Covercraft WeatherShield HP Car Covers

The next generation of the Weathershield High Performance fabric!

How can you make a fabric that’s been selected as an OE choice for luxury, high-performance and specialty vehicles and motorcycles better?The worldwide patented EPIC by Nextec® finish helps shed moisture and stops dust, dirt and tree sap from reaching your vehicles finish.  The fabric “breathes” to allow moisture, condensation and heat to easily escape from under the cover.  The encapsulation technology goes INSIDE the fabric, around the fibers, resulting in a silky smooth finish that glides over fine paint finishes.



Color permanency is the key to our new WeatherShield®HP – the color is extruded INSIDE the fibers for maximum fade resistance, NOT a surface dye coating.  The result is a cover that’s provides all-weather protection, machine washable, fade resistant AND environmentally friendly


  • Weatherproof and Waterproof – Fabric sheds water as soon as it hits the cover.
  • Superior Dry Time – Because the fabric sheds moisture it has an absorption factor of only 2%, compared with up to 40% for standard woven and non-woven fabrics. That means, if the cover has been sitting out in the rain you only need to shake it and the residue moisture will easily dry, in the trunk or on the car.
  • Breathable – Allows any heat or condensation under the cover to easily escape.
  • UV Resistant – Special additives prevent UV degradation and protect the vehicles finish and interior.
  • Dust-proof – Patented fiber encapsulation process prevents dust from filtering through the fabric.
  • Scratch-less – Polymers provide a silky smooth finish to the fabric and provide superior paint protection. Nextec fabric has been tested at 1,000 cycles on abrasion wheels without scratching (surface must be clean and waxed). The Weathershield HP is compact so you can store it almost anywhere.
  • Durable – The encapsulation process is not affected by heat or cold and the process won’t degrade over the life of the fabric.
  • Easy Care – Unlike non-woven fabrics you can clean most car-size Weathershield HP covers in your HOME washer and dryer.
  • Packs Small & Light – All this protection in a lightweight package that packs into 1/4 to 1/2 the volume of multi-layer, non-woven fabrics.
  • Double stitched overlapped seams
  • Neoprene elastic hems – the elastic in the front and rear hems helps hold the cover in place
  • Reinforced, non-scratch grommets – use a tie-down rope (supplied) or a vinyl coated cable and lock. (optional)

    Convertible Top Care Products

    Convertible top care made easy!A good convertible top cleaner and protectant will prolong the beauty and function of your convertible top. Whether it’s a fabric convertible top or vinyl top, it will benefit from regular maintenance. You’ll find that having a convertible is just as carefree and fun – even more so – when you have a clean, well-protected top. You can achieve proper top care in just a few easy steps.


    Vinyl Tops

    1. Regular cleaning of your vinyl top is as easy as washing your car. Use a gentle car shampoo, like Pinnacle Bodywork Shampoo, and we recommend the Green Long-Handle Tire & Wheel Brush with its feathered bristles to free the dirt from the textured vinyl of your convertible top. Wash the top just as you would the rest of the vehicle. Avoid shampoos that improve gloss. They are good for the paint, but unnecessary for the top.
    2. If your vinyl top is particularly dirty, you can use a cleaner to break up the grease and films that can plague your vinyl top. 303 Convertible Top Cleaner can be used on both vinyl and fabric, and it contains no soaps or detergents. RaggTopp makes an equally effective convertible top cleaner that not only cleans; it also inhibits the growth of mildew. Spray the top with water and then spray with a cleaner. Use a brush to gently scrub the vinyl. Rinse thoroughly.
    3. After you’ve cleaned the vinyl, use a vinyl protectant to preserve the color and texture of your convertible top. Skipping this step leads to the faded, cracked tops you see on the road from time to time. RaggTopp Vinyl Protectant comes highly recommended from the top manufacturers of vinyl products, like Haartz and Colgan Custom Bras. It has the best UV protection of any product on the market, and it repels dirt, grease, and oil. It doesn’t make your vinyl top glossy or greasy-looking. It will have the natural matte sheen of new vinyl.

    Your vinyl top will last longer if you protect it from the start. There’s not much you can do to reverse damage once it’s already been done. Proper vinyl care is as simple as weekly washes with a gentle shampoo, monthly cleanings with a vinyl top cleaner and monthly application of a vinyl top protectant.

