Uh..... Did you notice that there was a car cover under that plastic Roger?

The point of the plastic is to keep dust and bugs out during long term (many years) storage.

Does anyone have any cleaning tips for a really dirty car cover? The black may be mold. Don't know.

I wasnt referring to any photos. I simply said dont cover your car with plastic against the paint. Some people think they can just throw clear plastic or a plastic tarp over the car. I do that myself for short term, like when im just painting a part or two to keep overspray off. I never leave it on more than a few days and there usually is a coat of dust under it.

Gotcha!

Yes, definitely never put plastic or a tarp directly on the car's finish other than very short term. It will ruin a finish.
