Now I know this subject upsets a few people, but I’ve had my coupe freshened up with some paint and I want to protect it from the elements. Also the crap from the trees around me. My garage is currently occupied by my motorbikes. I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a decent cover to protect my pride and joy.

I got mine, a Stormforce, from PJ Classic Car Covers.

I've been pleased with it, but needed to sew on two extra tapes, at the front and rear.

Why did you need to do that? Out of interest

It's parked on an east-west road which can be quite a wind-tunnel - it can blow from either direction causing either the front or rear portion of the cover to dislodge, in spite of the elastication.

I've even had to include a rear-centre loop for the tape to pass through!

That makes sense then. I’m hoping to avoid getting any of my blue Peter skills out. I’ll look into the covers today.

Tbh, I didn't stitch then on myself, left that to an expert!

You're right Nigel, we can't really have one rule for some and not others wink

I've PM'd you the message, maybe PM the OP chinny
