Car cover scratching paint?

I bought a 96 SVT Cobra Black / Black leather last month. Prior owner took very good care of car and kept in a heated garage. We needed to clean out our garage to make room for Cobra so we bought a brand new custom fit Noah cover from Covercraft. Despite only putting it on a clean car it appears to be scratching the paint. The inside seems soft enough and we are always careful putting it on and off, but everytime we remove it there are new scratches. Most come off with Maguiars Scratch 2.0. But not all. Is this normal? I plan on calling Covercraft on Tuesday. Thanks, Spiney-Dave

Re: Car cover scratching paint?

You are always gonna have some small issues with a black car because it shows imperfections the most. Mine is garaged all the time and still gets tiny scratches here and there. It could be from the way you wash it to the way you dry it or from just dusting it off. Black cars are a constant battle to keep clean. It sounds like you are doing the right thing as far as keeping it clean and scratch free so the key is to maintain by using a little wax every now and then to touch her up.

+1 you are doing more then I am, and mine ends up getting damaged more being in the parking garage where i work with people weaving in and out of cars. Try looking for black specific wax because it has some black favored coloring to the wax and doesn't tend to rub off white and flakey
