Thanks Kenny and quadcam.
I'll try to shed some light on the matter.
I was looking for nearly two years for a shaped to fit workshop cover.
Nothing to get. I only say some nasty Little Square on fleabay, and no padding, and no super soft inner side.
Anyway, I decided to make my own. So I bought some meters of this thick rubberbacked woven waterrepellant (etc) material, and likewise some meters of the thickest dark green fleece, I could find. Plus matching edgeband and two big rolls of dark green thread. One normal, and one extra strong (sewing with two threads: one for upper and one for under, and that later one have to be strong.).
Then I took some meters of thick paper from a roll I have, and used a pair of scissors and some painter tape, and mad up an apprx. model. THen I redid that, while taking care of the corners etc.
It's a bit tricky to see it fitting all over on paper, and then transfer that to the Black outer material. Then a copy of that on the thick green fleece.
The fleece is not at all stable in it's shape, so the Black outer material have to be made first.
When I cut the green fleece, I make it a bit bigger all around, so that there is enough material to sew it together underneath the outer material.
I am not completely finished yet, as I need to finalize the hooks and the cut-outs for the two exhausts.
Yes, it's quite thick and will surely help avoid any damages. That was one of the goals. The other is avoiding any spilling of fluids on to the paint.
I'll post a few pics when it's finishes.
