    I have a black '05 Tacoma and I work at a construction company where there's a lot of painting that goes on daily. I really need to either get a car cover, or clay my truck every month because the overspray gets pretty bad at times. I read the stickies and plan on doing a better detail than I usually do. but my questions is...

    Working at a place where 90% of the ground is limestone and dirt and when the wind blows its like a huge dust cloud in the area, would it be a good idea to get a car cover for protection from the overspray or would it do some harm to the paint from the wind possibly blowing limestone dust/dirt in between the truck and the cover?

    Agreed. There are no good options under the conditions you described.

    Yeah, I've been throwing that option out there. The gf and I were also thinking about switching cars during the week since she has an old 626 with a bad paint job. That'll work until she gets a new car.

    lol, fuck that's a catch-22. Drive to the construction site with overspray or let a woman drive a black vehicle. :rofl: man you gotta love those tough decisions.

    :werd: She drives it from time to time. She's just not used to parking in a lot with a car on each side. But she knows how I am about that. I usually park in a spot with noone one each side.
