Bought car cover, like it

I received the cover at the very tail end of the big rains here in the
northeast (there is SUN here in MA for the first time in almost two weeks
today), so I can't vouch yet for its water repellent qualities or lack
thereof.  It does fit nicely, though, and yes, the cover seems both soft and
thick enough to take the edge off of minor impacts.

Tomorrow I'm going to take some pictures, before and after hosing it down
really well to give everyone the full lowdown on the water shielding.  As a
source for car covers, I can't complain about Car Covers Direct.  They took
my order online and pulled it up on the telephone when I called their
customer service line to ask if it was in stock or would have to be
manufactured.  And it arrived faster than they warn you in their online
transaction:  they say 2-3 weeks for a custom cover and I got mine well
before that.  Just as a datapoint, they seem like a reputable outfit.
