    Car cover options for kgc10?

    Just curious if anyone has come across any car covers for the hako coupes other than the one offered by Victory50? From the pictures, it doesn't seem very well fitted for a $500 two layer cover.

    I know there are a few companies that make custom ones in the states but have no idea where to look in the Japanese market.

    Thanks for any help. :tu:

    I bought a car cover from calcarcover.com when I figured out that the BMW 2002 was almost exactly the same dimensions as a Hako

    I was pleased to confirm that it fits very nicely indeed.

    Hi Peter,

    Umm actually no, lol... not on hand.

    I actually just sent the car cover back to have fender mirror pockets sewn in now that I've confirmed the size was spot on.

    I could have asked for an additional pocket sewn in for the rear spoiler but chose not to.

    I'll take pics when I get it back.

    Thanks a bunch Eric. That's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. It's great that they can sew the pockets in for the fender mirrors. I was about to sneak out and measure one of the taxis here with the fender mirrors (probably closer in dimensions to a hako sedan tho).

    I'll have to see what cover brands are available here for the BMW 2002 shape.

    Oh you have a sedan?
    I didn't realize that...

    I believe the sedan is like 3" (75mm) longer than the coupe

    Look at the dimensions, the Hako coupe is already longer than the 2002 but it provided me with a nice "fitted" look.
    Trying to get the 2002 cover onto the Hako sedan might be too hard though...

    You might need to look online for different classic cars that might be a better fit...

    Sorry for the confusion. Its a coupe. I should be picking it up this week and I'll be sure to get some pictures up.

    I was just thinking of the Taxis because that was the first modern car with fender mirrors that came to mind.

    Eric, thanks for posting! Do you have a contact you spoke to? Maybe we can setup a hako group buy?

    Re: Car cover options for kgc10?

    I just asked a friend to do a search for me here in Japan (since I don't know the proper terminology yet ) and he came up with two more companies in Japan that sell covers for Hakos.

    http://www.eonet.ne.jp/~pro-ff/page009.html
    and
    http://www.wrappers.co.jp/

    The first one doesn't have any pictures of the fit. Surprise surprise.

    The second on makes custom covers on request and has an option for a Goretex outer layer! Really cool but I'm not about to drop $1100+ on a car cover.
