    Does anyone have any preferred car covers that they can recommend? I hear that the Boss car cover isn't the softest material and doesn't necessarily protect the car from much more than just dust. Looking for something soft and somewhat thicker to keep the car protected fro people walking by the car in the garage, etc.

    Any cost-effective recommendations are appreciated!

    Covercraft dustop here, it's kinda like flannel on the inside. It's not an outside cover.

    I use the existing cover and then throw a couple $7 packing quilts on top for added protection.

    I have the covercraft dust top on both my Boss and a frame off 1970 442 restoration. They are great covers for scratch, dust, and light bump protection. They are not for use outside with no water or weather protection.

    If you need outdoor protection, covercraft makes a full line of form fit covers in various materials.

    Thanks for the pointers! The car will remain inside the garage so I'm not concerned about water proof covers. Sounds like the cover craft brand is the way to go...but $400+ :eek:

    That's for an inside/outside special magic make my detail person happy cover. You probably don't need all that.

    I threw on the Boss cover last night to see how it felt on the car. It definitely feels more course than I would like. Would be scared that it starts to scratch the reflective decals on my '13. Ideally I can find something soft on the inside just to protect the car in the garage when people walk by the car.

    It should be around $200. I had similar concerns regarding pricing, but the quality is amazing and it really does protect the car extremely well.
