Why You Need to Buy a Oakland Model 42 Car Cover
When you think of car covers, you probably think of an accessory intended for luxury car owners and enthusiasts. On the contrary, a car cover is an intelligent investment for any car owner. Whether you keep your vehicle in a garage, on the street, or parked in your driveway, car covers can and will extend the life of your vehicle, both cosmetically and mechanically.
Car covers exist to protect your Oakland Model 42. They are intended for all vehicles, regardless of value, age, and kind. As you will find on our website, car covers are manufactured to suit a variety of needs and budgets. The specifics of your circumstance dictate the kind of cover you should invest in - be it intense sun and heat, harsh winters, or the subdued threat of dust and moisture, a car cover exists to cater to each circumstance. Or multiple of them!
Different Types of Oakland Model 42 Car Covers
Car covers are primarily divided into two kinds of categories. Outdoor covers, for protecting your vehicle against the elements, and indoor covers for protecting your car against more domestic hazards. Oakland Model 42 caters to both of these circumstances and offers covers of various materials, thicknesses, and treatments that are balanced to best protect your vehicle at a variety of prices.
Outdoor covers can be either be waterproof or weatherproof. While many sources will try to claim that waterproof covers are inferior to weatherproof ones (that the latter are susceptible to dew) this is only the case for poorly fitting covers. CarCover.com's best outdoor covers are waterproof and due to their snug fit, not susceptible to dew. Outdoor covers are the most common and most popular, and usually car owners' first investment.
That car kept indoors - be it in storage or in a garage - does not need a cover, is a common misconception. Although it is always better to keep your car inside if you can (and the regular impossibility of this is why we supply outdoor car covers), just being inside is inadequate to properly guarding your vehicle's exterior. The often-tight space of a garage in addition to the presence of dust and debris makes it very easy to make unintended contact and leave scratches in your vehicle's paint, both large and small. Indoor covers are designed, differently from outdoor covers, with these distinct perils in mind.
Oakland Model 42 Outdoor Car Covers
CarCover.com sells a range of outdoor car covers catering to an impressively broad selection of motor vehicles – you can check for yourself, right here on our homepage. At CarCover.com we make use of a ‘medalled’ tier system to convey, succinctly, what you ought to expect from a particular cover. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Shield covers are all eligible for outdoor use, though the Bronze Shield is recommended for indoor storage and should only be used outside in a pinch.
The Gold and Silver Shield covers are made up of five and three layers respectively. Each is constituted of two layers of Polypropylene PLUS and a layer of microporous film. The Gold Shield cover comes with an additional layer of Polypropylene PLUS and a soft fleece innermost lining. Our Gold Shield cover provides the most comprehensive protection of those we offer: it is 100% waterproof and provides the thickest buffer against extremes weather conditions and impact from small hailstones. The silver shield, meanwhile, is water-repellant and especially breathable. It will keep the elements away from your vehicle and faces no trouble in more moderate climates and weather conditions.

Oakland Model 42 Indoor Car Covers
An indoor car cover is a finishing touch for the clearly optimal car-keeping situation – that is, inside! While keeping your vehicle indoors is the best way – unavoidably better than even the best car cover – to keep your vehicle protected against the elements, there are still a few contingencies that leave your car vulnerable. Dust, mildew, and unexpected contact with all those things you might be keeping in your garage stand to disturb your car's safe haven.
As indicated above, our Bronze Shield cover is designed for indoor use: its porous material will keep moisture (and thus the development of mildew) away from the surface of your vehicle and its vulnerable rubber and metal components. Covering the vehicle prevents the accumulation of dust and debris which causes micro-scratches, and, even if the scratches themselves aren't visible, takes the sheen out of your car's finish.
More specialized for indoor use only, especially for the highly detailed or those meant for show, is our Black Satin cover. This cover is made up of a single layer of satin which is soft enough to leave no trace or mark when fitted to or removed from, your vehicle. Between our Bronze Shield and Black Satin covers, you have a cover for the two predominant indoor parking situations: storage, and show.
You should know: car covers are designed to fit in accord with one of three ideals. When you get a cover for your vehicle, it will either be a true custom, semi-custom, or universal fit. While a good fit is a parameter any kind of car cover should be measured against, each of these three styles achieve a good fit in different ways, and in balance with other consumer concerns. Budget, ubiquity, or obscurity of the vehicle and conditions of use all play into the balance each style of cover tries to strike in its design.
True or full custom covers cater to every idiosyncrasy of the vehicle in question. A full custom cover might be made to order or simply exist to cater to the market created by very popular cars, or those with extremely particular builds that can't be protected by more general structure covers. Semi-custom covers logically reflect a compromise between custom covers and universal fits. They are analogous to a shoe: made for your size, but certainly not your foot. Thus, semi-custom car covers fit a more general category of vehicle than the specifics of your model, all the while bearing its recognizable silhouette. Universal car covers, exhausting the only possibility remaining which isn't quite as general as a sheet or blanket, seek to fit as many vehicles as possible. While this sometimes results in a shoddy, poorly tailored product, it can also result in a highly adaptable cover – with clever strap setups and the like – that make the most of most situations.
