Default Are there any canvas covers available?

Gentlemen: Now that I have my 1927 1-3/4hp Model "S" Economy hit-n-miss engine running like a "top", thanks to the posters of this board, I am wondering if someone is making available fitted canvas covers for such engines? I am thinking along the idea such as covers for barbeque grills, which, by the way, I looked at but I found nothing suitible. At engine shows, the "blue" plastic tarps with bungie cords are what is being used. A fitted cover would protect my investment from the elements and mis-haps that could occur during storage, etc. Thanking all of you as before, regards, Karl

I use the BBQ grill covers when they happen to fit a particular engine. Go to a shop that makes auto seat covers or truck tarps and they can make whatever.
