I'm looking to buy a "cover" for the B convertible. Mostly kept in the garage, but might leave it outside sometimes. There are many, many brands with a lot of different levels of protection. Which brand, model is the best value for the money?

I've had two. Somehow the bodyshop misplaced one so I recently bought a "Stormproof" cover from Coverking for $249.
It's much lighter and seems to be very durable. I'll know better in time but so far I'm happy with it.,

I keep all my cars indoors and covered. The inexpensive Budge covers from Amazon work well for dust and pests.

I use an old bed spread for inside. For outside, you want one to fit correctly so it won't flap in the wind. That rules out generic cheap ones.

I have a Bugeye and an MGB covered outside for almost 2 years now since I lost my shop and I’m very satisfied with the platinum series covers, but they do increase the humidity level so you need to take them off from time to time. I have some cloth covers for indoor storage which I will use once the shop and garage are finished for basic dust and critter protection.

When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life. John Lennon
