Hi all,

 

I am looking to purchase an outdoor cover for my 370z roadster while I'm waiting for the new garage to be built. 

 

Any recommendations from those that have already bought one of which one to get and where from? Any advice would be much appreciated as there are lots of options out there and keen to get one that fits well.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Will

I recently did exactly the same whilst my garage was being extended. 😁

 

I chose a stormforce outdoor cover with the locking kit. Shame mine was for a 350z otherwise could have done a deal. Mines going up for sale now I'm done with the garage and will be replacing it with a basic indoor cover in case I need to do any dusty woodwork inside.

 

I really rate the stormforce but it was pricey IMO. Only thing to bear in mind - it fits snuggly so if you have aftermarket spoilers it may not fit.

Personally not a fan. All covers do more harm than good imho.

 

Yes heard this too, hence why i want to ensure i get the right one for the time period it will be outdoors, particularly as it is a roadster

Scratch the paint / swirl marks and condensation. Would rather keep it un covered and clean it.

Thankfully I've experienced none of the above.

Condensation? 

 

They can cause the paint to "sweat" amongst other issues as others have said. Years ago I had a milano red Type R that I had under cover for roughly 6 months, which caused the paint to come out all blotchy and faded in places, particularly corners of the vehicle that were facing the sun

Yep. Only covers worth using are dust covers inside a dry air-conditioned garage. Ive been talking to my brother about us installing one in the garage and expanding to be able to store another 2 cars lol

 

Not like its being rented out or extended at the moment. Covers in general not ideal in our weather.

 

If you lived in a consistently dry country then sure. Morning sweats are no good for the car. Had that with the Nismo so stopped using it.

Hi Andy it was bought from a uncaring owner but now the roof works  with bungees I fitted and a trip to Surrey on Friday .

Now some body work. 

Would like to get bonnet & front bumper done 

It needs more work but money is always the problem.
