What do you use to cover your engine on your tank sprayers from the weather?

    The subject pretty well sums it up. Do they make like a "foil shower cap" for small engines? I recently purchased the Lesco 200 gallon space saver and would like something to protect it from the weather. I thought about something made out of foil so if I had to cover it while the muffler was still hot, I could do so. I am sure something like this has to be out in the market, but not sure where to look first. Would some sort of local dealer carry something like this?

    One of my buddies drilled and hinged togather a plexy glass box he made to fit over the motor with a flap to get to the motor and a opening for the muffler with foil riveted around the opening for the muffler.

    Just make sure your gas cap has a good seal, mine went bad and had to darain fuel tank, and get a new cap.
