  • charlescarlisI intended to make a cover using the material, and still may - especially given what Bob said above - thought that silver backed tarp material from HF might work, but of course...cheap is cheap I guess.

    Yeah, the heavy duty silver one is what I bought. The HF manager denied knowing what UV protection was for a tarp.

  • klozhaldA tarp may be a good temporary option until you can find someone to sew something better, BUT do not get a cheap tarp. I bought the best tarp Harbor Freight sells and in 7 weeks it parted right down the middle as I touched it. There was no UV protection whatsoever. If you shop tarps online make sure the description specifically mentions UV coating or you are not getting it.
    Go here https://billboardtarps.com/ and look around. They sell old vinyl signs you could use as a cover, among other things.


    This is rather promising - though I no longer own the Juki sewing machine that would have been perfect for doing the work! I'll have to see what I can do. Right now all their used material is in black, but even the new material is reasonably priced from what I can see.
