As our fleet of test cars at SakeBomb Garage has grown over the years, we’ve struggled with trying to keep our cars and customer cars at the shop clean, dry, and protected from the sun. Despite our best efforts, even cars stored inside are still subject to dust and grime, and cars stored outside, well, all bets are off. Depending on the season, outside cars are exposed to rain, dirt, wind, intense sun, and the inevitable bird attack.

To make matters worse, body kits such as 99 Spec conversions and other add-ons create fitment problems. Even the best universal car covers still allow water and dirt through, and only seem to last one season. The higher quality fitted covers we’ve tried are geared towards either indoor or outdoor use only with a very limited range of fitment. This provided a problem with our 99 Spec, aftermarket body kit, and track-prepped cars. This inspired us to look into making our own covers, which we’ve refined and tweaked over the past year for our own cars and customer cars which have come through.

After years of trial and error, we settled on what we feel is the absolute best indoor/outdoor material hands down, which successfully fends off rain, dirt, pollen, dust, sap, wind, harsh sunlight and UV, and birds These Weathershield covers, made by NexTec, are by far the best engineered cover material we’ve used to date, and are extremely lightweight and compact down into a bag that fits in the trunk. To fit some of the body kits and wings on cars at the shop, we revised our patterns further and further to specifically fit 99 Spec conversions as well as track cars and other features such as side skirts, diffusers, splitters, and front lips. As a side benefit the covers provide additional security from unscrupulous individuals looking to break into your car, and if used with a lock and strap, the cover creates one more step between them and even seeing what’s in it at all. To the untrained eye, you might as well have a Ford Taurus underneath the cover.

We also have less expensive materials available for the budget-conscious; Weathershield is definitely the best, but the other materials are still better than any other alternative we found. See below for more information on each material.



Weathershield Highlights:

• Severely hydrophobic – NexTec material sheds water instantly as it hits the cover
• Breathable - allows any heat, moisture, or condensation under the cover to escape while preventing moisture and dirt from getting underneath
• Weatherproof - fends off water, wind, dust, pollen, sap, paint fade, snow, and birds
• Packs small and light - takes up less space than a messenger bag
• Superior paint finish protection - silky smooth texture is even less abrasive than flannel
• Easy maintenance – wash in your home laundry machine
• Durable fabric - years of worry-free protection against the elements
• Extra security - keep your car safe and protected from unscrupulous attention
• Paint saver - you won’t have to wash your car as often. Call it eco-friendly, but here at SBG we just have more exciting things to do with our time.


NOAH Highlights:

• High Performance Non-Woven Fabric
• Dual Protective Outer Layers – Two outer layers of bi-component spunbond, utilizing side-by-side spinning technology. Each individual fiber is a balance of polypropylene and polyethylene that delivers both strength and softness. The light gray color does not attract heat and the dual layers are treated with UV inhibitors for extended outdoor use.
• Microporous Film Middle Layer – The barrier layer is breathable film, a proprietary stretch-film technology developed exclusively for Kimberly-Clark. The film is stretched and then subjected to a chemical process that creates microscopic holes smaller than droplets of water or dust, yet large enough to allow moisture vapor and heat to escape. This helps reduce the bulk of the nonwoven fabric, while providing an almost solid barrier against the elements.
• Soft, Paint-Protecting Inner Layer – A single, heavier layer of bi-component spunbond, utilizing side-by-side spinning technology. This heavier, single layer (as compared to a single outer layer) provides the "soft touch" necessary for today's water-based paint finishes.
• Outdoor or Indoor Use


Evolution Highlights:

• High Performance Non-Woven Fabric
• Maximum UV Protection – Highest UPF rating of all K-C fabrics.
• Soft-to-Paint Inner Layer – Bi-component technology blends polyethylene for softness and polypropylene for strength to assure gentle protection for paint finishes (inner layer is gray).
• 4-Layer Barrier – Protects against bird droppings, tree sap and industrial pollutants.
• Dust / Pollution Barrier – Two middle layers of melt-blown fibers act as a filtration barrier against most airborne pollutants.
• Dries Easily – Moisture is not absorbed by the fabric fibers.
• Breathable – Allows any moisture or heat under the cover to easily escape.
• Impact Absorption – 4-layer thickness absorbs impacts to help protect the finish from nicks, dings, dents and scratches.
• Outdoor or Indoor Use


Polycotton Highlights:

• Good Basic Indoor Protection
• Drill Weave Polycotton Blend
• Fabric Color: only available in Gray
• Indoor Use Only

Care instructions:

These covers can be washed in a home washing machine (without agitator). Add one cup of Simple Green concentrate, set the machine to cold, and spin to medium. We recommend completing an additional rinse-only cycle on cold to remove all detergents. DO NOT put the cover in the dryer; simply put it out on your clean car to air-dry. For light dirt and grime, simply rinse the car cover on the car with clean water and allow to air-dry.
