Our Marketing Team Hates Us
Quick Covers panels fit so well, you can’t even tell they’re on. It’s difficult to show this in marketing pictures—most customers can’t believe it’s the same truck. The painted panels look like metal, and fit almost seamlessly onto the truck. Even the textured covers look like they might be a factory option. 11 years of experimentation has led to this day.
At Shaffer’s Auto Body (the place where the idea of Quick Covers was born), our special power was performing top notch auto body repair with amazing customer service. We were one of the only shops willing to accept rust work. Our name spread far and wide as people came to get their rusty trucks fixed. But we hated it.
We love automobiles. It’s our passion. But pulling somebody's prized truck apart to fix a small part of it hurt us. At that time, there was no better option. Those who could afford it, shelled out thousands of dollars and left behind their vehicles for many days in the shop. We had to turn a lot of customers away.
There had to be a better way. We tinkered with experiments, each one better than the last but still not good enough. First came slip-on steel covers, then we started hand-forming custom covers out of stainless steel (so they would last longer before rusting again).
That was a phenomenal development, but it still wasn’t an affordable option for most truck owners.
Why Not Steel?
We considered dozens of materials, and then narrowed it down and tested 5 for rigidity, impact resistance, and quality of final finish. The ABS plastic was the clear winner in all these tests. Now, instead of hand-forming stainless steel panels we could use a state-of-the-art manufacturing process which brought the cost of production down immensely. Now we could provide all car owners with this amazing advancement—easy to install, affordable, and custom-fit to each vehicle. Part of us wanted to keep this amazing product for ourselves. But a larger part of us wanted to share this phenomenal development with automobile lovers all across the United States. We separated the product from the body shop, started a new LLC, and quickly built up a solid customer base.
Made in the USA 🇺🇸
When we started out, we had zero experience in plastic thermoforming - which is the manufacturing process we use to make our covers. We can’t share too much without giving away trade secrets, but what we can tell you is that making a product that looks and fits perfectly turned out to be an order of magnitude more difficult than we thought it would be. The engineering process and manufacturing process is something we failed at multiple times. We tried outsourcing several different times with different people , and spent tens of thousands of dollars. It was all for naught. The results were basically the same poor quality products that were already on the market. If we wanted to make a superior product, we learned the hard way, we’d have to make it ourselves.
Today, we design, engineer, and manufacture all our products in-house, right here in the USA.

These covers are awesome! Due to heavy rust I needed the quick brackets which fit perfectly and gave me a solid support to attach the covers to. I chose the textured version to eliminate the need to paint them for my black extended cab Silverado and it looks great, you can't even tell they're there. Everything fit properly and was easy to install. The prep work took a little longer then expected but I took an extra step and sealed everything with Spray rust reformer before the grease and like-90 spray. Everything I needed including the hardware was included with the kit which is really nice. I'm very happy with the results and plan to get many more years out of my old pickup.
The covers look great. Have not installed yet I’m waiting for my paint to arrive. Can’t wait to put them on.
The Quick Covers were as advertised. Because I am not a professional, I was not able to install them as easily as the videos, but they did go on without any major problems. They look good - I painted them myself, so the paint job doesn’t look professional, but I’m happy with it. Now I want to see how they look in five years.
Highly recommend these quick covers because they are seamless and hardly noticeable once they are installed.
These came out great. I would buy again for sure. I do wish that the quick brackets I purchased would have been a little thicker. They are kind of flimsy when installing if you do not hold them right they will bend in half. but very easy to install and great product.
