CAR, VAN, TRUCK, WAGON, SUV COVERS INSTALLATION AND CARE:
When installing your car cover for the first time, make sure that your car is clean.
Caution. Please read prior to use of this cover.
Never cover a wet vehicle.
Not liable for repainted surfaces or lacquer paint. Do not use any cover on freshly painted vehicle for at least 6 month. The paint has to cure before any cover can be applied. It is the best to check with your painter or body shop for recommended "cure" time. Use of any cover on a repainted vehicle may cause damage that is not due to the cover, but due to the new paint.
Do not cover the tail pipe or exhaust
A hot exhaust and muffler can burn you and melt your cover
Be sure the hood and engine are cool before you put on your cover
Never cover a convertible with the top down, windows or sunroof open. Do not spread cover across an open sunroof of T-roof.
This cover is water repellent but it will not prevent water from reaching the surface of your vehicle.
How to install your cover.
Remove or retract your antenna. See below if you have a fixed antenna.
Remove cover from bag
Pull your cover over the roof of your vehicle from the front to the back.
Secure the cover at front bumpers. (A "FRONT" tag is sewn on the inside of the cover so you can tell what side the front is)
Pull cover over the top of the car.
Drop your cover over the sides, then fit elastic hem of your cover under the rear bumper and corners of your vehicle.
Check your antenna-many antennas simply unscrew at their base. If your antenna cannot be removed or retracted, you will need to make a small hole in your cover for it. An antenna patch is included with most covers for antennas that don't retract.
Put your cover on as much of your vehicle as you can without covering the antenna.
With a sharp pencil or pen, carefully push a small hole in your cover.
Peel the backing from your antenna patch and, centering the hole in the patch over the whole of your cover, adhere the patch to the outside of your cover.
Press the patch down firmly. Carefully lift your cover down over your antenna, threading your antenna through the hole, and finish fitting your cover.
Your cover is equipped with grommet holes on both sides of the cover. You can use these holes to tie or lock down your cover. We suggest a car cover cable lock.
To secure your cover on your vehicle, attach one end of rope or cable lock (sold separately) to a grommet set in the side of your cover. Toss the rope under the vehicle and tie the rope to the grommet on the opposite side.
Please secure your cover as we are not responsible if your cover blows away or is stolen.
A convenient storage bag is provided for your cover. Be sure the cover is completely dry before you store it in storage bag.

High Winds: If you are located in a high wind area be sure to tie down your cover using the grommets provided. Do not rely solely on the elasticized bottom of your cover to provide maximum protection from strong winds.
Freezing Weather: In unusual circumstances, a layer of ice may form between your vehicle and the cover. This layer of ice must be thawed before removing the cover. You may expedite the thawing process by pouring warm water over the cover and gently lifting the cover as the ice begins to melt. If any resistance occurs,
Avoid trapping moisture under the cover. I your vehicle is outside for long periods or under snow, trapped moisture can sometimes cause paint to become cloudy. We recommend removing your cover every 30 days. Let your vehicle dry completely before reinstalling the cover.
