I am getting my BTTF DeLorean back from the modifier soon and I have been trying to find a car cover that will fit it. Can any of you guys that have a car cover for your BTTF DeLorean (with Mr. Fusion adding to the height) recommend which cover to get? The dimensions of this are odd and I am having trouble finding one that will fit without being too big.

Hi Kane,

I had the same issue, but to get one made costs a bomb. My workaround? Buy an SUV cover off eBay, they work just fine as they have elastic under.

Do you happen to have a link to the kind and size that you ended up getting? Just trying to figure out what size range would be best (especially the width)

Sure do Kane! Here's the one that I bought:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Breathable-Snow-Frost-Rain-Water-Resistant-FULL-Car-SUV-4x4-Cover-Protector-C4x4-/300847636060?pt=UK_Car_Exterior_Accessories&hash=item460bea9e5c

It fits perfectly. The eleastic grips to the underside of the flux boxes at the back and under the front bumper nicely, even with the Mr Fusion in the closed position.

Do be weary that they are quite thin and breathable, so don't have it on a transporter at high speeds, trust me on that one. The wind tears it to shreads on the rear exhaust vents, lol.

As many BTTF replicas as there seem to be these days, I'm surprised someone with sewing skills hasn't created one for sale to the community.

Oooh, I hadn't seen it finished. Nice.

Honestly, these cars all look alike after a while :)
