Looks great! My wife made one for mine. Sure helps in the 100 degree days we get when i have to park outside.

I sure would have loved to have had her pattern, that would have cut time time by more than half. It would have fit better also.

Can you give us some details on materials and fittings. 

I don't have the dimensions but here's a quick sketch of the concept.

We used plain cheap cotton - BUT - this was made for one thing only which is reducing the heat build up in the hot summer days when we have to park outside. It is not good for rain protection and I wouldn't use it for that.
