A while back I was on here (and the Samba) asking about an engine cover. I think T_Town mentioned something about an engine cover for weather and what not when I originally bought the baja, but all of my searches were fruitless.

Finally a really awesome guy from Minnesota who was thinking along the same lines saw my post on the Samba. I emailed him the specs for my engine cage and he sewed it up within a couple of days. I've been using it for about a month now and it works great. Keeps water and dust and what not off while it's sitting in front of my house. Just have to see how it holds up in the AZ sun. Here's some pics.







And no, I don't normally keep it covered while it is in the garage because normally when it's in the garage I'm working on it, so that would be a bit complicated. But I needed to get pictures taken and it was garbage day, so the baja was in the garage.

No Im not afraid of them picking up the bug, although one guy asked if I wanted to sell it. But I live on a cul de sac and it's hard enough for the garbage man to get around. Leaving cars on the street (like my a-hole neighbors) makes it really hard, so both my cars have to be moved.

I would be a little worried about a garbage can hitting the car, I've put the cans out and found them 5-6 ft. from where they were, dunno if it was the garbage man or someone else. Confused

Thanks acoustic, its made from blue sparkly vinyl, a little thinner than I was hoping. And it has insulation where the stinger is and near the headers. The pictures don't show it very well because of the low light. I didn't pick sparkly vinyl, it was just what the guy had on hand.

1fasthoe, all I gotta say is no glove, no love...
