Genset compartment door

Hey all have anyone thought of or has made some kinda of cover for the door with the expanded metal in it for ventilation to the genset compartment. Looking for ideas to make a removable panel to keep rain out when not in use.

Mine is under the 5th wheel overhang, so rain has never been an issue, but I see how it could be if yours is out, exposed. How about lining the inside of the expanded metal with duct tape? Or duct tape a cut piece of plexiglass (or heck, just a piece of hard plastic cut to fit,) again on the inside. Or if duct tape isn't your thing, you could secure that cut piece of plastic to the inside with RTV.

I used foam board painted black and duct tape on the inside of the door

Since I don't have generator from the factory, they left a plastic cover inside the compartment door behind the metal screen. I still need to seal the lower exhaust vent with some plastic and caulk.
