Car covers

We brought our 2SS home yesterday! Awesome car.
Today I was looking at the car cover we bought from GM for the car.
I have some concerns on putting it on and scratching the paint!
Those covers are a simple nylon type material with no kind of cloth or padding in the inside. Has anyone else have the same thoughts or is it something I don't need to worry about.

Should be ok. Cats will jump on it. You should see my vic red truck it has 1000's of scratches from cats, good for another thread almost. But anyway they get on covers too.

I would not worry about the cover just hand wash like others have said and you'll be fine.

I have used covers for years cause I don't have a garage and only problem is washing them cause they get stinky and full of dust.

I thought the same thing but figured GM would know better than to make a cover that scratches, I am keeping my fingers crossed

I heard it was just a dust cover to be used indoors, like in your garage. We ordered the Noah fabric cover from California Car Cover. I couldn't see paying $350 for a dust cover just because it has stripes.

Yea that's a good point it's indoor for garage. You'll need the multi layer outdoor.

They won't scratch the paint.

The Accessories/GMPP catalog says it is an outdoor-rated cover which is why I ordered one but you know how that goes. Kind of like the California covers though.

cost about $162. i will use mine in the garage, but they have several grades with several different amount of plys. they boast about how soft and no-scratching the inside layer is.

I would recommend the California Car Cover ones. I bought a storm weave one from them and love it. Also my Camaro is featured in the magazine as the car for the storm weave covers.

Maybe padding on the inside would trap small rocks/sand that would scratch the finish?
