Camaro Car Cover....by Tom Henry

So, for the first time since I picked up the car, I finally decided to put the car cover on and see how she fits. I must say, she fits like a GLOVE!!!

This cover is simply BAD @SS. It has two hard plastic rings on either side which are reinforced (extra padding as well to prevent scratches) and two straps as well for threading a cable through which goes under your car and will lock the cover to the car....since no matter what happens, there will always be peckerhead thieves who would love to have your car cover.

When I ordered the car, I ordered it with the silver and black car cover. Tom switched it out and surprised me with this embroidered cover. I never did put it on as you really don't want to cover the car for the first 3 months or so (info straight from the GM site).

Oh...and the underside of the cover that sits on the car itself is SUPER SOFT. Make sure you don't happen to accidentally let that soft part touch the dirty ground...as that'll spell disaster for your paint...as with any car cover.

Thanks for the kiddos compliment. They are my pride and joy...two handsome little guys. I got a kick out of the fact they were wearing Bears Steelers shirts today for the game. And how about my bears!!!! Mama wasn't so happy, though....muah ha ha ha haaaaa

Forget the shorts...lol. It will never be posted up again. HA! Nah...it was nothing...(looks around)...

Thump protection, no....Leaning a door against it would never hurt the car....but the person actually placing the door against my car would get a good swift kick in the lower region. Rain.....not sure. The outer fabric seems woven pretty tightly. I didn't try it nor have I ever been told it will repel or bead off the rain. I really need to look into that one. If not, I'll just scotch guard the hell out of it.

This cover is flannel lined, 100% cotton, and scotchguarded. The soft lining keeps it from getting scratched when someone rubs up against the car. I used one for years on a black showcar I had.

Why no cover for the first 3 months or so? Do you have a link so I can read up on that? We are planning to get a cover but had never heard of the 3 month wait. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the info. You have so far the best looking car cover!

How is it for protecting the car from the outdoor elements?

Yup. It's all included in the instructions for the car cover.

GM says not to use it so the paint can cure.

I'm not sure where Tom ordered it, but I'm sure you could get in touch with him to place an order. His info is in my sig....either shoot him an email or just pm him and I'm sure he'd be more than happy to help you out.

It says "not recommended for extended outdoor use", We have another cover for that. I can sell them embroidered or plain, the embroidered ones are $360.

I wonder what they consider that to be? One rain storm or dust storm, or months of the elements.

How does the cover look?
