    Sorry for the delay. Its basically a removeable metal shell. On top of that, we used the material that goes under stucco (forgot the name). Covered the entire shell with this material. I was still getting lots of blowby. So doubled up a mesh tarp. Feel free to ask anymore questions. Thanks, J

    Truly,
    Try getting concrete debris tarps. Very sturdy, durable and multi functional. It should come in a big roll at a contractor supply house. You can cut what you need to cover the top. Use a grommet set to make holes or weave/sew in a 1/2 braided rope around the edges. The debris tarps are what we use to pull loads of leaves and brush from the back yard to the front(old grunt style). After 4 years we finally wore our first one out.
    By the way, Great Set Up!!!!

    Truly,
    I was a bit wrong in naming. It is just referred to as a debris tarp. Here is a link. It is a bit pricey but it last for a very long time.
