PanelVisor Multi Panel
PanelVisor™ protects engine panels from sun, knocks & water. This multi-panel style cover (MP-8.5) fits any panel up to 8½” across and 6½” high.
The clear cover protects against sun, rain, wash downs, and clumsy kicks.(It’s made of tough UV-resistant Lexan with a StarBoard frame and marine-grade fittings.) To provide maximum access to keys and controls, the friction hinges hold at any angle.
Everything for installation is provided except the drill — stainless hardware, positioning tape, and even the drill bit.
The optional shell provides strong protection from all those locker knocks. Installation is a breeze because it fits onto the same stainless hardware provided for the cover installation. The shell is made of ABS plastic with an amply cutout for cables to fit through.
