I'll defend him because 1) he clearly identified this as a first world problem which imo sets the proper tone. And 2) I'm having the exact same experience with my car cover and it irritates me, so I can relate.Are you seriously posting about wrinkles on a car cover for a car most people cannot afford? Wow...
I am quite OCD too, but this is LOL SMH WTF DELETE IMMEDIATELY POSTI'll defend him because 1) he clearly identified this as a first world problem which imo sets the proper tone. And 2) I'm having the exact same experience with my car cover and it irritates me, so I can relate.
Yes. Junkman2000 (youtube channel about auto detailing) says that he'll never put his cover on a car unless he just detailed it. especially if parked outside where it might be windy. Otherwise anything trapped between the cover and the paint simply becomes an abrasive. (And, if the car isn't clean the cover might pick stuff up and begin collecting more and more between uses unless you wash it too compounding the problem.)Can covers damage clear coat?
Scratches can also occur as you pull on/off the cover. Even a microfiber-lined car cover can scratch the finish from friction. Most car-cover scratches are minor and can be polished out with a good scratch remover product, but it's just annoying if you're OCD about your vehicles. Fold up your mirrors (just let the car-cover mirror pockets hang empty) as that tends to be a major catch point for a car cover on any car.Otherwise anything trapped between the cover and the paint simply becomes an abrasive.
Thanks Shelbyguru I will give that a try!Wow! I will help you out! Fold the cover properly from the bottom sides up to the center then, repeat which means the now folded bottom edges again to the middle (center of the car). Now, start from the front and fold what is left in two foot sections toward the back of the car and place in the trunk for a couple weeks. The weight of the cover will get rid of those wrinkles and you will only have four total pleats (fold marks) running the entire length of the car!
Been working great for me for over 30 years with outdoor covers!
