Hi all :)

I am going to need a Car Cover for my S2 after the new wrap to stop (or cut down UV light damage)...never had a car cover before so it needs to stop UV and be very soft on inside so no scratches to new wrap... the cover will be used outside but not bothered about it being waterproof .. Any ideas please from anyone that has used one ???? Or anyone have one for sale ???

All the best Brett :)

I think we get a discount as a TIPEC member with a company who do covers, don't have a copy of All Torque to hand. Can't remember the name for the life of me.


Hi Jim :)

Scoured mag but cannot see any Cover companies ?

Any idea which ?

All the best Brett :)

I have one of these http://www.carscovers.co.uk/PORSCHE-CAR ... -1995.html the Stormforce one.

It's very soft but I only use it to keep the car clean after a good wash and before a show. It will rub your wrap/paint like anything if left on. I can see a few flat paint spots and it's only been fitted maybe 3 weeks total in the year.

I am not a fan of car covers, better to put lots of polish on a car and leave it to the elements than correct the damage caused by a cover.

Hi Sean :)

I'm not a fan either but I need to stop UV damage to the wrap (hopefully) to extend its life from 2 years to maybe 3 or 4... in theory anyway...

I will ask the wrapper what he thinks as well..

All the best Brett :)

There was an R8 wrappped in that colour at Bromley Pageant. It looked good to be fair.

The company are going to Martini my 964, i just need to de-swirl the panels before i take it in.

It's good to see the work required pre wrap if you want a good finish.

All imperfections will show

Hi JASON :)

Pictures of worst part of body work...which I was not expecting there :) Tank being removed to weld in fresh steel plate,,,

By the way could i ask if picture file limits can PLEASE be increased...256 kb in this day and age of cheap webspace is a pain in the proverbial....I am finding it hard to resize a good quality pic DOWN to that tiny size :(

Out of the 4 pics i was going to post only 1 will go that small :(

All the best Brett :)
