Have a question regarding usage of Body cover. I am using parachute material cover not sure about the brand. I am going to use the cover only at home beacuse there is no shade or covered parking and there are couple of trees around with lot of pegions (hope that gives more clear picture :P). Now am not sure if I should wait for a hour or so that engine cools off and then cover the car or is it ok to cover the car imedietly after parking the car. I am worried if the engine heat can harm the cover and other thigns like paint etc.

I usually cover the car except the bonnet after 15 minutes or so; and wait till the bonnet is cooled (can keep hand without feeling hot) properly before covering the bonnet part also.

I also have car parked on the roadside .no covered parking. The shade from the building will help prevent the direct sun for the first half of the day .I can see small yellow spots every where ,on neighbours car also i can see that. Some of them told me that it is the job of honeybees near my home. But this yellow spot will completely go when i do a normal wash every weekend. I have a silver color cover for the car . Is it advisable to cover the car daily? I read somewhere that the covering will lead to minor scratches .Other thing i heard is that On rainy season if we put the cover it will build up moisture under the cover and chances of corrosion is more . Not sure any truth in this .

IMO, if the car is clean, then body cover can be used, especially after washing the car during the week-ends. But, when the car body has accumulated dust over it, then usage of body cover over the dust layer will definitely lead to more scratches. In case of long-term parking, body cover can be used for covering the car.
