I never thought of it before, but probably the best thing would be to get 1-3 large floor exercise mats, the ones about an inch thick.

1) They would probably be cheaper than a bunch of pool noodles. In the image, just the BACK has 6 noodles. That's JUST the first blue to the second red.

2) Probably easier to transport and store.

3) MUCH easier to install.

4) There's a good chance the pool noodles wouldn't be the correct length to cover the car.

5) The noodles still leave the sides exposed, including the windows.

I noticed it did not cover all the sides. I hadn't thought of the floor mats. But That would be way cheaper and easier. I have a mini van and that would definitely be the best way to make something similar for my vehicle.

It probably would depend on the size of the hail. I think those are more to protect against rain, sunlight damage, passenger compartment fabric and plastic discoloration and compartment plastic eventually developing cracks.

I think some fairly large hail would tear up the floor mats, but being about an inch thick they probably would still protect the car through one storm.

Really a good idea, if they were all tied together it would be quick to deploy and relatively cheap compared to repairs, I like it! Just dont forget to strap it down or end up like Brian...lol

That picture made me curious enough to search "hail protection". I am surprised at all the fairly cheap car covers they have for this purpose.

Aside from cost, the problem with them is their physical size. Think of how many there are, plus the size of each. Where would you put that many?

Dollar Store... the bigger issue is the Zip Ties, and scratching the paint and how do you stop it from falling off in the wind? (as it usually accompanies the hail)
