    Hi

    I used one with my old motor and it dulled the paintwork.

    Not that there is much paint to dull at the moment.

    I have always left my car out uncovered since then.

    Doesn't seem to do any harm.

    Thanks for the thought though .

    Regards

    Adrian

    I have a couple of classics under cover for several years no issues - they have improved and have a thin fleece lining now. But each to their own approach

    On their website they state


    • Do not use on a vehicle that has been re-sprayed using inferior equipment or one that is made of fibreglass or carbon fibre


    Why? Who knows?

    Probably worried about getting too hot - not usually a problem in the UK

    I put a cover over my Roadster whilst making up my mind about keeping it. I put an old sheet over the bodywork first and then put a Plastic type sheet over and tied down securely. I found on the front wing which caught most of the sun that there was a slight imprint of the sheet material in the paintwork, nothing much, but definetly something. I then used a soft lined cover for the rest of the time. David.
