Default Where to find "fender covers" (to protect paint while working on the engine)

I seem to recall that some RL'ers have fender covers that cover the L/R rear fenders and the back including the tail lenses, which serve to protect the paint from accidental scratches while working on the engine compartment.

I have only seen pictures posted, never in person - they appeared to be made of a material resembling the old Colgan car bras.

If you have such a thingy or know where to find one, please post.

TIA

They are called service covers.

Ard, You're right about Colgan. IIRC, They originated the "bra" for Porsches and made the first service covers. They still do. www.colgancustom.com.
