5 of the Best Exterior Car Accessories

Having exterior accessories is essential for keeping your car in good condition. Many people focus on keeping the inside of a car clean, but the exterior can quickly deteriorate without proper care. One of the best exterior accessories available on the market are car covers. They protect your car, SUV, or truck from harsh weather conditions. UV rays can destroy the exterior paint on a car, and car covers are designed to block the sun’s rays.

In addition to car covers, there’s a variety of exterior accessories you can find on our online store that you can use to keep your vehicle looking good and performing optimally. From dusting kits to ice scrapers to a gust strap, these are the best exterior car accessories you need.

1. Platinum Shield Car Cover

If you are looking for the best possible car cover, the platinum shield car cover is an excellent choice to protect your vehicle. People who live in areas with extreme weather changes need a high-quality cover to protect their vehicle from rain, hail, snow, and extreme heat. People who live in wooded areas often find the exterior of their car gets easily damaged. The Platinum Shield cover is a multi-layered outdoors cover that effectively protects from tree sap, dust, and other harmful pollutants. Also, the fabric is made from durable materials that naturally resist mold or mildew in very humid areas.

Protect Your Vehicle’s Exterior with a Car Cover

Overall, the Platinum Shield cover is an excellent outdoor car cover for cold, humid, and hot climates. The polyester material quickly repels water as soon as it touches the cover. It also protects your car from UV rays due to its reflective coating.

2. Black Satin Shield Car Cover

If you have a sports or luxury car, then the super-soft Black Satin Shield cover is the best option for you. This is an indoor car cover that provides excellent dust protection in your garage or undercover parking area. The polyester material is soft and flexible, so it easily stretches to fit your car snugly. This semi-custom car cover comes tailored to your car’s body to ensure an excellent fit. When buying a car cover, it’s better to choose one without mirror pockets since these are the first parts to deteriorate on a car cover. Look for designs that accommodate mirrors without pocketing them. The Black Satin Shield car cover also has double-stitched seams for added durability.

3. Gust Strap Wind Protector

A gust strap effectively secures the car cover on the car in areas with b winds or storms, so it doesn’t blow away. Our gust strap wind protector kit comes with two bungee cords and four clips to attach on the front and the back. A gust strap is easy to install in just a couple of minutes. The clips attach to the cover, and the bungee cords keep the cover tight from side to side.

4. Ice Scraper

Clearing snow and ice from your car can be difficult, especially the kind of ice that forms after a hard frost. That’s why one of the most useful tools you can purchase for your car is an ice scraper. This tool allows you to easily clear snow and ice from your vehicle, protecting windshields against frost-related cracks and chips.

5. Platinum Dusting Kit

Even if you protect your car with an excellent cover, it may still get dirty when you drive it around town or go on a road trip. That’s why having a car dusting kit in your trunk is useful for ensuring your car is spotless every time you hit the road. The kit comes with a microfiber car duster, two microfiber washing mitts, and six microfiber cloths. Microfiber cloths can also be used for drying your car after washing, as they are extremely absorbent, easily removing water from a car’s surface to prevent unsightly watermarks.
