Well, after virtually years of waiting my SSR will be here on Wednesday 4-21-04. As a complete newby on this site, I've got a couple of questions:

1) SSR #???? I assume this refers to the last 4 numbers of the VIN?? (Sorry, I told you I was a NEWBY!)

2) Has anyone used the GM Accessories car cover. I would appreciate comments on this item.

THANKS!!!

Car Cover

Bought my cover from California Car Cover (online) - works GREAT - I have to park mine outside and the nightly deposit of Texas humidity on a black vehicle renders washing useless. Been a lot happier since I bought the cover and am pretty much under a minute getting it on and off now.

Thank you! guys for your info. There is an SSR specific car cover available from GM Accessories - I was wondering about the quality of this item.

The Cal Car Cover is SSR specific. I'll try to remember to get a pic tonight. It was $189. What's the GM accessory price??

I was quoted a "discounted" price of $265.00.

Blast,

First of all, welcome.

Secondly, the car cover is great, easy to use, fits like a glove, and really does its job.

I paid $300 from a dealer but they are on Ebay cheaper.

Good luck with your new baby.

Rick :cool

SSR cover

I'm one of the cheap guys. My SSR is garaged so I wanted a cover to keep the dust and stuff off. Covercraft has a 3 layer cover that fits a full-size reg cab truck that works well on the SSR. The only problem is the extra large areas for the mirrors, but otherwise it works and fits well. Price was $80 and can be ordered at most auto supply stores. This is just another option. :)

Cheaper on line than at dealer.

Which - the GM product or the Cal Cover (must be the GM, 'cause I got the Cal Cover online)
Yeah, the Cal Cover is as cheap as you can get on line. But the dealer is higher on the SSR Factory cover than it can be had on ebay.
Heck I bought a cheapie on ebay for $25 and $12 shipping. It will keep the dust off and doesn't fit too badly either. But the quality of the GM one is top notch. Not that the Cal Cover isn't; I own two Cal Covers - one for my 75 Camaro and one for my 72 Chebbie pickup. Cal Covers are nice. But that black factory cover with the SSR logo is hard to beat.

GM car cover.

Mine arrived today. It's made of black, I think it's called, gaberdine cloth. It's a lot heaver that those $49 jobs at the parts store.

Comes with a storage bag. It's a tight fit unless I carefully fold and roll it. I don't think its possible to just start stuffing one end into the bag and have it all go in. The filled bag is about the size of a military duffel cut in half.

Haven't tried to put it on yet, is there one way to do it that is easer than others?

Get it on the car one time. Try to position the mirror covers first - then everything else seems to go easliy. When you take it off - take each side to the middle center line, then roll it up from the back - leaving the front at the end. Then it's really easy to put it back on. My biggest problem is taking it off in the morning with a bunch of heavy dew on it. Can't really roll it up, cause I don't want mildew on it. Been hanging it on the back fence.
