Bob Baker on Jay Leno’s Car Show
Founder of Bob’s Original Fender Covers talks to Jay Leno on “Jay Leno’s Garage” – Shot March 12, 2014
When innovators like Bob Baker create genius products like the Bob’s Original™ Fender Cover, they tend to get noticed. Jay Leno picked up on Bob’s product, and featured him on his car show called “Jay Leno’s Garage”. As you watch, Bob demonstrates the Premium fender cover on Jay’s Dodge Hemi Challenger, and the universal fender cover on Jay’s ‘56 Chrysler Imperial.
Jay Leno occasionally features small business owners on his show, and in this video he features Auto Fender Bibs. Shortly after shooting this episode, Bob Baker rebranded his company to Bob’s Original™ Fender Covers.
In the video, Jay and Bob discuss the effectiveness and uniqueness of the fender cover, and Jay remarks its ingenuity.
“It really is a great idea because when your car is broken, you immediately want to fix it right away. So you don’t think about [anything] you just get right in there and try to take care of it. You wind up cutting and scratching everything.” –Jay Leno
When the two met up to film the show segment, Jay gave Bob a tour of his garage. Jay Leno owns 130 cars and 93 motorcycles. He’s been collecting them for years and has started “Jay Leno’s Garage” to show them off to the public. Many of these cars are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, so he really saw the value in Bob’s Original™ Fender Covers. Some paint jobs can cost over $20,000 alone.

Bob, great job with your site. Congratulations on getting your dream off and running!!!! You have come a long way from your paper drawings!!!! I wish you slot of success on your product!!!!
Why did you say in your Jay Leno segment that the universal cover was $99 and now the lowest price on your website (for the universal) is $119? I realize it’s only $20, but that price point is what drew me here from Leno’s garage….. As a Chrysler service technician, I have a need for a universal cover to fit multiple vehicles. I work on anything from the low end Fiat 500 to the high end Viper and including trucks. I thought that your fender cover would me a great addition to my toolbox, but am disappointed that the price increased in such a short amount of time.
Thank you for your comment. We really appreciate hearing feedback from our customers.
Our segment with Jay was shot back in March of this year, and since then, we have upgraded the universal covers to come with a fender cover bag, worth $19.95.
But I have good news! For the holidays, we have put our universal covers on sale for $20 off! The promotion will expire 12/31/14, so you have a little while in case you would like to get a few at the lower price. Have a great day!