Custom covers go to the extreme in order to hug every curve and contour of your vehicle. They bypass the need for client-side efforts like antenna hole cutting and ensure the greatest ease in dressing your vehicle. Their pockets, mirror-sleeves, and precise trim ensure that your prized ride is always announced – even when it is concealed. All these perks come – quite literally – at a price, however. Custom-fit covers can be hard to find in stock, if active stock is kept at all. Supply management – in addition to the fine-tuned stitching and sewing required for construction – make custom covers the most expensive and patience-demanding covers to invest in. Perhaps, most importantly, fully customized covers make a permanent cast of the always fungible shape of your car. If you are enthusiastic enough about your vehicle to invest in a custom cover, then it isn't far-fetched to assume that a vehicle is something you might be interested in modifying. Modifying a car that has been fitted with a custom cover, if not rendering the cover useless, at best makes it more like the much more affordable semi-custom cover that was opted against! For these reasons, Oakland Model 42 urges readers to weigh their options carefully beforehand.

Oakland Model 42 Universal Car Covers
Universal car covers, as introduced above, aim to fit as many different vehicles as conceivable. This comes at the expense of simplicity and a suitable kempt appearance. The best universal covers cannot help but face two troubles: tackiness, and troubleshooting. When things aren't adequately tailored, there is always excess or lack, and your covered vehicle is left with all buckles, flaps, and straps. It is this shiftiness that takes the convenience and duplicability out of covering your car – it quickly becomes difficult to cover (or uncover) your vehicle intuitively and consistently, when the cover dressing it isn't truly meant for it. Here at CarCover.com, we do not supply or recommend universal car covers. While it is true that a universal car cover can still be a product of reasonable quality at a reduced price, we hold to the belief that our custom and semi-custom covers are themselves attainable at such bargain prices that to take chances on a lesser product would be disadvantageous and unnecessary risk.
Oakland Model 42 Semi-custom Car Covers
As some readers might have inferred from the above paragraphs, we here at CarCover.com strongly believe that a custom car cover is the best solution for the vast majority of potential cover owners. As a sensible and flexible alternative to both fully custom and ‘universal’ covers, semi-custom covers are our specialty. To mitigate the compromises that come with not going fully custom, we offer solutions like the antenna patch which come with most of our covers, that allow you to cut and subsequently seal off the boundary of holes made for antennas in a manner that would otherwise, and more costly, be done in-factory for custom covers.
It goes without saying that the term ‘semi-custom’ has a lot of wiggle in it – wiggle between custom, and ‘universal’. Fortunately for you (and proudly for us) our semi-custom covers err comfortably closer to that desirable full custom fit, without the drawbacks. We put in the work to figure out how far a regularized figure can be stretched before it breaks – breaks the sense of proper dress, that is. Shopping with CarCover.com's comprehensive catalog of semi-custom car covers guarantees your satisfaction, and, your best dollar – just ask.
What A Good Oakland Model 42 Car Cover Looks Like
Investing in a car cover can be an intimidating endeavor – precisely because, more often than not, it isn't obvious what you should be looking for prior to making your decision. Many potential buyers may not think to consider anything beyond build quality – and while quality is of central importance, it isn't comprehensive. Consider, too, these following things before you make your purchase.
Let's begin with the obvious: you want a strong warranty and prompt shipment and delivery if you are going to be buying a car cover online. These requirements guarantee that online shopping introduces convenience into your life, rather than removing it. On this front, Oakland Model 42 has you covered – all our products offer urgent short-term (three or fewer days) shipping, and a lifetime warranty!
Your car cover is going to be doing more than just sitting on your Oakland Model 42 – it's going to be stored, carried around, and installed – be it by you, or someone else. For these reasons, it is best if a cover comes with a storage bag, integrated straps (for fluid installation), and a manageable weight. Storage bags ensure that the very elements you strive to keep away from your car don't gather on or in the cover which will later be in close contact with that same car. Weight can similarly sabotage the benefits of your cover: even a soft material might dim a mirrored detail if the layers above it amount to too much!
Finally, car covers are a desirable and substantial commodity. You want to protect your investment while it protects your car, and while it does that, it can't be locked inside. It can, however, be locked to your vehicle: this is where cable locks come in handy. All of CarCover.com's car covers come with a cable lock, which threads through the cover and affixes it without hassle to your car. This much can easily be said - dissuading would-be thieves from taking your cover (or the now unseeable contents of your car!), a cable lock does a world of good.
For all these needs and more, CarCover.com has got you covered!
