Weather cover for Trail-air pin box

Started a new topic for this effort...I wanted to keep the pin box rubber components out of the weather and sun. So I am building my own cover using the same materials as used for a truck tonneau cover.

1. Designed in paper

I test fit the paper model and expanded the sides a bit but pretty close to what I want. Now working with materials...

3. Material has been received and most of the parts are cut out and ready for assembly

(Ordered 2 yards of material to ensure I had enough - looks like I only needed 1 yard.)

Just finished up the cover - my sewing ability is not great but it works.

Walter, that looks great! I'm using a Rubbermaid bucket, it looks terrible, but it works for now. I have this on my "to do" list after my solar project is completed.
