Same method I have always used tooCheck out CoverCraft also.
The cover will not necessarily be packaged from the factory in the manner that makes sense in this process, so get someone to help you to put the cover on the car first.
This is the process I do to take the cover off, this then sets you up to put it back on safely and efficiently.
Go around the car and unhook from the bumpers.
Then fold the sides into the middle of the car.
Then roll the cover up from back to front, resting the roll at the base of the windscreen, then roll the rest from there and lift off the car.
Now, putting the cover back on is a reversal of the process. Rest the roll at the base of the windscreen, roll out from front to back, fold down the sides and tuck back under the bumpers.
LOL that is the quest, and close to my dance.Francois: I'm sure every person who has used covers regularly has their way of doing things and the vehicle plays a big part. To my mind, there are only a couple different starting points as you said for a Mustang.
I unhook the front and roll up to the windshield. Then unhook the back and roll to the mirrors. Pull off the passenger side mirror section and roll forward. Finally, over to the driver side, pull the mirror, roll firmly, then flip the whole thing partly over itself and roll like a sleeping bag. I set "the roll" such that I'll know how to pick it up to unroll.
So, if anyone has a quicker method, I'm all ears because when it's covered, it's the uncovering that often keeps me from driving the car. :-)
I do not use a cover. Over the winter, its stored in a car capsule. Otherwise, it sits uncovered in the garage. I use this to remove dust and love it:
BTW: Talk all you want about the duster creating micro-scratches. Yes it does create microscratches.
Remember, every single time you touch your car, you scratch it. Whether you wash it with a mit, put a car cover on, use a microfiber cloth, or use a microfiber duster. You scratch it. Period.
Boz: I have to respectfully disagree as I am of the same opinion as @Rapid Red.You scratch it. Period.
Greg: I'm going to presume that you've experienced this with the soft cover but in case newer owners have not, here's the tip. The soft cover is EXTREMELY hydrophyllic and they STAY wet for a VERY long time, even when put through a dryer cycle..or two. Then, if you happen to miss this fact and install the cover, there will be big old wet marks on the car the next time you remove the cover.
I imagine that keeping it dry is fairly difficult where you are in Georgia with rain and the resulting humidity. I know it is down in my part of the country. So, the key is, keep it as clean as you can so the washing frequency and resulting drying quest are minimized.
