    Question Anyone use or know of a good car canopy?

    Hello again!

    So I am trying to start detailing for cash. I am starting out real small . like at home small lol. I am wondering if there are any recommendations on a good car canopy. Looking for something that would be easy to put up and take down .. also it has to be stable on concrete on a drive way ... mainly due to windy days here.

    Really looking for this for obvious reasons .. shade to do polishing and keep the paint cooler .... and me.

    any info would be great .. thanks!

    I use a 13x13 canopy sold by Wallyworld. It's actually a 10x10 base with larger top that has extensions that hold the canopy out to 13'. Compact as a 10x10 but a little more coverage and not to bad for setting up by yourself. It definitely needs to be weighed though if you're out on a windy day. I use a couple buckets with water in them to weight it if needed.

    Thanks for the reply . not sure how I missed this earlier.

    So do you find that one seems to be pretty durable? Every single one that I have looked at online they all say how the broke in the wind.

    It's not particularly durable, but I've seen worse. The canopy top is showing some ware too.

    I think if you get something more heavy duty, it will be very heavy.
