Hi Olie

I love the colour of your Sprint, one of my favourite - they look really smart in this colour.

I notice you have a really snug cover on it, do you mind me asking where you got it - haver you a full photo of it.


Hi Murdo,

The cover is just one I picked up from Rimmers. Its their 'Eclipse' outdoor cover - RX1734E. The fit is excellent, as is the quality of the fabric, straps are also provided that run just in front of the front and rear wheels underneath the car, which are handy for severe weather. Unfortunately I have no pictures of the cover fitted to the car on hand right now. The only consideration is that it does not have wing mirror pockets, so best to have the mirrors folded in before fitting the cover. Comparing it to the covers I have for my classic mini's the quality is far superior, I use stormforce covers on these, and usually after 12 - 18 months UV exposure has destroyed the fabric, the Eclipse cover on the Dolomite however seems to be holding up much better. Yes its not cheap, but feel its well worth it to protect the car.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Olie, I'll check it out.
