A note about the fiber reinforced tarps... they are NOT watertight, or moreexactly, not watertight after the first windy day. Flap around in the wind
a bit and they are full of holes. Use a vaper barrier under it of 3mil or
thicker standard sheet plastic drop cloth... that will remain water tight
unless it get punctured.
Any tarp over the car will chafe the paint up though so if you have a new
paint job dont cover it.
the '72 doesn't have a nice paint job [ yet. ] so it's ok. and better than puddles in the car.
It will get the garage when I clear it out. it has a car cover from rocky mountain motorworks. I'm not sure what quality or material it is. but it seemed more water proof. [ can't look it up on rocky mountain motor works site because they are merged now with mid america motor works, and they don't seem to list a type 3 cover. ]
it seemed the more water proof, and indeed it was. the canopy drooped into the roof rack area on the car, and formed a puddle, that leaked through the canopy, and formed a puddle in the roof rack area on the car cover. [ filled it up. ] there were only a few drips through underneath the car cover on the car. So. It held up in the rain adequately.
Now I'll have to get that screen printing shop in the garage sold, and moved out, to at least get one car in covered parking.
