Car cover for p18

Post by Root Beer Stand » Thu Oct 23rd, 2008 3:37

Looking for a cover, hopefully "Lucille" will be inside soon but for now she is braving the elements.

What are you using?
Are you happy with it?
Where would I get one?

Thanks!

No cover for "Uncle Johnny" here in Colorado. Leave him sitting on a graveled surface that stays pretty dry most of the time and then knock the snow off soon after any snow. Paint is fading but not too many other problems. I have the seat out and stored inside and have all of the stored stuff on the inside covered with sheets. My parts car in Iowa is covered with blue "el-cheapo" tarps. They last about 1 year or so and then need to be replaced to the tune of about $20 each. It's covered mostly to keep the neighbors happy and to hinder the looky-lou's (like me).

Right now I am using zip lock bags and storage crates. :lol:


Anyway, here's some measurements for you.

P18

Height (road to roof) = 66"
Width = 71"
Length (including bumper and bumper guards) = 192"



P17

Height (road to roof) = 65"
Width = 72"
Length (including bumper and bumper guards) = 185"
.

Good going in your Plymouth! :driving:

Saw a few on Ebay but they appear to be thicker blue tarps, trying to avoid the look of that LOL
Already have few around covering things of lesser worth and satisfaction

To get something water proof and UV blocking may have to go that route.

Be smart to keep Lucille covered in the barn since the birds like the barn a lot..

Thanks for to measurements Paul, was going to get them myself but you saved me the trouble! :D

JC Whitney and California Car Cover have fitted covers in a variety of prices from less than $50 to several hundred. They are also indoor and outdoor covers. There is even a long term cover that you zip the car into along with some dessicants to absorb moisture. You might just do a search for car covers and see what comes up.

The Mrs and I worked about all weekend and made room for "Lucille" and all the stuff needing to be in the barn :)

Still going to need a cover. Checked out JC Whitney and going with one of the all season covers.

Good investment IMO. Save some washing and in the summer when she sets out will save the UV damage to the old girl!

Thanks!

i would get one of those car ports that are portable and set it over it or maybe one of those army surplus tints that are big enough to fit a car in
