I tried to look up what this flap is called on the internet but had no luck.  We have an 18 inch Covington with a hood. Attached to the hood is a flap that has a "split" and when the hood is lowered the blade is surrounded by this flap, thereby catching the oil that would otherwise "spray' all over the place.

We need to replace this flexible flap.

Have any of you made one of the flaps on your own?  If so

What material did you use?

Where did you buy the material?

Thanks in advance!!!

I hate that plastic flap on my 16" Covington.

Try an upholstery shop & see if they have a scrap of clear heavy duty plastic. It's used for windows in some convertible tops on cars. Or else try an auto or tractor supply store for rubber gasket material. Just about anything that's flexible and not too thick would work.

Non woven fabric scrubbing pads, outdoor carpet, artificial turf, truck tire flaps, tire sidewall.  Look around the house.  You will almost certainly find something that will work.
