A car is a precious commodity and often the first big investments any individual makes in ones life. One naturally would want to keep the car covered with a car cover and protect from dust and the onslaught of weather conditions.
Car covers become an extremely essential accessory, if one's car is an antique. With such cars, covering the various parts of the car is as important as covering the car itself.
In fact, if one observes properly one will remember that in vintage cars, car fender covers were an integral part of the car's anatomy. They did not just cover the fender of the car but also added a touch of grace and glamor to the car.
However, with the advent of modern technology, cars stopped being designed with flashy car fenders, as they are most frequently blended into the sleek designs of the cars. The need for car fender covers that declined. Neverheless, there are still vintage cars around and owners of these cars often need fender covers, which are quite difficult to find.
One of the best places to find a car fender cover for a vintage or antique car is the local junkyard. If there is a car that has been discarded in the junkyard, you might be lucky enough to find out a fender cover here.
The other alternative for car fender covers is to get one custom made. There are a lot of people who deal in various car accessories, including car fender covers. One has to approach them and specify the car's requirements. It would be ideal to bring the car for which the fender cover is to be made. Like tailors, these dealers will take measurements and custom make the cover for the owner, based on the specifications given to him on the color, feel and look.
However, such custom made fender covers are often expensive. Despite this, the thrill of seeing a good custom fender on one's choice car is a pride that has no substitute.
