Review & Install Video
This is the TruShield Standard Custom-Fit Car Cover for the 2005 to 2009 GT and V6 Coupe Mustang. This car cover is gonna be for the Mustang owner that's looking for a well-crafted, custom-fit car cover but that doesn't necessarily wanna spring for a Covercraft cover since they can be a little bit pricey in some people's eyes. The install, if you wanna call it that, is very easy. It's a one outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter. You can plan on spending a few minutes getting this cover on your car.
If you're shopping for a car cover, then whether you have a garage or not, you're probably concerned with keeping your Mustang's paint as clean as possible and protecting the clear coat. This cover is for indoor or outdoor use, but it's not your thin dust cover type of cover. It's actually a thicker, multilayer cover that's made to protect from the elements like dust, UV rays, tree sap, and all of the harsh components that are out there in the wild or in your garage. This is definitely a heavier cover that feels like it's really good quality. I don't think this thing is gonna have any trouble holding up outside in some pretty rough weather. It's not gonna rip or tear or deteriorate over time, and it's the type of fabric that things like tree sap can't get through. It's made from a synthetic fabric and it has a four-layer construction that's even machine-washable. Now, this cover is moisture, dust, and UV-resistant, but it's not waterproof so just be aware of that. If you're looking for a waterproof cover, this is water-resistant but not 100% waterproof.
One thing I like about this cover is the reinforced tie-down locations so you can really make sure that this thing doesn't come off of your car if you're gonna be using this outdoors and in some pretty crazy weather. And if you take a look here, there is a felt cover that's gonna keep the plastic from scratching your car when you put this on your car, and I think that's a nice little touch. Another thing that I wanted to point out with this cover is that it really fits great without using any kind of tie-down. It fits really snug and you don't have any excess fabric anywhere. It's a custom-fit cover. It's not a universal cover, which means that this was made to fit the GT and the V6 Coupes. Its design and the shape is for a tight fit. There's elastic around the bottom in some areas to keep the snug fit and it comes with a grommet for the antenna too. If you're looking for a cover for a convertible, you'll have to check out the other TruShield cover for convertible models.
If you compare this cover to other covers that are currently available on the website, this is the least expensive, custom-fit car cover costing right about $150. The Covercraft custom car covers are a touch more expensive, but they do have a little bit of ding protection built into them, so if that's something that you might want, you can always take a look at those too. And there is a non-custom cover that fits all years of Mustangs, if you wanted to check that one out instead, and a touchless cover.
The install, if you wanna call it that, is very easy. It's a one outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter. You can plan on spending a few minutes getting this cover on your car. So all you really have to do is just take the cover out and fit it over your car. Sometimes, the heavier custom-fit car covers can be a little bit difficult to get on the car because they are such a tight fit, but if you just get your side mirrors in first, that usually holds the cover in place pretty well and it'll make things easier for you. When you wanna remove the cover, it pretty much just folds up into itself so it's easy to store and put back on. Really, there are no surprises here and this is easy and straightforward.
That's gonna wrap things up for the TruShield Standard Custom-Fit Car Cover for the 2005 to 2009 GT and V6 Coupe Mustang. You can check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.
