Car cover recommendations?

Anyone have a car cover recommendation for our old FJS?

Any reason why a pre 80s model wouldn't fit in a 91 car cover?

1977 Jeep Cherokee Chief
360 w/ MC 4350
All stock but ignition and slightly modified suspection
Original paint, garaged/non-op for over 15 years

Sure it would, but who wants to leave it sit long enough to need a cover?

I use one of platinum shield car covers. I live in the North East so I get a good mix of conditions. All the other cheapo options last about a year until they're just worn out. The platinum shield one is much thicker than the knock-offs, like the look-a-like one on amazon, and I have not had any leakage problems around the seams. Also, mirror pockets are annoying and not needed.

Of course, a garage would be my preferred "cover".

I use a 7-layer SUV cover from ebay. Cant recall the seller/brand. The seams are sealed and I have used same style for several vehicles. My wagoneer stays in the garage, but I use it in there as well to protect it.

Same type of cover was used outside for several years on the wagoneer and on a cherokee years ago. They have a soft inner layer and are water proof within reason.
One day I will wake up and realize that my jeep is day, I just know it.
