Rover 216 Cabriolet (1998) car cover

#1 Post by supaspark » Sun Apr 12, 2020 10:07 am

Hi can anyone recommend a good car cover for my cabriolet while it is parked up in the garage usually over the wet winter
month's, the garage is a double warm and dry,but share's some space with her indoor's gardening equipment :cursing so the car acquires some dust on the body/roof, one with a Rover Logo would be nice but any good quality would do :)
Her indoor's is treating it :angel .

Thank You

I’ve got a semi tailored indoor cover for my 214 from Hamilton Classic, I’ve also got one for my Elise and the BRM. Both are good quality, fit well and were delivered quickly.

Do you have your red emergency roof, could use that as a part cover.

Thank you mates for that interesting information: I've just got one on the fleabay for the rather decent sum of £45 + shipping.
I think now it would have been nice to have it when I bought the cabby, because of the seriously distressed hood - full of holes - and the rain that was dripping inside. :scared
I'd hear of it long since but I thought it was a definite non obtainium...
Always happy to get some genuine goodies or accessories for my Rovers. :)
I feel it could give my cabby a slight old smell of authenticity like in the good old days. :cool
