Spearheaded by the custom vehicle builders of Finish Line Speed Shop, project Dream Dart has received the generous support of a number of aftermarket companies including Covercraft.
“We’ve created a custom WeatherShield HP cover for the Dream Dart in gray and black with reflective welting,” said Mark Korros, CEO of Covercraft. “We are proud to contribute a custom cover to this project as a way to honor one of our Veterans.”

"It has been great working with Covercraft,” said Tim Spencer, the vehicle owner. "We did our research, and Covercraft was by far the best company to work with when it came to selecting a cover. They were a pleasure to work with, and created a custom-fit WeatherShield HP cover for us – it looks beautiful and keeps the car clean and well protected, both indoors and out."
Covercraft’s WeatherShield HP cover, custom made for the vehicle and utilizing the company’s new Digital Graphic Personalization, features the Covercraft and Goolsby Customs logos.
