CoverKing Indoor/Outdoor Car Cover

For Sale. Lotus Elise 18 month old Coverking Mosom Outdoor / Indoor Car Cover. $85 firm shipped within the continental USA.

After a rain, it sometimes leaves a light dusting of white powder (almost like a baby powder) that I have to wipe off. I'm tired of doing that so it's up for sale. No tears, or damage of any kind. As this cover is used it is being Sold AS IS. Custom fit. See pics of it on my 06 Elise. Will it fit an Exige? I don't know.

Coverking Coverbond 5 / Mosom Plus is the king of all non wovens sold on the market, best cover for hail and dent protection. Its the only non woven material with 5 layers of protection built in. Coverking starts with the top layer of polyester spun bond ( other manufacturers use polypropylene which has little or no resistance to UV degradation). Coverking adds 2 layers of polyethylene micro porous film + meltblown layer (most competitors use one or the other). The 4th layer is spunbond and the 5th layer (a Coverking exclusive) is polyester felt to protect you vehicle's finish. Each layer is fortified with the finest UV retarding agents in the manufacturing process.

Mosom is a great choice for all-round car cover use, suggested for most conditions except extreme sun, snow or ice - in which case we suggest Stormproof Car Cover. Mosom is a non-woven material, so in the unlikely event a rip occurs in the material, it will not run. As with all Coverking Custom Car Covers, Mosom Covers are custom made to order. Mosom car covers are very breathable, almost as breathable as Stormproof. If your vehicle is exposed to rain for long durations, Mosom or Stormproof are both excellent choices. If protection from light nicks, scratches and light hail is required, Coverbond Car Cover 4 is the best choice.

Mosom Car Covers
Mosom is soft to the touch and won't scratch a vehicle finish (assuming the vehicle is clean when the cover is applied). Mosom is available in gray color. There are other materials on the market which have the same basic construction - a micro-porus film layer laminated to two layers of Spunbond Polypropylen. Coverking developed Mosom in-house specifically for use as a car cover material, and has added the highest levels of U.V. inhibitors - which prevent degradation in sunny climates. Coverking tests all it's materials, including Mosom, to be compatible with automotive paints and clear coats. Because Coverking is TS16949 and QS-9000 certified, all materials used for Custom Car Covers are tested and OEM approved. Mosom Custom Car Covers are available only with Coverking's famous Custom Fit and the unique pattern designs which result in the fewest seams possible - Compare the images above, Coverking uses the fewest seams to produce a perfect, custom fit without the "patchwork" look created by sewing small pieces together. Although it costs more, Coverking's designs result in superior fit, looks, and less chance of seams failing or leaking. Mosom Plus is a revolutionary premium all-weather fabric used by Coverking for our custom car covers. This material is made in Taiwan. The technical name of this material is Spunbond Polyester laminated to 1 layers of Meltblown Polypropylene laminated to a special micro porous film laminated to Spunbond Polyester. The specification Coverking uses for Mosom Plus is far superior to other polypropylene based materials.

Coverking developed Mosom Plus in-house. We purchase the film and separate layers, then have a laminating company fuse them together. Coverking uses spunbond polyester for both outer layers. Most competitors use spunbond polypropylene. Polyropylene is inherently less UV resistant and is more likely to degrade with exposure to UV rays emitted from the sun. Coverking also adds additional UV retardant, which ensures even longer stability in the sun. Coverking also insists on the highest quality film - it is both UV stable and over engineered to stand up to the rigors of car cover use. Finally, Coverking insists on the heaviest inner and outer layer materials. Most other companies use materials about 15% lighter than Coverking.

Coverking uses wax coated thread in overlapped, double stitched seams. The wax coating expands in the pierced hole created during the stitching process, to help cover the hole. Once again, some competitors take the cheaper route by using an ultra-sonic welding of the material instead of sewing. This process is far cheaper, because it melts the fabric layers together. It also doesn't use any thread. Unfortunately, the area melted together becomes very hard and examples of scratching the vehicle surface are not uncommon.
