Ok, so something that almost never happens in my area of Dallas happened. It hailed. Probably quater-sized. Unfortunantly I was not paying attention to the news ((Thank you very much Mr. Jack Daniels)) to know that it was coming. So my baby, my poor baby, got a little dinged up last night. My question is, is there a car cover out there that has some sort of hail protection in it? I looked on this site and did not find a thread to address this, not saying it's not here, just saying I did not find it. Any and All help is greatly apprecieated!!

I don't know of any car covers that would protect against heavy hail. If you don't have a garage, but have the room, perhaps look at a fully enclosed car port.

I have seen some very cushy car covers but I dont know if that is good for your car... I remember hearing something about Moisture collecting under a heavy cover causing Rust and such...

I dont know..

This one says EXTREME weather conditions and HAIL
Block-it EVOLUTION Covers

I thank you all. I guess I will have to look into building a car port os something like it as I have no garage. We converted into a playroom for the kiddos a couple of years ago.

Look closer. lol

I have four 3foot piece of rebar pounded in to the ground at a 45 degree angle, and a hook mig welded to the top of eah rod....and a 1/2 ton load strip running up on the opposite 45 degree to the top main bar where it intersects an upright at each corner. Plus the 4 one foot posts and brackets the kit came with on each corner.

See:







I wasn't born last night, sista :lol

If a wind comes along that can take this thing down, I have bigger things to worry about than a car. lol

Then I would be in jail. :)

It was a kit that cost 300 bucks. The pieces of rebar were a few bucks each. The straps were 15 bucks a piece.

I doubt your gonna find a car cover that will protect against anything other than very small hail. You best bet would be a car port or a bubble such as Zip's.