    Fabric Tops

    Fabric top maintenance is essentially the same as vinyl top maintenance, except you want to select products formulated for fabric. Convertible top cleaners are usually suitable for either vinyl or fabric. Use a moderately stiff brush, like our Green Long-Handle Tire & Wheel Brush to loosen dirt from the fibers.

    It’s a marvel of modern science that fabric tops repel water as well as they do, but all good things must come to an end. Fabric tops are chemically treated during manufacturing to repel water and contamination, but these chemicals diminish as time passes. Exactly how long the factory repellant will last is dependent on usage and the environment, so it’s best to keep an eye on your top. Your regular washings should reveal a gradual reduction of water repellence. You’ll want to watch carefully for signs of water puddles or wet spots where water has clearly penetrated the fabric, its time to treat your top.

    We have found in our testing RaggTopp is one of the top products on the market. 303 High Tech Fabric Guard is also a quality product. Either will restore the repellence to factory specifications and keep your fabric top looking good. Be sure to apply protectant to a clean, dry top. Never saturate; light, even coats are always best. Reapply monthly to maintain an optimum level of water repellency.

    Clear Vinyl Windows 

    The windows on convertible tops often age faster than the rest of the top. Clear vinyl is notorious for yellowing, cracking, and scratching. There is a solution, though. Treat the windows with Diamondite Plasti-Care. This is a cleaner and protectant that prevents cracking and maintains clarity. Applying Plasti-Care from the day you buy your convertible is a great way to keep those convertible top windows clean and clear.



    If you already have damaged windows, Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze will remove contamination, lessen the yellowing and minimize or eliminate scratches. Seal the plastic with Wolfgang Plastik Surface Sealant for UV protection and long-lasting clarity.

    Taurus SHO Detail

    Did this car for a local forum member, and WOW it was terrible. I really didn’t think I would be able to do much with it, but it came out really nice.

    This was my first time using Meguiars 105 – it has a bit of a learning curve to it, but once I got that down, I almost felt like I was cheating. It broke down almost instantly, removed most defects in 1 quick pass, and finished up super nice, especially for such a strong compound. What also surprised me was how effective this compound was with the Flex, as it is designed for rotary + wool only.

    Process was as follows:

    -Wash with P21S
    -Clay with Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay (went straight in the garbage afterwards!)
    -Poorboy’s Spray & Rinse on wheels and tires
    -Poorboy’s Bold ‘N Bright on tires

    -Meguiar’s M105 Compound – Flex XC3401 w/yellow 6.5″ LC cutting pads
    -Meguiar’s M80 Speed Glaze – Flex XC3401 w/green 6.5″ LC polishing/finishing pads
    -Duragloss 105 Total Performance Polish – Flex XC3401 w/blue 6.5″ LC finishing pad

    The car is a 1993, and the driver’s side was repainted at one point. Initially, the driver’s side looked better since it was newer and less oxidized/swirled, but after the job was done, the 16 year old paint on the passenger side looked better IMO.

    After using M105, I switched to a green pad on used M80 Speed Glaze. 1 pass of each was used, but I did 2 passes on the roof since it was pretty bad.

    Overall, I got 95% of the swirls out (a few remained on the roof), but I was very satisfied in how the car came out, as was the owner.

    Here is what the car looked like when I received it:

    Glass Master Pro- Glass Cleaning Tool

    How many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t do windows”? Many people postpone glass cleaning until it’s absolutely necessary, like when it’s almost too dirty to see through. Why? It’s often because they can’t reach the entire surface and therefore can’t clean it effectively. But cleaning the glass on your vehicle is for more than visual appeal; it improves your visibility of the road.

    Glass cleaning doesn’t have to be a chore. The Glass Master Pro allows you to clean near and far without uncomfortable stretching or straining. Clean the bottom edge of your windshield all the way across from the driver’s seat! The triangular head cleans corners easily and pivots to clean sloped surfaces. Clean under glass-top tables without crawling under the table. Clean the top of tall bathroom mirrors without a step ladder. You can even clean floor to ceiling windows by just adding a pole to the handle of the Glass Master Pro.
