Your new custom cover is made with Block-It® 380 Series fabric from KimberlyClark. This is a 3-layer non-woven ultrasonically laminated composite. A film barrier is used for the middle layer to help provide a high degree of dust protection while remaining breathable and providing good UV protection and water resistance for your vehicle when used outdoors.
If your vehicle has an outside radio antenna which will not rtract flush with the vehicle body, you will have to provide an opening in the cover. We have included a non-corrosive plastic grommet set for the anten ha opening.
Mark the cover with the location of the antenna base and make a hole with a sharp pencil.
Use sharp scissors to make the hole opening 3/4 inch in diameter and install the grommet as shown in the diagram to the right. The outside groml11et ring fit is very tight. Place the cover on a CLEAN hard surface, pOSition the the inside grommet through the opening you made and then secure the outside grommet snap-ring in place using a rubber mallet. Do NOT use excessive force or the ring can be damaged. Do NOT install the grommet with the cover on the vehicle.
IMPORTANT - When installing the cover, remember to place it over the antenna before putting the mirror pockets over the mirrors.
1 - Using a large commercial washer without agitator, wash the cover using 1/4 cup of Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner. Put the cover in the washer and pour the cleaner in the tub after it's filled with warm water or, for some wall mounted commercial units pour it directly in the machine, then put in the cover and start the machine. Use a "gentle" cycle if available.
2 - Rinse the cover twice (2X) to remove all the cleaner.
3 - Air dry.
A cover may also be cleaned by turning it inside-out on the vehicle.
1 - Mix one ounce Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner per quart of warm water.
2 - Spray or sponge onto cover.
3 - Rinse with plain water (until no suds) and allow to air dry.

Your new cover is equipped with plastic (non-scratch) grommets, reinforced into the bottom edge on both sides of the cover. A plastic-coated, steel cable with padlock and keys is available to lock through the grommets and secure the cover to the vehicle. Consult your dealer for availability.
An added theft deterrent is the application of large letters on the sides of the cover. Print your name or license number on the cover to make it uninviting to a prospective thief. (Note - see warning for use of ink and markers)
NOTE - Car covers are not designed for use when towing. Serious damage can occur to the cover and the paint surface of the vehicle may also be damaged. If you use a cover for towing you do so at your own risk.
