    Default car cover, reviving an old topic

    My car is now resprayed by Frank Zucchi Restorations, and paint corrected and CQuartz'ed by Immaculate Reflections. It glows! So, naturally, I'm interested in an in-door cover to minimize the need for dusting.

    I'll do the whole Google search thing, but sincere recommendations from folks that bought the product recently are usually more reliable.

    Have any of you bought a Noble cover in, say, the past 2 years that you're happy with?

    I have not purchased a car cover for my car (it came with one), but…

    I will repeat what I have heard, not what I know (further disclaimer, I have no professional/financial association with any detailing product/company mentioned in this too long rant)

    I am lucky enough to live a short distance from Adams Polish (http://adamspolishes.com/) and have attend many detail clinic’s that Adam has had (and each one seems to cost me money dang it).

    Now the part I have heard.

    If you are 100% OCD about your cars finish, you may not want to use an indoor car cover, particularly if you keep the car in a “typical” residential sized garage.
    This is because.
    paint imperfections are caused by something abrasive rubbing against the nice smooth paint finish causing scratches that refract the light in random ways. Abrasives are anything from the junior’s bicycle dragging against it, to the dirty sponge (why you want to use the two bucket method and LOTS of water) when washing the car, to dust.

    Your car & car cover will have dust. When you open the “typical” residential sized garage door on your “typical” residential sized garage, and that breeze rushes in and you see it lightly ruffle the car cover, you have (the ODC part here) a mildly abrasive textile sand paper rubbing against your paint. This causes fine scratches, that refract the light in all the wrong/random directions.

    Your CQuartz (very good company, I have their stuff on my wheels) is a good tuff protection against the scratches. Don’t forget to use a ceramic coating specific quick detailer, if you use quick detailer on your car.

    So, lets see pictures of the car!

    California Car covers has the Noble pattern and has done many. Prices are reasonable and turn around time fairly quick.

    Jeff from Immac Reflect took a bunch of before and after pix that he said I can have. I'll post a few when I get my hands on them.

    The real beauty shots will have to wait until after I install the new woven aluminum wire screens. Currently, none of the body ventilation openings have anything covering them. The plan is to use the woven aluminum wire everywhere except between the tail lights. For that location I made an egg crate style grill out of very thin aluminum strips. Each opening is 1" by 1". The vertical strips are anodized black and the horizontal strips are anodized clear. The idea is for the verticals to more-or-less disappear, and for the horizontals to emphasize the width of the car. The Testarossa was my inspiration. The grill has not yet been mounted, so I dunno yet if I came anywhere near the goal.





    No plan for strips across the Noble tail lights!
