Hey all, just got my Model 3 on Monday been LOVING it so far!

Anyway, I live in Denver and I'm airline crew so I park uncovered at the airport for extended periods of time. Additionally, I don't have covered parking at home either. It's been a pretty bad thunderstorm season on the front range thus far and I fear hail damage.

Is there any kind of cover I can buy that will provide some protection from hail? I know that nothing will stop the really big stuff, but it would really suck to get my new car dinged up and wait for parts, or worst have the glass break and get flooded!

is this a unique to tesla problem? I would think that any car you owned would face the same problems from a hail storm.
