Has anyone out there ever bought a car cover specifically for a MM? I'm looking into buying one to keep the frost off, but most of the custom fitted ones don't list the Mini Marcos as an option (though some list Marcos as a manufacturer) and those that do are only selling universal ones.

I have a fabric shower proof one had it for years if I remember correctly it was just a generic small sports car cover but fits reasonably well.

I spotted that one Tim, they're just semi-fit ones. However, I've decided to order a cheap one off eBay and see how it goes - I'll only be down a few quid if it doesn't work, and I'll probably find another use for it anyway...

I bought one of those Classic Additions car covers for my Marcos and it was way too big. Excess material was laying on the floor all the way around. I complained, but was told that they don't make a smaller one. I still have the cover and use it on my Frog Eye Sprite and it's even slightly too big for that.

Bought a cheap "car top" cover from eBay, covers from halfway down the bonnet, all the way back and over the rear lights!

OK thanks Neil. Expensive car covers will have to wait, at least until I've paid for the MOT failure repairs. Doh!

Sorry but haven't been on the forum for some time. Need to get a bit more active again..

The cover Neil showed is indeed mine. The cover is made by Classic Additions in the UK. It fits perfect, at the time it was made there were no pockets for the mirrors because they were not yet on the car. Don't ask me why the cover was already on order because I have no clue . Now it has covers and fits like a glove.

Please don't mention the mess



It is a custom one, you can see it on the homepage of Classic Additions. First foto on the left. https://www.classicadditions.com/
