Default Back of Panel Skirt

I've seen a fabric skirt that covers the exposed back of panel when the canopy is open. Anyone know where I can get one, or is this a job for Super-Wife?

I have seen them too, but decided not to. When the cool kids admire your work behind the panel the cover gets in the way.

I don’t think it’s appropriate to ask for pics of other guys wives...

Flightline makes a skirt for the other tip-up models. Not sure how that would work with the defrost fans.

I read somewhere that Flightline doesn't make a 14 skirt, something about the hinges for the canopy making it difficult to make a seal if I recall.

flight-line told me that the fans are the issue and haven't designed a clean way to work around them.
