There was some one on here that mad a wood box that the car could be pushed into it was made of pallets and had a door on one end then covered with a green tarpaulin to keep the water out and make it look better

Second that for the Cartoon

Have the inside one not cheap but work very well Plus it keeps the battery topped up at the same time

Try eBay for a second hand first as there might be wait for a new one

I have a Coverdale Platinum for an MX5 - kind of lycra 3 layer cover, feels very nice, tight (tailored) fit to the body - approx 170

&

a Stormforce cover for another car. 4 layer. Much looser fit (still tailored fit but not stretchy skin tight) but much thicker / heavier duty material. Also around 150-170

Both covers worked well through last winter but I don't think they would be great long term solutions. They both have tie down loops and come in a nice storage bag.

The Coverdale is an excellent fit, good in the wind but does seem to trap a bit of moisture underneath.

The Stormforce is a bit baggy but I think this might help keep it 'dryer' underneath as it gets a bit more air circulation and flaps around a bit to shed the water. A was always worried about it getting ripped off in the wind but never had a problem.

Both cars now kept indoors so can't really comment on longevity.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Tilly
