COVERCRAFT PROTECTS RARE VAULT VEHICLES DURING PETERSEN MUSEUM RENOVATION

COVERCRAFT COVERS PROTECT RARE VAULT VEHICLES DURING PETERSEN MUSEUM RENOVATION

Pauls Valley, Okla. – July 30, 2015 – Before the historic Petersen Museum Vault was closed to facilitate the museum’s historic renovation project, the Executive Director turned to Covercraft Industries for custom-fit vehicle covers. Covercraft, the pioneer in car covers, partnered with Kimberly-Clark® to donate more than 100 custom made covers for the Vault’s world-renowned vehicle collection.

“We worked directly with Kimberly-Clark® on this project,” stated Marty Lichtmann. “The Block-it® Dustop® fabric was selected because it’s the thickest, most dust-resistant and softest material we offer for interior vehicle protection.”

To ensure a custom fit for each vehicle, the covers were made only after identifying the vehicles in the collection. Covercraft staff invested nearly a year making personal visits to the Vault to measure each vehicle on the list.
