hey guys,
i recently discovered an old army surplus parachute which my old man was hiding...God knows why, but he reckons the material is expensive...Anyhow i was thinking of using it for a car cover, ive heard this is a good material for it as it's silk. Any thoughts on this??? Also would anyone have a clue of how i could possibly modify it to fit my EL??
cheers

dont use the silk, get a proper car cover designed to keep water, dust, sunlight, etc off our car, silk is simply a very fine cloth, which means it wont do much more than gather fine particles of dust that will scratch your paint
