Re: [Chrysler300] Car Cover

Yup. That's exactly what I used. The super-thin stuff. The guys who have seen my 300H at Carlisle know that I used my cover every evening without any scratches. Just gotta keep a good coat of wax on it.

I'm talking hyper thin clear plastic, not the thicker type. No way around a car cover not scratching paint.

I would never use painters plastic on any of my cars. It traps moisture and out-gasses. I used it many years ago on a Corvair, and it ruined the paint. The plastic out-gassed onto the paint and no amount of rubbing or polishing took out the marks. I had to repaint the entire car. I use a cover called Sunbrella from Weathertech. Not cheap, but works well, doesn't scratch the paint, and easily stores in its own bag. I used it for many years on my black 300H. Another good cover is Weathershield. I use it on my Jeep.

Car covers scratch paint so bad. If sitting for a long time just get super light painters plastic and lay on top. Just make sure the car is very clean before covering

Be sure to get a premium cover.  A fellow member recently reported paint damage to his car from motion by the cover while under that cover in his garage.  Must have been a little drafty in there.    You may have to do something special to accommodate a radio antenna.

Even though I keep my 64 300 inside, it still gets dirty between outings, so I need a lightweight cover, any recommendations on what size will fit?
