Cover for K090

I got the cover for my 2019 K090 It is almost impossible to get it on over the rear view mirrors. Has any body else ran into this if you got the cover from Ford as I did? My 2006 cover fits so easy. Has any got one for the NGT from some outside vendor that works well?

There is definitely a technique to it. I find it easier to do it with the mirrors folded. First goes on pretty easy and second takes a little effort but if you get it aligned it will go relatively easy with a bit of a stretch before you go on or off.
Basic cover technique is to fold cover over in half, from front to rear or rear to front, so dirty touches dirty, then fold so clean touches clean. There is a natural fold point at the mirrors where you can work on them either as you are half way going on, or half way going off. Hope this makes sense.

I really like the Covercraft Satin Stretch covers. Gentle to the paint, lots if colors, room for mirrors and rear wing up and at a comparatively disposable price (although I've used some for 10+ years!)

The fit is quite tight on the mirrors. I bought the outdoor cover which is thick and heavy, and it actually broke off the passenger side mirror trying to tug the cover off of it, so be very careful. There is only a very fragile little piece of plastic inside that holds it together. Took 5 weeks for a replacement from Multimatic. It required replacing the entire assembly and taking apart the door for a small piece of plastic. Now I just drape it over the car and don't even fit it over the rear view mirrors. If you do fit it on the mirrors, then completely loosen it first, both front and back and sides from all around the car and then very carefully take it off one mirror and then the other.

Its a shame for the cost of the cover that it dose not fit right. I will not use it for fear I will break off a side mirror. Ford should step up and replace them. I will get a Black satin like ThamonGT or the one Blue Moose got

I guess my decision to NOT Pay $900+ for a New Ford GT Cover when I had 2-3 already paid off! I’m probably the only New GT owner who didn’t order a cover, but it was more principle than anything else after purchasing. $500,000 Car and having to pay for the cover! Come On! I’ll have a new picture of my cheap cover dressed up soon! PS My Mirrors Are Still Attached as my cover doesn’t destroy them! Good Day!

I bought one of the aftermarket covers but it is too baggy. It hides all the cool lines of the GT. The OEM indoor cover is like yoga pants on a beautiful woman. But some people prefer sweat pants. LOL!

I place the OEM cover over one mirror then go over to the opposite side, fold in that mirror half way, place the cover over that mirror & return the mirror to it's normal position. Then place the cover over the front & rear of the car. Simple & takes me less than 1 minute.

Tomy, you are not the only one who did not buy a cover. The Red Devil goes naked as well

I would think the cover supplier could take our covers and add in a wing up section. Kind of silly selling a 630k car adding a 4x normal $$ cover that you stretch (indoor) and leave the back up. I still have hopes that behind the scenes somone is working on the wing drift and or sewing in a section. Just the right thing to do.
