sure people do, but it not a good idea.

A good cover is made to let moisture evaporate from under the
cover. Double covering would make that process not work as well.
