    I'm thinking of buying a fleece blanket for this purpose. Looks like they are the same material as microfiber cloths. I can't find any microfiber cloths big enough. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I’m wanting to be sure to get something that won’t scratch my new paint for sure.

    Anything that doesn't stick in one place will scratch. IMO these are the only thing to use. There are knock offs on eBay too.

    Once you set them in place the will not slide and can't scratch. Thick and "cushiony" you still have to avoid leaning in the fender with you elbow (especially if you are big like me) but that goes for anything you use cover wise.
