Protecting fresh paint

892 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Cmar420
Hello. I may be posting in the wrong area, if so, please forgive me. I recently had my 83 Elco painted and unfortunately I don't have a garage. I'm looking for a good outdoor car cover to protect it from the elements, pollen, bird doo, etc. I live in east TN so the sun beats down in the summer as well. Any recommendations? Huge thanks in advance.

I wouldn’t use a cover just because of the constant putting it on and off not to mention other issues . Waxing it all the time also isn’t a great idea but using a high quality ceramic coating would be your best option IMO. A pro detailing place will charge 700-1200 bucks to do it and depending on how you wash (2 bucket method or foam cannon and ph neutral soap) are the best methods. The coatings can last 12-18 months.
