[DML] Re: Flatbedding Delorean - to cover or not to cover?


It's best not to cover it, in my experience.  The cover will polish the 
stainless as it flaps around.  I've towed my car covered 2000 miles, 
and no matter how hard I tried to secure the cover, it still flapped 
here and there, leaving a few minor shiny marks.   The car should be 
towed facing forward though, if uncovered, lest the wind pull off the 
louvers and hood.
