elasticated, profiled, car dust covers, trading as QCC in Cheshire. We rang him on 01606 557728 and he told us he could make a cover for an Austin 7 ( or indeed for any other make and model of car). All covers, which are machine washable and can be tumble dried, are made to order. We placed an order and he said “ if you are completely satisfied with the cover when it arrives, you might like to send me a cheque”!  Two days later the cover arrived and is indeed just perfect. What an excellent service.   Des and Bridget Gauntlett
