How do you cover your classic when garaged?

At the minute I use an indoor dust cover purchased from a local car shop to protect my spider, however I really like the red fitted covers that alfaholics sell with the AR logo on the front. any one use one? they do look really good:thumbup:

Yes, I did buy a red one with the logo and it looks great :thumbup:

Except I haven't used it yet this year as the weather is so mild. I have taken the Spider out at least once a week over the past couple of months.

I bought the red one with logo from Classic Alfa recently after I got the shell back. It looks great and fits well.

I know indoor car covers are often used, but I don't quite understand what protection if any they give, does anybody actually know?

Be careful.

If your storage area is damp, then any cover that might hold the excess moisture in the against the paintwork will cause micro blistering.

This happened to me. Stored the car in a dry, but steel roofed garage (condensation) the moisture level was high, after a single winter, the car cover had caused micro blistering along the tops of the wings.

The cars now in a different garage, which doesn't have a steel roof. But to make sure I have a moisture level meter, and a de-humidifier that kicks in when the level is above 75%.

I've got both types you mention, but I use the grey lighter type, as it's just easier.

In my case I wanted dust protection and as I have a very narrow single garage I get a little additional dirt and scratch protection along the sides when I squeeze past.
